Best Lavazza coffee machines

Lavazza is an old reliable name in home coffee in Australia, making coffee lovers happy for years.

And good quality home coffee has just become so much more accessible with the invention of the capsule coffee system currently taking Australia by storm. And Lavazza is one of the biggest names in it.

Using this system you buy a machine designed for capsule dispersion and set it up on your bench. Fresh hot coffee can then be made in the touch of one button; by popping in a capsule of freshly ground vacuum sealed coffee. The machine presses steaming water through hard packed grounds making a rich hot brew with thick silky crema, just like you are used to from your favourite café. The capsule contains the mess, no more grinding coffee yourself or getting little brown dust everywhere, and the systems are usually pretty easy to clean.

The capsules are excellent quality; no more supermarket instant coffee for you; and are fantastically priced, especially if you compare all the compatible ones available which match with the branded machines.

Some brands can get pretty big and pretty fancy, with machines costing thousands of dollars. Lavazza however are very reasonably priced; marketed more at the average Australian coffee lover, who is on a budget but still wouldn’t dream of depriving themselves of good coffee. They are easy to use and once you have one you’ll probably wonder how you did without it.
