I have two of each capsule (and a few more of some) and so I should be able to get some reasonable comparisons. I plan to sample each as a single shot initially.
Here is the initial line up unless someone thinks of a better one.
Rico <---> Ristretto
Intenso <---> Arpeggio
Crema Dolce <---> Indriya
Tierra <---> Rosabaya
Amabile <---> Capricco
Delicato <---> Cosi
Espresso Decaffienato <---> Decaf Intenso
Decaf Soave <---> Decaf
I like this comparison chart but do you have more details of each capsule with regard to size, aromatic profile and intensity etc ? or maybe it's somewhere I don't know yet ? Thanks anyways.
Well, I'm not sure what size, aromatic profile or intensity mean, but each of the comparisons were reviewed in the thread although not in one place.

Does probably not help me in any way, but here's a company that offers mini-packs (50 capsules) ctespresso.com
Thanks for the info, I finally picked up a used (slightly at 202 capsule count) LavAzza BLUE LB2312. Ordered a couple of mixed packed from ctespresso so I'll be able to taste most of Lavazza's line. Of course I come back to the forum to get all the info that I need. Been gone way to long.
Can't wait till it shows,
Lavazza Blue LB 2312, Grindmaster OPOD, Nespresso Le Cube,
Breville "The milk Cafe" frother, Cuisinart SS-700C

I've used the Lavazza (LB2312) for a year and the Nespresso for a month.
They are both excellent systems. The Lavazza is more economical and more high tech. The Nespresso offers a wider variety of capsules.
The Nespresso by Kitchenaid is more decor friendly for our kitchen (or so my wife says!).
If anyone is interested in a gently used Lavazza Blue machine with a nice amount and variety of fresh capsules, let me know.
