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.
Anyone so limited as to be able to spell a word only one way is severely handicapped.

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,
