Cafe switch from Illy to Lavazza? [moved from San Francisco Bay Area board

limefink | Jan 24, 2008 12:54 PM

I have a friend who serves Illy espresso in his
cafe. Illy is raising its prices about 12%
due to the euro's rise against the US dollar,
so he's thinking of switching to Lavazza, which
he thinks has a reputation about on par with
Illy's. The Lavazza is about 35% cheaper.

Is Lavazza in fact about as good as Illy?

What are the potential pitfalls to making
such a switch at a cafe?

Does Lavazza resemble Illy in their dealings
with cafes?
