Lavazza is very limited with their choices though. It's like two regulars and a decaf. I think the mouthfeel of Lavazza is good but the overall nespresso is bettercapsule coffee-makers they call them I believe, and, at the risk of being stoned, I remember that the coffee from them was surprisingly decent. I think I liked Lavazza more than Nespresso though, but it's been ages...
As a former commercial coffee roaster I agree with this statement with some parameters. One, it has to be freshly roasted coffee from either yourself or a local roaster. Starbucks only has a handful of roasting facilities in the US to support all of their thousands of locations, so that means anything they sell is not freshly roasted. This would explain why many find Starbucks coffee to taste harsh...because basically it's stale coffee (or close to it). Two, it has to be freshly ground. Coffee beans contain oils that give them its nuances and complexity; once they are introduced to heat (roasting), they crack which thus starts the degeneration process (oils starts to escape). This is also true for #1. Starbucks claims to use freshly ground coffee, but that makes no difference if the coffee that they are using are already (or close to) the end the life cycle. In either case if it tastes a little rough, I will only add a little raw sugar to take off said roughness. It's not a contest to see how tough you are, that's not even the case with fine whiskey, so you score no points with me if you feel you have to muscle your way through something that is meant to be enjoyed.I love coffee, especially the filter. For me, the main thing in coffee is that there is no milk and sugar. Otherwise it is no longer coffee
