Basically, this is a no-brainer. First, this is all about money because we all know that this coffee is awesome and worth every penny. I will wax poetic for a second and talk about the taste. It's never bitter, always delicious right down to the last cup brewed. It is so good that I don't throw out the old coffee and make iced coffee out of it. Now, let's get back to the cost. Unless you live in NJ, you will save your sales tax. In Oakland, CA, I am saving 9% tax. I can get this on sale sometimes at the same price, but I still have to pay 9% tax. It shows up at work and I take the box home. Give half to my daughter, who is also addicted to Illy coffee. Recycle the shipping box. Life is good! Just order the coffee and feel the love!
The process of brewing is most important in producing a superior cup of coffee. This is a top shelf high priced coffee and worth it if one is a lover of great coffee. Rolling boiled water, 5minutes brewing and you will not be disappointed.
