I love Cafe bustelo, I was raised on this coffee and remember when my father used to take the coffee beans and grind them first. Then he would put it in boiling water in a pot on the stove, while heating up the milk until it got the froth. Then he would take the coffee with the grinds and strain through a beige material strainer that had a wooden handle. One it was completely strained he would then squeeze to get the last little bits left, pour some in a cup, scoop the hot milk with the froth and pour it in the coffee in the cup and then add on or two sugar cubes and make sure it is serves on a saucer with the tiny spoon to stir it. And as etiquette goes, he showed and explained how before you can enjoy it, you must first enjoy the aroma, the process it took to get to the final result. Then you slowly take the small spoon stir the sugar in your cup and grab the cup with you thumb and forefinger, whilst you have your pinky in the air and sipping it slowly, enjoying every bit of it.

I get up really early for work so I need a coffee that's going to give the kick I need, and cafe bustelo is it. It's espresso grade so the caffeine and taste is better than most coffees. I'm Not normally a hot coffee drinker, I'm iced all the way. So I drink this occasionally hot or I make a cold brew concentrate with it which is amazing! I've found the party size container at target which is 2lbs and its lasts me and boyfriend (an avid hot coffee drinker) at least tree months if not more.

Hands down one of thee best espressos I've ever had. I make mine in both a standard espresso machine and a stove top moka pot-- both ways make for a delicious shot (or 2..or 3..!) every time. Delicious, bold, chocolatey flavor that never gets stale in the can. A side note: it really helps if you only make this espresso in an espresso maker..it makes all the difference as far as taste goes..and stove top moka pots can be found for very cheap (under $15) at places like Target! :)

This is definitely my favorite type of ground coffee. There is always a large container at work I use and K-cup are always in the house. I like the espresso roast. It is a fine ground coffee so you get the most flavor out if it when it is brewed. It is strong without being overpowering or bitter. I always suggest it to people when they want large containers of coffee but don't want the usual Folgers or the like. And in a bright yellow container it can't be missed!

Being an Italian I can't go about my day without a cup of espresso coffee and that's where my real problem was, Italian espresso coffee was expensive and difficult to find until I finally decided to give cafe bustelo a try and I can honestly say that I won't regret that day, this coffee is not only much cheaper but it is also great and has an amazing taste and aroma that it sure wakes you up in the morning.

Okay.... this is the greatest thing I have stumbled upon! It was in Target cartwheel for 25% off recently and it equaled the same as my other brand I usually purchase. I gave it a shot and WOW! It packs a caffeine punch this tired out mama needed! It also tastes rich (I drink it black) and not watered down. It's very smooth, smells amazing when brewing and is so well priced. My go-to purchase from now on.

I've been brewing coffee at home to save on costs and Cafe Bustelo Cafe Espresso had been one of my favorites. It's a smooth, bold taste that can stand up to the sugar and creamer that I use in it. I normally purchase mine from Target or Walmart and the price is pretty decent. Right now, because the weather is hot, I haven't been brewing it as often but once the first cold snap hits, I'll be back!

I'm an avid coffee drinker who definitely shouldn't be with severe acid reflux and Crohns and if I had to recommend any coffee this would be the one. This coffee doesn't both either issue and it's really smooth. I've spent many nights talking over a pot or two of this coffee and have never been disappointed nor have my guest. For a smooth comforting cup of goodness I'd recommend you try it.

This is my absolute favorite espresso. My dad was born in Italy and is very picky about his espresso and this is the one we keep in the house. In the morning I use his espresso machine and make a nice small cup and it gets me wired! I am so energized I don't need anything for the rest of the work day. Sometimes I even pour it on ice and almond milk and mix it up to make iced coffee <3

I cant believe this product is so affordable because i would have expected for it to be on the big name brand price i recommend this item to anyone who really enjoys a strong cup of coffee and not to be surprised when you fall in love with the texture and smooth taste. I love this so much i rather make my own cup of coffee than go to Starbucks and purchase a cup from there personally.
