What experts and laymen consider to be the ‘cream of the crop’ isn’t always the same.
On this website, we often talk about premium coffee beans from exotic regions. However, this article is more down to earth.
Instead, we take a closer look at what kind of beans, Amazon shoppers prefer to brew at home. To make it easy, we’ve compiled a list of the most highly-rated beans on the world’s largest e-commerce platform.
Take note, this isn’t our personal selection of “the best” coffee. Rather, it’s a reflection of popular opinion among a diverse audience.

1: Koffee Kult Dark Roast coffee beans

2: Lavazza Super Crema Whole Bean Coffee Blend
This mild and creamy medium espresso, which has notes of hazelnuts and brown sugar, is blended and roasted in Italy.
It has an aroma level of 4 out of 5, giving notes of honey, almonds and dried fruits to your espresso.
Reviewers love the rich and robust flavor of this coffee. One user did add that this isn’t for everyone, since it a very strong, dark roast coffee and people may find it too strong or bitter for their taste. But if that is the kind of coffee you prefer, then this brand is a solid option.
The only issue people seem to have with this blend is that they sometimes come across a rock in the coffee bag. But since Lavazza is an old and reliable company, I think the risk of that happening to you, is incredibly low.See more reviews
