For the second year in a row Aldi’s Lazzio coffee range has been awarded the Canstar Award for being the Best Retail Coffee in Australia.
The annual review saw 899 Australians complete surveys between April to June 2022 on coffee brands they had purchased to grind and brew. The survey rated brands based on taste, aroma, texture, packaging, variety, value for money, and overall satisfaction.
The supermarket brand received five-star reviews for taste, variety, value for money, and overall satisfaction, also achieving four stars for aroma and packaging appeal.
Produced by Black Bag Roasters under the Nomad Coffee Group, the Lazzio range includes 100 per cent Arabica Fairtrade Organic Certified ground coffee that comes in either Peru or Honduras variety.
Below are the best brands of coffee found in the Canstar Blues 2022 review, with each brand meeting the minimum survey sample size of 30 responses.
- Lazzio Coffee
- Grinders Coffee Roasters
