My name is Morag Halley and I purchased my first commercial machine to make my own perfect coffee at home in the mid 1990’s. I became a fan of coffee pods and set up my own company in 2006 and became a coffee pod supplier, beans and coffee machines. We then ventured out and became a premium Coffee Pod Supplier

I am a firm believer that, “Life’s too short to drink bad coffee”

Frequently Asked Questions


I have not shopped at la tazza before, and I am unsure what coffee I should try. Do you have recommendations? How do I choose the right coffee for me?

Arabica beans produce a smoother coffee and are preferred by black coffee drinkers. Combining Robusta beans with Arabica beans creates a more acidic coffee that works well with milk.

Lucaffe: Arabica, Colombia and Blucaffe
Molinari: Kenya and Guatemala

Does the coffee that la tazza sells come in the whole bean and ground?

We sell Italian brands: Lucaffe and Molinari in pod form (already ground, tamped and packaged), Lucaffe Nespresso-compatible capsules, and Lucaffe Beans.

What are the most popular coffees?

People’s tastes change, and what was once our most popular blend Lucaffe Mama Lucia has been replaced by Lucaffe Arabica.

Do you carry decaf coffee?

Yes, we stock Lucaffe Decaf.

How should I store my coffee?

Pods are already wrapped in a sealed foil pack and are airtight. Lucaffe capsules are biodegradable and need to be kept in their tin in a cool place and refrigerated. Beans and ground coffee should be kept in a sealed foil bag (preferably), and once opened, the bag should be rolled down as it is used and kept in the smallest airtight container available. Reducing exposure to air will keep your coffee fresher.

How do I brew great coffee at home?

The fresher the beans/coffee, the better. For best results, use pods or capsules.

What is fairtrade coffee?

Fairtrade coffee is certified as being produced to fairtrade standards by fair trade organizations. Partnerships based on; dialogue, transparency, and respect to achieve more significant equity in international trade.

What is a single-origin coffee?

Coffee labelled as a single origin can be traced to a single farm, farmer, producer, crop or region in one country. The opposite of single-origin coffee is blended coffee. When comparing single-origin coffee vs blended coffee, the main difference is that blended coffees come from multiple places.
