You could go to Lucca, which is a beautiful city, and buy it there; flights
from London to nearby Pisa are very inexpensive:-)

However, you're probably looking for these guys:

Where you will find this copy for [gasp] 100% robusta coffee!:

"Miscela Zeta Prepared with an expert combination of the best
varieties of Robusta. Strong and distintive flavour, fragrant aroma,
abundant cream. It is ideal for the simple recipes of the
countryside, competing with the strongest flagrances. It perfectly
harmonizes with any liqueurs, particularly for the well-known "Ponce
alla Livornese". Rich caffeine content."

Yee gawds...

I've had coffee in a Bei e Nannini bar in Pisa, and thought it was OK. It
was likely not their all-robusta blend, but who knows - I've never claimed
to have good taste in beans. Besides, I was drinking a macchiato.

We had a break in and around Pisa and Lucca in the summer, and I found
(through fairly extensive sampling) that caffes with Bei & Nannini coffee
seemed very good (better than Jolly at least) - so I bought a pack for my
morning Moka brew in the appartment we were renting and even brought some
more home.

The odd thing is that they have two basic blends: delicato and forte.
Knowing the Italian prediliction for Robusta, I plumped for the delicato as
more likely to be 100% arabica (there was no information on the packs). Now,
looking at the website, I see it is the forte (strong) that is described as
all arabica, and the delicato is robustiferous. Can't say I noticed (it was
preground...).

One of the delights of being in Italy was the chance to enjoy 'stand up
coffee' - espresso at the bar in a caffe, with the price fixed (by law or
competition, I don't know) at 80cents (that's about ... 80 cents in US
terms). Almost every shot was good (and quick); I don't know anywhere else
that gives you such quality, consistency and convenience at that price.
Travelling with young children, I didn't want to hang around in a caffe
anyway, so the 'discomfort' wasn't an issue (if you sit down, the price
normally doubles).

For extra confusion, there's a grand old caffe-bakery-patisserie down the
road in Siena called Nannini. They roast their own coffee too, but there is
no connexion as far as I can tell. If you are ever in the area, a coffee
there is a great experience (the biscotti are a bit pricey though...)

Most Italian cafes have such fabulous hot chocolate that it is hard to keep
your children from dragging you into the place.
