Default Illy or Lavazza?

I am embarrassed to admit that I have only recently discovered these two coffee brands. I used to only get Liberica beans (Philippine coffee) from a local supplier, and this coffee is really good for kickstarting your day! Now, I find myself drinking more of Illy and Lavazza. Any others who prefer these brands? If so, which one is better for you and why?

What I've had of theirs hasn't been too bad, considering, but I think
the best coffee is usually going to something that's fresher -- and in
most cases that's going to be something a bit more local. Coffee
doesn't seem like the sort of thing that's very well suited to large
international brands.

Assuming you don't live in the boondocks I guess...

The boondocks - that's where I get my everyday coffee from.
