Italian (alt. Dark French, Neapolitan, Spanish, Heavy) is the name applied to a degree of roast of coffee beans resulting in a very dark brown bean. In this Italian Roast, the beans pass a second crack. Italian roasted beans have a dark color and a shiny surface.
This Italian Roast Coffee has the best strong flavor without the bitter taste that most other dark roasts have. At this roast level, the beans are roasted past the “second crack”, at which point most of the oils and flavors come to the surface for a robust, sweet-but-charred flavor.
- Our darkest roast. A slow-roasted blend of specialty grade Arabica/Robusta.
