Tasting notes: Roasty & Sweet
Flavor Intensity: Extra Bold
Italian Roast. Coffee is an art form in Italy, and no one settles for a timid cup. So when we created a coffee that waves the Italian flag, we wanted something robust and expressive. Our roasters answered with a sturdy coffee that's darker than our Espresso Roast but not as smoky as French. We love it for its rich, roasty sweetness, medium body and clean finish.

Our Dark Roasts. We roast coffees darker to achieve specific flavors-from subtle notes of caramelized sugar to a bold smoky taste. It takes special beans to go this dark. Anything other than dense, high-grown Arabica beans will turn to ash and leave an unpleasant finish. But when a good bean meets a skilled roaster, ah, that's something to be reckoned with.
The Starbucks Roast
Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.
Blonde | Medium | Dark
