What is a Dark Roast?

Dark roasted beans are roasted for longer than light, medium, and medium-dark beans. They’re almost always roasted past the second crack of the bean. This results in quite an oily bean with low acidity levels and deep, dark flavors.

Darkly roasted beans tend to create coffees with nutty, caramel, and chocolate flavors. Coffees prepared with dark roasted beans are richer in flavor than light roasted beans. This is one reason why dark roasted beans are usually recommended for cold brewing, a process that typically results in a mellower, sweeter coffee.

Most of the individual flavors of dark roast beans are roasted away during the longer roasting process, but dark roast coffees still offer a rich depth of flavor. This flavor comes from the roast profile rather than the bean itself. If you want to balance flavor with body, medium roast beans may be a good fit.

Origins

Italian Roast coffee is a dark roast coffee known for its intense flavor and bold, smoky characteristics. The term "Italian Roast" refers more to thea roast level rather than the origin of the beans. It’s often associated with Southern Italian coffee traditions, characterized by a shiny surface due to the oils released during the roasting process.

Italian Roast goes back to Italy's strong coffee culture, where dark roasts are popular. The coffee beans used for Italian Roast can vary, but they are typically high-quality Arabica or Robusta beans. The key to the Italian Roast's flavor profile lies in the roasting process, which is taken to a high temperature. This dark roasting brings out the natural sugars in the beans, caramelizes them, and imparts a strong, smoky flavor with a slightly sweet undertone.

LOVE THIS ITALIAN ROAST COFFEE

I'm a huge fan of Italian Roast and have purchased Starbucks for years. I will purchase Valorosa going forward. It is fantastic! And, I love that my purchase creates a donation to whichever non-profit I choose from their extensive list of charitable organizations.
