About this Item

Musk, dried peaches. roasted chestnut, a wee hint of Barbados molasses, vanilla and almond

In the North of Italy, along Italy's Alpen border with Austria coffee is roasted as light a cinnamon. As you move South to Rome the beans become more like a chestnut brown in color, and South of Naples, the Italian roasting tradition becomes darker and darker. Cross over to Sicily, and the roast is a glistening ebony. Because the first substantial Italian community in New York was Sicilian we New Yorkers thought all Italy roasted "black," and so the bean color our new customers wanted was, "Italian" to us. With a respectful nod to my departed friend Ernesto Illy, I have lived and learned. Still, the name "Italian" shines on the labels of the darkest beans from traditional New York roasting houses.

Mellow Brazils, off-the-green Centrals were made to be dark roasted together. Italian has a robust quality with burnished brown musky flavors, and a long-stored dried peaches roundness. The darker roast brings out a chestnut complexity, and. In the vanilla candy finish there is something of mixed almond, and walnut. Designed as a platform for steamed milk espresso beverages. Rich Dark Roast™
