Certified Fair Trade Organic. Heavy body with intense flavorDark roast lovers, rejoice! Very full bodied with an intense, smoky flavor, our Italian Roast coffee makes wonderful drip or French style coffee and great American style espresso. This is a very dark roast, although not as dark as our French Roast, which is extremely dark. Our Italian Roast features Costa Rican Tarrazu beans grown high in the Costa Rican mountains in the rich, volcanic soil that imparts to this coffee its distinctive characteristics. Open the bag, and you'll find ebony colored oily beans with sharp flavors of dark roasted nuts, a tangy acidity and medium body.
