Starbucks® Italian Roast

My Starbucks Rewards
1 Star
Subscription Item:
1 lb
Intense with a rich, deep flavor and notes of caramelized sugar.
Availability:  This item is in stock.
This is Starbucks quintessential dark roast—expertly crafted to bring out sweetness and intensity.

It showcases the precision and skill of our roasters, who created a coffee that's slightly darker than our Espresso Roast without the smoky edge of French Roast. A great cup of coffee, it has a depth of flavor that holds its own with cream and sugar.

A Better Cup

We're committed to ethically sourcing and roasting the highest-quality arabica coffee in the world. When we buy coffee this way, it fosters a better future for farmers, and a more stable climate for the planet. It also helps create a long-term supply of the high-quality beans we've been carefully blending, roasting and packing fresh for more than 40 years.

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

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: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Very Strong Coffee

By SunnyOne

from North East Texas

See all my reviews

Italian Roast is a little acidic to drink straight, but works very well when a few beans are added to a gentler coffee.

This is the best coffee to wake up to in the morning. I use it in my press and the bold flavors are a wonderful eye opener to start your day.

Rich & flavorful

By Lucylocket

from Williamsville, NY, USA

Strong dark roast flavorful & delicious with some holiday nutmeg or a shot of eggnog or coconut milk nog. Family & friends enjoyed sharing this brew at breakfast before embarking on a skiing date at Holiday Valley in Ellicottville over the holiday. A very good price for this roast during a promotion.

Hard to find

By GramereC

from State College, PA

Italian Roast becomes harder to find everyday we have 3 generations of coffee drinkers and the youngest of them express other roast just do not taste coffee enough. All the Italusn Roast drinkers also brew in expresso pots not drop, perk or press.

bold & satisfying

By Theboynextdoor

from Troy, MI, USA

The italian roast has a slight sweetness to it. I find it bold and satisfying, as I do most good dark roasts. I give it two cups up, ranking behind my smokey favorite, French Roast.

The Best

By janie46

from Las Vegas, NV, USA

My husband and I like Italian roast a lot! this purchase was spectacular. Often when we go to purchase it in stores they don't have it in stock. So now we have 6 bags and at a fantastic price.
