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.

Bitter My personal Taste does not care at all for the Italian Roast Coffee. To me it was bitter and had a strong taste to it. I use the Espresso, and Veranda in the Dark roast and love them. Not I have a bag of Italian Roast Beans and don't know what to do with them. Tried 3 separate times and do not care for it. March 2, 2015
Perfect flavor for a nice cup of coffee. I love a nice cup of coffee to unwind from my day. This is the perfect blend for me. February 21, 2015
Very Strong Coffee Italian Roast is a little acidic to drink straight, but works very well when a few beans are added to a gentler coffee. February 19, 2015
GREAT TASTE 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. February 1, 2015
Rich & flavorful 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.

Coffee in the morning...keeping it simple...

Comments about Starbucks® Italian Roast:

Thank you Starbucks for a Fair Trade Dark Sweet Roast that I enjoy everyday. The most complicated part of the day is the moment you wake and the day begins... many hands and many lives have already worked a miracle to bring me a cup of coffee... so in a complicated world of bright promising sun rises and yet many lives challenged by difficult situations...I pause, give thanks and hold a warm cup of Italian Roast and my day begins. With every sip....every breath.. I seek to make the next moment as sweet as the coffee I enjoy....for all I meet...all I share life with. Keep it simple my grateful...choose kind...that cup of coffee you hold in your nothing less than a miracle.

I've tried most of the Starbucks coffee varieties but I keep coming back to Italian Roast as my favorite for making delicious, strong Americano coffee on my home expresso machine.
