Many coffee drinkers assert that the subtleties coffee flavor are harder to discern among the darker roasts. From personal experience, I've found this statement to be generally true. However, Barista Prima Coffeehouse, a company that bears the tagline “Rich. Dark. European”, is certainly not concerned with that notion as they've displayed a proven artisan ability to produce dark roasts that are teaming with complex yet very balanced flavors. One of their top blends is the Barista Prima Italian Roast, which boasts a rich and heavy-bodied cup that will satisfy the most refined Italian Roast drinkers.
Any coffee connoisseur knows that not all blends are created equal and in our opinion, that's especially true of all Italian Roasts. There is no doubt that the flavor is intense to say the very least. At the same time, it's not overwhelming. We'll, at least for someone who's put in many years of coffee drinking practice. But to a coffee beginner, there' s a good chance this may be too strong and could very well knock their proverbial socks off. The Barista Prima Italian Roast combines a powerfully bold taste that is masterfully tempered by subtle and complementary notes of ripe fruit and berry.
It's well-known that an Italian Roast in general isn't for everyone. The strength of flavor can be too much for the coffee drinker with the lighter palette. There is a strong aftertaste that may deter some. However, that's just the nature of the beast when it comes to Italian Roasts as it's this very same aftertaste that's so actively sought after by hard-to-please coffee drinkers. Like the flavoring of any beverage, it's all subjective.
The Braista Prima Italian Roast brings a uniquely authentic take on a an already widely popular coffee flavor. We reiterate that it may be a tad strong for those not used to the kick of an Italian Roast.
It's also available in a decaffeinated version as well.
