About this coffee


Coffee Story

Named for the dark roasting style common in southern Italy, this deep, demanding roast is truly an art to achieve. It challenges even our most experienced roaster craftsmen, relying on their sharp senses to develop the bold, broad flavor palette of the fullest-bodied, most flavorful beans from Latin America and the Pacific. Watching, listening, and smelling the beans throughout the long, slow process, our masterful roasters wait patiently for the brief moment when these premium beans reach dark roasted perfection.

The intensity of our Italian Roast demands beans that are strong enough to hold up, which is why we select only the best high-altitude coffees for their depth and density. The vigorous flavors and balanced, complex aromas make for a boldly perfect cup that's poised between our signature Deep Roast and our French.

Brewing Tips

We think Italian Roast is excellent for espresso, especially for those who enjoy it with a darker roast — of course, the powerful, full-bodied flavor also comes to life nicely in a classic Italian stovetop coffee maker.

I've hated coffee all my life. If I had it, it was for the caffeine, and it would be cream, and sugar with a hint of coffee basically. Until about three years ago; my coffee obsessed friend got me to try Peet's Italian Roast. I no longer hate coffee, or add anything to it. This Roast is very special to me; it reminds me almost of eating food, like a delicious bread. Every sip is such a truly fantastic experience.

This is my favorite coffee for all uses, but remember to properly grind for the machine you are using. Purchasing pre-ground in the grocery store will not be a fine enough grind for espresso machines.
I always purchase Whole Bean direct from Peets online. Order 3 pounds and save on shipping.

Our favorite coffee used to be the French Roast but we have switched to the Italian roast after a trip to Tuscany. It seems to be richer and fuller and has a bit of a bite to it. I use it in my press and my husband uses it ground for espresso in his espresso maker. The Italian is our favorite at the moment.

I like the Italian Roast for its straightforward deep flavor.
