Italian Roasted Beans

Recommended Posts

I have some "Italia Coffee Beans" which I got as a sample from somewhere for free. It quotes "Rich medium roast Italian coffee". I opened it and for a instant I thought I had opened a bag of coal. Medium roast? Black as the ace of spades. Smells and looks like it. I can't imagine what it would taste like :confused:

The only time this has happened to me was with the Starbucks 'medium roast' - medium roast my ass. The ashes of my dead granny make smoother coffee!!! Some "roasters" overdo it for various reasons - hide bad quality coffee, or to make what they perceive as 'Italian' roasts or just cos they don't know better.
