Great italian coffee for people who like dark, bitter roasts.
on 12 September 2017
I've reviewed the Illy Medium Roast as a "neutral" type of italian coffee. The Illy Dark Roast is much stronger than the Medium roast. Good for use in espressos or cappucinos. Tastes quite bitter but good if you need a pick-me-up. My folks love this roast but I prefer the Medium roast so your mileage may vary.
+ Dark, strong, bitter taste.
+ Cheap if you buy it at 5 pounds per 250g can. Note that price hovers around 5 - 6.5 pounds.
+ Comes in a neat tin can.
- Bitter taste may not be liked by all.
- Sometimes it loses taste over long periods. I'd just chuck it in a cappucino if that happens.
- Solo packs are almost always more expensive than the double pack for some reason.
