Intercontinental Italian Roast Gold

Type: Blends
Roast: Italian
Weight: 8 Grams
Shape: 62mm Flat Top

Applying an italian roast to a combination of coffees from Nicaragua, Peru, Indonesia, and Ethiopia to produce a memorably heady and intense cupping experience. Brian's first concoction is a cosmopolitan representation of the four primary coffee-producing continents. Our italian roast is darker than viennese but lighter than french.
