  • Italian Dark Roast Recommendations

    Hi

    i am looking for recommendations for local (ie roasted in Australia not roasted and packaged overseas eg Lilly, Lavatza etc) Italian Dark Roast bean for an e61 machine. I have for a long time enjoyed a dark roast from Coffex roasters. Looking now for something else to try.

    Have previously tried a few ‘bolder’ beans but come to conclusion I need a darker roast than a bolder bean.

    I mainly make long blacks , sometimes dash of milk and occasionally piccolos and lattes.

    I also drank Greek/Turkish/Balkan coffee for a long while so I like strong dark flavours

    Machine : Quick Mill Andreja Premium
    Grinder: Eureka Atom 60

    Cheers

    You say you want recommendations for something local, but you don't tell us where local is.

            Let me know what you think. They are at their best about 3 weeks post roast….but beans never last that long in my house!

          hyper hyper coffee roasters in Nowra:

          "Roaster Pip de Pulford specialises in authentic 50’s flavoursome mid / northern Italian style espresso. Having trained under Barry Constable whose knowledge of authentic espresso roasting originated in the 1950’s Florence cafe scene."
