On the bag, we are told that this ”is an Italian-style, dark roast, organic coffee with a flavour reminiscent of the robust, dark and strong characteristics of Italian coffee.” The roast level is ”3”.
For brewing, I used both my Bialetti Moka pot and the French press.
Either way, the results were less than appealing.
Now, Intenso was pretty intense indeed. There was a healthy dose of acidity, and some bitterness as well. I immediately got the impression that this was going the be a very flavorful blend. Ironically, however, the actual flavors were hard to detect. To be more precise, there seemed to be none to speak of.
Everything in Intenso made me think of those cheap (actually, a lot cheaper) Bellarom blends they sell in Lidl.
If that’s what you like, you might consider trying it. As for me, I would rather get a pack of Lavazza Qualità Oro.
