Can you use an Italian roast for espresso?


Answer by  Binome (1975)

Yes. Any strong, bold, dark coffee can make a good espresso. Though really, if you prefer, you can use any coffee you want. The caffeine police won't stop you.

Italian roast would make good espresso. It is dark enough without tasting burnt like French roast. The key is getting a fine grind, and high enough water temperature and pressure.

Espresso is not any certain kind of roast, it is a method for making a type of drink. Thus, any type of bean can be used to make espresso. That said, the important part of making espresso is grinding the bean down to a very fine grain and then forcing hot water through at a very high pressure.
