    Here's another pod out of the Hook Coffee (@hook_coffee) shotpods taster pack - The Godfather! This is one of those big, intense coffees, bitter with an acidic hit, but not overwhelmingly so - You can still taste the hints of spice and nuttiness under the bitter notes. The aftertaste is also bitter, but doesn't linger in a bad way. Overall, 3/5 - It's not off-putting or bad in any way, but I do prefer coffees with a bit more sweetness.

More Details

Roast Level: Italian
Italian roast coffee is one of the darkest roasts available, darker than what is typically labeled as "dark roast." The beans go to a higher temperature, which results in a glossy, dark brown appearance with an oily surface. The flavor profile of Italian roast coffee is characterized by its low acidity and heavy body, offering deep, rich, and sometimes charred or burnt flavors that hint at chocolate or caramel. However, the intensity of the roast often overshadows these. It is commonly used for espresso due to its strong taste and its thick, creamy consistency when brewed.
Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
