Italian Roast is an extra dark, oily roast made from Central American coffees for deep, heavy coffee flavor. Origin characteristics are diminished and acidity is non-existent.
Italian (alt. Dark French, Neapolitan, Spanish, Heavy) is the name applied to a degree of roast of coffee beans resulting in a very dark brown bean. In this roast, the beans pass the second crack.
Italian Roast is much darker and oilier than a French Roast and often preferred in Italy. If coffee is describing as being a French or Italian roast, it isn't because they were grown or roasted in these countries, just that the roaster utilized this generalized roast level for that blend of beans.

Fresh Coffee Taste Better
It is a proven fact that freshly roasted coffee taste far better within the first two weeks of roasting. In other words, this is because during the first couple weeks after roasting the aromatic compounds are largely present and bring their excitement to cup flavors. After about the 3rd week after the roast date, the aromatic compounds are beginning to slowly dissipate, causing the tastes to become less exciting in the cup.
