  1. In the morning in France, a large cup of café au lait (coffee with milk) is drunk with a croissant. However, many French people also prefer simply a small café noir . “ French Coffee ” is a cup of strong black coffee with Grand Marnier, an orange liqueur, topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
    In Italy, the term “caffè” refers to an espresso.

  2. Roast coffee beans are probably the same. The way they’re drunk, and the quality are different
    The French like coffee. They drink it on social occasions, they happily drink instant sometimes. It’s not particularly strong, but obviously stronger than American coffee.
    The Italians eat, drink, breathe and live coffee. Morning to midnight and beyond. I wouldn’t be surprised if an Italian had a thermos of coffee beside their bed instead of water at night.
    Their coffee is strong. They try to make it stronger. One guy I know cold brews it. A half teaspoon is about as much as an ordinary coffee. The taste is usually extremely good, and somehow I occasionally get a coffee that’s almost as good as Colombian marching powder, it’s that good. And that could be just your local service station.

  3. I am a heavy drinker of strong French black coffee.
    never before that ristretto in Rome a few years back did I feel my heart pump.
    winner: Italy.

  4. Italian roast is much stronger and has a more bitter flavoring than a French roast. Italian roast is roasted a little bit longer to achieve a stronger flavor and darker roast. French roast has a little more caffeine and chlorogenic acid (antioxidants)

  5. It depends on what you mean by stronger. As you roast coffee longer, the flavor of the roast is pronounced (as opposed to the favor of the bean). Darker roasts tend to stand up to milk better. However, as you roast coffee of longer the caffeine content also decreases.
    So in other words, Italian roast will be more burnt in flavor, but will have less caffeine.

  6. They have equal strength.
    The subjective difference is in the roastiness of the flavor, determined by the darkness of roast.
    Italian being on the dark-roasted end of the spectrum, French roast being a little darker.
    (though in Japan, this appears to be reversed, with French being dark, and Italian roast being darker)

  7. Yes, some folks think French is strongest, but not quite. In terms of roast color and flavor, two roast ‘levels’ top the French…
    LIGHTEST > New England > American > French > Italian > Spanish > STRONGEST/DARKEST

  8. The strength of the brewed coffee has nothing to do with the roast level of the beans. It concerns the amount (ratio) of ground coffee to the amount of water used in the brewing process, all other parameters equal. Having said that, an Italian roast is slightly darker than a French roast. French roast beans reach 240 degrees C and the Italian roast beans reach 245 degrees C in the bean roasting process.
