Finding equivalent to NY coffee in Paris

tinpanalley | Oct 17, 2012 05:26 PM

Hello all,
In NY, Zabar's and Fairway both offered coffee beans in roasts called Italian and French. I'm in Paris and curious about whether there is anything at all that is the same and a shop I could go to that would offer it. What exactly would I be asking for, as I assume that "French roast" and "Italian roast" aren't terms that are used in Europe. Do I just ask for strong roasted Arabica beans?

Thank you!!
