Starbucks® French Roast

Muted with oil, the tumbling beans become eerily silent. A master roaster watches, knowing that if he pushes them a second too long, they'll burst into flame. White smoke hangs down as the glistening beans turn ebony. This is French Roast, and you can't roast it darker. Straightforward, light-bodied with low acidity, and immensely popular since 1971, our darkest roast is adored for its intense smokiness.

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 10 g (2 tbsp) ground coffee for every 180 ml (6 fl oz) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavour, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavour. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavour and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavours.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavours.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavours.

Best coffee ever!!

By katesmudges

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

Since I had my first cup of Starbucks French Roast over 20 years ago, I have never bought any other whole bean coffee. My favourite method of preparation is with my ancient porcelain melitta cone filter and a fine grind. I make a strong, delicious cup of coffee and nothing compares in my mind.


We've been buying this for MANY years!

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

Starbucks French Roast coffee is our ONLY in-house coffee and we've been purchasing it for many years. It is ALWAYS excellent. As a result, we only drink coffee at home (or at a Starbucks if we're out and about).

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

Any Dark Roast from Starbucks is a wonderful way to start my day. I have subscribed to have the coffees delivered so I am never without.
There isn't any coffee out there that compares.
