We use 100% natural roasted arabica coffee to create a blend of instant and microground coffee, so you can experience its intense, smoky flavor anytime, anywhere. Just tear open a packet, add water, wait 10 seconds, and stir. Then enjoy the deep, dark flavor of French Roast.

The Starbucks Roast
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 flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.
- Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
- Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
- Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.
