Starbucks® French Roast, Ground

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 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, 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 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.

The Grind

By Four-A-Day

from Norman, OK

It would be nice if Starbucks offered a variety of grinds on their online coffee the way many other select roasters do. Personally, I prefer an espresso grind over regular drip grind.

Fabulous coffee!!!

By Doxiemom

from Burlington, VT

See all my reviews

Although I enjoy all Starbuck's coffee, the French Roast is my go to for iced coffee. I buy it in store and have them grind it for me (love that they do that!) and make it at home using my French press. I keep a large container in my fridge at all times. Fantastic flavor!

The Only Coffee I Drink

By AuntB93

from St. Louis, MO

I want dark and rich! I want coffee that I can taste even when I abuse it by making "poor old lady mocha" which is diet cocoa made with coffee. This is it!

Wow great service from the phone!

By Grandma Viv

Verified Reviewer

I love my Starbucks and have it delivered to my home because it is a 40 mile r/t to have it at a Starbucks store. I just want to let you know that the coffee was as expected, EXCELLENT! The employee was even better. I felt he was listening to me and quickly solved the problem I was having, he needs to be patted on the back for great service.

Easy to buy.....

By Casey LOVES coffee

from Nokomis FL

I had a gift certificate which I used to purchase lots of coffee. And got free shipping, that made it even nicer!! Very easy to order what I wanted. They gave me an ETA on my package and I think it arrived a day earlier. Overall, very pleased with experience.

French Roast - Great Coffee

By Gmac

from Phoenix, AZ

I've used this brew for over a year and still love it. I've ordered a few other varieties, but have always come back to the French Roast.
