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.

My husband enjoys French roast coffee the best! Says it has a good rich flavor.
Starbucks' French roast is my husband's and my favorite coffee! It has a unique flavor, a smoky quality, that we love. It has no sour taste like so many coffees have. We also enjoy the Espresso roast, which is a lovely coffee if French is too dark for you - but we'll go with the French every time. We've tried the Italian roast and found it to be much too bitter for our taste.
The flavor in most other coffee seems to sit on the back of the tongue, while the wonderful, full flavor in this French roast seems to infiltrates the senses of taste and smell.
The flavor is rich and bold without tasting burnt.
My summary says it all. I do love Starbucks coffee even though it costs more than some other coffees.
However, I love even more the fact that I got a discount on this order of a free pound.
I drink coffee only in the a.m. It keeps me awake at nite.
I purchased this for my husband and he loved it. It was an early Christmas present.
When it comes to Starbucks and a premium coffee on the market - this is the roast I recommend - There is no close second - This is their darkest roast
French Roast is the only coffee I buy because I love the flavor. I enjoy the other Starbucks coffees and teas but this is my go to roast.
As always, Starbucks French Roast is a huge hit at our office. It's the only coffee we use.
This is my morning brew. Has been for years. Rich, dark and wakes me up.
Loved the flavor even though it was a little strong. Great as iced coffee
