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.

A gift for my parents

By Paula O

from New Holstein Wi

My parents love Starbucks French Roast because it is low in acid and does not give them an upset stomach.

This was a gift for Mother's Day. Another order will be placed for Father's Day.

It's nice to be able to order something that I know they will use and appreciate.

Bold wonderful flavor

I usually buy the whole bean, but my granddaughter is in college now and doesn't have a coffee grinder. She loves my coffee, so I purchased the ground for her. It is an excellent coffee with bold flavor with no bitterness.
