Starbucks® French Roast, Whole Bean

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.

Roast:
Blonde Medium Dark

Full-Bodied & Bold

Tasting Notes Intense & Smoky

Region multi-region

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.

If you want a delicious rich blend at a great price

By Linda the coffee freak

from Akron, OH

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

If you want a delicious rich blend at a great price try the French Roast. Although I often change to Breakfast blend or Italian Roast I love the deep, rich complex flavors of French Roast. The beans grind very well releasing notes of chocolate with a slight sweet finish.

Love the coffee Hate that I earn no Star Rewards

By Birdie

from Virginia

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

I love the coffee and buy it exclusively along with the Espresso beans. Tastes great. Also love that the online stores sells the coffee in 1 lb baggs.

However I have learned that unless I load cash onto a Starbucks card and make purchases with it in the online store, I earn no Star Rewards. I paid with a credit card.

So I spent about $150 on coffee and get no reward for my loyalty. I'll probably lose my Gold Status too unless I change my payment method. Ugh

Great coffee....Lousy follow thru!!! I was told I'd get 50 stars for buying TWO pounds of coffee. Guess that must only apply to other people

The Best of the Best

By The Coffee Whisperer

from Akron, OH

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

Love the deep rich smokey flavor of French Roast. Holds up well when used in ice coffee. Can't say enough about how fresh the beans stay in the packaging they use for the whole beans.

Why do you hate me, America?

By Gill

from Staffordshire, UK.

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

This glorious coffee hasn't been available in England for years but fortunately I have family who like to holiday in the USA so can get the occasional bag. I love the rich flavour and the mouthfeel. Practically perfect in every way. The only downside is the way that, like all dark roasts, static makes such a mess when grinding.

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

What more can you say, its the best! Wish I could get a discount since I can't use my points here Coos Bay where I live. Safeway Starbucks doesn't except the rewards.
