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.

French Roast that delivers at a price

By High-In-The-Heights

from University Heights, Ohio

Comments about Starbucks French Roast, Whole Bean:

The Starbucks "French Roast" coffee is my absolute favorite. It's my daily AM coffee. There isn't any downside to "French Roast" other than the cost. The shame is that the coffee is so good that I'm forced to pay the price.

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.
