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 Coffee

By Joe

from Finger Lakes

Comments about Starbucks® French Roast, Whole Bean:

My 1st bag of coffee of 3 was excellent, 5 stars. 2nd bag is bland, flat, and as dull as a can of store brand but without the metalic flavor highlights (2 stars). Really not looking forward to the 3rd bag and have a trip to my local (40 mile drive) roaster planned again. I was hoping to save the drive by ordering from starbucks but the inconsistant quality is not worth it. Peet's has the same problem. I don't understand it because my local roaster can give me a 5 star roast almost every time though he does slip to a 4 star during the summer months. I would like to find someone who is willing to make the adjustment of keeping their coffee cool and dry during the summer because the coffee flavor suffers noticably.

Always my first choice

By Ken B.

from Jacksonville, Florida

Comments about Starbucks® French Roast, Whole Bean:

This French Roast has been my go-to coffee for years. I've been grinding my own beans since about 1995 and started using a press a couple of years ago. I absolutely love the smoothness of this coffee.
