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.

Excellent and Bold Flavor

By Sharon

Comments about Starbucks® French Roast, Whole Bean:

My husband and I love Starbucks French Roast coffee. After grinding each day the aroma fills the kitchen with such a pleasant smell, and it is by far our favorite coffee. It has a bold, rich flavor with no bitterness. At Christmas we will get the Christmas blend to try, but the French Roast is our all year favorite.
