Smoky and singular, the pure, explosive flavor of our darkest roast.

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.

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 is our favorite! Starbucks' French roast is my husband's and my favorite coffee! It has a unique flavor, a smoky quality, that we love. It has no sour taste like so many coffees have. We also enjoy the Espresso roast, which is a lovely coffee if French is too dark for you - but we'll go with the French every time. We've tried the Italian roast and found it to be much too bitter for our taste. The flavor in most other coffee seems to sit on the back of the tongue, while the wonderful, full flavor in this French roast seems to infiltrates the senses of taste and smell. December 16, 2014
wonderful cup of coffee This is a great, bold coffee. Has a great aroma & tastes wonderful! One of our favorites December 15, 2014
I was shocked at how average these beans were. Not much flavor, which is too bad since I ordered five pounds of the coffee. Pretty disappointed. I was shocked at how average these beans were.

Gifts I ordered this plus several other items as a gift for my nephew. He loves Starbucks French Roast and never drinks anything else. He loved the variety of items I got him and want to thank Starbucks for the great service. December 14, 2014
Perennial favorite Starbucks offers such a wide range of options, but we keep comin' back to French Roast because we've yet to find anything in the DARK ROAST family to compare. We drink it black and savor the zing! December 14, 2014
