Our darkest, boldest coffee that's ready in an instant, Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast has surprisingly low acidity and a light body.

We use 100% natural roasted arabica coffee to create a blend of instant and microground coffee, so you can experience its intense, smoky flavor anytime, anywhere. Just tear open a packet, add water, wait 10 seconds, and stir. Then enjoy the deep, dark flavor of French Roast.

Did You Know?

All Starbucks VIA® coffees are made with the same quality coffee beans as our whole bean coffees and are also produced under the guidelines of our C.A.F.E. (Coffee and Farmer Equity) Practices.

Blonde Medium Dark

Full-Bodied & Bold

Tasting Notes Intense & Smoky

Region multi-region

It doesn't matter where you are—on a camping trip, a boat or even at the office—it's always easy to make a cup of Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew. Just follow these steps to instant satisfaction and a perfect cup of coffee.

  1. Pour in packet.
  2. Add hot water.
  3. Stir and enjoy.

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.

My favorite

By Lazy Latte Drinker

from Oregon

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

Since I drink one or two lattes each morning, I simply can't keep coffee fresh, bean or ground. French Roast Via works the best for me. About one third cup of milk, heated in the microwave, then coffee and hot water. Each little packet is fresh.

Please offer this in large size

By Roxann

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

I am hooked on Via because of the great taste and ease of use. French roast, yo me, is the best by far and I wish I could buy it in the large pack.......instead I have to buy the Italian roast, which is not my favorite.

great substitute for fresh brewed

By Meems

from Bend, OR

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

When you are in a hurry or on the road and can't brew a fresh cup, Starbucks VIA are the best. I especially enjoy French Roast- you get the full rich flavor. Italian Roast (both regular and decaf) also very good

Not happy with 48 count

By Mickie

from Sarasota FL

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

I wished the 48 count would have been in one container. Hard to store a bunch of small packs in my desk at work.

Why don't they sell the French roast any more at Starbucks. Can only get it on line.

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

I use the VIA Ready Brew French Roast nearly everyday. I love the bold flavor and taste! The useful Via Ready Brews are great to travel with. I also make sure I take several packets with us to use in Hotels rooms!

bold brew

By blp

from Houston, TX

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

Great product to travel with as in-room hotel coffee makers drip awfully weak cuppajoe. Most restaurants serve the weaker drip, too. Wish Starbucks retail stores would stock this instant French Roast. The only way to purchase is on-line. And, when will a Via French roast decaf b available ??

Comments about Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew French Roast:

I can't get to a Starbucks store everyday so I rely on the Via as the back up plan. Dark roasted is a lovely choice.
