  • How to Brew
  • The Starbucks Roast
  • Did you know?

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.

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.

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.

  • Product Details

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.

    why can't I buy this anymore in stores This has to be the best flavor via that Starbucks has... pikes place is nice too though. I wish that this product wasnt taken off shelves plus came in a fifty count. I buy this product a lot and mix it up the night before. I used to mix it with a carmel coffee mix in water bottle. Now I use the iced coffee mix and one via. Starbucks used to have a vanilla coffee mix also. I hit my snooze and drink half and get up by next snooze alarm. BRING IT BACK :-) Joe September 10, 2014
    The Best Option for A Quick Lift I am unsure why this product can't be found in Starbuck's stores any more but that is a big mistake. This is the most full flavored of all the Via offerings: dark and rich with no "burned" taste. When I don't have time for a cup of press-brewed, this does the trick! August 22, 2014
    Best coffee ever! French roast is my favorite Via brew. Great, robust taste. Wish it came in packs of 50. Give me this bold, flavorful brew anytime. August 22, 2014
    Best instant coffee for travel! The French Roast Via is an excellent solution for travel or to cary in a purse for coffee emergencies. I prefer it to the Italian Roast and the other Via coffees. It is soluble in both hot and cold water and makes excellent ice coffee. I wish it were available in stores and in larger volume online. August 20, 2014
    quick and nice French Roast Via is a great "quickie"! Nothing fancy, just lots of flavor. It's cheaper by mail but I con"t know why you don't carry it in the stores around me anymore. August 4, 2014
