  • How to Brew
  • The Starbucks Roast

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.

Starbucks® French Roast

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.

Available in whole bean or ground coffee.

Excellent Dark Roast Coffee I always like to start my day with a strong jolt of caffeine to get me through waking up and to get going. This French Roast by its self is a very rich aromatic coffee with a dark bold flavor. I like to make it strong to add to its already great taste. I you want to attack life in the morning then this is the coffee you April 15, 2014
Never disappointed, however... I really enjoy your coffee and especially like the one pound bag. However, I find the shape of the bag does not conform well to my canister shape. I Would love to see it shorter and fatter so I can avoid separating a small portion out for it to fit. April 15, 2014
Our favorite for years! French Roast has been our family favorite for years. It is really nice to have our subscription and get our French Roast pound regularly. We love the European influence of the taste and we make it almost espresso strength! April 6, 2014
