French roast is a category of dark roasted coffee characterized by an intense and smoky-sweet flavor, accompanied by a thin body and mouthfeel. As we roast our coffee darker, more coffee oils appear on the surface. In maintaining these attributes, French roast coffee beans are dark brown and shimmering with oil. Compared to lighter roasts, French roast coffee is far less acidic and often has a charred, charcoal-like note. (yes, that’s a good thing) Our French Roast is intensely bold and flavorful with dark rich glistening beans, pronounced smoky overtones, spicy notes, complex flavor, and a pleasant finish.
