NOTE: Actual product packaging may differ from image shown.
Starbucks is currently going through a packaging redesign. Coffees are now categorized by roast – each with its own color mark (yellow for Blonde roast, orange for Medium roast and purple for Dark roast). Now you can easily find the roast you like and the blend you like within that roast.
Tasting Notes: Intense & Smoky
Flavor Intensity: Extra Bold
French Roast. French is all about the roast. It's our darkest and boldest and not for the faint of heart. We roast the beans to their edge for a singular smoky flavor. And that's the French Roast calling card. Normally you wouldn't expect such a bang from a coffee with low acidity and virtually no body, but this is no ordinary brew. It's a delectably roasty cup, intense and uncompromising.
Enjoy with: An onion bagel with chives and some lox.
Our Dark Roasts. We roast coffees darker to achieve specific flavors-from subtle notes of caramelized sugar to a bold smoky taste. It takes special beans to go this dark. Anything other than dense, high-grown Arabica beans will turn to ash and leave an unpleasant finish. But when a good bean meets a skilled roaster, ah, that's something to be reckoned with.
The Starbucks Roast
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 | Medium | Dark
