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. We source 100% arabica beans when crafting our coffee. Each coffee bean requires a unique balance of temperature and time to reach its individual peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor.Our French Roast is crafted with beans sourced from multiple regions—Latin America and Asia-Pacific. The blending of beans from varied regions results in unique flavor combinations. The Starbucks Difference: It's where sustainable and ethical sourcing meet to create a long-term supply of high-quality coffee and positively affect the lives and livelihoods of coffee farmers and their communities. Starbucks, in pursuit of premium quality coffee, sources beans from more than 30 coffee-producing countries located within the "Coffee Belt." As a result, we have instituted our own set of comprehensive guidelines to help ensure the coffee we buy is ethically grown and responsibly traded.
