A deep dark roast of our highest scoring African coffees offering a bold, rich coffee flavor. The beans are shiny with an oil sheen and offer a bittersweet flavor with low acidity.

 

French roast coffee is a type of coffee roast characterized by its dark color, shiny surface, and bold flavor. It is one of the darkest roast levels commonly available and is often associated with a strong, rich taste and smoky aroma.

Here are some key characteristics of French roast coffee:

1. **Roast Level**: French roast coffee is roasted to a high temperature, typically beyond the second crack stage of the roasting process. This results in a dark brown to nearly black color, with oils visible on the surface of the beans. The beans may appear shiny due to the oils.

2. **Flavor Profile**: French roast coffee is known for its bold and intense flavor. It often has a strong, smoky taste with low acidity and bitterness. The prolonged roasting process caramelizes the natural sugars in the beans, resulting in a slightly sweet undertone. However, the predominant flavors are deep and earthy, with hints of cocoa or burnt sugar.

3. **Body**: French roast coffee typically has a full-bodied and heavy mouthfeel. The oils released during the roasting process contribute to a smooth and rich texture.

4. **Aroma**: French roast coffee has a distinct aroma characterized by smokiness and earthiness. It may also have hints of charred wood or dark chocolate.

5. **Versatility**: French roast coffee is often used in espresso blends due to its strong flavor and ability to cut through milk. It can also be enjoyed as a brewed coffee, although its intensity may be too much for some palates when consumed black.

6. **Caffeine Content**: Contrary to popular belief, the caffeine content of coffee beans does not significantly change with the roast level. However, since French roast beans are roasted longer, some of the caffeine may be degraded during the process.

French roast coffee is a popular choice for those who enjoy a bold and robust coffee experience. It's commonly found in coffee shops and is available in both whole bean and ground forms for home brewing.
