How It Tastes

Intensely bold and flavorful. Pronounced smoky overtones with a pleasant bite.


The signature taste and rich coffee character of French Roast comes from a longer, hotter roast, which not all beans can handle. For our darkest roast, we select only top-quality Arabica coffee from the highest altitudes of prime Latin American growing regions. Beans mature slowly at these altitudes, becoming denser, harder and packed with flavor — perfect for retaining boldness and complexity under the intense heat of a deep roast. Peet's French Roast is not a coffee for the cautious, but for those who embrace the powerful taste, pronounced smoky overtones, and pleasant bite.

Worth Noting

This dark, deeply flavorful blend pairs well with cream and sugar, and inspires reactions like this one from John "Nic" Nicolini, a Peet's roaster for over 20 years: “On a normal day, I cup 50 coffees before 7 a.m. But I always come back to French. You inhale that smoky aroma, and then a subtle sweetness pops out that awakens your taste buds. It’s visceral.”

It is extremely Rich and tasty. Best Coffee. I switched from Starbucks few years back. Unless you want a glorified ARCO gas station coffee, then go with the rest....

I was a Barnies Coffee and Tea French Roast fanatic for years and years. I moved from Tennessee and searched the world over for a suitable replacement. Enter Petes! Love Pete's and now work for a company that only uses K-Cups. I am thrilled they offer them. The brewed ground is still the BEST, but the K-Cups are super close and the best dark, smooth French Roast K-cup I have found, and I have tried them all!

Very bold tasting French Roast for a coffee that is being brewed in a Keurig machine. It's smooth and has a smoky aroma that makes it a good wake-me-up morning cup of coffee. I drink it black with a teaspoon of raw sugar and it's the perfect cup to a dessert too. I wish they made the Decaf French Roast in the Kcups.
