French Roast


(16 customer reviews)



Black as we can get it! Slow roasting for 17 mins at up to 467 degrees produces a strong, distinctive taste, much favored by the coffee die-hards. Not for the squeamish!


The beans are a blend of high altitude, hard bean coffees from South America that can withstand such harsh treatment and don’t fall apart under pressure! You’ll notice very few broken beans in our French Roast – a good sign that we’ve used quality beans and treated them with care.

    The best. Delicious.

    I can’t start my day without my Steaming Bean French Roast. Even when traveling, it’s the first thing I pack. Love it!

  3. Deb

    Steaming Bean’s French Roast has been a staple for several years. All other coffee seems anemic by comparison.

  4. John Pickens (verified owner)

    These beans are outstanding! Some of the most glossy I’ve ever seen. My wife and I are not fans of the “acidic” tasting coffees and this is about as far from it as you can get. Coats your mouth with rich flavor without any kind of “burnt” taste. Makes me excited to wake up.

    This is the best roast Ive had by Steaming Bean. Very dark, bold and delicious. If you like Arbuckles Ambrosia, youll love this one! Also better priced!

    I love the rich French Roast. It is so wonderfully roasted and flavorful that is has converted my husband to a dark roast drinker. I highly recommend it!

    I’ve changed a lot of things in my life over the last 20 years, lived on both US coasts. Sure, I’ve settled into some local roasters that were delicious and BY FAR, this french roast is the ultimate. My wife, who’s a chai drinker and adds a shot of espresso each day, swears by the unparralleled excellence of “the bean.” There’s no substitute.

      Thanks so much Douglas! Glad you like the coffee…could I post that on our website? (without mentioning your name of course 🙂 )

    My favorite coffee hands down!

  9. John Skinner (verified owner)

    A great french roast! Bold and roasted to the absolute limit, I brew this with a gentle hand as it’s super fresh and delightfully strong.

    I used to frequent a popular chain coffee house. These days I stay at home and make cups of TCR French Roast. Now I find the coffee from the chain store is insipid by comparison. My “dark as they can get it” French roast is my morning treat! It is bold, smooth and Smokey without any acidic aftertaste. Last summer I visited TCR in Telluride and spent a pleasant hour learning how they produce such great coffee. Thanks Mick and the Team!

      Thanks for the compliments David – much appreciated!

    We started buying from Telluride over a year ago and haven’t bought anything different since! The French Roast is my favorite but we love ALL the dark roasts! And the speed of order fulfillment and delivery, matched with outstanding customer service has made me a lifetime customer!!

    If there was ever a reason to get up early in the morning it would be for TCR French roast.

  13. Christopher Koprowski (verified owner)

    The fact that I have it sent to my home in Delaware on a regular basis should say it all.

  14. George McNeill

    Simply the best. The best coffee, the best customer service, and the best folks. Highly Recommended.

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you George. We appreciate that – without you, our customers, we are done!!

  15. Nazz De Nazario (verified owner)

    I started buying this coffee up in Steamboat Springs. When I had to move back to Denver, I started ordering it online and having it sent to me 5 pounds at a time. It’s strong and bold without being bitter.

    • Mick Hill

      Thank you Nazz! Appreciate the business and the kind words

    This is a tried and true classic French Roast that’s reliably well balanced and strong flavored.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks for the comments Janelle. The Black Magic is a Sumatra/Brazil blend just so you know..both low grown coffees and hence low ACID coffees…they work really well for the Black Magic
      Cheers1 Mick
