Organic French Roast


(29 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 Organic French Roast – a good sign that we’ve used quality beans and treated them with care.

    Love this coffee. Deep rich roast with great smell while brewing. No bitterness noted. Give it a try.

    We have been customers of the Bean for roughly 18 years. It is almost the only brand of coffee we use, and the only time we don’t is when I fail to order enough in advance and we run out. Doesn’t happen often. Their French Roast is our go-to, we sample other flavors from time to time and with no complaints, but it just doesn’t get any better than the French Roast in our opinion.

    The coffee is great, like it always is. The problem I have is that I ordered ground and received whole bean. It’s a little bit frustrating.

      Sorry Gloria..we’re happy to replace it for you..our error..:(

    The best coffee made hands down, love my morning cup of Telluride love…Excellent turnaround time and love the free shipping.

  5. Lisa Potts (verified owner)

    The French Roast is smooth and robust, not harsh or burnt tasting. I’ve always used milk but with these beans I prefer the taste of coffee and no milk or cream.

    I have lost track of how many years I have been drinking Steaming Bean French Roast coffee. I have tried other brands of french roast coffee but I have not found any other brand that compares to the Steaming Bean. It is excellent!! I love the dark roast flavor and it is the only coffee I care to drink. I always look forward to my morning cup! I was buying it at the grocery store until recently but now I am happy to order it in a larger quantity online . I just switched to the organic french roast and love it! It is fast, easy and free shipping! (tastes even fresher than in the store) Thank you all at Telluride Coffee Roasters!!

    Its the perfect French Roast. As dark as it can be, really oily, and produces a robust but smooth cup of coffeee.

  11. Lee Gates (verified owner)

    So glad to make this rich coffee that has no bitterness & it doesn’t need a flavor added to make it taste good!

  12. Chris Yelley (verified owner)

    My husband and I are from Rochester, NY. We discovered Telluride coffees on a recent ski trip to CO. I asked the grocery delivery for a local dark roast and Telluride is the one they delivered to our condo. To my dismay, I had neglected to order any milk or cream, so that first morning I was faced with a cup of scary black coffee! Creamless coffee being better than no coffee, I drank it. What a revelation! So smooth. This is how coffee should be. We immediately ordered a bunch for delivery back in Rochester. Now we start our day in the Finger Lakes region with a taste of Colorado. It’s marvelous.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Traci! Very nice of you to say..much appreciated. Which grocery store delivered you our coffee? Just curious..City Market?

    Telluride French Roast is the best on the planet. And I have drank coffee all over the world and never tasted any better! I have been ordering 5lb whole beans for many, many years. It always arrives promptly so I never run out. I even grind in advance and take with me on my world travels.
    Thank you Mick and everyone at Telluride Coffee.

    This is the perfect french roast coffee, remarkably balanced, full flavor, the best dark roast I’ve ever had. It’s quite an achievement.

  22. Lisa Potts (verified owner)

    Telluride Coffee Roasters French Roast is the best. After a trip to Telluride I was hooked and have been ordering my favorite go to for years. Thank you Mick and your team. My morning has a perfect start each day with a strong and smooth French roast that’s never bitter.

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Lisa! Glad you enjoy the coffee

    This is literally the best coffee I’ve ever tasted.

  24. Kate (verified owner)

    The only coffee I drink now. The flavor is bold and rich and just what I’m looking for in my morning cup of coffee. I also love gifting it to people. The shipment is so fast!!!

  25. Suzanne Ferrier (verified owner)

    Perfect for lattes at home!

  26. Richard Chamberlain (verified owner)

    Deep, rich and smooth. Love this coffee.

  27. Ralph Ladd (verified owner)

    Excellence coffee! Worth the price & logistics of ordering fresh coffee. Both orders produced really fresh roasted, flavorful beans that when ground correctly and brewed in our Chemex produce the best $0.50 cup of joe in the state.

  28. Arron (verified owner)

    TCR is the best! Black Magic is our every day go to coffee because nothing else compares to it. But for espresso we were looking for something with just a little more bite to it. We tried a small bag of this French roast and it makes AMAZING espresso! Now we have the 5lb bag and will always keep it stocked. If you’re like us and like your espresso drinks with that strong kick, not bitter, but strong espresso flavor, then this is the coffee for you!

    • Mick Hill

      Thanks Arron! Glad you are enjoying the French Roast!

    I save so much money bc I know that the TRide Organic French Roast I make at home is so much better….deeper/richer/so much more satisfying than anything I can find when I am out and about.
