The sweet, savory smokiness in this coffee is the result of patient roasting... coaxing our high-grown American beans to fully develop their natural caramel sweetness and velvet body. The result is a cup that's something like that little black dress that's stunning with just about everything... and more so all by itself.
Elegant, refined and alluring.
Intense, simple aroma: sweet scorched wood, hint of dark chocolate. More complex in the cup: nut and dark chocolate dominate, with a distinct herb note, somewhere between rosemary and peppermint. Smooth, sweet finish, only slightly heavy in the long. – Kenneth Davids, CoffeeReview.com, September 2008
A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.
That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.

Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 12oz. GRND French Roast:
My favorite has always been Black Tiger from Coffee People. Since I was unable to get a bag of Black Tiger I opted for the French Roast from Green Mountain.OMG!!! Best French Roast I have ever had! I made my first cup of Green Mountain French Roast using a stainless steel drip filter so I can enjoy every bit of the coffee without loosing any of the flavor. I highly recommend this coffee!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The best French Roast we've ever tasted!
from Bel Air, MD
My husband & I love this coffee! I have tried other french roasts, but they are always bitter. This one is soooo good and not bitter. I usually use hazelnut creamer, but with this coffee I prefer just plain half and half. It's flavor is so good I don't want it mixed with any flavored creamer. I highly recommend this coffee to anyone who enjoys a strong, full-bodied cup of coffee. I hope they continue to sell this in whole bean, as we prefer to grind our own coffee right before brewing. I saw that they were changing it to ground only, so hopefully that changes.
Excellent way to start the day

If you like a deep rich cup of coffee this is the one for you. I drink coffee without cream or sugar and sometimes dark roasts are bitter. This one is perfect.

No matter how you brew it, this French Roast is exquisite every time. It is roasted to perfection and is great anytime of day.I highly recommend brewing it in a French Press, the crema from these beans is smooth and creamy.
About Me Simple Tastes
You will know it's an intense coffee from the moment you see the gorgeous color of the beans/grounds. The smell is heavenly and tastes even better. It's a really dark, smoky coffee that should not be tainted with flavored creamers and the like. Please enjoy at least one cup on its own to truly enjoy its magic. Then dress it up as you will.
The Best French Roast
About Me Foodie
I purchased this product when trying some different varieties (from Green Mountain and others) and I have yet to try any other coffee in my life that matched this. I ground the beans myself and brewed in a French press, and with a little cream, this coffee is fantastic. I have been trying other French Roasts (from that big West Coast mail-order roaster ;-), and my local micro-roasters) and I have yet to match Green Mountain's FR. Even before opening the bag, just smelling the exhaust from the one-way valve, you know this is going to be amazing. Opening the bag reveals the dark, oily, beautifully roasted beans. It's the most amazing thing I have ever drunk. It's dark, smoky, and strong. At the same time, with a little cream, it's sweet and caramelly; NEVER bitter. I couldn't imagine anything better for those who like strong, deep, dark roasts. I will be ordering four bags of this a month from now on--it's hard to start the day without it.
One of the best beans!
