French roast coffee is a dark roast coffee that is roasted for a longer period of time than lighter roast coffees. It is typically made from high-quality Arabica beans that are roasted until they reach a dark brown or almost black color, with a shiny or oily surface.
French roast coffee is characterized by its bold and intense flavor, with a smoky and slightly bitter taste. The longer roasting process caramelizes the natural sugars in the coffee beans, resulting in a more robust flavor and aroma.
French roast coffee is often used to make espresso drinks, as its strong flavor and low acidity make it ideal for blending with milk. However, it can also be enjoyed on its own, either black or with a splash of cream.
It's important to note that French roast coffee is not a type of coffee bean, but rather a roast level. Any type of coffee bean can be roasted to a French roast level, although certain varieties may be better suited to this roast level than others.
