- Features & Benefits
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. 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."

Caffeine as a function of agricultural variation;
Unlike manufactured products, such as soft drinks and some pharmaceutical that introduce caffeine into products as a measured ingredient, caffeine is a naturally occurring component in agricultural crops such as coffee, tea and cocoa. Agricultural products do not have a single fixed chemical composition instead they are subject to variance due to factors inherent in the agricultural practice. For this reason approximate levels of caffeine for each product have been established within the respective industries. Approximate levels are based on repeated testing and average results.
Caffeine as a function of coffee type;
There are two species of coffee grown commercially, Robusta and Arabica. Each of the species has a unique of range of levels of caffeine content, the exact level of which is dependent on several factors including the variety of the plant, the growing climate and the stage of maturation when the coffee is harvested. In general Robusta has approximately twice the natural caffeine content as Arabica.
Caffeine as a result of roast profile;
There is minimal caffeine loss as a result of the roasting process. The difference in caffeine content, when compared bean to bean, in a light roasted coffee and the same coffee dark roasted is negligible. During the roasting process, coffee beans simultaneously expand in size while losing weight as water and other volatiles are driven off. As a result, coffee loses density; dark roast coffee is less dense than light roast coffee. Varying densities in coffee help address the belief that dark roast coffee has more caffeine than light roast coffee.
Caffeine as a result of the brewing process;
The caffeine content of the final beverage is determined by the amount of caffeine contained in the roasted coffee and the rate of extraction that occurs during the brewing process. The ideal coffee brewing process will control the parameters which influence extraction; the amount of coffee used per water, the grind of the coffee being used, the water temperature and the length of time the coffee and water will remain in contact.
