For all you dark roast coffee fans, Blue Tribe Coffee is happy to introduce it’s French Roast blend!
Like all our blends, this coffee is composed of pure SHG (Strictly High-Grown) coffee, specially selected from the best sources in Chiapas to ensure Blue Tribe Coffee quality.
This blend delivers a smokey taste as a dark or heavy roast is at odds with using coffee for its distinct origin qualities. Dark roast coffees tend to taste more like each other – as the differences due to distinct origins are obscured by the carbon roast flavors. However, some coffees are excellent at this stage (like our French Roast blend!) and dark roasts have become popular.
More Information about Dark Roasted Coffee Beans
Sugars are heavily caramelized (read as burned) and are degraded; the woody bean structure is carbonizing and the seed continues to expand and loose mass. The body of the resulting cup will be thinner/lighter as the aromatic compounds, oils, and soluble solids are being burned out of the coffee.

This is my favorite of Blue Tribe so far, I have tried the Select, Poculum, and Espresso. It is better than Starbucks French Roast, as it lacks the bitterness. (I use a stovetop espresso maker exclusively, so my reviews of all varieties only apply when the Blue Tribe beans are prepared in this way.) This French Roast is fantastically smooth and delicious.

I absolutely love Blue Tribe’s selections but the bold flavor of the French Roast satisfies my java monkey! The beans are very dark and oily looking indicating their freshness. Beats any other French/dark roast I have tried.
