The French roasting technique causes the coffee beans to crack twice, releasing the oils contained inside each bean. This is precisely what makes French roasts unique, contrary to most other roasting techniques that make the beans crack only once.
This roast is charred, intense and bold with a somewhat smoky undertone. It is light and gives you a watery mouthfeel. It is sweet, which contrasts as well as complements its bold nature.
Compared to its light roasted counterparts, it is less acidic.
