    Decaf French Roast

    A decaf dark blend coffee with spicy, complex, and smoky taste notes.

    This blend of decaffeinated Latin American coffees has all the rich, dark flavor of our regular French Roast.

    How It Tastes

    Powerful, smoky flavors and complexity without all the caffeine.

    History

    For those who enjoy the bold taste and smoky overtones of French Roast but prefer to do without the caffeine, we roast this blend of decaffeinated Latin American coffees in our inimitable style to bring out that distinctly intense flavor. Only the highest quality beans are hardy enough to stand up to both the decaffeination and the darkness of our roast — the result is a powerful, full-bodied brew that’s well-liked even by coffee drinkers who normally shy from decaf.

    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.

    Worth Noting

    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.”
