Our French Roast has been a customer favorite for nearly twenty years, and this traditional, dark-roasted coffee has remained steady and consistent through out that time. It is remarkably clean, with the trademark smokiness that French coffee is known and loved for.
Our coffee is all roasted at our own Roaster to ensure premium freshness. We use an artisan roasting technique that mixes traditional roasting methods with modern technology. You can taste this in every cup you brew at home.
Our French Roast Coffee is also sourced as part of our Farm Friendly Direct program. The Human Bean does not just purchase and roast exceptional coffee but we also give back to the communities that our coffee is grown within. This allows us to acquire amazing Arabica coffees while simultaneously improving the quality of life for the coffee farmers and their entire communities.
We recently did a stewardship project in the region of Colombia that grows this coffee for us. Colombia farm visits were made by a group of Human Bean team members in early November of 2018. They were joined by Portland Global Initiatives. Together The Human Bean and PGI have partnered on a clean water and sanitation project that is currently ongoing in the Caldas region of Colombia. You can read more about that on this blog post on the Colombia Project. They were able to visit many of the farms that provide us with our Farm Friendly Direct coffee from Colombia. And they also got to meet many of the farmers and their families. One highlight of the trip was presenting the farmers with checks for the dividends. They were able to earn these by selling the coffee directly to us and forgoing the use and cost of a middle man.
