Brimming with bombastic dark chocolate...

The French are famous for their high-roasted, hard-hitting blends, brimming with bombastic dark chocolate – we’ve balanced those heavy flavours with a blend of our very own, exclusive to Whittard.
The perfect balance
The rich, silky tones of coffee beans from Colombia are combined with the sweet and mellow beans of Brazil, for a blend which is full-bodied and richly aromatic without being overpowering. We recently tweaked the roast on these beans, giving them a lighter roast for an even greater complexity of flavour…

Brew the perfect cup

  Cafe Francais is a versatile coffee, but to really highlight its aromatic complexity and powerful flavours we recommend using a stovetop, cafetière or AeroPress. When making coffee always use freshly drawn and boiled water – wait a few seconds for the water to cool so you don’t scald the grinds. Cardinal rule? Never re-heat brewed coffee! Freshness is everything.

My friend bought me a selection of Whittard coffees for my birthday early this year. This was by far my favourite. When I ordered this recently however, it’s simply not at nice. It is bitter whereas before it was strong, chocolatey and very smooth. Please bring back the previous blend

Not a patch on After Dinner. Please bring back After Dinner or I'll have to take my custom elsewhere.

Weak, lacking in body, and a last resort only, I'm afraid. I have to look elsewhere.

This is not super strong but a pleasant breakfast coffee, unless you prefer a real blast of strength. It has a satisfying, mellow flavour that starts the day perfectly.

The coffee beans should return to the more mellow flavour that I am used to and prefer, it should return to roast 4.

* - - - - Possibly the worst coffee I've tasted by VZ on 19th June 2014

I had high expectations for this coffee. Unfortunately, I found it severely lacking in taste and body. Most definitely will not be buying again.

* * * * * Complete agreement. by Stewart Scott on 26th September 2013

Having tried nearly all their coffee types, and a few others too, this tastes like the coffee I drank at university in California. It's my 'perfect roast', there isn't a finer. I'll be buying this for many years to come!!

In the words of Frank Sinatra, ‘They’ve Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Brazil’, and the country is the world’s dominant coffee supplier, producing over 3000kg of Arabica every year. Brazilian coffee are often heavy bodied and sweet, with deep chocolate and roasted nut flavours. They make the ideal base for a blend, but you’ll also find certain single estate coffees with a crisp acidity and fruity notes.

A note from Whittard

“I love a lighter roast, particularly fruitier African coffees. At the moment I’ve been starting the day with a fresh, strong cup of Kenya Peaberry – it’s deliciously sweet, like cherry jam.”
