Brimming with bombastic dark chocolate...

Bon vivants will love this seductively dark French-style coffee. 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 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. 
So, no Eurostar tickets to hand? Sit back, and allow a cup of coffee to transport you straight to that Parisian street café…

Brew the perfect cup

  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.

A note from Whittard

“I know light roasts are the big thing at the moment, but I’ve always preferred a rich, chocolatey dark roast. I’d say Monsoon Malabar and Santos & Java are my two favourites.”

- Naomi, Newcastle Store Manager


Colombia is renowned for its consistently high quality wet-processed Arabica, and the country is the world’s third largest coffee producer after Brazil and Vietnam. An astonishing range of microclimates exist across the growing regions at the foothills of the Andes and Sierra Nevada, resulting in a diverse spectrum of flavours. Depending on the region the crop will ripen at different time, ranging from heavier, chocolatey coffees to brighter varieties with jammy berry notes.

* * - - - Cafe Francais coffee by Joan Brennan on 14th November 2015

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

* * - - - Not a substitute for After Dinner by Richgym on 19th October 2015

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

* * * * - Good Breakfast cup. by Charles Thompson on 31st July 2015

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!!
