  • Tully's Coffee

    Seattle, Washington
  • French Roast

Roast: Very-Dark Review Date: January 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: $9.49/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Charred wood with a backgrounded dark chocolate sweetness dominates in aroma. The dark chocolate character intensifies in the cup, complicated by a hint of orangy fruit. Lean but smooth mouthfeel; sweetly smoky in the finish.

Notes: French roast is the common American term for ultimately dark-roasted coffees like this one. Tully's is a large quality-oriented specialty roasting company and cafe chain based in Seattle. Visit or call 800-968-8559 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: An ultra-dark roast that preserves some pleasing chocolate character amid the smoky embers. Low in acidity, both perceived and measured.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
