French Roast (K-Cup) by Van Houtte Cafe Review |
  • Van Houtte Cafe

    Montreal, Canada
  • French Roast (K-Cup)

Roast: Dark Review Date: January 2004
Origin: Not disclosed Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet, low-key, expansive aroma. In the cup rich and cleanly roasty, with an agreeable bittersweet balance complicated by fresh leather, chocolate and a shimmer of sweet grapefruit. The grapefruit persists in the rich but astringent finish.

Notes: K-Cups are designed for the Keurig single-serve brewer. Van Houtte ("A Taste of Europe in Your Cup") is a large Canadian coffee roaster and office coffee service provider with its roots in European small-batch roasting. Visit for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy complex, bittersweet dark roasts without burned tones.


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.
