Grounds for Change French Roast 12oz

A very dark roast, the French is a classic blend for those who prefer the smoky intensity and bold character of a deeply roasted, medium-bodied cup. Our fair trade organic French Roast has a smooth, lingering finish with no bitterness.

Grounds for Change coffee is Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard, Organic Certified by the Washington State Department of Agriculture and grown in shaded conditions by small farmer cooperatives. In addition, the complete carbon footprint (from crop to cup) for our coffee has been offset with tree planting, which qualifies it as a CarbonFree Certified product by CarbonFund.org. All of our coffee is roasted to order and shipped fresh daily. Grounds for Change packages in air-tight, foil-lined bags with one-way degassing valves to preserve freshness.
