French roast is a method of roasting coffee beans, which can then be ground up and used in coffee or espresso drinks. To roast beans using the French roast method, the beans are roasted at temperatures between 370 and 540 degrees Fahrenheit (188 to 282 Celsius) for 11 to 13 minutes. While the beans are roasting, you will hear a popping sound, or "crack." After the first crack, the beans would be characterized as Cinnamon or City roast, with a light, mild flavor. If you leave the beans in the roaster until they crack again, the resulting beans will be French roast beans.
