Wagon Wheel French Roast

Unapologetically dark and complex

Deep caramel, bittersweet chocolate



This is your classic French roast — roasted dark, almost to the point that makes our roasters nervous. But like all Black Oak coffees, we bring out the quality of the bean itself to showcase the bold yet smooth combination of browned sugars and bitter chocolate in a full-bodied, smoky cup. This one’s a favorite of many Black Oak customers when paired with cream and a little sugar.

Brewing Recommendation:
We brew our French roast as drip coffee using a ratio of 16:1 (by weight) of medium/fine ground coffee. See our drip brewing in action.

Size: 12oz

Roast level: Dark (for real!)

Simply the best.

Black Oak does not make a bad roast. That is simple truth. I stand behind this statement by having Black Oak send my coffee to Pittsburgh. There are great roasters in Pittsburgh, but none as good as Ukiah's finest!

The best coffee ever!

Full bodied and bold

Wagon Wheel French roast is full bodied and bold without any bitterness or “burnt” flavor that I sometimes detect in a French roast. Another perfect cup of coffee from Black Oak Coffee Roasters.

Dark roasts needed

Excellent brew but how about some new dark roast coffees/blends? The featured coffees each month are always light or medium.

Sabrina Foss
Great, bold but mellow notes!

While I am a foodie an equal lover of awesome coffee I have relied on the write ups/description of all Black Oak coffee! What a great business model, double bonus a local one. I'm also enjoying my monthly subscription, do it if you can!

Dark Roast, Perfect Gift

I sent this to a dear coworker for her birthday and she loves it! She's been drinking it every day since then and described it as a high-quality taste that's up there with the best of French Roasts. Will send her some again!

Excellent for espresso!

Too dark for my taste

Personally, I did not enjoy this roast. I felt it was too dark and burnt-tasting. I did also purchase the Vineyard French Roast which I like a lot more—I recommend that one. I usually like French roasts, so it's not that I don't like any dark coffee. Just my thoughts.
