French Roast

Teeccino French RoastFrench Roast (Maya Caffe) 100% Certified Organic. Dark Roast.

Intense deep coffee notes from roasted ramon seeds and chicory roots create a robust, focused body without any sweetness.



Caroline MacDougall thumbCaroline says:

“It wasn’t until I discovered ramon seeds from Central American rainforests that the dream of a dark roasted, unsweetened herbal coffee with enough body to carry coffee-like depth and intensity came into focus. The Maya drank a brewed beverage of roasted ramon seeds for all kinds of health reasons. Please understand that this was prior to the coffee tree making its way across the Atlantic via Spanish vessels.

“If you like your coffee dark roasted without any competing flavour notes or sweetness, French Roast is for you. In a taste test of Teeccino’s regular flavours, French Roast, Java and Dandelion Dark Roast, those coffee drinkers who like pure coffee flavour preferred dark roasted French Roast or, if they need to be certified gluten-free, Dandelion Dark Roast. Those who want a medium roast with just a bit of sweetness preferred Java.”

Testimonials/customer feedback:

French Roast!

By: DM from Cleve, Oh on May 26, 2010

“I love the French Roast flavour! At first, I mixed in a little regular coffee. I now drink just the herbal coffee every morning. It’s great that it brews like coffee but is so much healthier!”


Teeccino ROCKS!

By: Karen Beth from Corinth, Mississippi on July 23, 2010

“I always brew half coffee and half Teeccino. The French Roast really gives it a bold, earthy flavour and I love it. I simply can’t drink regular coffee anymore; it is not nearly as good.”


Most similar coffee taste

By: C.A. from Milwaukee, WI on April 28, 2011

“I’ve tried 13 different herbal coffee flavours. After drinking coffee and espresso for the past 20 years and then having to give it up – like a long-time friend – I can say without a doubt that the Maya Caffe French Roast is the closest thing to real coffee. Well, without the nasty side effects. This will be my number one Teeccino pick going forward. Thank you for making these real coffee flavours for us diehards.”


Outstanding Taste

By: Sally M. from Huntington Beach on July 17, 2011

“I will never go back to regular coffee, after I tasted Teeccino’s French Roast. It’s rich and bold keeps me coming back for more. If I run out, I won’t drink anything else till I have Teeccino Herbal coffee.”


Great herbal coffee.

By: Lynda from Harlingen, Texas on October 15, 2011

“This is a great herbal coffee. I picked it up at the health food store, in a hurry and thought it was coffee. I started drinking it and loved it, and now that I know it is a herbal coffee it is that much better. Thank you Teeccino!”
