This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Tony's Coffee will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
The Classic French was blended and roasted for you by Tony's Coffee. Classic French is Tony's darkest, heartiest blend. While they’re always refining their roast profiles, they like to think of this coffee as an homage to the roasting style of 1971 - the year of Tony's was founded. We find this blend to be a particularly tasty dark roast, with rich notes of molasses, hickory and smoke.
I love this coffee. It has a rich caramel taste with some chocolate notes. It is smooth and non-acidic. The smokiness is minimal. I would definitely buy this.

Did not care for this batch. Has a bitter burnt after taste.
Nice flavor; a bit milder than I'd generally prefer. Seemed fairly typical of French roasts. Not bitter, but terribly memorable.
This has been my favorite by far!! LOVED IT!
One of our favorite coffees yet. More like this one please.
caramel, rich sounded like what I want but this one was just so so
Like the last one, I loved the bag! Flavor OK if finely ground for pour-over or drip. Made a decent espresso, but not very robust. Guess I'm still spoiled by my original Double Dark!
This coffee had a sweet taste and easy to drink black. In fact I preferred it black.
Reasonable...could be a little stronger
The notes of smoky and caramel are on the money -- though perhaps my brewing method (pour-over) didn't draw out the richness, or I just don't know how to look for that aspect.
This was a good coffee, but not as good as the Double Dark from Shipment #1 -- not dark enough, that is -- when it comes to a powerful morning brew. I'd characterize this one as ideal for a "second cup," for a dark-roast lover (like me).
Is there such a thing as a strong light roast, just out of curiosity? Since I tend to buy only dark for myself, I'm just wondering if I should use this gift opportunity with Misto to try something I wouldn't ordinarily select? Regardless, I'm curious to see what you select when it comes to the next batch.
Well balanced, not bitter, great fragrance and taste. One of my favorites so far.
best coffee I've ever had
The tastiest so far
Ghislain and Catherine
Too much smoke. So much so that I could not really taste anything else.
little too rich for me... Like something like the Italian Blend better.
We loved this coffee!
OK , smokey, but difficult to say rich and cant taste caramel.
Might be my favorite coffee I've ever brewed at home.
Very good. So good that experimentation should be around the edges.
I thought this was too dark. Hard to pick out any flavor notes. Was not one of my favorites.
This coffee was also awesome especially for my soy lattes! Although I loved it I did like the first one a little more. This one I felt was quite a bit more smoky than the first and I think that’s a note that I don’t desire as much. It wasn’t overwhelming, but compared to the first coffee I liked it less.
Great cup. Favorite so far!
Would prefer less oily. This coffee works if if brewed mild
Not happy with two shipments so far.
Does not have any flavor of coffee.
coffe was very strong with no flavor. please cahnge to medium roast.
Can I exchange 2 nd shipment not yet open (working on the foirst shipment now) and replace with a different coffee?
Kara + Richie
My favorite so far! Great coffee, rich and bold, and I love that the company put so much pride into the actual bag the coffee came in! So much fun!
I do like It but I really liked the previous one a lot. First one is still my favorite out of the two.
Smoky overtakes the caramel.
I liked this roast very much. Next time, I think I would like something just a bit bolder. Thank you.
Bitter after taste otherwise it was pretty good. I tried a larger grind but the taste seemed watered down.
Very good, I like how dark and strong it is. Makes a good espresso. With aero press it works better with a bit of cream and a tiny dash of turbinado sugar. Excellent in a latte or cortado.
Robust flavor with chocolate undertones. Great smell. Beans are fairly oily, makes great drip coffee, have not yet tried espresso.
its not terrible but the flavor is just okay. there is indeed notes of molasses and syrup, but it is too dark for me.
Pretty good. A little fruity. Notes of fig.
Really enjoyed this - vibrant coffee
These beans have been really tasty and rich and I've enjoyed the coffee a lot. They also seem to have more oil than the Verve which I like, not sure what that means! I do slightly prefer the Verve that was my first delivery, not sure exactly why, I guess just the overall flavor. It's clear that I prefer the dark French roasts so you've nailed that!
However, I'd like to try something totally different for my next delivery-still a dark and rich roast but perhaps a bit different on the flavor profile. I'm curious what you might come up with! Thanks Seth!
Very nice brew; stronger than the last which was nice. Still would like a more bold coffee. I would buy again. Thanks
Amazing bold flavor and smokiness probably the best coffee bean I’ve ever had also loved the oils
We love the this one because the aroma is wonderful (actually they all are). The body was just right. It was balanced and it was clean.
Alysia and Rob
Okay. Not my favorite thus far
The flavor is not as good as the first dark roast
I love the strong flavor of this coffee.
Good, but not as bold or flavorful as the first selection and the after taste was not as enjoyable. Still, a good solid cup to get the day started.
Jan and Keith
Better than the first , just not strong enough
good. I enjoy a dark roast and felt like there was not as much depth of flavor as I would have liked.
This coffee tastes ok, it's just very very thin. Ended up steeping it for much longer than normal and also use quite a bit more beans to get to a flavor that I enjoyed. Comparing to what I had left of my previous blend really showed, to me, how little I preferred this one.
Loved this coffee. I could taste the hints of caramel right away, along with the flavorful aroma. Great pick for my second selection.
Good bit not great, makes me appreciate light roasts and realize they may be my favorite
Tasted great, very easy to drink, no acidity.
Great coffee, definitely one to drink each morning.
Excellent flavor, smooth even without creamer. Could be richer in flavor maybe.
This one wasn't bad at all, it was just okay - middle of the line average. Wouldn't mind others similar at all but definitely enjoyed the previous one significantly more.
Vahan and Eleeza
I enjoyed the smokier flavor of this coffee, as well as the rich aroma it gave off.
It was really good but didn’t seem as dark tasting as I expected.
I liked it; Deb thought it was a bit acidic.
Liked the aroma, as well as the smoky, earthy flavor.
I like the dilannos better. This one is good, but not as strong as the first one.
Jerry & Jacquie
Very aromatic with a dark delicious and smooth taste
Much better than first coffee. Still not a "rich" flovor for me, but enjoyable for sure.
Good, but a bit strong and smoky.
We are huge fans of dark roast, so we were very pleased when we brewed this for the first time. I like the smoky flavor!
The aroma was fantastic, and it filled up the entire house which was great. Unfortunately, it was lost when brewed along with the flavor.
Good flavor. Very smooth. Not as smoky as the Dillanos Classic (my first coffee), which I prefer the less smoky. Just picking up a hint of the caramel (could be my grind and brewing). Combining the chocolate of the Dillanos, with the less smoky I feel of the Tony’s Classic French, in a bold coffee would be great.
Too rich for my taste
Perfect coffee for me. Love it.
The flavor was mild and indistinct. Prefer darker roasts.
Nice smoky flavor. Love to see oily beans!
Brian loved it
Great flavor. Easy crowd pleaser
Steve & Barbara
a tad on the bitter side
I really enjoyed this one! It was flavorful yet not bitter. I think I like coffees that are on the "sweeter" side.
I found this more subtle than the Dillanos blend, and had to use more coffee to get the real sense of it. I definitely got the smokey aspect of this blend. I will have to try it as an expresso for my next taste.
Curtis and Betty
pretty tasty though not as robust as other french roasts I have had.
I liked this coffee better than the Dillanos. I liked that it was dark and smooth, no bitterness at all.
Meh just about sums it up. Nothing crazy here. I try each of my coffees in both French Press as well as my drip coffee maker (Bunn). I had high hopes for this one with the description of being "sweet" but it just didnt deliver. However, I love the oily richness of my first coffee more as I drink it. DDR is the name of it, it is more along the profile I enjoy,
Nice richness and dark roast. A little acid and not the heavy roast or boldness that I think of in a dark roast.
Dark, strong, roasty. Delicious.
"thick, deep, intense, smooth, sweet, luxurious"...hows that for adjectives!....wonderful coffee...definitely prefer the dark roasts with caramel-like notes/flavors....really like organics too, but I see the list is limited on those....would like to try one or two organic dark roasts with sweet ,caramel notes if you think there is a fit, but I don't want to miss the other 'great" coffees either...so you decide ....thanks for "chatting" with me Samantha, and have a blessed day! p.s. Liked this one a little better than the first coffee....but both 5 star for sure....
Pretty good. Not as full bodied as Cameron's Intense French
Excellent! As described, classic flavor; rich and smoky.
Nice rich flavor, clean finish. I feel it's a bit lacking in aroma (when brewed) but really good coffee.
Nathan and Robyn
Solid roast; a little oily. Prefer slightly milder.
Good medium roast. Lots of flavor
Delicious - dark, robust. Excellent cup of coffee.
I couldn't really taste the caramel and is nowhere near as bold or rich as the Double Dark Blend. It is very different from the previous coffee but its understood that it will be a lot lighter in all aspect. Shall try for a few more days before updating notes to get a better taste for it.
Excellent, no bitterness, make in full auto espresso machine: academia gaggia, beans are highly aromatic and quite oily, Had to rake beans in hopper to keep flow going. good caffeine kick - drink 4 shots at a time to get going. Roast level is good, rich without that burnt flavor some dark roasts have. I must have dead taste buds, no carmel or smoke flavors to me , I just taste coffee??? but I like it.
Sorry, I have not received this one yet
Don't like French
I really like this - love the chocolate flavor st the end of each sip. That sounds homey but true. I didn’t think I’d like it but I really do- would order more for sure
Love the rich taste
Love it! Great Flavor!
Similar to the first one. Strong and full bodied. We enjoyed the richness amd coean finish
It's french roast. Nothing special. Not my favorite roast in general. Made good cold brew for iron limes though.
Love this blend. It's dark, but smooth. This is my favorite coffee so far!
Too dark for me
Probably one of the darkest coffees I've had up to this point. Has a very rich deep taste to it which - I feel is a perfect morning coffee with a pistachio biscotti
Just a really good blend. You guys are on a roll! Keep the good coffee coming! Looking forward to more dark roasts for the winter!
this was good, but we liked the first one better. We definitely prefer the nuttier flavors.
Delicious. And not too overpowering
I really like the way this blend tastes. It is strong but not overpowering. Has a great bold flavor.
Nice full flavor
Oh yeah, now this is what I am talking about. This blend goes well with my professorial glasses, hipster beard,and bike messenger bag. JK
I actually really liked this blend. The taste is amazing
I liked this more than the first coffee, but still too smokey. The flavors are a little too dark and heavy.
This coffee has a smooth yet bold flavor that I enjoy in the morning!
Love the smokiness of this. Perfect way to start the day.
Bold and rich, not much complexity, but the smoky flavor is definitely there.
Balanced and smooth. Not as strong as I was hoping it would be but had a nice flavor.
Dark, smooth, rich, caramel. Worked a treat in the espresso machine. An enjoyable cup.
I enjoy this one too, it's a little richer than the Dillanos bean. I wouldn't mind trying something a little lighter
I almost exclusively drink medium/dark to dark roast and I brewed this with various ratios in my French press, but each time I drank this it tastes burnt. I was kind of happy when I finished it and the next one was delivered.
This coffee is SO GOOD. And it grinds evenly in my cheap coffee grinder too, which is another plus.
Lets try something a little less smoky and maybe a little lighter roast, not quite so darK?
Robust and strong punch for espresso or espresso-based drinks - probably the best bet for this particular roast vs. pourover, FP, etc.
Definitely my favorite so far. Strong and punchy, just what you need when waking up for your first cup.
Good for a dark roast, though I am not a fan of dark roasts.
Another French roast, and this one felt like a more typical French roast with that harshness or almost tannic taste.
It's a decent coffee, but not one that is particularly memorable for us. It has a smooth and mild flavor hitting the notes as described in the description. However, it doesn't have a strong aroma, which mutes the overall tasting experience. I was surprised not to be a fan of this one!
Tasty dark roast, with rich notes of molasses, hickory and smoke
good strong coffee but a bit overpowering
An excellent roast! Especially smooth with substance! I would highly recommend it!
In the end, this process has helped me appreciate what I do like, a dark as my soul french roast ground as fine as my grinder will go and steeped too long. This roast was not bad, but it left me wanting for a cup of coffee that would probably put most people off. For a French Roast, this was a disappointment.
Very good dark roast.
Really a 4 1/2 stars. It was very good but as I said in my previous note, I preferred the Dillano's French, so I reserved the 5stars for that one.
Smooth and the caramel flavor is great! Very rich dark coffee!
This blend makes *really* coffee or expresso. One of my favorites but just *barely* behind the Equator organic blend.
One of if not my favorite coffees from mistobox.
I loooved this one!
At first I thought this was lacking flavor but then I amped up the dosage and it kicked in nicely. Prefer this to the Dillanos, which I found ok, very similar to the Illy dark roast I keep for emergencies. I might prefer the color of the beans a bit lighter and the 'darkness' a little lighter, but don't want to lose any flavor.
Bunny & Bunny
Thank you for the coffee! It wasn't bad and we enjoyed it, and I liked the roast color and smell, but I preferred the flavor of of first coffee with Mistobox, the "Dillanos Coffee Roasters - Metro French Roast Blend." Tony's coffee was a little more sour to me, less smooth and bold as the Dillanos blend. Not too bad though! We definitely drank it all :)
Looks and smells great, but coffee was a bit weak. Had to increase the amount of coffee by 20% to fill it out.
Not a big fan of the molasses flavor. Prefer a bolder brew.
This coffee was far too sour for me. Still drinkable, but not something that I would like to receive again. I prefer a smooth, but strong flavor. Perhaps I got a bad batch, but this one made me cringe after each sip, rather than the preferred, "ah, that's good coffee".
UPDATE: I tried brewing this coffee with my regular drip machine (rather than the French Press), and it turned out much better. I still wouldn't get it again, but it's quite amazing how different brews can be between batches.
This coffee smelled amazing when I ground it, but the flavor was just ok. It didn't really stand out as a great cup of coffee
A little bit darker than I care for but good flavors.
Great flavors; thoroughly enjoyed.
Good, but I prefer the Dillano's. I tried varying the grind on this but always had to use more than for any other coffee to get anything but weak "tea water." Flavor was good and completely without bitterness.
The coffee had good flavor but it was too watery or too light no matter how we brewed it. No a fan.
Molasses, hickory and smoke are right. Clean finish. But, not as strong as I would have expected.
ptetty good, easy to drink, not the most robust flavor but good overall
I can definitely tell the sweetness of this roast. It tastes a little weaker than my preference but I think that's because I became accustomed to drinking something a little bit bolder.
I needed to use a little more coffee than I normally would have to get the strength and consistency that I wanted. Overall it is great and makes the house smell wonderful while brewing.
