Product Description

Size: Six

Carte Noire is a great French classic, with its famous advertising slogan, Un café nommé désir (a coffee named desire).Known for the perfection of its aroma, it is made from carefully roasted Arabica beans, and is a full, well-balanced coffee that is not at all bitter. It is already ground.The French and the Italians are famous for lingering over things they enjoy, and for their appreciation of the finer things in life - from food and wine, to fashion and the arts.In everyday life, this attitude is embodied in the café culture that spills over into the boulevards and streets of both rural and urban France and Italy.Coffee has always been central to the European way of life enjoyed while sitting at a café terrace to watch the world go by, or catching up with friends to discuss life, the universe and everything, served morning, noon and night.No need to travel to Europe to enjoy the Europeans romance with great coffee you can buy Carte Noire right here.Created in 1978 by René Monnier, the pure Arabica Carte Noire blend is an example of the French love affair with coffee. Since the beginning, the name and logo have symbolized luxury and privilege its black and gold packaging evokes quality, while its intense aroma and well-balanced taste mark it out from the competition. As a result, Carte Noire is now the undisputed number-one coffee choice throughout France.Produced using only the finest Arabica beans, it is French savoir-faire with its sophisticated flavour, velvety taste and seductive arôme absolu.If you value all the complexity one would expect from a French blend, try Carte Noire Ground Coffee. Its aromas are rich and smoky, with a recently roasted brightness. The flavors are positively clamoring for attention leafy notes, toasty tones, with a lovely sweetness on mid-palate.And there's just the right level of bitterness, refreshing without being overpowering.This is an after-dinner coffee par excellence, assembled with typically French savoir-faire.

Not knowing this was a Kraft Foods brand, we bought this in Paris and brought it home to the US. It is one of the best whole bean coffees we have ever had. I just wish our local stores sold it.

Not too bitter, with a very complete taste. I like more flavorful, and he likes bitter - we both loved this coffee. Highly recommended.

I haven't ordered this from Amazon, but can certainly vouch that this coffee is without a doubt the best! It is a pity that it should be so pricey online while you can get a three pack in a regular supermarket in France for less that 10 euros. Quite shameful, really...

Came across this coffee in a hotel in Kazakhstan during a business visit. Really enjoyed it ,but it is not available in Australia to the consumer. Found it on Amazon, and now have it every morning.If you like coffee with real "guts" and a bit of flavour but none of that bitterness, this is the one.

We have tried many coffees and a number of home coffee makers but have been unable to brew anything to match the quality of the coffees we enjoy in our favorite restaurants. But this morning we tried the Carte Noire given us as a Christmas gift. What a delightful surprise. It has that "blackness" that we associate with good coffee but none of the bitterness. It is unquestionably the best coffee we have ever made at home. And with a small addition of Irish Creme syrup (another Christmas present), it was simply quite wonderful.

I found Carte Noire in France in 1993 and started bringing packages back with me three or four times each year. What captured my attention so firmly? What makes this coffee so great?

It is unusual simply because: (1) It is 100% Arabica; (2) It is 100% Colombian. (3) It is roasted by the French. There is only one other coffee with this particular rare pedigree, and it is good, but not quite as good as Carte Noire. Amazon's ad terminology calls this an after dinner coffee. I disagree with them. We have always used it exclusively in the morning, as do the Europeans who value its rich taste.

This coffee is bold but not overpowering. It avoids giving you a thin or a bitter coffee taste. One package of 250 grams (very finely ground) will last for exactly five days when brewed in a 12-cup pot. My coffee philosophy is this: If you're going to drink coffee, buy and drink the best one you can find anywhere. This is it. I wouldn't lie about something this important.

My wife and I found this coffee in France during a "coffee buying spree". We bought a little of everything and enjoyed them through out the year. One of the more inexpensive brands (in France) is Carte Noire. It might be common coffee in France, but to us it was the absolute best. We order several each year. I'm the hit with my fellow adults when I bring it to a Boy Scout camp out. My fellow adults even pout when I run out.

This is some great stuff and the seller does a nice job in shipping it. Be aware that sometimes it is out of stock, so you might join us and order a few and stock it up in the freezer.

During the winter of 2008 I lived in Paris, surviving on very little money. Carte Noire was the cheapest coffee in the Monoprix supermarket, costing perhaps 2 euro. That stuff rocked--it shames every American brand. Ironic that here it's pretty pricy.
