A lot of roasters today still re-roast coffee that is nearing the end of its shelf life to avoid the loss.
    French wasn't because Europeans liked darker coffee so much as it was Americans trying to recoup losses. The coffee they were running through a second time was French.

    So just like French fries, French roast has nothing to do with France!
    Very interesting, no wonder my lungs were shutting down from a closed bag, placed in side a cabinet and from 15 feet away!!
