1853 Heritage Blend
Weak sour taste
Unfortunately the only thing strong about 1853 Heritage Coffee is it's sour taste beginning to end. There is a lacks of depth in the flavor too. I was shocked, as other Gevalia Coffee I have had was quite tasty. Sticking with Costa Rica Peaberry and Traditional Roast.

Perfect for guests
When you are not sure what to serve your guests this is the roast to use. It is a medium roast and it is delicious morning, noon and evening. We had out of town guests and they felt very honored that we would serve them Gevalia. They are family who thought we already had gone to too much trouble. Gevalia is the icing on the cake. This coffee will really make your guests feel welcome.

something exceptional to wake up to
At first I was reluctant to purchase this coffee because it was a little more expensive than the flavored coffees I was accustomed to buying. I am soooooo glad I made the investment! The aroma from brewing this coffee permeates my whole house. Now I put the coffee pot on automatic timer and wake up to the coffee as it is being made.The pot is ready for me when I get to the kitchen! The flavor rolls over my taste buds and it makes every morning sensational. I highly recommend this coffee to anyone who would truly enjoy savoring their morning cup of coffee and starting the day right.

The "mother of pearl's" coffee!
A true coffee lover's delight. You don't taste it, you experience it! Very reasonably priced and a definite must have on my auto shipping list. Thanks Gevalia a king would be truly impressed by its royal flavor.

There was nothing special about this coffee. There are too many Gevalia blends to be enjoyed, to waste your time on mediocre tasting coffee.

I'm working my way through a package of 1853 and it's truly wonderful. In fact I was hoping it came as a whole bean for my French Press. Wonderful aroma when I opened the package, fabulous mellow taste. I don't like to ruin my coffee w/ any sugar or milk. Highly recommend it.

I bought this only because reviwes were so high
I thought that with this being a bit more expensive, and with 5 great reviews that it would be great! So much for that idea. Frankly, if it were a conversation with an author, it would insipid and disappointing. It costs more than many, and actually delivers less. I compared one pot to Folgers and the Folgers, as poor as that is, has more to offer. I finally mixed them together so I could get rid of both over time..... stuff Like Folgers and this could actually cure me of coffee over time. Tooooo much money for too little real coffee flavor and satisfaction. Not bad... just not good either.
