Rated 2 out of 5 by azdeb Ok but not great and a little bitter
Gevalia discontinued our favorite Mocca Java and recommended Breakfast Blend as a replacement. We found it to be a little too dark and a little bitter. I did not like it black. It was OK with milk, but so are most grocery store blends. We won't be reordering it. They first recommended ground Mocca Java, but it is both a pain to brew and bitter tasting. We have a coffee maker with a built in burr grinder that automatically measures and grinds the beans and we have to manually measure the ground coffee which is an annoying and time consuming step, and in addition, and it tastes rather bitter. I think the grind in the prepackaged ground coffee is too fine for our coffee maker. I love my coffee maker and have no desire to start measuring ground coffee into it, especially when the results are sub-par. We are trying a variety in our last auto shipment to see if we can find something we like as well as the whole bean Mocca Java. I have a couple of boxes of whole bean Mocca Java to try in between. So far, nothing comes close. Next on the list is Kenya and then Traditional Roast. We may end up cancelling after being customers since 1998.

My wife and I tried this coffee alternative to discontinued Cafe Sperl on 3 different days. We thought it was bland with no aroma and will not try it again. Gevalia has sent us a different coffee in its place.

If you're new to Gevalia, this is the ideal place to start.
I have been a Gevalia supporter since 1996, and the journey has been worth every penny.
My colleagues always ask, why do you pay so much for your coffee? The answer is quite simple. I owe this luxury to myself because it is the one time in my day I can take for myself. No four (4) hour commutes, no picking up the kids from school and taking them to either soccer practice or dance class. No radio playing God-knows-what in this "prime-time" part of the day. No "talking heads" comparing water softeners to peanut butter or the reason the United States is doomed is because of our global position on 3/4" plywood.
This time is MINE. Mine to use for something that will benefit my inner self and by doing so, prepares me for what awaits me at the office.
I can truly say that my Gevalia time is definitely worth the few pennies extra per cup.
The varieties of coffee Gevalia offers should be savored and enjoyed in your private "den", an when you have that last drop of the taste experience, then you are ready to immerse yourself in the challenges of the day.
Go ahead, when you have tried Breakfast Blend, your next shipment should include another coffee variety.
Try it...You'll Love it. I promise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by margot43 Bold,invigorating coffee.
When Cafe Oriente could no longer be autoshipped, Breakfast Blend was substituted. We all love this bold flavorful coffee with wonderful aroma. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joansy The aroma is outstanding and the actual taste is very appealing. I can't wait to drink it!
I love this coffee. I have tasted many brands of coffee over my eighty years, and I find Gevalia Breakfast Blend suits me just fine. I've been buying it for at least three years, probably longer. I intend to keep on purchasing it for as long as it's available.

Lot of friends drink store brands or even " Must have " brands or coffee from Starbucks or such. If you want the real deal, buy it here.Believe me, just a regular guy who loves a great cup of coffee. No more, No less!
