Topping the best!
It was an excellent coffee, grain quality and degree of roast paired to provide wonderful woody, berry, light nutty and spiced notes that danced in perfect harmony.
My favorite among favorites, at a price that it couldn't be beaten. I'm so sorry that it was taken out of the market.

My husband and I have ordered Cafe Sperl for years (I've lost count how many years). While we never ordered the regular roast, we loved the Cafe Sperl decaf!! It is/was simply the best decaf of any coffee we've ever had!! Now what to do? I've tried numerous varieties of coffee, both regular and decaf, from Gevalia but Sperl is what kept me as a loyal customer. I love Gevalia's green tea too but am not sure I'll be keeping my account open if Sperl is no longer available. Boo, hoo….

BEST coffee -- why discontinue?
I have been buying Cafe Sperl I think since it was new (close to 20 years). I also buy Le Procope, but the Sperl is my favorite -- smooth and well-balanced. I can't even begin to imagine why Gevalia is discontinuing this coffee! I found out when they sent me Breakfast Blend instead. I have no idea why they would have sent Breakfast blend, b/c it is not REMOTELY like the Sperl -- it is awful, honestly (almost bitter and too weak). PLEASE bring back the Europen coffee house coffees, and especially the Sperl. Until then, I am going to have to cancel my subscription, b/c I can buy far better coffee than the breakfast blend elsewhere.

Best of Coffeehouse offerings
This coffee is smooth and not bitter, and delicious. So sorry to see it discontinued. It's the best of the Euro coffeehouse offerings.

This is also more of a coffee to drink after dinner.

No longer a customer
Gevalia has dropped the café sperl coffee and substituted an inferior product not worth the money. Anyone who has walked through Vienna and had the café sperl coffee would be offended by the cheap flavor and taste profile of the Breakfast blend. After nearly 30 years of business with gevalia I am saying good bye.

This is an excellent coffee
This coffee in the light of the morning,
as the mug warms your hands....
it is the start of a happy day.....
This coffee in the rich quiet of the night,
as the taste rolls full and bright in your mouth....
is the start of a beautiful night.

My Favorite of all the Gevalia offerings
Add me to the list of lovers of this coffee!
Gevalia offered the opportunity to sample a wide range of coffees, but I always gravitated back to Sperl.
The Coffeehouse Auto Delivery package was where I first tasted this marvel and would then measure all the other varieties using Sperl as a benchmark. It stood alone!
There's not much reason to continue auto delivery without a box of Sperl.
