The best of the Gevalia line, bar none
This is by far the best coffee in the whole Gevalia line; for that matter, it is in the top three coffees I have ever had anywhere! I was an exchange student in Vienna for my junior year of college. The real Cafe Sperl (yes--it does exist!) was between the little pension where I lived and my classroom building. I was a "regular" at that Cafe (as well as Cafe Museum right down the street!). I spent hours with coffee at Cafe Sperl and the Int'l Herald Tribune newspaper during that year. You can imagine my delight when Gevalia introduced this coffee some years back. It has an aroma like no other, excellent mouthfeel, and a full,rich flavor without a hint of bitterness. It is a tragedy that the bean counters from Kraft, Gevalia's corporate parent, who are clearly not coffee mavens, are now apparently exerting excessive control and are working to remove this ambrosia from the line-up in favor of more pedestrian and larger selling varieties. In short, try this one before it is gone!

What a GREAT coffe! What a shame it was cancelled!!
This is one of my favorite coffees. I've been ordering it for years and am so disappointed that they cancelled it without notification. I've been a customer for over 15 years and am cancelling my account. How disappointing.

Why Get Rid Of the Best Coffee
This is or should I say was the best coffee offered from Gevalia. I just came back to the company for this specific coffee and noticed it was unavailable. Hoping this was for a short time I opened up auto ship and began ordering again and now I see it has been discontinued. Not a wise choice! Not sure what I am going to do, I also get coffee shipped to my home from another company monthly as well. What is the reason for getting rid of this blend?

My all time favorite!
I am so sorry Café Sperl is discontinued! I never get tired of this coffee. It was a wonderfully aromatic morning friend for years and just as good for an afternoon inspiration, with or without cream and sugar. Please bring it back.

best coffee ever
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can replace this excellent coffee with? I have had it on auto delivery forever. HELP I will probably end up canceling my membership.

THEY HAVE DISCONTINUED MY FAVORITE COFFEE - WHY?!!!
The review is a one-star due to Gevalia discontiuing this FIVE STAR coffee. i have had a membership with Gevalia for many many years ordering this coffee regularly through all that time. I am heartbroken that they've discontinued this and have had to cancel my membership because of it. Please bring it back!

This is how coffee should taste
I was recently informed that the ground Sperl was being discontinued, but that the whole bean would still be available. That had better be true, or I will cancel my autoship account, which I've had since the early 90s.
Sperl is a very rich, full-bodied coffee, with just a hint on acidity. Each time you take a sip of this, you'll go, "ooh, this is good coffee." I promise.
