We have gotten this for years and is one of our favorites in whole beans. they list "Unfortunately, DARK ROAST WHOLE BEAN is being discontinued from our Collection. Item is available for one-time orders only, while supplies last.
Our team of coffee experts hand-picked a recommended alternative and thinks you’ll love Breakfast Blend Whole Bean"
BUT that is no where near as good and we do not like most of their other dark roast as this was the best that they carried!

Lovely aroma, full body and smooth on the tongue.
I have been drinking Gevalia Dark Roast for the past 26 years and am quite disappointed that it is being discontinued. One would think that 13 of 17 positive reviews would tell a company all they need to know about their product. I hope to be able to find another coffee at Gevalia as aromatic, full bodied and smooth as the Dark Roast. I have served it to scores of friends and family over the years and it has always been a satisfying way to start the day or finish a meal.

Bring Back Whole Beans!
I have been buying the regular Dark Roast for many years and am VERY disappointed to learn that the company has discontinued the whole bean version.
For now, I have signed up to continue my auto-delivery order with the pre-ground version as a substitute. I certainly hope it tastes as good as the fresh ground coffee I was drinking each day!
I would MUCH prefer that the decision-makers re-think this move and restore the whole bean version as one of the selections.

Was a great coffee
Right up until they've discontinued the whole bean version. Seems they are discontinuing a lot of whole bean offerings. As a long time customer on regular delivery, I'm disappointed and will have to look for another quality supplier for my morning fix. Not sure who at Gevalia is making these decisions, but it seems like a bad one.

BEST in the WORLD
This is the BEST coffee I have ever had, period. My husband and I have been drinking it each morning (and taking a travel mug to work) for 10 years.

I have gotten this flavor for years and love it. It is so rich and full flavored. It is my favorite of all the dark roasts. They mention breakfast blend as an alternative. Don't bother. Breakfast blend is bland and boring after having tried the dark roast. Dark roast is superb and so much better than any other type offered.

Product unavailable? Oh No!
We are terribly disappointed the Dark Roast Whole Bean Decaf has been unavailable for awhile, as we have enjoyed it for years. We grind our coffee fresh each morning, a mixture of whole bean regular and decaf. Please bring it back.

The only coffee I drink
I've been drinking DARK ROAST for about 20 years. It has body and strength, but is smooth with no bitterness. It is the only coffee I drink at home. The gourmet and chain coffee houses seem to believe that coffee should smell and taste like burnt toast. I've tried other blends of coffee, and Gevalia DARK ROAST is the only coffee I buy.
