Rated 4 out of 5 by RedwoodEd Good, but strong
If you like very strong coffee, you'll like Dark Royal Roast. It's a bit strong for my taste. It is not bitter or acidic, but quite potent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mukoo Good coffee but lacks bouquet
The Dark Royal Roast is a quality and good coffee. However, it lacks a distinctiveness that other good coffees have. It tastes good but does not have that quality aftertaste and aroma that is the hallmark of a coffee that is special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYcoffedrinker Tastes good
I like this coffee but I was expecting a much bolder flavor than what it is. After all the name gives you the impression that the taste is stronger than what it actually is. All in all still good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NancyW Wonderful coffee. Robust flavor with none of the bitterness... I
Robust flavor without the usual bitterness associated with most dark roast coffee pods.... I have tried at least 10 other brands and the Gevalia Darl Royal Roast beats them all. Now even my sister, a previous PEETS coffee lover, is drinking this one too! Love the wonderful flavor.

I don't need to spend $2.50 for a cup of coffee at a coffee house. This dark roast is better.

I only drink Gevalia coffee for in my opinion, they are the top of the line with flavor as proof!!!
1. My favorite is 'Columbia' for love the rich full body without being bitter.. Wonderful to wake up to or just to relax......Divine!!! Sometimes, I add a scoop of powdered vanilla which I buy from my fav' coffee house & it only adds to the delectable taste .... Scrumptious!!!
2. Next in line is the 'Dark Roast'. Again, rich & full bodied along with the excellent flavor....
3. Last but not least is the 'Signature Blend' which I enjoy for those moments where you may prefer something tasteful but a little less bold.....
I use the pods for my Keurig & love having that freshly brewed cup, when you want it... Gevalia coffee is the absolutely the only coffee there is!!! :)

I was a Chock Full O Nuts drinker for 35 years but wanted to switch to a K cup. I tasted a large variety of K cups available and after just one sip of the Dark Royal Roast from Gevalia I switched permanently. I always watch my email for special offers and stock up at that time. It has a rich and robust taste. Love it!

This coffee is my favorite. The taste is great like a cup of coffee should taste, and I tasted many different ones. The dark roast is full of flavor and not to strong. Great coffee.

Yes, I love a good strong yet smooth coffee and Dark Royal Roast did it!!! Of course I added my sweet cream liquid by coffee mate. What a special wake up coffee. And appreciated the online prices.

My favorite of Gevalia offerings. Previously my wife and I stayed mainly with Signature Blend which is still my wife's preference. I'm basically a morning coffee drinker and the Dark Roast really appeals to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFox Excellent, smooth coffee
Gevalia dark roast is a smooth dark, non acid coffee which, for me, is my staple all day beverage. It is never bitter, does not disturb my stomach and is just simply enjoyable.

Our local store only carries this sporadically, and both my husband and I prefer this particular roast. I appreciate that we can order an 18-ct box, and we really like the flavor. There's no acidic aftertaste to it, and it's smooth.

LOVE, love, love it. Full bodied, strong without being bitter. The only trouble is that there is no decaf version of it! I agree with the reviewer who noted that the Gevalia site is more expensive than the supermarket..and no discount for auto ordering......this should be reconsidered by the company. I would order on line if it was made attractive.

I like a bold dark coffee without the bitterness. This coffee was all of that. Although it was smooth I wish the roast tasted a little stronger. I would definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YankeeInATL Gevalia Dark Roast is smooth but full of flavor
Never bitter is true! Dark and full of rich coffee flavor -- I now drink it every day! For variety, I sometimes drink the Cappucino and flavored Lattes for my Keurig machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SV14 Much better than other brands for Keurig machines
Because of office redesign, I have had to stop using my own one-cup coffeemaker at my desk and have had to rely on the office's Keurig coffee machine. Since I do not like at all the brands that are made available at my office, I ordered Gevaila's Keurig1-suitable coffees. I do not think that these types of Gevalia coffees are as good as their regular boxed ground and whole bean coffees. It should be emphasized that my ratings are "internal," i.e., they are relative to the other non-K-cup-type Gevalia coffees. However, the Gevalia Royal Roast coffees for Keurig machines are far better than the other types I've tried. So, if like me, you have no choice but to use the Keurig machines, then this is by far the only choice you should consider.

I have been a customer of Gevalia for years until K cups came out. Now I can go back to Gevalia. The quality of coffee
is excellent and the taste is awesome in my estimation.
I am glad to get Gevalia again. i am going to get on the automatic delivery again. Thank you gevalia for joining
the K cup program.

Several months ago my grocery store stocked Gevalia coffee in the K-cups. I love trying new and different coffees. Now I'm hooked!!! Gevalia is my new favorite! It has a rich, natural taste with no after bite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJBulldog Dark roast that is not bitter!
I love the dark roast Gevalia coffee. I use them in the "k-cups". My ONLY problem is they are cheaper per box at my local market....I would think you would have many more customers, especially if you gave the auto-delivery customers a discount like another company does. I've been on their auto-system for years and I get $3 off each box and free shipping if I order 4 or more boxes. Since your coffee is at least a dollar higher per box and you do not give any incentive for being an auto-ship customer, I will probably stay with the other company and if I must have your dark roast, I can pick it up easily at my market. C'mon, Gevalia, give your customers a reason to use your product!!
