Rated 5 out of 5 by HankW My ONLY daily cup of coffee!
For years, my daily coffee has been Gevalia French Roast. From the addictive aroma when first opening a fresh package to the aroma as it brews, followed by the smooth, rich taste without a hint of bitterness, even when made strong the way I prefer, it is always the highlight of the day! I always make my "brew" in a 4-cup, cone-shaped drip coffee maker, which concentrates the water over the grounds during brewing, using Gevalia's cone filters. My recipe: 3 cups of filtered water (using the coffee maker's water measure) and 4 level scoops of French Roast, using Gevalia's measuring scoop. The result fills a 20-oz.ceramic cup with brewed perfection, full-bodied and robust, without a hint of bitterness! I keep the cup on a cup warmer and savor the coffee at my leisure. Brew it up and enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SadInUtah So sad French Roast desn't make your "cut"!
My husband & I have been loyal customers of your French Roast decaf for YEARS. A good, decaf French roast is really hard to find. I am really bummed that it is being discontinued!!! We have tried the suggested alternative but it just isn't "right". PLEASE reconsider the decision to discontinue your French Roast!

Guess I'm not the only unhappy camper in the club. I'm with Becky, sunshine et al. (other reviewers) and am very disappointed that Gevalia French Roast has been discontinued in the whole bean. I have been enjoying Gevalia for 10 years. I have tried other blends (and the blends of other companies) and they don't compare. Nothing tastes as rich and flavorful as Gevalia French Roast. Also, I use a french press and the Chemex, which make using pre-ground coffee too fine. You should listen to your customers and bring it back. French Roast Whole Bean is great - it's a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sunshineaz We like this a lot
We have gotten Gevalia coffee for at least 10 years and have enjoyed many flavors. We especially enjoy grinding our own beans and making a very fresh pot of coffee. It is so much better than the grounds which tends to loose flavor after opening. Our favorites have been French roast, Dark Roast, Velvet Noir and Royal Vinter all now available in Ground only. We also liked Café Greco (unavailable), Dark Chocolate Truffle (always on back order when our auto delivery ships), crème brulee and Café Sperl (unavailable). We have tried several other medium and dark roast whole beans that are now available and have found nothing that we like. For now, we are ordering the ones we like in the ground versions, but really hope you bring some good flavors in to your offerings. As it is, we do not like the Stokholm , breakfast blend, light roast, espresso roast, signature blend, special reserves collection and the passport collection coffees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikesbecky Sad discontinuation
I'm uncertain as to why Gevalia would discontinue this roast. My husband and I have had French Roast auto delivered for over ten years and have yet to find a decent substitute. Guess we will have to find one now!

I like French roast mixed with French vanilla creamer. The coffee does stand out even with the creamer. Nice bold flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunnmaker My favorite coffee!
I have been drinking Gevalia French Roast coffee for many years. At first I would save it and drink it only on weekends. Soon I was drinking it every day! I mix regular with decaffeinated in equal parts so I don't get too much caffeine. I am sorry to see the decaffeinated being discontinued.
