K cups are horrible
I have the same problem and my kerig IS clean. A mound of grounds in the bottom of my cup every time, yes some are ok once and a while but 1/2 the kcup full of grounds in my coffee is not. And it doesnt seem as if the cups fit properly in the machine. All my other k cups fit nicely in the machine and this one seems too big for it its taller. Regret purchase and will not buy again. With a name like Gevalia I expected perfection, not this.

Love Gevalia, Hate their K-cups
We have been Gevalia customers for over two decades, and were elated when the K-cups arrived. We were certain that the K-cups would solve waste issues with pouring out remaining coffee with regular coffee makers. Not so. I have read the other reviews, and I agree: the issues/cons with these K-cups far outweigh any time or cost savings. We have tried all the solutions suggested in the reviews here and on other sites (changing filter, using filtered water, descaling, cleaning machine, pressing down K-cup onto needle b/f closing lid, using filtered water, running water through machine after each K-cup, etc.) - all with intermittent success - NEVER consistent. We have had to use TWO K-cups to get a SINGLE cup of coffee - and with grounds in the mug. NOT ACCEPTABLE, especially at the added expense for K-cups! Talk about jumping through hoops to get a cup of coffee! We have had our Keurigs (two machines) for over two years. Since these Gevalia K-cups are the only ones creating problems, we will be forced to return to manually adding Gevalia coffee to the My K-Cup accessory provided with the Keurig or use our second choice for K-cup coffees. When we actually do get a cup of coffee from the K-cups, it is awesome! I hope Gevalia is reading these reviews, and fixes the problems with these K-cups. I will recommend the ground Gevalia coffees, but I cannot recommend the K-cups.

Smoothest coffee I've ever had
This blend is amazing. After trying this light blend, it's hard to go back to other brands. It's just so smooth and delicious. I can't say enough about it. I don't love coffee that is bitter and to strong. This is perfect!

K-cup malfunction fix
I had the same problem with the K-cups until I started manually pushing the cups down until I hear it pop, then close the lid. Problem solved and it's an easy fix.

Grounds in EVERY cup
Everytime I use this in my Keurig it plugs the needle and the coffee drips out. I get grounds in my coffee and when you get to the bottom of the cup the coffee is so thick and full of grounds. I would not recommend the k cups at all.

Great cup of coffee
I bought a one cup coffee maker for work because I was tired of tossing out pots of coffee at the end of every day - so when it came to buying coffee I turned to Gevalia because I know the coffee is great tasting and everyone would love it. It has been a huge success and very few people are drinking the "firm" coffee and prefer to use the one cup coffee maker and the Gevalia Signature Blend. Thanks for the great coffee!!

This is not my usual but Gevalia Signature Blend is amazing. I received it in a sample pack a lady at work brought to me. I think it may be my new go to coffee. Delicious!

I've been wanting to try Gevalia for some time. I was so happy it came in a K-cup version so I tried it! The coffee is just excellent. It's smooth and smells wonderful and not bitter at all. I know some reviews have said they had problems using the K-cup but I've used an entire box with no issues. If you like a tasty, but not overly strong coffee, try the signature blend.

grounds in my cup...
The taste is great, but the k-cups are leaking grounds into every cup I make. Gevalia is the only brand that I have this problem with. I have cleaned my brewer many times, and run it without a k-cup until I can see that it is clean and my brew is clear of grounds. The minute I put in a Gevalia cup, I get grounds again. There are so many grounds in the cup that I have to strain it in order to even drink it. It completely negates the convenience of using the Keurig brewer. I will not buy this brand again.

Problematic Single Serve Cups
I bought the Gevalia Signature Blend Single Server Cups for use with my Keurig machine. I have tried numerous brands of K-Cups, and these are the first I've had any operating issues with. After reading some of the other reviews, it seems others have expericienced similar instances/issues. My first attempt resulted in no coffee. After removing the cup, I noticed the bottom had not punctured. The second attempt produced copious amounts of grounds in the cup. I've been drinking coffe for a while now, as I imagine most of us have, and this was not the run of the mill couple/few grounds in the bottom of the cup. This was a mound of grounds. After allowing the cup to cool, I opened the foil top and noted the filter had become approximately half removed from the top of the cup. This was not due to me opening he cup, as I went from the center of the foil out, and never went all the way to the ends. The ridged sides of these cups seem to be less durable/strong than smooth cups, and seem more sensitive to the heat that is produced. These are the only ridged cups I use, and the only cups I have had any issues with.

I only recently tried Gevalia after seeing their K-cups at Target. I absolutely love them. The Signature blend is my new favorite, and now it is all I want to drink in the mornings. It is very smooth, not at all bitter, but has a richness in the flavor that isn't at all watered down. I have one of the first models of a Keurig, and my machine has had zero problems with these K-cups. Love, love, love! I hope you make a medium or dark roast in decaf!!!

Having a cup now!
This signature blend is one of my favorite k-cups. I love to share it with others because it has great taste. It isn't too strong for those older folks who drink mild coffees all day long, but it is strong enough to satisfy those of us who like a lot of flavor.

Makes a very good cup of coffee!
I received a 2 k cup free sample - tried it and I'm hooked. Fantastic coffee. It actually tastes like coffee - not the watered down stuff you get at the gas station being passed off as coffee. As for problems - they all have problems from time to time. I have purchased product directly from Keurig and had several to only give me a half cup. Coffee grounds in the bottom of your cup? Come on, it's coffee! Even brewed coffee sometimes has grounds residue. So all these "problem" are non issues with me. So far, I have gotten an enjoyable cup every time I've made a cup of Signature Blend. And yes I will keep buying them. Just wished they were on sale more and you could find more coupons - I drink so much is is getting expensive! Bottom line - good full bodied coffee. Yes I would recommend this to anyone looking for a k cup coffee!

love the rich flavor.
This coffee is the ah! of your first sip of good coffee. I love that it is not at all bitter. will continue ordering and trying different flavors. Thanks for a good cup of coffee.

I, too, had problems with the K-cup failing to puncture. I discovered that if I tilted the cup forward and closed the lid slowly rather than pop it down I rarely have the problem. And if I don't feel it puncture, I open the lid and check it before I try to brew. Realign the hole with the spike before brewing. After it becomes a habit, it is not a bother.

Love the coffee, but not the k cup
I recently purchased this coffee for the first time, and on my first try had a coffee mess every where. Tried a second time without a problem and loved the taste but have yet to have another without tons of coffee grounds or leaking everywhere! As I see on website I'm not the only one. I'm a little dissapointed in gevalia to continue selling this product with a known defect. I will be returning the box back to the store! Hope you develop a new design gevalia!

Coffee is great but not the cup itself
I love the taste of the Gevalia Signature K cups but have had similar issues to other posters on this review. The coffee itself is one of my favorites but the K cup design is apparently flawed. When I brew the coffee I have never had any grinds in the coffee but the issue that I have encountered is that the cup does not puncture properly. I have this issue with my new K cup machine but never have this problem with my older machine at work. Even when the coffee does come out fine and I remove the cup you can see that the cup itself has warped from the design. I called and spoke with customer service who were very understanding and easy to work with. I feel once they get the cup design fixed this coffee k cup product will be one of the best out there.

This is the best coffee. It is never bitter and is very smooth.
For many yars I purchased ground coffee from this company and then purchased pods when they carried them. They stopped carrying them and I switched to a Keurig system and had to purchase k cups through other companies. I was disappointed. I was so excited when Gevalia started selling k cups. I love the Signature Blend. I am so happy to have my great cup of coffee again. Thank you Gevalia.

Design Issues, Decent Coffee
Like several others, I went through a few watery, ground-filled and small cups of coffee before I noticed that the spike on my Keurig couldn't easily puncture the bottom of the K-cup. It's a new Keurig, and the problem only occurs with Gevalia and the related Maxwell House K-cups. It's solved by manually pushing the cup on to the spike, then closing the lid of the Keurig.
The coffee itself is decent enough.
April 3, 2013
Same as everyone else
These are the worst cups I've tried so far. They fail to give me a full cup more than they work.
The plastic seems to get fully pierced, I think it's the filter inside that's failing. I'll try pushing the cups on the bottom spike before closing to get through this box without wasting any more.
I love the coffee, but will never buy their k-cups again.

Must Have Fixed The Problems
I've been using the Gevalia K-Cups for about a month now. I have to admit I haven't been running into the problems I've read about on this forum. I haven't experienced coffee grounds leaking out nor the Keurig failing to puncture the bottom of the K-Cup. Is it possible Gevalia has corrected the problems, or did some have defective machines with pins that didn't fully extend into the K-Cup? I do believe those who made those observations, but I personally haven't been experiencing these problems. As far as the coffee taste is concerned, I just love it. There's a pleasant mellowness to Gevalia coffee. The medium and stronger coffees have avoided the bitter after-taste that is so prevalent in other popular coffee companies.
March 30, 2013
I love this coffee! Gevalia is just the best tasting coffee and even in the K-cups you cannot beat it. It's rich and tastes like brewed coffee. My new coffee!
March 30, 2013
My favorite coffee by far
I have always loved Gevalia. As soon as they come out with a k-cup, I bought a generic k-cup brewer. I have not been disappointed. These brew up as excellent as regular Gevalia coffee. Excellent coffee without the hassle of the grounds and pot, I highly recommend these!

Nothing but coffee grinds!
Did not really get the chance to enjoy this product because about 95% of my brews had too much coffee grinds! The filters need to be improved!

Most Gevalia K-cups dont work well in the Keurig
I was elated to find out my favorite tasting coffee was now available for my Keurig in the k-cup. However all three flavors had MAJOR issues with my Keurig. I have used several other brands of K-cups and have brewed hundreds of cups of coffee through it and unfortunately the Gevalia brand K-cup leave over a teaspoon of coffee grounds in each cup or wont brew it at all leaving a mess when you open the liid due to the built up pressure. I hope no one else is having this issue.

Very nice light coffee!
This is a very nice light coffee. It is better than Starbucks blond roast and tastes more like a coffee house coffee. I'm sitting here with a cup of it now. Have a great day.

So glad I found it.
This was always my favorite brand of coffee. I used to have a different coffee maker and used the T Disc. Just recently found this brand in K Cups. Very happy and love this coffee.

Coffee grounds in my cup
Thought I would try this Gevalia k-cup but what a surprise I got with 6 out of 7 tries. Only 1 cup was drinkable and almost every cup was riddled with grounds. Sad too because the one good cup I did get to drink I thought was very good. I will not purchase these again until I've heard this design flaw has been fixed.

A fab find!
I love my Keurig, but have been trying to find the perfect coffee to sip and enjoy while I read the morning newspaper. I stumbled upon this signature blend at Target a few weeks ago and fell in love! It's the perfect blend of coffee, light enough to start out the morning.

Poor K-Cup design
I would not recommend the type of K-cups used by Gevalia due to the cup not being sturdy enough. I've had to throw most of mine away as a result of the plastic crumbling when inserting the cup into my machine and lowering the lever to puncture the hole in the bottom of the cup. The cup is not strong enough to withstand the pressure needed for the needle to puncture a hole through the bottom of this cup. This also caused my machine to get clogged up as it would try to brew but the water could not go anywhere...disappointed.
