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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Grounds in my coffee.
Do NOT buy Gevalia K-Cups. Their design is different than any other K-Cups I have purchased. This rigid design causes the plastic to expand and doesn't allow the built in filter to stay in place. As a result there are grounds in my cup of coffee every time. PLEASE FIX THIS GEVALIA!

Design flaw with grounds
The coffee is good but there are some serious design issues with the k cups. I do not know if it is the ridges, the weakness of the plastic or what but just about every other k cup explodes with grounds. You guys should have made these perfect BEFORE you rolled them out.

grounds in my cup
I purchased this because it was on sale and regret it. The first cup had lots of coffee grounds in my coffee. I thought it was a fluke and dumped my coffee and made another cup of a different brand. I tried this again today and again I have coffee grounds in my coffee. I will not be buying this again, even on sale it's not worth it.

Waited So Long...eh
I wanted Gevalia coffee in K-cups so badly...and I so disappointed. The K-cup version of Gevalia stalls my Keurig coffeemaker...just momentarily until you figure-out that a hole did not punch in the bottom of the cup...the Gevalia version of K-cup has ridges on the sides of the cup and does not slip smoothly into the apparatus for the cup...that aside for the Signature coffee which I usually love brewed the taste, aroma and kick of coffee totally missing...the Colombian was much better even at the 10 oz measure.

I was hesitant to try it because of so many bad K-cup choices that I've made. But I am pleasantly surprised that it actually taste like the coffee I brew at home. This is a great find!

Best K-cup ever!
This is my favorite K-cup! It's not to weak and it's not to strong....it's perfect! It's so smooth, and no bitter after taste. I love it!

K-cup container is hard to puncture
I love the coffee, however, I have tried using the K-cups on 2 different Keurig coffee makers and both have trouble piercing the K-cup (the bottom of the K-cup). I have not had trouble with any other brand of coffee that makes K-cups. I had to throw away several K-cups that I could never get the Keurig to pierce and made a huge mess a couple of times trying to get it to work. That winds up being pretty expensive. I will not be buying the K-cups again until the packaging issues are resolved.

Why do you not offer decaf choices? This is not a good beginning.

We were Gevalia junkies until the Keurig came around. We sampled several K-cup coffees over the years finding ones we preferred to others. However, when I stumbled upon this, I was sooo happy. I had even called Gevalia to request if they would consider offering k-cups. Yay... My husband and I both enjoy the drinkability of this Signature k-cup blend. Great coffee flavor and smooth finish. Yep. It's a keeper.
