Rated 5 out of 5 by KAGreview Surprised at how good it was
The last time Gevalia k-cups had a sale, I went to the reviews and saw that many complaints were made about the cup design, the grounds left in the cup, and problems with clogging. I then tasted one my sister had ordered and was very impressed. Bold, smooth flavor, no grounds, and no problems with k-cup operation- an excellent cup of coffee. I then ordered I box of the dark royal roast and the decaf. No problems- great deal- excellent product. Try it . You will like it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by SusanL224 Not that great
I was very disappointed with this coffee. The name of the coffee leads one to believe that it is a dark roast. It was not. There was nothing unusual or exciting about it. It tasted like the Folgers my mother used to drink.
I am unhappy with this coffee and will not purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ineedajolt K-cups...Yea!!!!!
I'm thrilled that Gevalia is making K-cups! The coffee is very good and robust, but the K-cups are a little bit weak. They tend to slightly collapse when the poker thing punctures the cup. You have to be very careful when placing the K-cup in the coffee maker.

I've tried lots of different K-cups, this one is the BEST!

I am a bold coffee lover. This is a delicious, bold, wonderfully aromatic coffee with a smooth, rich taste, and not bitter at all.
I was excited to find they had K-cups! What a wonderful coffee treat, where I know every cup will be as perfect as the last one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by suzyq2also smooth rich coffee
I really enjoyed this coffee. It is a very full bodied coffee and for a dark roast it is very smooth no bitterness as some dark roast have. I would recommend it to everyone. Looking forward to try the rest.

I love strong bold coffee and this certainly fit the bill. Flavor is very rich and smells wonderful brewing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supergeek Absolutely the best
I used to prefer another brand until I tried Dark Royal Roast. It is rich but not bitter and has a unique aroma and flavor that makes me wonder why all coffees don't taste like this. I am the fussiest and most picky coffee drinker you will ever know. This brew is perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sarah40 Unlike Gevalia
I have never been disappointed in a Gevalia product until now. The flavor is just off. Tastes really cheap. Bummer because I was really excited to have Gevalia to use in the Keurig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildthang Big, Bold, Beautiful Flavor
A friend sent me four k-cups to try. After the first sip I was sold on it. It has a big, bold beautiful flavor. I am a lover of strong coffee and this one hit the mark. My husband liked it as well, even though he drinks a lesser bold in the morning, but said this would be his go to for the afternoon. If you like a "kick in the butt waker-upper" that awakens two of your senses (taste and smell), then you should be ordering the Dark Royal Roast k-cup coffee! Be a king and queen and drink Dark Royal Roast Coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flickaboogie Tastes great, not bitter
This is the best tasting coffee Gevalia makes for K-cups. I've tried them all so far and this one is the best. A little stronger than some but not bitter at all, makes me happy to get up in the morning. I've only had a few cups out of several boxes that have grounds in them, I just filter them out with a coffee filter.

My new favorite. No bitter after taste. Large cup setting yields a tasty flavor whereas others are weak-tasting at this setting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by crazyovercoffee Be wary: Excessive sludge and tiny grounds
I was excited to try these Dark Royal Roast K-cups as tend to like the bold brews. I do like the flavor of this roast but every single k-cups I have brewed (6:12 so far), I have needed to filter the tiny sludge grounds that also flow from the K-cups. I have not experienced Sooooo much grounds and sludge with any other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1CoffeeLoverMe Excellent Dark Coffee
It really doesn't get better than this. Dark, rich and flavorful.
I enjoy dark roasts, but this one is the best I have tried in a very long time. Good by itself; complements any meal, esp deserts. Do wish it came in decaf K-cups for late night pie, coffee and a movie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by maximusjones Grounds in my coffee every time.
This is not the quality I expect from Gevalia. The coffee would be wonderful if it didn't dump coffee grounds in my cup EVERY TIME. Do not buy Gevalia K-cups, unless you enjoy drinking coffee grounds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wolfie My tongue is now bald.
I generally love Gevalia's coffees, especially Stockholm Roast and Royal Vinter, but this product is horrid. Bitter. "Oily". Nasty. I'm so glad I only purchased the "12 pack" so I only have 11 more cups to suffer through. *shiver*
So far even diluting in half with milk hasn't helped cover that background oily bitterness. I am truly disappointed with this coffee.
I can't wait for K-cup versions of Stockholm Roast and Royal Vinter.

I have always loved the taste of Gevalia coffees, and was very pleased to see Gevalia producing the k-cups. I like a strong dark coffee and the Royal Dark Roast is one of the best I have tried. As are all of the Gevalia products I have tried, this is a step above the rest.
