The best medium bodied coffee on the market. We've bought Gevalia brand coffee for nearly 25 yr. This one is the best of the medium bodied coffees.
There is no aftertaste and it has the perfect balance of aroma and acidity.
We've tried many brands from around the world and this is by far the best!

Has been my favorite for years!
Love the taste. Have mixed the regular and decaf since I began using it. Wish it came in single serve and half and half as well. Have found when using the ground coffee in the Kuerig K Cup, that the flavor is not as intense as brewing it in a drip maker.

Exceptional robust flavor and depth!! Having received over 100 shipments in the last 15 years, I can say with complete confidence , "bravo".

Very BAD after taste
I have had Gevalia in the past and was excited to get the coffee and try it out. Both my wife and I were VERY disappointed in this coffee... go get floger's it would be better and cheaper.

I love Gevalia Traditional Roast coffee. Its smooth and full bodied and never, ever bitter. I'm usually a person who needs to put flavored creamer in my coffee but I can even drink this one black or with just a bit of milk or unflavored creamer and its still wonderful. It may not be incredibly unique because its "just" a traditional roast, but its a well made coffee at a reasonable price which in itself makes it somewhat unique nowadays. I definitely recommend it.

This is the best tasting coffee ever.
This Traditional Roast is simply a great tasting coffee. It is always full-bodied and never bitter. It's hard to quit with just one pot.

The best coffee ever!
My husband and I have been buying Gevalia Traditional Roast whole bean for about 10 years and, though we've tried other coffees, Gevalia Traditional Roast is still our favorite. We used to be on the automatic shipment program but when it became available in our grocery store we stopped the mail order program and began buying it in the store - it's the same coffee and now, we just pick it up when we doing our other shopping and often get it on special. We're Traditional Roast drinkers for life!

Better than yuban
the only thing lacking here is a uniqueness! Other then that it's great!

There isn't a better coffee anywhere else. I've used this for years. Guests love it and I highly recommend it to them. I just wish my local supermarket (Safeway) carried it decaf, but they only carried the regular caffeinated.

Excellent in every way
Without a doubt, The best coffee I have ever tasted. Auto-delivery is a great way never to run out.

This is the blend that switched me from Green Mermaid
This is the blend that switched me from the green mermaid habit. At the first sip, I had that "A-ha!" discovery moment. A noticeably better flavor and smoothness than the coffee I had been drinking. I'm a new fan, already a subscriber. Have yet to try teh other Gevalia blends, but looking forward to it. Go Johan!

Great Aroma and Taste!!
I have used the Traditional blend for many many years and use it alone or mix it with other Gevalia flavors (i.e.cinnamon , hazelnut or pumpkin). I can't say enough about how fresh it stays in your freezer, that is if it lasts that long. I have given this with a flavored coffee to good friends who also love it and consider it a treat!

The only coffee I will drink
I have been drinking Gevalia's Traditional Coffee since I was 2 years old. (yes, 2 years old. with a lot of milk in it)
So I have been drinking it for 53 years.
When I first came to California, I had my Mom send me coffee from Sweden once a month. I was so happy when I could order it on-line. If I ever run out of Gevalia, I rather be without coffee than to drink some other brand.
I will drink this coffee to the day I die.

smooth and sweet
When you see a commercial for other name brand coffees on tv, they're waking up to a good smelling coffee in the morning and the person takes that first delectable sip and it's got you craving a cup so badly and all the emotions that go with it. This coffee fulfills that experience perfectly!

A good wake you up
I love to come down stairs and have my coffee maker already brewing the traditional roast coffee and the aroma is wonderful I have stand and smell the coffee before I can go on with my day it is such a great wake me up that I can not do without it.

Good for all ages
I only drink coffee on special occasions, or on days I have important business meetings or exams. However, Traditional Roast is by far the best coffee I have ever tasted. I very much like the smooth taste and aroma. I am always in a better mood when I drink this.

Traditional roast Gevalia has a one-of-a-kind taste making it unique among the many other competitors. We have tried many other coffee brands. None of them have th strong, great taste, We attribute part of this to the very fne grind of the beans and the uniques beans themselves.
July 9, 2012
It used to be better
This used to be one of my favorites, but something has changed. My last several boxes (I order online) have been of poorer quality. The beans are not uniform (some light, some darker) and the taste is more bland than it used to be. It still is smooth and not bitter, but I wonder what has happened. The other Gevalia coffees I order are still flavorful and wonderful.

IT IS A REAL GOOD COFFEE
I LIKE THE TAST AND I WOULD TELL MY FRIENDS ABOUT WHN THEY COME THAY AWAY WANT COFFEE.THANK YOU JUDY

I bought this coffee today at the supermarket, as I had tried the Stockholm Roast before and liked it very much. I enjoy a good flavorful cup of coffee, and sorry to say this was far, far too bland. I don't like dark roast, just full-bodied flavor, and I can't imagine trying this again. Sorry---a waste of money.
June 1, 2012
I have been getting this roast for so long now. I have purchased many brands of coffee but this is my absolute favorite. I have told so may people about this coffee in the coffee isle of the supermarket. The flavor is smooth, aroma is full and I have served this coffee to MANY friends and family and they've all loved it. I will not have another brand in my cupboard...and yes, I have an entire cupboard devoted to Gevalia!

best coffee EVER
gosh i have been using this coffee for decades and i have always had the exact flavor EVERY time...this stuff needs to be injected for those that need a shot of the "happy times"
i have used other coffees from these folks different lines' although fabs too the traiditional always brings be home. been using this sensational coffee sinc the seventies and it wows me EVERY cup!!!!

Simply a perfect coffee
I am not surprised there are those who find this coffee lacking in flavor. After all, the coffee available in the supermarkets lately seems to me to be offered in three basic categories, dark, burnt and charcoal; yes that's right, we've all been clobbered by a certain mermaid. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my latte's as much as the next person; when I'm out and about that is. But at home I prefer a nice cup of traditional coffee flavor with a meal or just for coffee time. I find this particular roast so perfect, I have to remind myself not to over-consume. After all, we all need to sleep once in a while.

the coffee lacks in taste
I tried it for the first time today. I first noticed a chemical taste to the coffee. Since I drink coffee all day the taste is very important to me. I will not be buying this product again.
March 10, 2012
drinking it today! good taste and aroma.no bite.smooth and an all-day coffee.

Safeway Brand was more expensive
I prepare my quart individual serving of coffee differently from most folks; I grind beans fresh boil filtered water then stir in coffee too steep for 5-10 minutes putting through coffee filter. Coffee looked like tea in color and wasn’t strong enough for my taste and normal amount of coffee used, I’m drinking moved on from the more expensive coffees couple 3 years ago.

I used to receive this product by mail and was very pleased; however when I purchased Traditional recently in my supermarket, the result was disappointing. Even with almost double the amount of product, taste was almost non-existent and without body and aroma. What has happened to Gevalia? The same was true of the flavored coffee I purchased. My brewing has not changed. I noticed another review of supermarket purchase was similar.

I have been using regular and decaf Traditional Roast in Medium Roast since 1995. I initially started using it for its purity & processing technique. I drink my coffee black and It is always smooth, never bitter. I use it exclusively and when I served it to company, everyone always comments on how good it is & wants to know the brand.
