Used to be GREAT
I've had a subscription for Gevalia Dark Roast over 20 years. Loved it as is and as a base for other blending. Recommended it over and over. Something changed. Last two orders coffee was in silver bag (used to be gold) and the quality of the coffee has gone from gold quality to silver or maybe even bronze. Something changed besides the bag color. It tastes like decaf, flat and uninspiring. Same coffeemaker, same water, same amount of coffee. This makes me very sad to have to write!

I have always shied away from dark roast coffees thinking that they would be too strong tasting & bitter...but I was so wrong. This Dark Roast has become my favorite. Such a nice mellow taste. I especially enjoy it in the winter although it is good anytime.

European boldness at its best!
Dark roast has long been my ultimate favorite from Gevalia. After a short stay in Denmark, I realized that the stronger, bolder coffees common to northern Europe suited my taste better than anything else.
Never bitter, I grind my beans very fine to get the most of this robust coffee. Good any season, any time, any temperature, it has remained the first coffee I turn to when I want a superb cup of coffee.

Best Dark Roast - Ever
I have tried all of the other full flavor/dark roast blends, and the Dark Roast by far, is the best. It is very smooth, not very acidic and is good for any time of day. The flavor beats any blend I have found on Gevalia, popular chains (Starbucks, Seattle's Best, etc), or the grocery store. I have been drinking this blend for at least 8 years and Gevalia for at least twice that long. I do not foresee ever needing to make a change.
