Rated 5 out of 5 by DarkRoastFan This is the best coffee ever!!!
This is by far the most flavorful coffee I have ever tasted. I like both the "high-test" and decaf versions. I'm devastated that my last shipments came with labels indicating that the dark roast is being discontinued. There really is no substitute for this particular roast. Believe me, I've tried all the different coffees over the years. I needed to find one that would stand up to hours in my thermos when I carted it to work and that wouldn't give me indigestion. Gevalia dark roast lived up to all my expectations and I've been drinking this particular Gevalia roast since 1994. I have to say that mornings will not be the same without it. I just can't say enough good things about Gevalia dark roast....it's simply the best!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by azsunshine Love this
We have gotten this for years and is one of our favorites in whole beans. they list "Unfortunately, DARK ROAST WHOLE BEAN is being discontinued from our Collection. Item is available for one-time orders only, while supplies last.
Our team of coffee experts hand-picked a recommended alternative and thinks you’ll love Breakfast Blend Whole Bean"
BUT that is no where near as good and we do not like most of their other dark roast as this was the best that they carried!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edgar77 Lovely aroma, full body and smooth on the tongue.
I have been drinking Gevalia Dark Roast for the past 26 years and am quite disappointed that it is being discontinued. One would think that 13 of 17 positive reviews would tell a company all they need to know about their product. I hope to be able to find another coffee at Gevalia as aromatic, full bodied and smooth as the Dark Roast. I have served it to scores of friends and family over the years and it has always been a satisfying way to start the day or finish a meal.

There is no better cup of coffee than the Dark Roast. My friends and family look forward to stopping by for a cup of coffee - and many placed their own orders!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LK2014 Bring Back Whole Beans!
I have been buying the regular Dark Roast for many years and am VERY disappointed to learn that the company has discontinued the whole bean version.
For now, I have signed up to continue my auto-delivery order with the pre-ground version as a substitute. I certainly hope it tastes as good as the fresh ground coffee I was drinking each day!
I would MUCH prefer that the decision-makers re-think this move and restore the whole bean version as one of the selections.

Our family has been using the dark roast coffee for many years and love it. We like strong coffee but not bitter coffee so this meets our needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sdsteve Was a great coffee
Right up until they've discontinued the whole bean version. Seems they are discontinuing a lot of whole bean offerings. As a long time customer on regular delivery, I'm disappointed and will have to look for another quality supplier for my morning fix. Not sure who at Gevalia is making these decisions, but it seems like a bad one.

Still my favorite coffee, but it doesn't have the richness and strength that it once did.

Was just thinking this am how much pleasure I get out of my Gavalia dark roast. It's been at least 15 years and have never waviered. Several times as a special thank you to valued friends I have gift wrapped box of Dark Roast Gevalia. Good way to keep friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tigers65 I Love this and will drink it everyday.
I have been drinking Gevalia for years and the Decaf French Roast is the best on the market. It is smooth and full bodied. It is just wonderful hot or iced.

This is the BEST coffee I have ever had, period. My husband and I have been drinking it each morning (and taking a travel mug to work) for 10 years.

This product is always in my order. Whenever I decide to sample another coffee bean, I always come back to this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by azsunshine love this
I have gotten this flavor for years and love it. It is so rich and full flavored. It is my favorite of all the dark roasts. They mention breakfast blend as an alternative. Don't bother. Breakfast blend is bland and boring after having tried the dark roast. Dark roast is superb and so much better than any other type offered.

Now if you could get your shipping department to send out product faster that would be wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Berkberry The taste is so good - consistantly
This dark roast is exceptional in the rich good taste and never bitter, just a good tasty cup in the morning, strong but mellow, this makes the morning experience so enjoyable. Always just right ...I always take my time to enjoy it. I'm a fan also of your mocca java. A customer forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IlaSue The best decaf coffee I have ever had
I made this purchase because you told me you were discontinuing this coffee. I have never found a decaf coffee with as much coffee flavor and no smokey notes. I stocked up to the extent I can but you need to rethink the discontinuation.

We love the dark roast DECAF and can't understand why it's not available on our regular direct shipments. What do you plan to replace it with?

My husband and I can't live without the Dark Roast. We tell all our friends about the great flavor. We purchased Gevalia at our local grocery store and was disappointed. We are going to continue the mail order.

I have to use more product to have bold taste and it has a strong acid taste which I do not like.

I have been getting the Dark Roast coffee for many years now and absolutely love it, as do all the friends and family who visit! I even take it on the road with me, with my own little coffee pot, so I can enjoy a taste of home wherever I am!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eornom Product is great!
"....avoid writing about customer service; contact us instead if you have issues requiring immediate attention." Sure tell us what we can and can not write about!
Forget about it....I was an auto delivery customer for over 12 years and had to cancel the service because it was not consistent. It's easier AND faster to order when you need it as opposed to auto delivery. Love the coffee, hate the service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JackLV Delicious, rich flavor.
Since my usual standing order of decaf Espresso was not longer available, I tried this decaf dark roast and was very pleasantly surprised how similar it is to my favored espresso. It is rich and flavorful and an excellent replacement for the espresso. If you are looking for a strong, rich and delicious coffee, I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StarLydia French Roast is well rounded flavor.
I have been using Gevalia for over twenty years and have found the French Roast flavor my favorite go to for coffee for all my entertaining. My friends rave about my coffee, and this is music to my ears. I do not always drink coffee, but when I do, it's my French Roast. I have tried other expensive brands and always come back to Gevalia. I recommend it and can't stop raving about it. I have used Gevalia for over twenty years and it has never let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LUVMYBEANS One of the best!
One of my best DINNER coffees from Gevalia.com
My family feel extra special when I always serve this to them. My hubby loves to come home to a fresh brewed pot of DARK ROAST and unwind from a hectic work day or hunting!
And for me? A touch of liquid heaven.
