So not pleased with Chocolate Raspberry being discontinued. Sort of like watching Father Knows Best and then it's over.
I am going to try the decaffeinated type and mis it with the Vanilla Nut. Sort of like an addiction and someone snatches the rug out from under you. I have been a customer for years, got my family to order, etc. Disappointment.

Enjoy a cup of flavored coffee every evening while watching TV.

I cant believe it! So disappointed!
Dear Gevalia, I have received automated shipments for sometime now and have always been so excited to receive my shipment with all my assorted flavor favorites. Chocolate Raspberry and Mocha are my absolute favs. I always rotated between those flavors along with the Amaretto. Well to my dismay and disbelief they are all discontinued. I am seriously considering canceling my automated shipments. I have been a long time customer and I really hope you rethink your decision. There is nothing like a cup of Chocolate Raspberry or Mocha served black. The richness and aroma cannot be replaced.

Perfect tinge of raspberry
A luscious yet delicate blend, with neither the chocolate nor the raspberry overpowering the rich coffee taste. It's been one of my favorites for years. What a shame Gevalia is discontinuing it.

Don't discontinue this Great Coffee!
This is a great coffee. When I first tried it, I thought, "This is a great weekend / treat coffee." Well that didn't last long and it quickly became my every day coffee.
I'm more than disappointed that its being discontinued. It's been a part of my life for over 15 years, and life just won't be the same without it.
I saw Gevalia's response as to why its being discontinued. I'm asking that they reconsider - apparently this coffee has a loyal fan base - kind of like Star Trek in the 60's. Don't make the mistake that NBC made and keep this coffee going!

Bad Decision to Discontinue
We have been receiving Chocolate Raspberry for at least 10 years. It was a rather unique flavor and one of the few flavored coffees we liked. In the last shipment I was provided a substitute, Dark Chocolate Truffle, but couldn't even finish the package - it tasted artificial. The Chocolate Raspberry and Mocha flavors kept us as a loyal customer. There are a lot of good unflavored coffees on the market, so not sure I will continue as a customer.

Best coffee I ever tasted, I am broken hearted you are discontinuing.
I have received chocolate raspberry auto delivery since 1997. I must have it every day. There are other flavors I like as an alternate but none can replace chocolate raspberry. I have never found a more satisfying blend of aroma and flavor. I may have to give up coffee altogether when this flavor is gone. PLEASE reconsider. I would hate to end our relationship as the auto delivery and customer service have always been great. But no reason to stay when chocolate raspberry goes :(

So disappointed this flavor is being discontinued. For many years we have been getting it on auto delivery. May cancel our delivery of coffee.

DONT DISCONTINUE THIS FLAVOR GEVALIA!!!!
This is my all time favorite flavor of coffee. I am so sad to see it go. I just purchased 15 boxes and am wondering if that is even enough. You will lose my business Gevalia forever by discontinuing this flavor ;'(
FYI Dark chocolate truffle is not a suitable substitute...

A taste you'll remember
I stopped drinking coffee for a few years, and only recently started drinking it again. I got a single K cup brewer as a gift and ordered different flavored coffees from various sites. All the while, remembering how much I loved the flavor of this coffee in the past. I bought one of the plastic cups that you can fill with ground coffee to use with this brewer, in anticipation of being able to enjoy Gevalia Chocolate Raspberry again. I just came back to this site for the first time to get my Chocolate Raspberry and I was so disappointed to see that it is being discontinued. Gevalia, please reconsider. If this coffee is good enough for someone to remember the flavor over the years, it is probably good enough to withstand the test of time. If this flavor came in the k-cup packaging, it would probably fly off the store shelves as nothing else is as good!

Extremely disappointed that Choc-Rasp is discontinued
Chocolate Raspberry coffee has been the flavor I have been having delivered for many years. Many of the other flavors are good but this is one I crave every day. I am so disappointed - this is one of the few pleasures I splurge on.

My favorite!! So unique!!
Just signed on to re-stock my fave Chocolate Raspberry to see that Gevalia has decided to discontinue this flavor. I've been drinking this for many years and I am SO UPSET!! Why are you doing this, Gevalia?? No one else makes a flavor like this, and it is so delicious and unique! Please reconsider?!
I makes an AMAZING café au lait. I just purchased 10 boxes - hopefully that will last me a long, long time. Or maybe I should have purchased 20?

Don't usually like flavored coffees, but I like this one
January 10, 2014
Love the bold yet soothing flavor. I typically only drink coffee in the morning but can't help looking forward to another cup during the middle of the day.

Coffee has a mild raspberry flavor, not overwhelming like some similar coffees with the same name.
January 5, 2014
This coffee makes me want to get up in the morning and stay up to get things done! What great aroma and taste!
When this coffee is brewing the aroma goes throughout the entire house making the whole house smell yummy! Even non-coffee drinkers ( you mean there are some?!) comment on the rich aroma...and say they wish they DID drink coffee.
The taste is soooooooooooo smooth and luscious! The only thing better than drinking this coffee would be to be drinking it for free-ha!

This is my favorite coffee
This coffee has a great flavor, with the combination of chocolate and raspberry. It's sweet but not overpoweringly so. It smells delicious, as well. I was so disappointed when Gevalia stopped offering it for a while. I'm happy it's back because it is my favorite coffee.

So good I felt I needed a bowl and spoon. Very satisfying and decadent,

SMELL GOOD LOVE
I LOVE THIS COFFE, THE CHOCOLATE FLAVOR AND RASPBERRY NOTES MAKE THIS A WONDERFUL ANYTIME COFFEE. WHEN I BREW THIS BEND IT MAKES THE WHOE HOUSE SMELL WONDERFUL.

The BEST Chocolate Raspberrry
We have had Gevalia's Chocolate Raspberry delivered on regular basis FOR YEARS. It is the best we've tasted; smooth with a tiny taste of chocolate and raspberry. If you love coffee, chocolate and raspberries, then Gevalia is the brand for you!

Some flavored coffees are subtle and yummy, this one is not. It is chemical tasting and too strong, no matter how you make it. I did not enjoy it and won't buy it again.
September 7, 2013
Very fine body to this coffee with an excellent addition of the chocolate raspberry flavor, in fact going to add a decaf of this coffee to my order

Pick something else
I always drink my coffee black so I can savor the flavor. Not impressed with this one. When I opened the package there was no "special" aroma, and there was not even a hint of chocolate raspberry when brewing. Initially there was a slight taste of something, rather like a soap or perfume. UGH !
But to each his own; this one is not for me.

Try it Iced
Love it hot - and this one's a great choice for iced coffee. The slight tang of the raspberry is what does it.
I'm using a Chemex and brewing double strength, then adding just a touch of simple syrup (5 c. sugar boiled in 3 c. water ... plus a splash of corn syrup to prevent crystallization#, and cooling to room temperature before pouring over ice - the bigger the cubes the better #to avoid watering down the coffee while attaining maximum chill).

Tasty, smooth and enjoyable
Myself, my fiancee and my mother all love this variety. I do not care for most flavored coffees, but I do enjoy this one. Great aroma, nice mouth feel (I use a French press) and an all-around enjoyable brew.
The only thing that the three of us agree on is that we taste the chocolate and we taste a fruit there, but it doesn't seem to be obviously raspberry, like in the case of Gevalia's Raspberry Danish (also very good and with a more definable raspberry flavor). It almost tastes banana-like, albeit slightly. I have served this coffee to guests, also and they all seem to guess chocolate banana when asked. I can't explain it as I didn't see any other reviews that concur, but over one dozen people have said the same thing to me.
In the event this changes things, we use filtered water and take our coffee with sugar and half-and-half. We've never noticed any "banana-fication" of other coffees, flavored or otherwise, but I thought I'd mention it anyway. Regardless of what they call it, it's delicious!

Chocolate Raspberry coffee
I have received this coffee as part of my auto delivery for
quite awhile and I never tire of it. It is a treat every time I
make it and I love the smooth aroma, flavor, and taste.
I love this Gevalia coffee

Wheres the Blueberry Creme ????
We love Gevalia coffee but this Raspberry REPLACED I guess the Blueberry which was our FAVORITE.
If and when the blueberry cream shows up on Ebay we see it go for big money .This shows me that many of us miss it.
Please bring it back....if you do I will buy the first 100 boxes for myself ,family,and friends.
This Raspberry tastes like perfume to me and my guests were not pleased either.
WE WANT BLUEBERRY CREAM !!!!!!!!!!!

One of the best tasting chocolate coffees I have ever drank. Will definitely buy more.Donna

One of the few flavors I enjoy
I am something of a purist; I like my coffees unflavored, usually. Chocolate Raspberry is one of the few exceptions. A lot of chocolate flavored coffees have a bitter, fake-chocolate taste (I would say the same for most flavored teas.), but the accent here is on the raspberry. This is, for me, an indulgence--I couldn't drink it every day--but it is very good for those special times. Incidentally, my teenage boys love it!
March 8, 2013
When my favorite creamer was taken from the market (chocolate raspberry) I honestly didn't know how I would ever find that taste again in coffee. I experimented with making my own creamer and then I found this. This coffee well superseded my expectations. Its quality far exceeds the creamer idea and leaves you with a smooth taste that I'd never had with the creamer. I will definitely continue to purchase this blend!
