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!

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!

A Gevalia Prince
For those of you used to putting cocoa in your coffee, you've found the perfect product. This is the coffee that needs no cocoa. With a slight hint of raspberry in the background, it takes its place among the princes of Gevalia's products.

a really good and special cup of coffee
There is just the right mix of chocolate not overbearing. It's smooth not bitter.

The flavor of chocolate and raspberry seems to be missing.
Good coffee flavor but not special. Grind seems too fine.

No Whole Beans
When Gevalia decided not to allow you to purchase this in whole bean varieties, the quality went down drastically. It used to be an amazing flavor, now it is a humdrum flavor. I cancelled my subscription over it. Buy whole bean at the store, you'll be happier.

I have just come back to Gevalia and after making and receiving a big order to tide me over, I realized that I had added in a package of the Chocolate Raspberry. I don't know why. I don't even care for flavored coffee. I am enjoying my first cup and it is excellent! I am about to order more. This will be my dessert drink from now on.

This is poor coffee
I have never written a negative review but I just had to comment about this product. It is absolutely the worst cup of coffee I have ever tasted.

I had this flavor from our local grocery chain years ago and found it disgusting. I usually cannot stand chocolate flavored coffee, and certainly don't want raspberry flavor added to it. However, someone brought this to work and needing an afternoon shot of caffeine, I tried it. The flavor is beyond words to me. Having canceled my Gevalia account two years prior, I reopened it, just to order this coffee! For some reason, it does not taste grossly sweet, but just so smooth and with the right amount of flavor...it makes me feel like a Royal waking up every morning to have my Chocolate Raspberry coffee. After reopening my account with Gevalia, I find I never crave Starbuck's latte's anymore. This coffee is better and keeps me feeling perky on my morning drive! I actually look forward to getting out of bed thanks to this delicious coffee! Thanks Gevalia!

Made me a coffee drinker
I have to confess, I was never a big coffee drinker. I could never drink "black" coffee. But once I had traveled to Europe and had experienced how they drank coffee (cafe au lait, caffe latte) years ago, I knew I had my style. When I saw this flavor, I decided it was probably for me. Now I have it every day, brewed full strength, but with 1/3 cup of warmed skim milk (less than a minute in the microwave) and it's absolutely heavenly. I usually make 6 cups or so and put the rest in the fridge for iced coffee (or re-heat it; it holds up very well). This is not for those who do not like "sweet" flavors, I'm sure.

Undoubtedly my absolute favorite. Just enough balance of each flavor to create an amazing cup of coffee.

This is my favorite flavor so far. I joined Gevalia in September & have tried a few different varieties. The Chocolate Raspberry has the perfect blend of flavors & I especially love the sweet raspberry taste. I like my coffee sweet & light & this lends itself well to sugar & creamer.
