Oh no... Bring it back!!!
I was a regular online customer of Gevalia for many years. In the last year, I had moved to Keurig (buying Gevalia in the grocery story - thank you). However, I found some Chocolate Raspberry in the cabinet, opened the box, and got absolutely hooked. Best coffee on the market. Smooth and gentle flavors. Just the right amount of berry and chocolate. Loved the aroma throughout the house while brewing or even making one cup in the Keurig. Looked forward to my coffee every morning. Now I come back to the site and discontinued!?!?!? Say it isn't so... Bring it back! Utilize Lean Manufacturing and make smaller batches to meet your demand. I see from the comments above, you have some lovers. I bet we'd all help you promote it. Ok, I'll stop begging.
Bring it back!!!

Love the taste and aroma
Delicious hot or iced! Other brands of chocolate raspberry I have tried had a chemical taste or the added 'flavors' overpower the coffee flavor. Gevalia is a great blend of three flavors.

Love raspberry flavors
You are discontinuing both of your raspberry flavors? Now there are no fresh summer flavors in your selection. I'm very, very disappointed about this. I don't know what I will do for coffee this summer.

I have been an auto delivery customer for about 10 years now, receiving chocolate raspberry each time as my favorite coffee. I recommend Gevalia to my friends and family based on this flavor and they all agree how yummy it is. Dark Chocolate Truffle does not compare as a substitute. Raspberry Danish was close and now you are taking that away too. PLEASE RECONSIDER THIS DECISION. There are so many coffee retailers now. Don't take away your best sellers from your loyal customers and make us look to other coffee companies. I'm just saying...

I was given a gift of another brand for three months and was almost happy to see it go so that I could get back to my Gevalia favorite. I have tried most all the other flavors over the many years as a customer and nothing is comparable to Chocolate Raspberry. No need to reply as I know what you are saying to all other customers and it won't make a difference; but just had to add that I too am disappointed.

Two of my favorite flavors combined into one great coffee
This coffee combines two of my favorite flavors into one delicious coffee. I order enough that I can bring some to work to share with my co-workers. They each have their own favorites and it's great to smell a fresh pot of chocolate, pecan, raspberry chocolate, etc. brewing when I have my first cup of the day.

Best one out there
Gevalia's choc rasp is WITHOUT DOUBT, the best one of this flavor I have tried, and there isn't very many companies that even make this flavor. I will be sad to see it go, if Gevalia continues it's decision to discontinue. :(

very dissappointed that you are discontinuing
I am so sad to hear you are discontinuing chocolate raspberrry. It is almost like an old friend. A great dessert coffee even without the dessert. One of the few decafs we enjoy. While I have always loved Gevalia quality, this is the coffee that kept me ordering at regular intervals. I can get good plain Gevalia in the stores now, which is great. But this is for treats and dinner parties and so nice. Everyone always says how good it is. Perhaps if you marketed it as an alternative to dessert you would sell more. It is not a breakfast drink but such a special treat after a long day, and such a nice ending to friends gathering, or when playing games. Please reconsider dropping this very favorite coffee.

Dont like raspberry
Don't like raspberry. Prefer chocolate or creamier coffees

Can't Believe It!
I can't believe you have discontinued this coffee. I have been drinking it since college. You are not even offering a substitute. I called 1-800-gevalia and the representative said that the only coffee close to it was a dark chocolate truffle and that was on back order. I can't imagine it being half as good. Please reconsider making the chocolate raspberry coffee again. The response on the Internet is in favor of this coffee, I can't imagine it is not a top seller.

Gevalia Doesn't Get It!!!!
So sad when you drop a very nice flavored coffee from your selections and the company doesn't care enough to listen to its customers, but rather re-posts the same canned reply over and over again! You don't get it.... there is NO OTHER FLAVOR that I want! Bring back the Chocolate Raspberry!

Going to Miss This
I loved the Chocolate Raspberry and usually kept it as one of my auto-delivery selections while rotating, the other flavors of Raspberry Danish, German Chocolate Cake, Creme Brulee, Irish Creme, Dark Chocolate Truffle, Vanilla Nut and Mocha, all of which have been discontinued. Why would I want to keep my auto shipment, or purchasing from Gevalia? Every flavored coffee, with the exception of one, that I have I have enjoyed getting from Gevalia has been discontinued. The reason I got my coffee from Gevalia was the fine selection of flavored coffees you had available. The only two flavors you have left are available from numerous other suppliers in every supermarket around. I have so enjoyed savoring the flavor of the Chocolate Raspberry and the other flavors and introducing them to my friends. Now all you offer are pat offers to introduce new flavors as substitues. What flavors? You've discontinued them all.

Chocolate Raspberry Coffee
I am sad to hear of you discontinuing the Chocolate Raspberry coffee. It was one of my most favorite ones you supplied. I hope you will get something remotely close to its flavor in the future. I wish I would have known it was going to be discontinued. I was never informed, because had I known, I would have bought many boxes on my last purchase!
March 22, 2014
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 :(
February 16, 2014
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.
February 2, 2014
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.
January 8, 2014
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.
