Rated 5 out of 5 by decafnomore great smooth taste
great coffee! Excellent hint of vanilla, very smooth, relaxing taste. All of which is completely irrelevant, as this decaf flavor is being discontinued. Obviously Gelvia has decided to target regular coffee segment and exit decaf (flavored as well as virtually all whole bean and ground non-flavored varieties too).
It would be good business practice to maintain a small token decaf collection just to hold that small segment, who then recommend to others, who drink regular coffee etc...Who ever said business decisions are based on sound logic. Oh well. I know, I know- " we strive to maintain quality product, but unable to procure year round supply", etc... etc... etc....

This is THE coffee to just unwind with. It's got great flavor. It reminds me of relaxation. When you need that 20 minute break from work, kids, chores, etc. Sit down with a cup or two. Heck, if you got the time, drink the whole pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nuts4Vanilla Bad decision to discontinue French Vanilla
Best coffee ever so great decision, Gevalia, to discontinue. I thought I would settle for the vanilla nut only to read the reviews that it is also discontinued. I've been a customer for years and have tried almost all the flavors and none were to my liking. I'm definitely going elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nanapam Love that my husband will drink this flavored coffee!
My husband only started drinking coffee about 4 years ago. I had to drink alone, so I didn't make it. Now, because of Gevalia flavored coffees, we can make a pot of coffee every morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorisd28 MY FAVORITE!
This has been my favorite Gevalia coffee for years. Not an overwhelming vanilla flavor and that is what I like. My last order had a sticker on the top of the box saying you were discontinuing the DECAF FRENCH VANILLA. I hope this is not true! I will be very sad since I've been buying for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaVinciKittie Top notch roast! Just wish it weren't ground so finely...
I use a Keurig machine and transfer a scoop of grounds into a special re-usable K-cup. This coffee is so finely ground that I can't use my normal re-usable K-cup and have to switch it out for an entirely different setup that has more mesh on the sides for liquid flow. This only happens with coffees that are finely ground - typically I get the beans ground coursely (for a french press) and that works great. This is my ONLY complaint about this coffee, and its not unique to this flavor. The flavor itself is actually my favorite of all the ones I have in my collection at home (and I have a lot)!

ONE of the first coffee's I tasted when I was just 16yrs old..My mother use to serve it where she worked..i was instantly hooked on Gevalia, and ever since, I been buying it...I guess I inherited my good taste for Gevalia, from my Dear MUM...

Rated 4 out of 5 by ladyrae56 subtle vanilla flavor
I love the taste of the subtle vanilla plus nut flavors that blend so smoothly in a symphony of delicate sweetness. This reminds me when your mother's love manifested in sugar cookies with nuts. This coffee has a delightful flavor.

I can't taste or smell any aroma in this coffee. Also tried vanilla nut with same experience. Not buying again and having a hard time using it up. I like flavored coffee! My favorites are Amaretto and Irish Creme...

Rated 5 out of 5 by dottiedee Aroma wakes me every morning!
When I am filling my coffee canister, I hold the canister sideways and pour French Vanilla on one side, then I slant to the opposite side and pour Mocha. This way when I am scooping my coffee into the filter for brewing, I have half vanilla and half mocha. I add two teaspoons of creamer and one tsp of sweetener per cup. I do not like any coffee black. This cup of coffee is far better than all of our coffee houses here in St. Louis. All my friends and family look forward to having a cup of this wonderful tasting coffee. The only negative thing I can say is I can't stand to drink coffee that isn't made by Gevalia. I am so spoiled. Oh, also I love to mix vanilla and creme brulee, or creme brulee and mocha. Each and every cup is delicious. Sometimes I have mixed three different coffees. You can't go wrong because they are all so "good".

Rated 5 out of 5 by JavaJunky Delicious!
I thoroughly enjoyed this delicious coffee! It is non-acidic, full-bodied, and has a rich French Vanilla flavor that enhances, without overpowering, the coffee flavor. I always use non-fat milk, almond milk, or vanilla almond milk in my coffee, and they all work well with this flavor. My friends who take it black also enjoy it. I also like mixing this blend with other blends; for example: Cinnamon, Hazelnut, Winter Spice, Kona, and Dark Chocolate Truffle (tastes like Riesen Chocolates). Also, I always use decaffeinated coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluejeans67 Wow! good coffee
We have used the french vanilla coffee for years. It has such a full flavor and we enjoy every cup. Last year my husband was told by his Dr. to go to decaf in all drinks. We were concerned at the change. We were afraid we would loose the richness of the coffee we were used to. Wrong! We are delighted that we have the same wonderful taste we always had! When I serve it to guests, they don't even know it's decaf. They just comment on the good coffee. Thank you Gevalia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pastorpete mild good tasting coffee
I really like the French vanilla blend. It is a mild tasting coffee not sharp or bitter. It is easy on the morning stomach for that first wake up cup. It is a flavorful blend during the day as well. I would recommend this blend to any one who likes a mild but full flavor cup of coffee any time of the day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CoffieQuen Lacking Flavor and Aroma
I have purchased this flavor in the past and enjoyed it very much, the taste as well as the aroma. However with this recent purchase the taste was very poor and had no aroma. For amount of money you charge I would expect the product to superior to a supermarket brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sally529 Long time favorite!
I've had French Vanilla as a staple in my Gevalia order for years now and love it! I've had many compliments from family and friends whenever I serve this coffee (even from die-hard dark roast fans). There's something smooth and rich about this coffee with a hint of vanilla and little acidity. I keep trying others (mostly dark roasts) and always come back to this flavor as my everyday staple, as it never disappoints.

I usually just stick with cinnamon and pumpkin spice. But I tried this one and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I have to drink decafe (no fun) and I brew all my coffees just a little stronger. Wonderful taste of vanilla. Its very smooth too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mkane10 Very Bitter to me.
I love french vanilla, but this did not taste anything like it. It was very bidder. I had to put a lot of coffee creammer in it to get it down. It was very, very bitter. I ajusted coffee level foor times, and I did not like one cup of this coffee.
