Antico Caffe Greco
GREAT, full coffee
I LOVED this coffee. I have tried several Gevalia varieties, and this one by far and away was my favorite. It was truly a full bodied, rich cup of coffee with no bitterness or sourness. If you like Starbucks, you will like this brew. It was wonderful. I don't know how the person who made it thought it was weak or thin or like tea. I made it with my Keurig and it was full and absolutely satisfying.

I recently have re-tried several of the Gevalia coffees and found that this is my favorite. This is a rich, full-bodied and most flavorful coffee. My next favorites would be the Cafe Sperl and the Creme Brulee. I highly recommend this coffee for those who love a rich coffee that bursts with flavor. The acidity appears to be low as I have never had a problem with it or all of the other Gevalia coffees I have tried. This would also make the perfect expresso and is never bitter.

Very disappointing coffee.
I bought about a dozen coffees from Gev to try some new flavors and look for some with good strength of character:
I hoped to find bold flavor, good solid bodied coffee, and feel like I had a great cup. This is supposed to bold and flavorful. Since it was "Caffe Greco" I figured that this would be it! Alas, what a disappointment. Bold = good tea water.
Even doubling up using twice the normal amount of coffee could not give this what it needs. If you make coffee to "sip tea with your girl friends" you will probably like this: it has some characteristics that remind of a mild columbian blend, but without the strength and boldness. I will add this to my "dump can" of Folgers mix, where I throw all the disappointing stuff for use in the shop at work.

My all-time favorite
This is my all-time favorite -- rich and dark yet smooth, with a great aroma. For me, it comes closest to the best coffee experiences I've had in cafes while traveling to Europe.

There is nothing more I can add to Mmmmmm!!! Both my husband and I really enjoyed this coffee and I saved the box so I know which one to order again...and again...and again.

Best coffee ever
I tried a lot of different brands and names but Antico Caffe Greco was best I've ever tried. Wonderful aroma, low acidity and taste you can feel for the rest of the day. Love it.

My favorite Gevalia coffee blend
With the possible exception of the Christmas Royal Vinter blend, this is my favorite Gevalia coffee. It has been delivered to my house periodically for sevral years now. I like both dark and light roasts of coffee but this combines both types -- a distinctive taste, but smooth.
