For purists who think they don't like "flavored" coffee, Pecan Torte is a revelation. I hate to gush and swoon, but this coffee is perfect, from its buttery hints, to its nutty aroma, to its pure coffee flavor!

Perfect with a bit of cocoa
This is a mighty good coffee on its own, but I've found that it's absolutely amazing as a mocha. I've brewed it as an espresso shot and made a (nearly# true mocha out of it and I've also brewed it as a pot of coffee and just added some mocha sauce, creamer, and sugar #which I call a "mochaccino americano" for fun#. Both ways were outstanding. I usually have a large cup of coffee before I leave for work and a large cup of coffee that I sip on all day long. That's not possible with a Pecan Torte mocha -- it's gone before 'second breakfast'! This is definitely my favorite Gevalia coffee so far.

I am "nuts" about Pecan Torte
Have been ordering Gevalia for about 2 years now. I was sold when after purchasing and I went back to an old brand, realized quickly that the old brand was so bitter. Easy choice to go back especially with the selection, pricing and those choice opportunities to order $5 boxes on occasion.
Pecan Torte.. my absolute favorite. The fragrance while brewing and the taste is a great nut like balance of dark and light. In my opinion, perfect. I pretty much could just order that flavor choice repeatedly but I still venture out trying new flavors and having some second "favorites". I strongly recommend the Pecan Torte

My husband loves it, therefore I do :)
My coworker/supervisor recommended Gevalia coffee to me and my other coworkers and would give us some of her auto delivery purchases to try. She kept raving about how this flavor in particular is her favorite. My other coworkers would brew it when she's not there, and it wasn't good because he would just dump an x-amount to brew a pot though the aroma was sooo inviting. When I brew it I take care in measurements and the quantity, so it comes out SUPER DELICIOUS. My husband is a big fan of Hazelnut coffee of any brand but he says this beats the Hazelnut flavor and Gevalia's flavor is never bitter (if you follow the directions in brewing it :p) Besides with organic cream and raw sugar (turbinado), we add just Carnation Sweet Condensed milk for a treat. It goes great with this flavor too. Thanks Gevalia!

not my taste although I love everything with pecan
I am not a big fan of flavored coffees so my view is somewhat biased already. My fiancee loves flavored coffees so we gave it a try. There was some bitter taste in there and it could have been vanilla flavored as far as I know, nothing pecan about it (I love pecan!).
I usually do not put sugar in my coffee but this was not drinkable without sugar and cream for some reason. It is not really coffee you are getting so I think that it might be better if you get a good coffee (not so light roasted either) and got a flavored creamer.

Smells and tastes like heaven
This is probably my favorite Gevalia coffee. The taste and smell are just perfect. I'm not really into flavored coffees normally but this one is very special.

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!!
Pecan Torte is by FAR my favorite Gevalia coffee!!!! If you're not into flavored coffees it may not be for you but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the sweetness of this coffee and I pair it with International Delight's butter pecan creamer (no sugar). All I can say is YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!!!

Love the taste, aroma, everything about it. I'm happy you offer this year-round now. Tastes exactly like caramel pecan!

For the Sweet Tooth in You
I have been a Gevalia coffee drinker for over a decade. I tried many of their flavored coffees and this so far to me is THE BEST. If you like a sweet, nutty coffee, this is the one. I like this so much I tend to buy this over any other. The nutty aroma is strong and is true to the name.

to sweet smelling for me

It’s not for me.
I’ve read many good reviews of this coffee, so I went ahead and ordered. The aroma was wonderful, but did not like the taste at all… It tasted like dirt on the ground to me. Maybe it’s because the strong aroma overwhelmed this light roasted coffee and made strange flavor? Many people seem to love this coffee, so I could be the weird one…
October 18, 2012
the taste is too sweet for my taste. I expected a more nutty flavor.

Our coffeepot recently died, so I ordered the free Gevalia pot and 4 bags of the Pecan Torte. We were already buying another company's Pecan flavored coffee, and this is our favorite flavor, so we thought we'd try yours. We love it!
We're actually happy that our old coffeepot died, so we had the opportunity to find your coffees. Thank you!

This is best tasting.
This is absolutely my favorite coffee. I like to add a little Southern Butter Pecan creamer.
October 17, 2012
Most Favorite Flavor
I've tried several of the Gevalia coffees and this one by far is the best. I purchased the decaf and once I run out I will for sure re-order this flavor.
After it has been brewed, you don't need too much to add into your cup to have that "pecan torte" taste. I like my coffee with a little bit of sweetener, so as to bring out a subtle flavor and the flavor in this one is grand. If you're looking for something different to try and something unique, I recommend Pecan Torte for you and your friends.

It was ok.
I thought this would be something different from the usual hazelnut which I don't particularly love but it wasn't. I also discovered that I particularly hated drinking this coffee iced. After a while it just becomes sickening. Probably a personal preference.

OMG this is our favorite coffee ever! Whoever makes the coffee in the morning the other one tries to guess what it is. Can't fool anyone on Pecan Torte. We entertain a lot. People go wild over it. That's my only complaint - I have to constantly refill the carafts at parties. Some VIP's were at my booksigning and they raved and raved over it. I first experienced it when it was a limited edition. I stocked my freezer because I was afraid they would discontinue it. I'm so glad it's available anytime now. Oh yum!!!

Absolute Favorite Coffee
I got this coffee when i ordered my coffee pot. im actually not a huge coffee drinker in general and am more of a sweet coffee drinker. I figured I might like this. I absolutely love this coffee. It is by far my favorite even over starbucks or the local coffee shop. It smells fantastic and tastes even better. I've been making it every morning since I received it. Add a little carmel machiatto creamer and a dash of sugar and OMG! FANTASTIC! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COFFEE!

This coffee is great. It has such a nice buttery caramel flavor. It is only second to one other coffee, my favorite of
all time, Creme Brulee.

I took this to the office and we all love it, the whole area smells like pancakes for hours. I typically don't like flavored coffee and only drink black coffee, but I must say this is delicious black or with cream and sugar. I do mix it half and half with regular coffee and haven't tried it at full strength yet.

Aroma & Flavor - Excellent!
I tried this coffee as a part of a seasonal coffee selection, and this one is the only one that I ever really wanted. I am happy that I can order it separately, and at any time. This coffee is a "wake-me-up" coffee that never disappoints. If you like flavored coffees, you will really like this one!

Pecan Torte is the best by far
We have become flavored coffee drinkers because of the pecan torte. We use to just treat ourselves on Sunday mornings, but it was too good to wait so long. Now everyday my husband mixes equal parts of regular coffee and pecan torte. We absolutely love it! The nutty flavor is perfect and not overwhelming when mixed.

Could not drink
I have had many flavored coffees, but I could not drink this one. It was bitter and had an odd taste.
April 8, 2012
Not for me
After reading the reviews, I ordered not one, but three bags, I really do not care for the flavor, it has a whang to it that i can't describe.

Are you baking?
Are you baking? No, just brewing!!!
I've not been much on flavored coffee, but the diet I'm on will not allow sweets of any kind. So, in order to suffice that area of my diet, I decided to venture out and try the Pecan Torte. Wow! Oh, Wow! With a little bit of sweetener substitute, I've found my "cake"! Now I can have my treat in form of liquid without all the carbs, calories, & sugar!

Best Coffee Ever!
I have never tasted a coffee this good in my life. I drink all coffee black so I know a good cup of coffee! Pican Torte is the best! I wish they would start selling it in the store.

OMGosh........this is, by far ~ one of the most incredible coffee's I have ever tasted in my entire life. Cannot get enough!!
This is, by far, one of the most incredible coffee's I have ever tasted and sipped in my entire life. I had an outdoor fall BBQ and I brewed this coffee outdoors. Even those who DID NOT DRINK COFFEE ~ when this coffee permeated the air ~ they came to taste. It changed their minds about drinking coffee. When this brews ~ it fills the house with such an incredible flavor...the light flavor ~ the nutty taste and natural sweetness is so wonderful. I use to have to purchase this during spring season only..and I would purchase it at 7-10 at a time just so I could have it through the rest of the year. Now ~ I am thrilled out of my mind that I can purchase this year around. Yippee-skippee!!!

It tastes just like a pecan torte. I've found to get the best taste for me, I use a 1/2 scoop less than normal and set my coffee brew selection to "strong", as I have that option. It saves me a little extra coffee and the taste of the pecan torte is easier to detect. It's now my flavored coffee of choice in my monthly shipment.
February 5, 2012
I love this coffee! I usually doctor my coffee with a lot of creamers and sugars, but with this coffee, I can drink it with just a little sugar! It has the best flavor and I love to make it because it makes the entire house smell amazing! I took it to work with me and that's why I'm on the site now, because my boss had me look it up online to order some because he has been all over town looking for some!

Best of the bunch!
This coffee is better than any of the other Gevalia coffees I have tried. In fact the best of any coffee I've had. Look forward to the Spring but wish I could get it year round.
