Rated 4 out of 5 by jcooke71188 Unique, but not my favorite.
Another solid product from Gevalia. If don't like a dark roast then I totally recommend this dark roast. It is dark but not bitter. I found out that I actually do like bitterness in my dark roast so I may not order this again but my wife who doesn't usually like a dark roast loved it. So give it a try.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FancyCoffeeMann Disappointed And confused
I'm still new to trying different flavors of coffee, but when drinking dark bold flavors I expect great and unique flavors this brand had nothing special to bring to the table. I will finish the bag that I have, but I would not recommend this flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexanders Our men's favorite coffee
I bought this for my husband for Valentine's Day and it is his favorite Gevalia so far. A smooth, bold flavor. We will definitely get this one again.

The first time I bought this coffee, I did so based on the site's description. I am often in the mood for a cup of good dark coffee, but the one drawback is that they can sometimes be bitter. Not so with this one. It's become one of my favorites, and, I always try to keep a box in my cupboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dwk138 Exquisite aroma and taste!
When I first opened Velvet Noir, I thought my wife would think it was too strong. She equates boldness of flavor with strength. Much to my surprise, when I made the coffee, she said "This is what coffee tastes like in the finest of restaurants. You should take some of this to K****'s to tell them what good coffee really is." A bold flavor and aroma, yet deliciously smooth, Velvet Noir is now our top favorite. My idea of the "perfect coffee!"
I also recommend Traditional, Dark Roast, Espresso Roast, Pecan Torte and Royal Vinter. Great tastes with choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by littlered This blend is rich and smooth. My favorite !
Drinking this blend is almost like enjoying dark chocolate. I put half and half in the cup also. Excellent taste, aroma, finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NickTX One of the smoothest dark roasts ever!
If you like dark roast flavor, but do not want the often bitter undertones or aftertaste, this is the right choice. Hands down the best dark roast I have ever had. The flavor is reminiscent of true Greek coffee, without the overwhelming gritty aftertaste or extreme sweetness. Awesome!

Very smooth coffee, great flavor and full body. I've tried both whole bean and ground. Same results with both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crystle Lives up to the name
I generally do not like dark roasted coffee... in fact Gevalia is the only brand who has dark roasts that I will drink.
When Velvet Noir came out, I immediately bought a box because it was the brand new, fan named flavor and I wanted to know if it lived up to it's new name. It so totally does. This is the smoothest dark coffee I have ever had, and just the smell of it when opened is pure heaven. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babetta A new find for me and now a new favorite!
I was looking for something stronger that mixes great with chocolate, this coffee really is smooth yet strong enough to mix with chocolate and both flavors come through & balance nicely.
This has become a new regular purchase for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jazzmin Nothing fancy here
I rate this coffee as a 2, on a 1-5 scale. I found the coffee on the bitter acid side. I'm also not a fan of dark roast, so that could be the reason. Adding my normal half and half didn't improve it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darla I love this coffee!
This is a really great coffee. I some times mix it 50/50 with decaf, and it still holds that rich, full flavor that I enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhon007 This one is special.
I had almost completely stopped buying Gelvalia coffee's; it was just too expensive for my taste:) But then I found this little gem among all the others and can't seem to resist it!
I try to keep a little around for those days when I need to feel pampered and have something a little special:)

We enjoy dark, bold coffee... this was good coffee, but for our taste it was thin and the beans were lighter and dryer than what we were looking for.

The Velvet Noir is by far the favorite coffee in my house. We make sure we get two boxes with each auto-ship order. It's strong without being overpowering and has a great flavor. I highly recommend this coffee!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kay56 An average coffee
This tasted bland to me. I like a dark roast most of the time, and this one just did not satisfy. Gevalia has many great tasting coffees, and many people like this one, but in my opinion, it is not as flavorful as the others.

Normally I am a dark roast woman, but this coffee was so wonderful. We received it as a special offer and I immediately fell in love with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cherokee This is now my favorite.
My husband and I have tried several selections of Gevalia coffee through the years. We have been die-hard lovers of the Traditional and the Breakfast Blend until I added Velvet Noir to our collection. It's full bodied flavor, distinct aroma and surprisingly smooth taste has me hooked. I bought ten on my very next shipment. My husband still loves our usual for daily comsumption (he drinks one to two pots of coffee daily), but for me, Velvet Noir is what I consider a fine cup of coffee. It's my personal favorite; "my time" coffee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheProfessor Only OK
The coffee is indeed dark and smooth, but the taste isn't much better than bland. Better with breakfast than it is by itself. If you like dark roasts or unique coffee flavors, then avoid this one.

I had been looking for a rich, smooth, full-bodied coffee for awhile when I tried Velvet Noir. It is excellent and we now have it sent on a regular basis.
