If a coffee could be perfect, this is the one. The blend is so perfect, I look forward to my coffee in the morning. I have friends that "drop by" and ask if coffee is on. Needless to say, I always make a pot.

Royal Vinter is like drinking pure luxury in coffee form! It is a rich, warm flavor... not at all "just coffee", this is the Rolls Royce of coffee!! I like to dress it up with a bit of cream & sweetener (either raw sugar or equal, no aftertaste to spoil this perfect flavor!!!!) The spice is also nice as the added spices do not over power the original flavor. :-)

Best Flavor and Aroma
This has to be the best coffee I have ever tasted. I have been around the world and have had many types and flavors. The Royal Vinter is by far the Best Ever.

Friends don't let friends drink flavored coffees!!! LOL.
Royal Vinter: hmmmm. Simply the best combination of fine beans from around the world to achieve the best possible combination of body and aroma, with low acidity. Gevalia rates this one as 4/5 on Intensity. 4/5 on Body and 3/5 on Acidity. It's truly a unique blend & eventhough Gevalia describes this as 'spicy', I didn't feel it to be overwhelming. I guess definition of spice/spicey varies from individual to individual. In my opinion, there's probably nothing I would add nor subtract from the overall taste/aroma of this blend. It is as close to perfection as the best cup of coffee can get.
I take my coffee french pressed with coffee mate & sugar. For those times when I feel over-indulgent, I take with Half & Half, but only when coffees tend to be a little stronger.
This is by far the best bang for the buck when it comes to gourmet coffees though you can get coffees from Gevalia for as much as $80/pound.
This Royal Vinter may seem over-priced when compared to grocery store blends. However, this is one of the finest coffee names in the whole world - good enough to be appointed to his majesty the King of Sweden. In actuality, you can spend $7 easily in Starbux and get one serving. This in comparision is a great value considering you get over 30 servings for an 8 ounce brick #7grams for rounded Tablespoon/6oz Water# of Gevalia coffee. From one coffee lover to the next, cheers!

A Very Special Blend
I have enjoyed Royal Vinter since the first time I received it from Gevalia several years ago. I am very particular about my coffee and I drink my coffee black to taste the flavor. I enjoy this special blend of flavors --- bold yet just the right touch of spice. This is the perfect coffee for the holidays (or anytime for that matter) and it is wonderful gift for coffee lovers!

The absolute BEST
This is, by far, the best coffee I have ever had. I am very particular (that is why I buy Gevalia to begin with!), so trust me when I say "you will NOT be disappointed!"

Best in class
I don't have the discriminating palate to describe the taste, but I know what I like. Of all the flavors of Gevalia coffee I've tried, the Royal Vinter (haven't tried the spiced version yet) is my favorite. The taste is not overwhelming like most of the "flavoured" types, but it's just bold enough to make the morning ritual a little special.

This is easily one of my favorite blends I have ever had from Gevalia or any other roaster. I love the just right amount of intensity, boldness and light to medium bitterness of this blend. The hint of spiceness tops this off to make it a excellent blend for the Winter months or anytime for me. I prefer my coffee dark, ibold & intense but not bitter or burnt like Southern European roast. I have it with just enough milk or half n half to be dark brown and sugar to bring out the sweetness of the subtill hidden flavors of the pacticular roasts.

a little spicy but rich
if you like the spicy taste of cinniamon you should give this coffee a try . a little much for my taste but if you have strong taste buds you will love the bold taste of cinniamon and caramel.
