Rated 5 out of 5 by callmesy Love it or hate it evidently
I'm a black coffee drinker. I bought this coffee years ago, then got away from it for awhile; I think that is just human nature. The flavor is not over bearing, yet very distinct and pleasing to the palate. I admit that I used to scoff at flavored coffee, I wanted pure coffee and the flavored ones was just something that you drank once in awhile. Now however, I have developed a taste for fine flavored coffees and this one is a favorite. Gevalia, please continue to produce this coffee for the ones of us who love it. ;-) The rest of you, when you toss it out, toss it my way please!

I liked this. It was not overwhelming like many flavored coffees, It gave enough flavor to be enjoyable without givng a knockout punch. Will buy it again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kath23 BIG disappointment!!!!!
This is NOT what i expected at all! Its not a "german chocolate cake" taste"l!!!! Its not even close to a chocolate flavor. I do not think this is worth the money to try it! I LOVE coconut but there is not even a hint of that either like i have reviewed.... NOTHING about this kind is appealing to me. I DO NOT recommend this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by calliesmommy tastes more like coconut
I liked this coffee a little, but the more I drank it, the more I realized I was only tasting coconut. I was expecting more chocolate flavor. If you love coconut, you will love this. If you are expecting chocolatey coconut, I'm afraid it falls a bit flat. If you love chocolate try the dark chocolate truffle. It is amazing! No artificial chocolate taste. Its true chocolate flavor - awesome!

This coffee is sickly sweet and then has a bitter aftertaste. I gave thev rest of my order away and asked for opinions. Unanimous, no one liked it

Rated 5 out of 5 by laroquea Dessert in a Cup
I bought this based on the one reviewer who said they were using it as a dessert as they lost weight. I agree. It tastes just like German Chocolate cake to me! I have added some chocolate wine to it a few times, which doesn't help the calorie count, but might be an interesting addition if you want to have a treat after a nice dinner with guests. It's really good!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rebecca Interesting flavor...
Honestly, this tastes nothing like a German chocolate cake, but it's still good in a bizarre sort of way. You can definitely taste the coconut; however, there's no chocolate flavor whatsoever (I drink my coffee black, so I can easily pick up on any subtle flavors). It has a really odd coconut flavor that's at once off-putting and strangely delicious lol. It's certainly not my favorite, but it's still a decent cup that's definitely worth trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ida57 Excellent flavor blend of coffee and chocolate!
This is a wonderful brew filled with the flavor of chocolate, along with a touch of coconut, which enhances the flavor of the coffee beautifully. My husband likes it so much, he wants me to order two more boxes along with our monthly morning coffee. I highly recommend it for chocolate and coffee lovers, as well as those who like sweet coffee with their dessert.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Theresa did not like too much
did not taste or smell like chocolate or cake. It tasted like plain coffee with some weird taste to it. I can't even explain the flavor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lottie12 Normally outstanding! What Happened????
I must have a bad batch. I have 12 boxes and the smell and taste is not the same as previous years. This is my favorite coffee and I gave to friends to try. They did not understand why I was so excited about it. Embarrassing because I brag about this being the best coffee. Disappointed.

This coffee has a wonderful flavor that tastes as good as it smells. I have loved it from day one. I have been a Gevalia customer since 2003 and love just about every coffee they have to offer me but this one is my favorite.
It has a subtle coconutty flavor to go along with the chocolate that makes it a TURELY German chocolate cake coffee.The best I have tried. Thanks Gevalia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittlDuck Absolute Favorite of Gevalia's Coffees
Each year I can hardly wait for this coffee flavor to be brought back on line. It is the only reason I remain a member of the auto delivery system, I do not want to forget to order this delectible delight each year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joan416 Great flavor!
This is my absolute favorite of the flavored coffees. Since I'm trying to lose some weight, I drink this and it satisfies my need for dessert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LordR This one's "the Bomb"!
German Chocolate Cake is the only coffee of Gevalia's blends that I've tried to date that requires NO cream or milk, NO sugar and nothing else to "doctor" the coffee into tasting its best, although if you really want strong chocolate flavor, hot cocoa mix can be added without spoiling the coconut notes. As other reviewers have written, this coffee actually tastes like the cake it's named after. It's the best coffee I've ever tasted!

Maybe I just got a bad shipment, but this is THE WORST Gevalia coffee I have ever experienced. It smells and tastes like regular store bought coffee... Yuk!! I will never order this one ever again!

I thought it was too sweet and too chocolatte. But then I gave it a chance and can't wait for it to make a reappearance in my winter coffee orders.

Rated 5 out of 5 A more mature taste
This is one of my favourite Gevalia flavours. I think that some of the less positive reviews are written by people who like to have a little coffee with their cream. This is a full bodied, intense flavour and it sutis me perfectly. It seems very indulgent.

This coffee is one of my favorites of all the collections we receive. It tastes just like my favorite cake and is so warm and rich. My husband, who dislikes coconut, won't drink this one so you know it's just like the cake. Delicious!

When I saw the other reviews I was shocked and had to write one! This is actually my favorite Gevalia coffee. I LOVE it. I think the flavor is fantastic ... especially if you are a flavored coffee lover!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tclapper2 This is our favorite flavor!
This is our favorite flavor, except for blueberry cream, which is discontinued. Someone said that this smells like coconut sun tan lotion, so that's a good thing. I like coffee with a stronger sweet smell and taste. Most of the coffees aren't strong enough for my nose. If I am brewing blueberry cream, I want the coffee to smell and taste like blueberry cream, which is why I like German Chocolate Cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texascoffeelover The Best of the Chocolate Coffee
Chocolate and coconut, what could be a better combination?
You have to love flavored coffee to appreciate the delicious German Chocolate Cake flavor. Of all the flavored coffee, this one is our favorite. The taste is creamy chocolate with delicious coconut undertones. The first box did not last a week. We have been waiting for this coffee since January, we love the opportunity to order anytime! It is worth the wait, even if it is on backorder. That tells me I am not the only one that enjoys this coffee. Thank you Gevalia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NewberryClan Not a fan
I am not really a coconut fan but even the chocolate/coffee part seemed dull. Very disappointed. It was my first flavor from Gevalia that I did not like. They kept it and cancelled the Blueberry which was one of our favorites. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by bkorman1140 Tastes like coconut tan lotion smells
I belonged to a Gevalia Seasonal Club...and cancelled it when I received this product. I love Gevalia coffee..but this was definitely not for me. I took it to work and they made it and couldn't drink it either.
