Bold and smooth
This is an invigorating coffee, bold and smooth with no bitterness. I am considering making it a regular shipment coffee.

This is a full bodied, strong coffee. Delicious without the bite that usually accompanies the dark roasted beans.

Wonderful taste and aroma
This is easily my new favorite! There is a spice-like aroma from the brewing coffee and the coffee is rich, and full with a lightness from the low acidity. Wonderful flavor without cream or sugar, it is a refreshing cup at any time of the day.

This is now one of my favorites. I cannot adequately describe the great flavor except to say it is unique. It is bold but not overwhelming, and of course has wonderful aroma. Better yet, it tastes as good as it smells. Pleasing to wake up with.

Well balanced, smooth
I am on a very limited income so I tend to try whatever's on sale. Lately they've been kind enough to offer several very nice coffees for me to try.
This coffee doesn't grab you and say how great it it, it just grows on you as you sip. A good strength, with hints of bitterness, spice, nuttiness and sweetness, nothing overwhelming. A nice coffee for late afternoon pick-me-ups and when I want a treat.

Toraja an Indonesian delight
This delicious Indonesian coffee is a must for coffee lovers. I have a sensitive stomach, fortunately Gevalia's intensity/body/acidity chart is very accurate, it allows me to enjoy an array of delicious delights and Toraja is right up at the top as one of my favorites. It's delicious, the aroma grabs you (not to tight) and the taste, ah the taste tantalizes your taste buds. Coffee like this is what makes me keep coming back to Gevalia.

The best I've had so far.
This is simply one of the best all around coffees I've ever had the pleasure to experience. The flavor is unique and never bitter for a reasonably potent dark roast. It is smooth and aromatic on the palate all the way through and still tastes great even if it's gotten cold. It has all of the hallmarks of an excellent boutique quality coffee for less than ten dollars a bag and I genuinely look forward to it other than a simple matter of caffeinating in the morning to get going.
