Rated 5 out of 5 by netrap51 superb blend
I do love this brand but, I had a batch that did not have the fresh smooth taste I usually do, but when I do get the right ones it's the best cup of coffee you could ever have. the smooth taste is superb. ya'll should keep enough on hand, for supply and demand you been out for awhile now. the ones in the retail are not vacuum packed so they lose the quality, Gevalia delivers and I thank the company for that. It's that first cup of smooth flavor in the morning and it can't be recreated, by any of the other brands of coffee out there. you have at least one very satisfied customer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leaving Just right
To put it simply, this coffee is about as good as it gets. It has the right balance of flavor, aroma, & taste. Always eager to begin my day with these beans!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cayote Nice taste and aroma
I brew the traditional roast, medium roast coffee on my stove top with an old percolator. I grind the whole beans. A Swedish friend gave us some as a gift and we're glad she did as we love the taste and smoothness. It's not oily either which is a big plus as it's easier to brew. The price is very fair for this quality product.

I've enjoyed the ground version in the past. Tried the whole beans and used a medium-fine grind, and the same water, temp, equipment, and method I use for the pre-ground. Butthe fresh-ground tasted decidedly different and not as good. I varied the grind and the amount of coffee in subsequent batches, but it never tasted the same as the pre-ground.
I have never had any whole bean coffee not taste as good a preground before.
Definitely NOT worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karanna My favorite unflavored coffee
I use whole bean so that I can use a grind of 8 so I can use my brew and save cups in my keurig. If I buy already ground coffee from Gevalia, it is so finely ground it will not work. I love traditional better than breakfast blend. I was surprised, but this is great stuff.

I have been a faithful consumer of Gevalia Coffee for many years. The taste is great and most important to me is that it is not bitter. Very smooth. My guests often comment on the coffee giving me credit for a great brewer of good coffee. I give no credit to myself, but direct them to Gevalia. My sister and my niece are now customers especially since they can now purchase it from local grocery stores, e. g. Byerlys and Cub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoJoe Thought it was hype...I was so wrong.
My co-workers were talking about this special coffee they order. I was standing near by and asked what they were talking about. Obviously; they were talking about Gevalia. They talked about it so highly that I was at first thinking they are just doing "group-think" and agreeing that it was better then regular coffee. However, being the coffee lover I am, I decided to order and make sure this was just hype. I ordered the Traditional as suggested by my friends. As soon as it came in I went home that evening and brewed me a pot. I usually put creamer and a sweetener in my coffee but I decided I wanted to see what this coffee was like without any "help". I could not believe how smooth this coffee was and yet maintained it a fresh bold flavor (this is not a "bold" coffee, I say that due to the fact it was so smooth yet so flavorful). Look, I went into this to disprove what my friend were saying so I could debunk their "hype" at work. The next morning I made the normal coffee I have been drinking for years, and before I put nay "help" in it, I decided to try it to see if I could really tell the difference. Oh my.....that's all I can say....Oh my. Needless to say, my friends were correct and I am a Gevalia customer for life. I drink Gevalia coffee black....you just don't spoil flavor like that with any additives.
