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.

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.

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.

Rich and Smooth
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.

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.

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.

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!

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