Gevalia Kaffe Review

Gevalia Kaffe Review

Coffee seems to be a way of life lately. It seems like there is a coffee shop on every corner. I do not usually drink coffee, but since I gave tea up for Lent I have been drinking coffee from time to time. I have tried the coffees from a few chain stores and most of it tastes bitter to me. I have tried several blends and varieties and when I got the opportunity to try Gevalia Kaffe I jumped right on it.

Gevalia has been making coffee since 1853. It is the brand of choice in its native Sweden and is also the official coffee of the Swedish Royal Court. Gevalia prides itself on being rich and smooth.  The smoothness of Gevalia is evident before you even take one drink. The coffee is finely ground and it smells terrific.

Gevalia isn’t kidding when they say their coffee is never bitter. The first thing I noticed about the flavor of Gevalia was how easy it is to drink. It was not bitter and it was exceptionally smooth. I sampled two flavors, the House Blend and the French Roast. While both flavors were good, I especially enjoyed the French Roast.

Gevalia Kaffe was previously only available for purchase online but it can now be purchased off the shelf at Safeway. There are 10 varieties available to consumers:

  • Gevalia Traditional Roast (ground and whole bean):
    Gevalia Traditional Roast provides a perfectly balanced taste every time. Our most beloved blend – made of choice, mountain-grown Arabica beans – this coffee has a distinctive body and flavor with a lighter intensity. (Medium Roast).
  • Gevalia House Blend:
    Gevalia favorite, House Blend is a robust yet never bitter coffee. This roast has a captivating aroma that is only matched by its exceptional flavor. (Medium/Dark Roast).
  • Gevalia House Blend Decaf :
    Delivering the same rich, never bitter flavor, House Blend Decaf has the same robust taste without all the caffeine. (Medium/Dark Roast).
  • Gevalia French Roast (ground and whole bean):
    Gevalia French Roast is a coffee of impressive richness and dimension, expertly crafted from prized Arabica beans grown in Colombia and Brazil. Hints of aromatic smoke give this dark-roasted French Roast blend an intense, yet uniquely satisfying flavor. (Dark Roast).
  • Gevalia Colombia:
    Grown high in the Colombian Andes, these beans produce a rich, bright and well-bodied Colombian coffee. This single origin classic is world-renowned, which is why we have sourced these beans for decades. (Medium Roast).
  • Gevalia Espresso Roast:
    Gevalia Espresso Roast is made of premium, mountain-grown Arabica beans from East Africa and Central and South America. This roast is bold and full-bodied with a hint of caramel undertones. (Dark Roast).
  • Gevalia Vanilla:
    This rich blend with vanilla flavor notes is crafted from choice mountain-grown Arabica beans, then roasted for exceptional body and flavor. GevaliaVanilla is a flavorful and balanced experience with a heavenly aroma.
  • Gevalia Chocolate Mocha:
    Gevalia Chocolate Mocha allows you to indulge your passion for decadent flavor. Rich, velvety chocolate flavor is blended with mountain-grown Arabica beans for a sweetly satisfying experience.
