Toasted wine aroma, dark, rich flavor with a faint caramel creaminess, very smooth wine finish.
Of Gevalia’s European Coffeehouse Collection (Café Sperl®, Antico Caffe Greco, Café le Procope®), Café de Oriente® is my favorite. The winey notes truly set this blend apart.
Yes, I recommend this product.

DJS1's Answers
 

measurements & capacity please

What are the measurements of these containers and what is their capacity? Do they come in various colors or only one exhibited?
Large container measures: 7 1/2 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches wide (with lid), holds 6 cups (liquid measure) (minus lid).

Small container measures: 6 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches wide (with lid), holds 4 1/2 cups (liquid measure) (minus lid).

I've purchased 3 sets and they've always been coffee colored.

Does "2 piece" mean one canister with lid and body, or is it two canisters?

It is two canisters, each with lid and body. One short, one tall.

What is the shelf life unopened?

Since Gevalia vacuum packs its coffee...

Coffee beans Room temperature 4 weeks 16 months
Coffee beans Freezer 6-9 months 2-3 years

If unopened and stored in a cool, dark and dry space you should be able to improve the shelve life.
