It's not too overbearing with the amaretto taste as some flavored coffees can be (Irish Cream is not good). I am able to recommend nor not -recommend it as taste is such a subjective, personal thing, no one can honestly advise what will taste bad or good unless it's superb or horrible, of which it is neither. That said, I would not order it again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am going to try to return this. Of all the coffees I've tried over the years, this is terrible, I cannot explain it other than the taste is 'off' and it has an after taste that is not pleasant
No, I do not recommend this product.

I love the Royal Vinter coffees. I get excited when I receive my annual Royal Vinter post card that it's on it's way. I then order extra's of all three. As a gift,it's a nice gift if a tad overpriced. Make sure the receivee loves coffee otherwise it may be a bit bold for your average drinker.
Yes, I recommend this product.

If you're not extremely careful about audibly snapping the lid shut the basket overflows. It also cannot be used as a pause and brew ever: both scenerios ruin the keeps hot plate. the lid doesn't fit the caraffe well either and dribbling onto the counter while pouring should be expected.
No, I do not recommend this product.

In the minority but I found this blend to be sickeningly sweet. It tasted like a mouth of carmel smothered in cream. Hey- where's the coffee ?
No, I do not recommend this product.

I like this coffee, which I 'discovered' last Christmas Season, so much that I gave it away as a gift#s# last Christmas, keeping a good sized stash here for out house. Bearing in mind that taste is very subjective, I find it to be one of the best flavored coffees out there. I've drunk so much of it I'm becoming just a smidge bored with it - but I know that This too shall pass. It's sweet but not overwhelmingly, medium blend with no after taste . Mostly drink it as a perfect wake me up in AMs but have also found it to be a pleasant evening, after a meal coffee. Being that I don't like sweeteners in my coffee Peacan Torte is a great balance of coffee and a nutty hint, could easily accompany desert without overwhelming it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the Toraja and buy a lot of it when it's available. Toraja and Harrarr which twas disappointingly discontinued, are staples here, my very favorites. I am not able to articulate why , exacatly but : it's spice ish, sweet is, nutty ish, nothing overwhelming yet something about it is magic to these taste buds. I tell people about it and where I'd discovered it and currently buy it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought a whole bunch of these when I realized Gevalia was offering it. I should have tried it first. It's good, I like it and drink it regularly (because I bought 12 of them....) but I've had better Pumpkin Spice coffees elsewhere. Considering the price , I'll buy it elsewhere for 1/2 the price. .
Yes, I recommend this product.

It's a nice blend. It's your average, typical blended commercial coffee. Slightly more bold than I prefer but I'll drink it . And if they give it away I'd surely drink it haha. I don't typically purchase it from Gevalia because the blend is similar to any commercial blend you can find in the gormet section of any TJ Max @ 1/2 the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had all kinds of Blue Mountain Jamaican coffee and was surprised to be disappointed in Gevalia's version of it. As a coffee I find Jamaican Blue Mountain in general - boring. Gevalia's version is just a bit more bold, making it boringly bold and way overpriced.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Cinnamon Coffee
By TamifromBranson from Branson, MO, USA
This is the ONLY coffee I will drink. I'm so depressed over your choice to discontinue this product. There are numerous reviews posted that love the Cinnamon Coffee; which creates concern for your decision & choice to discontinue it.
Are you able to offer a alternative flavor? Please reconsider your choice and listen to your customers.
Thank you!

Once again...
Posted March 26, 2014
Gevala has discontinued another staple & favorite coffee and this will be my 3rd disappointment. Suggestion: because so *many* customers have protested the change, why not suggest a replacement flavor here on the site ? A much better solution than requiring us to contact the call-center, which as you surely must be aware, most of us will not bother

Is Gevelia Coffee organic?

It depends upon what you mean by organic which has become a grossly overused generic phrase meaning it's grown from the earth. It doesn't necessairly mean it's grown without use of pesticides.
