I liked this one a lot the first time I brewed it, but was less enthralled after that. Not that I don't like it -- it is a good varietal, with medium body and flavor -- but not as well as I like some of the other Gevalia coffees.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This coffee is not unique -- and in this case, that's a good thing. It is a fine example of French Roast, strong and dark, but not bitter. Also makes fine espresso and iced coffee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This unique varietal has the acidity common to African coffees, but has more of a Central American taste (e.g., Colombian). It's OK, but I probably won't buy it again, instead opting for a more typical African coffee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent coffee. Definitely European style -- strong, but not bitter. I enjoy brewing this one Austrian style, by adding some cinnamon to the grounds.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This coffee has interesting, earthy flavors. It is a bit weak for my tastes, however, so I have to use more coffee to make it enjoyable. Because it is a bit weaker, I think that it would be better in warm weather.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This coffee is indeed similar to what you get at its namesake in Rome. Unique and interesting coffee flavors; robust but with low acidity. It is easily one of my Gevalia favorites.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The coffee is indeed dark and smooth, but the taste isn't much better than bland. Better with breakfast than it is by itself. If you like dark roasts or unique coffee flavors, then avoid this one.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Antico Caffe Greco is this suitable for making esspresso

have a 15 bar machine that makes your espresso blend great usually make caps or lattes and some times want a stronger taste,will this be it? and what about french blend?or any others you might recommend.
I can't compare specifically to the espresso blend, but Antico Caffe Greco does make good espresso. This coffee is indeed similar to what you get at the namesake coffeehouse in Rome, where they serve it as espresso.
