Gevalia Kaffe Review and Giveaway

I'm a coffee lover, and I've passed that on to my kids already...they ask for "coffee milk" with breakfast! I was thrilled to get the chance to try new Gevalia Kaffe, thanks to Kraft and My Blog Spark. I was given two Gevalia products to try - the French Roast and the House Blend, along with this Gevalia mug.

I love robust and strong coffee, and I normally drink Bold or Extra Bold coffee from Starbucks. The Gavalia French Roast is their dark roast and the House Blend is a medium roast.

I started off trying the Gevalia French Roast, and I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. It was strong and robust, and while I made it a little stronger than I normally make my Starbucks coffee, it tasted excellent.

I tried the House Blend next, and this ended up being more like I expected. The flavor was mild (translation: a little weak), and I was mostly underwhelmed. 

The Verdict: The Gevalia Kaffe French Roast was a winner. I ask for bags of Starbucks for Christmas every year, so I don't buy a ton of coffee on my own. I would get this French Roast on my own; a much better grocery store option than some other coffees out there! I wouldn't buy the House Blend just because I like darker coffee, but I think it would be great for someone who prefers a more mild coffee. The bag of House Blend certainly won't go to waste in my house! I'll probably drink it when I want a cup of coffee before bed.

Win it!

  1. Oh, I too am a big fan of coffee. I probably drink waaaay too much. I like it with cream (half and half) and sugar. I always prefer Dunkin Donuts, but recently purchased a Kirkland type that is actually roasted by Starbucks and it is quite good too. It is less expensive than the bags of D and D at this time.

  2. Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I love a Hersheys Kiss with my coffee and I would love to thy their French Roast!

  3. I am a huge coffee drinker and have tried many varieties. I mostly drink it black, so dark and bold are usually just right. Occassionally I like to use some of the favored sugar free cream.Sometimes I drink coffee all day.

  4. Coffee, coffee, coffee. I miss you. I am pregnant right now and trying to skip the coffee most days. I'm counting down the days till I an have a giant mug of coffee with coconut creamer guilt free.

  5. I love my coffee with a dash of skim milk & Splenda.

  6. Oh, I LOVE my coffee! Hazelnut flavored creamer or black, depending on my mood - mellow or spunky! Can't have a morning without my coffee.

  7. I love to drink my coffee in my cinnamon Fiesta coffee cup. I use a few tablespoons of half and half and a dash of stevia. I am due with baby in a month and gagged at the smell of coffee until last month. Made some for DH one day and had to have some. Now I am drinking it about every other day again like before I was pregnant. One cup Can NOT hurt right? Moderation :) for this coffee addict!

    Thank You for the offer<3

  8. I love Gevalia. My favorite blends are Le Procope (which is very smooth but flavorful) and the Breakfast blend (which is strong but not too much). I haven't tried the French Roast in a long time--but would love to. I'll take it black, please. :) The House blend sounds like it would be a good all-around coffee, particularly for guests., who seem to prefer more mild varieties. Thanks for the chance to enter!

  9. I have to have sugar and flavored creamer.

  10. Coffee is a daily must for me. I drink it simply with some hazelnut creamer. If I have some money to splurge with, I enjoy the Godiva line of coffee. =)

  11. I do not drink coffee, but my husband does at work. I'm sure he would love to take this to work to have in the morning :) He drinks his coffee with milk and splenda. Thank you for the giveaway!

  15. I like the milder coffees - when my husband brews he adds cinnamon to the basket for a mild spicy flavor. I add creamer & sugar.
