New Review and Giveaway from MyBlogSpark: Gevalia Coffee!!!

Psst...  Please take the poll in my sidebar!  Pretty please.  :)


Gevalia Kaffe is much more than your average `cup of joe.´ It´s a Swedish-style break from the usual coffee grind. Perfected by the Swedes´ passion for quality coffee for more than 150 years, Gevalia is an exquisitely rich smooth coffee experience that is never bitter. Gevalia isn´t just coffee, it´s `Kaffe´ to savor.
As part of the MyBlogSpark blogger program, I was blessed to recieve two samples of Gevalia coffe and a nice coffee Gevalia mug!  And guess what?  You can get two samples and a mug too!  (BTW, when I say samples, these are not small bags.)  Directions for the contest appear at the bottom of this post. 

Okay, I must 'fess up, I won't actually be giving my own opinion, but a friend's.  You see, as you know, this is The Crazy House.  In The Crazy House things are broken on a regular basis.  Not long ago my youngest son, Baber, was putting the pot from my coffee maker in the kitchen and he dropped it and broke it.  Sooo....  I was unable to personally make this coffee at home.  So, I did the next best thing.  I took it to our homeschool co-op.

Well, since the coffee is made early, it was too late to make it this past week, so I couldn't taste it there, either.  So, I did the next, next best thing.  I offered up the second bag to the first person who would offer to test it out for me.  Here's where the beautiful and talented Pamela comes in.  Her dh is a coffee lover and she took it home for him to try.  Here are her exact words:

"We really enjoyed this coffee. I liked how the packaging was easy to open, something I rarely find in coffee bags. Aroma was excellent, of course, and the coffee itself tasted really good. I would definitely purchase it. The one thing I'd say is that the bag I tried was labeled "medium" roast, but it seemed much stronger than a typical medium blend to me. All in all great coffee though. I'll just use less from now on."

Wow, this girl knows what she is talking about, I didn't even know what medium roast meant!  LOL  I understand regular and decaf, and flavored and non-flavored.  I'm not exactly a barista.  But I did keep the mug.  I do like it!  :)

Now here is some info I got from MyBlogSpark to give you a little more info about the coffee.
Gevalia is a luxurious departure from the everyday, an escape from the routine cup of coffee. Whether it´s a morning ritual made just for you, or the finishing touch at a dinner party, it brings the taste of Swedish-style luxury into your home.

In Sweden, where the citizens drink more coffee than almost anywhere else in the world, Gevalia is their preferred brand.

In fact, Gevalia enjoys the honor of being an official coffee of the Swedish Royal Court.

Gevalia, now available at Safeway, brings unexpected Swedish-style luxury and rich, never bitter taste to the Safeway grocery aisle.

Gevalia has been refining the art of luxurious coffee since 1853 and has a deep history of finding and blending the finest Arabica coffee beans from locations around the world.

Gevalia is expertly made with carefully selected beans, ground extra fine, to produce a rich coffee experience.

Previously available online only, Gevalia is now offering its top-ten varieties in U.S. coffee supermarket aisles nationwide in 10 varieties, including roast and ground, whole bean, flavored and decaffeinated varieties:

Now, here are the different varieties available!

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:  A 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. Gevalia Vanilla 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.
