Pros:  Smooth mild flavor, no off flavors or bitterness.

Cons:  too mild in disinteresting for the cost.

The Bottom Line:  

a pedestrian coffee that will appease most people.


  Gevalia classifies this as a select varietal. They state on the website: The special blend of "Moka" Harar beans from Ethiopia and renowned aged Sumatra beans from Indonesia make an earthy coffee with a very full body and spicy nuances. I don't agree with this description.

I started with 6 scoops of coffee. I put it in my electric round grinder and ground it to a medium consistency. Then I put it in my French press and leave it for 4 minutes before plunging. I use bottled water because my tap water is highly chlorinated.

Smell
The aroma is very light a mild. There is a very very slight hint of sweetness of grain. No interesting aromas to speak of. No off flavors or anything bad.

Taste
The first taste is a mild taste of coffee. There is a slight acid to it, but nothing very strong. There's also nothing intricate or special about the taste. It taste like pedestrian coffee. The key here is there are no off flavors to it. So if you like you can call it perfect pedestrian coffee.

Aftertaste
There is no bitter aftertaste. The aftertaste has a mild grain-sweetness to it. Very mild.


For Gevalia coffee, it is pretty pedestian. There is nothing wrong with this cup (typical of Gevalia), it is perfect in the sense of it being coffee. But it lacks complexity and character. Not something I will order again due to the cost. If you like this coffee then try Zabars coffee's instead.
