I'm pretty vocal about my love of coffee, but that's usually limited to either a fancy barista beverage or at least a cup with a healthy pour of flavored creamer. Over the past few months, though, I've been trying to expand my coffee horizons by seeing what's new for having pure, straight coffee at home.
I recently had the opportunity to try out new Gevalia single-serve cups that are made to fit in my beloved Keurig machine.
From a bit of research at Gevalia.com, I learned that the Gevalia single serve cups come in 5 different varieties. When I bought my coffee at Walmart, however, there was only the Columbia variety on the shelf. I think that's a good thing for two reasons:
- Did you see all the varieties of single serve coffee cups available? I was slightly overwhelmed when I took a look at those shelves. Thank goodness Gevalia grabbed my attention right away with bright yellow box!
- I didn't have to make a choice. As long as a coffee isn't flavored with anything other than coffee, I'll drink it. Not having coffee-flavored varieties just made my shopping trip a bit faster.
Once I got home I popped one of those coffee cups with the bright yellow covers into the Keurig coffee maker and brewed a cup of coffee.
I took a moment to wrap my hands around the warm mug (it's one of my favorite parts of drinking coffee in the first place!), then took a sip.
Gevalia prides itself on the rich, never bitter taste of their coffee. While I knew this aspect of Gevalia, I still expected a hint of bitterness since I was drinking the Columbia variety.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that the taste was simply a full-bodied, dark coffee flavor. There wasn't any bitterness or dry aftertaste, and I drank about half the cup before I finally gave in and added some milk and sugar!
Gevalia has been around for a long time, and I know a few family members who will be excited to see one of their favorite traditional coffee brands now available in a single-serve cup!
Have you tried Gevalia single serve cups? What did you think?
In my quest for trying more traditional coffee blends, I'd love some advice: What other varieties of K-cups do you like?
