Gevalia Tasting Notes
You will want to read our Tasting Notes before subscribing to the Gevalia Coffee Club!
The Swedes sure know how to make a killer coffee.

So, I was thrilled to give Gevalia’s club a whirl.

Gevalia is as rich in history as they are in coffees. From teas to lattes to whole bean single-origin coffees, they have an extensive selection.

While their club is more of an auto delivery, it puts you in the driver’s seat. You pick what coffee you want, how much, and how often. You’re in complete control — and you can always swap out your choices later.

What Coffee Did I Receive?

Gevalia Box


My two coffees arrived in a Gevalia box.

They set up their coffees in the box so that they are jostled around. There’s nothing special about the packaging; instead, it’s just two bags of coffee in the box.

You don’t receive tasting notes or information with your coffee either. The bags don’t have tasting notes like other companies — so if you’re not a pro at coffee tasting, you might not know what notes you’re getting.

The Coffees we Picked


I received two bags of ground Gevalia coffee: Gevalia’s Special Reserve Rainforest and Special Reserve Toraja.

So, How Did It Taste?

Gevalia Toraja Coffee

The Special Reserve Toraja is a single-origin coffee from Indonesia. The notes online said it was a dark roast, full flavor, with a lively acidic flavor.

The coffee was way too bitter. To be perfectly honest, the aftertaste was so disgusting that it took gargling mouthwash and eating a banana to get the taste out of my mouth. It was one of the worse coffees I’ve ever drank.

Gevalia RainForest Coffee

The Rainforest Organic is supposed to be rich, aromatic, with pleasing floral notes.

The Special Reserve Rainforest coffee was also bitter, but at least bearable. It didn’t have the same disgusting aftertaste or bitterness, but it still had enough bitterness to turn me off. I didn’t catch many floral notes from the coffee itself, but it was definitely rich.

Would I Drink It Again?

Probably not. Neither of the two coffees are something I would repeat. I wasn’t impressed with the flavor.

Would I Recommend Gevalia Coffee?

Gevalia is a great brand.

I’ve had other Gevalia coffees in the past and they were great, this was just a bad experience.

Gevalia’s auto delivery does have a few flaws, but if you want to handpick your own coffees and have them delivered to your door each month, you’ll appreciate what Gevalia has to offer.
