Starting My Day with the Quality and Taste of Gevalia Single Serve Cups of Coffee {#CupOfKaffe}

While I kid that I'm addicted to finding a good bargain or ending my day by watching a rerun or two of Friends, it has been proven more than once that I am truly addicted to coffee.

What was once a I just enjoy a cup to start my day has fully evolved into a mix of Why are you talking to me before I've had my coffee? and Caffeine withdrawal headache, ack! on days that I don't have it.

Addiction, plain and simple.

But even though my husband thinks that I should just quit cold turkey (the madness at the suggestion!), I prefer to instead indulge my addiction with coffee that can provide outstanding quality and taste. Forget giving it up when I can bring a smile to my own face every day with a cup of premium Gevalia single serve coffee!

Gevalia K-cups

Since 1853, Gevalia has upheld the uncompromising standards put forth by their founder, Victor Theodor Engwall. Opening his business in the small seaside town of Gävle, Sweden, Engwall aspired to import nothing less than the world's finest beans. Coffee aficionados soon learned that if you wanted good coffee, you bought it from Victor. Business grew quickly, and Gevalia became the official coffee purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden.

Today, Gevalia continues to buy the best beans in the world and handcraft a product inspired by traditional cast-iron roasting. From intense dark roasts to exotic varietals, Gevalia offers over 40 premium coffees that have a distinctively rich, smooth taste that's never bitter and is still served by the Royal Court of Sweden.

While I wouldn't quite compare my kitchen to the Royal Court of Sweden, that doesn't mean that I can't enjoy the outstanding quality and taste of Gevalia as well, right? Happy to see that Gevalia single-serve coffee is available in K-cups for my Keurig brewer, I was excited to head to my nearest Walmart to bring home a box to enjoy.

After my excitement over finding the Signature Blend and Colombia flavors of Gevalia coffee for use in the Keurig K-Cup Brewer (there is also a new Gevalia Dark Royal Roast on the market), I brought both boxes home and couldn't wait until the following morning to dig right in.

But, wait. How to decide which one?

While both varieties sounded good, my lack of decision-making skills (particularly first thing in the morning) led me to close my eyes and hold a K-cup in each hand. Unfortunately for the yummy Colombia...

Gevalia Colombia coffee had to wait until the following morning for its turn, as the Signature Blend made its way into my Keurig first.

Is there anything better than being able to press a single button and have the warm, alluring aroma of gourmet coffee beans come wafting out as Gevalia's rich, never bitter, coffee fills your cup?

I have to admit, if this addiction is wrong, I'm pretty sure that I never want to be right.

After having (and enjoying) both of these Gevalia single serve cup varieties in my home, I have no doubt that I'll be picking up more in the future! I love how these new K-cups have brought the rich taste of Gevalia's traditional roast and grind coffee to the easy-to-use single serve cup platform. I'm able to relish in the outstanding quality and delicious, full-bodied flavor so quickly and easily!

We just love Gevalia in our home. So glad to see it in K Cups!

Agreed. I got a free sample of these and found them far tastier than the other brands of K-cups that I've tried.

My husband is addicted to coffee, too. I don't know what he would do if he ever tried to go off it. It's interesting how everyone has their own personal preferences and they are important.
