Gevalia Kaffe Columbia Coffee

Gevalia Kaffe Columbia Coffee
I'm running low on coffee's to review so I picked this Gevalia Kaffe, Columbia coffee up at the store the other day; I've seen it advertised and wanted to give it a try. The only down side to this review is they had no whole bean, so this sample is pre-ground.

From the bag the Gevalia Kaffe, coffee has mellow coffee and wheat aroma. Doing the pour-over, the wheat takes over and it gives off a predominate warm bread like aroma, while developing a creamy bloom.

Tasting the cupped coffee, it was bright, crisp, tart and light, with a palate cleansing mouth feel. The flavors found were lime, warm bread, earth, caramel and wheat. As the coffee cools it develops the caramel sweetness with a lingering wheat aftertaste.

For a second test I auto-dripped a pot and found drastic differences in both the body and flavor. The body was heavier with more of a syrupy texture, while the main flavor found was warm bread. While the auto-drip sample was a great cup of coffee, it lacked the complexity found by doing a pour-over.

Rated 4.7 of 5
