Gevalia Kaffe Traditional Roast Coffee

Gevalia Kaffe Traditional Roast Coffee
Since the last Gevalia Kaffe review went so well I picked up another roast to sample. This time it's their Traditional Roast. 

Once the bag's seal was broken there were notes of cocoa and caramel to the nose. I still can only find their coffee in pre-ground form. This is a medium roast and I found it a bit lighter in color than most medium roasts I've reviewed. Doing the pour-over a creamy, frothy bloom developed with a sweet, nutty aroma. 

Once cupped the first sips were bright, and crisp with a light palate cleaning mouthfeel.

Tasting notes: While the flavor profile isn't complex, this Gevalia Kaffe Traditional Roast has well balanced flavors of grapefruit, nuts, semi-sweet caramel and toast, plus a lingering nutty aftertaste.

Overall this was another nice roast from Gevalia Kaffe. I give it a 4.6 out of 5 star rating.
