(Update) How do you like your coffee? ****

Yeah, this is pretty off topic but...

I know many of you have seen ads for the Gevalia Coffee System. Well, two weeks ago, I got another and the offer was just too good to pass up. The coffee maker, two stainless steel 12oz mugs, two 8oz packages of coffee and filters for $10.00. That's right...$10.00. I sent them a check for $10.00 and I recieved the product yesterday. While composing this, I'm sipping my first cup and it is extremely good!

I checked all the printed materials and their website and there is no further obligation whatsoever! No "you can cancel your order at anytime" nonsense...nothing!

The question now is...has Gevalia lost their minds or have I lost mine?

Does anyone have the Gevalia?

Hmm...still using the Black and Decker here. I'll have to check this Gevalia out though. Does it work well? Do you have a Barney's up there? If so, try some of their Sulawesi blend coffee...best I've ever had.

I like my hamilton beach brew station. I just threw away an offer from Gevalia. Hmm, perhaps I should have opened it. :|

Although I found their coffee very good I did not think it was worth $30.00 per pound. That's more than LR costs and LR lasts a lot longer. I cancelled their subscription plan. I still use the cofee maker on occasion and the stainless steel carafe quite often.

I am a member of the Gevalia service and have been for many many years. They are straight up and have delicious coffee. The stuff in their catalog is good too!

Well there is a link to the coffee maker that i have. It is one of the best purchases i have ever made. Then i can get my whole beans like my Kona coffee beans ($50 CDN/pound), Jamaican Blue Mountain beans ($80 CDN/pound) or the extremely expensive kopi luwaki beans ($365 CDN/pound).

I did the Gevalia thing years ago and did not find the coffee to be worth the money, but I did use the coffee maker.

Now I make coffee this way: http://www.toddycafe.com/shop/product.php?productId=67

This is a cold-brew method, and you are basically making coffee concentrate that you keep in the fridge. You pour a little in your cup and add boiling water, so it is like instant, I suppose. Because the coffee is made without heat, there is absolutely no bitterness, and I now have a hard time drinking breweed coffee! This is kind of a curse, though, because my husband and I (and my mother, she got me started on it) are all hooked on this method, and it has turned us into coffee snobs.
