Don't Bother Me until I've Had My #CupOfKaffe

One thing I would never call myself is a morning person. Mornings have always been a real struggle for me and since my kids have reached school age it’s only gotten worse.  I am one of those people who not only needs, but requires a pickup to get through the morning. Without that first cup of coffee I would truly be lost.

My husband, he is a morning person. I admit some days I just don’t get how it is even possible for one to be so happy, so early in the day – yuck! And while I don’t share his love for mornings, I do share his desire for freshly brewed coffee to motivate me throughout the day.


K-Cups, Keurig

Since time and the amount of fuel coffee we require varies from day to day, we invested in a Keurig® K-Cup Brewer®, allowing us to freshly brew coffee by the cup, fast, and as needed - not only am I not happy in the morning but I am not patient either! The only issue, some of my favorite brands were either not available in K-Cup form or did not taste the same in single serve.

Gevalia now in K-cups!

Gevalia is a brand I am familiar with and have drank on many occasions, but since it was not available in K-Cups, it was not a brand I was able to enjoy often. As you might imagine when I heard Gevalia was now available at my local Walmart, for use in the Keurig® K-Cup Brewer®, I was certain to grab a few boxes on my very next trip.

While Gevalia is now available for the Keurig® in 3 different blends: Signature Blend, Colombia and Dark Royal Roast. I personally couldn’t wait to get home and enjoy the blend I though suited me the most, Columbia.

Gavalia Coffee Blends


Gevalia is known for being a rich, never bitter coffee, and I was pleased to find the same held true for the Gevalia single-serve cups. The Columbia blend is just what I needed to get my morning started off on the right foot. This medium roast is sourced with 100% Colombian beans and is surprisingly smooth, especially for a single-serve variety.


Columbian coffee

Typically I’m a sugar and cream kind of girl, but when trying a coffee for the first time I like to experience the full flavor without out masking it. I was shocked that even served black I was not left with that bitter after taste. I enjoyed every last drop in the same way I enjoy Gevalia’s auto drip blends. And when I did add that cream and sugar, that #CupOfKaffe may have made me just a tad friendlier the next morning - so delicious!

Smooth Coffee K-Cups

I also want to mention the price, because for some reason I had in my mind that Gevalia, being such fine coffee, would be one of the pricier K-Cup varieties.  In all actuality it is price quite well in comparison, and I am thrilled that the Gevalia taste I love has been combined with the ease of a K-Cup. My mornings can only get better from here....

My husband is a total morning person too! Thankfully he wakes up an hour before me and knows to bring me a cup of coffee right when I wake up!

I am not a morning person, but I get by with a smoothie instead of coffee. Sometimes a cup of tea, too.

The only bad thing I find about these Kcups is Im missing the fresh smell of the coffee when you first open the can. Ahhh!

I'm not a morning person either, feel your pain! Love Gevalia, it's certainly a terrific brew!

Coffee also helps me face the morning. The K-cups have really been a life-savor since I don't care for stale coffee. Glad you found them in your local store. I am still searching for the dark roast and bugging my Walmart manager to stock it. :)

I am a morning person who is up and running as soon as my eyes open at the first light of day. I love the smell of coffee in the morning though it is not necessary to my day.

I have wanted to try the Keurig along with the many varieties of K-cups that are available. It is nice to see that many brands of coffee are still being added to the K-cup options. I look forward to giving Gevalia a try.

I am not a morning person either. When my kids reached middle school, and even worse, high school, they had to be up so early, it was crazy. I never got up that early for a job. The first thing I did was make coffee. That was before the Keurig so it was more time consuming. Now that I have a Keurig, I could never go back. I used to buy Gevalia coffee all the time but I didn't know that they made k-cups. I'll have to give them a try.

I am so totally not a morning person! I have a Keurig and think using these K cups would make my morning so much easier.

There are definitely mornings like this where I just don't want to get my day started. This cup of coffee looks delicious!

I hate to say it but I am a morning person! But I love my coffee in the morning. I love Gevalia coffee because it is so smooth and tastes so good. I thought the picture of you was cute!

This post cracks me up. It is the other way around in our house. I am the morning person and my husband is Mr. Crabby Pants. Everyone knows not to ask him any questions until he has had his coffee.

We just have to start off with our coffee and my daughter will be beyond thrilled knowing these are in k-cups.

I am definitely a morning person: up between 5 and 5:30 to play with and feed the cat. But no coffee for me - a big mug of high quality green tea, please!

I am so with you! I NEED my coffee and I can't wait to try the Gevalia K-Cups!
