Product Watch: Gevalia Does Amaretto

[ 0 ] April 18, 2013 |

photoCoffee is mandatory for the beginning of my workdays.  Without it, communicating seems to be a bit of a fog and can become a tad bit annoying.  I know I sound like I have an addiction to the brewed beverage but it is actually good coffee that is a must have in the early morning hours.  These days my mornings begin with Gevalia Amaretto Light Roast coffee.  Piping hot steam spreads the aroma of sweet Amaretto making all the tasks at hand for the day seem like a piece of cake.  It doesn’t hurt that the Amaretto reminds me of the likely ending of the day: Happy Hour.

Coffee is an acquired taste and switching from Dunkin Donuts to Starbucks to Gevalia has taken my palate through some changes.  Gevalia proves to be more cost efficient for my wallet and provides the distinct blended coffee bean flavor I need in the mornings.  Afternoons tend to get tough at times and I refuse to have coffee after 10 am, which is where Gevalia’s Green Tea with Mango comes into play.  The light hint of mango tricks my palate into believing something sweet might wait at the end without the excess calories.  Now that’s what I call an afternoon snack.
