GEVALIA 15% Kona Blend
Not as strong as the Kenco Columbian (my favorite), but it and the new Columbian are very good. It's less fruity than the Columbian, a little nutty. More complex than the king of joe dark (which I also like).

Love this blend!
Delicious! So happy you have this online now. My closest Bed, Bath & Beyond is 30+ minutes away and this is my favorite blend besides the Signature Crema and Italian Dark Roast. Have not disliked any Gevalia product yet.

I've been getting the Gevalia Kona blend at Bed Bath and Beyond for several months, and I am very happy to see it available on line and for automatic delivery. Like many, I've been looking for everyday replacements for the discontinued bold Starbuck's selections. The Gevalia selections have been worth the wait, and this adds nicely to the collection.
For reference, I drink a lot of the Gevalia Columbia and their Dark Breakfast Blend. The Kona is a little stronger than the Breakfast Blend and a good match for the Columbian. I find that all three satisfy my morning fix quite nicely. As a blend, the Kona is less nutty than 100% Kona, but there is that component to the taste and it holds up very well to my non-fat half and half. It is considerably stronger than my afternoon Jacobs Kronung.
