Did you see that “no additional commitment” part? They want you to try their coffee so much they’re giving away a free coffee pot just for trying it.

I love my Gevalia. My favorites are Cafe Sperl, Antico Greco & Le Procope. Apparently I like the European flavors. ; ) They also have two seasonal flavors right now, Pecan Torte and Raspberry Danish. Mmmm, Pecan Torte….

Try The Gevalia 3 for FREE with SS Mug

Well, not yet. My birthday is coming up in a few days though. So why am I singing? Because I got an email today saying that my next Gevalia shipment is shipping out. Perfect timing! I’ll be getting some more Antico Greco, Breakfast Blend and French Roast. Three of my favorites. (Actually all four of the European blends are favorites, with Cafe Sperl at the top and Antico Caffe Greco #2.) So happy birthday to me! Have some coffee – Why thank you, I think I will. 😉

And then I checked out Gevalia’s Spring Clearance…

Written by Amber on April 15, 2010 – 6:40 pm -

My coffee pot is on the fritz. =(

The FRITZ. As in, I push “start” and it starts and then it stops a few minutes later with several cups of water in the reservoir. So I push start again and it processes some more of the water and then it stops again. Still not finished. Around and round we go — and I’m not liking having to wait that long and go through that much trouble to get to my coffee.

Which is sad because I haven’t had this one that long and my previous pot (a Gevalia Kaffe pot) lasted 12 years!!

So then I checked out Gevalia’s Spring Clearance section.



I’m seriously thinking about replacing the fritzy one with either the 12 cup or the 4 cup coffee maker.. I can’t decide. I CAN drink 12 cups of coffee a day but do I NEED TO?? Um, no. I have company that drinks coffee so rarely that I may go with the 4 cup.

And did you see the Blueberry Creme coffee on clearance, too? That sounds like a definite “Must Try.” My regular coffee order is coming out of this paycheck so I’m going to have to wait until the next one. (And hope that things are still on clearance.) If they’re NOT.. I’ve learned there’s an ongoing 20% off promotion while digging around in my affiliate dashboard!!

To earn a 20% off discount, simply click this link >> Get 20% Off Your Entire Gevalia Order!

So should I get the 12 cup (29.97) or the 4 cup (17.97) Hmmm…


**Yes, that IS an affiliate link, which means that IF you order something (GO CHECK OUT THAT CLEARANCE SECTION, SERIOUSLY), you get a discount and I get a (very) small commission. Any earnings go towards the Amber Oliver new coffee pot fund.

Post-Thanksgiving Post

Written by Amber on November 29, 2009 – 6:58 pm -

What a week last week! We were non-stop busy-busy. We had two Thanksiving meals, several fall crafts, and in between we made Indian costumes for the kids to wear to our 2nd family gathering. It was loads of fun. And somewhere in there my Gevalia order arrived! I found it at the post office on Friday but with all the running around to other relatives houses, I didn’t a chance to to try it out until this morning. Today: Peruvian Organic. Mmmm.

And with Thanksgiving barely even out of the way… YAY CHRISTMAS!! =D

In the Pursuit of Beans

Written by Amber on October 16, 2009 – 12:36 pm -

I’m disappointed. Our local grocery stores in our small town do not carry whole bean coffee. Not any. Not even one. I ended up settling for Folgers French Roast. It was either Folgers, Maxwell House, store brand or Dunkin’ Donuts. It’ll do… as I said, I’m a coffee junkie not a coffee snob.


I remember back “then.” Back when I was a teenager and all my dad bought was whole beans and we ground it ourselves for each pot. I remember back in the early days of our marriage when I didn’t think about the costs of whole beans versus ground or this brand against that brand.

I believe my dad bought his beans, or at least the Kona, from a store at the mall. I’m not driving an hour for coffee beans. The last time I bought whole beans I believe I got them at Wal-Mart. Perhaps I will check there the next time I make it to Wal-mart. Whenever that will be.

Or perhaps I will go ahead and buy some online from Gevalia?…Online ordering is, after all, my favorite way to shop. =)
