Gevalia Holiday Coffee Giveaway

This past weekend was my birthday and I was busy playing and eating with friends. More on that in a later post though. What I am most excited to share with you is a holiday coffee giveaway from Gevalia.


A while back the good people over at Gevalia contacted me about trying out their coffee after stumbling across my Pumpkin Spice Frappucino  recipe. I thought about it for a while, and decided what better way to share about Gevalia than to give you fine folks some too!

 Who is ready for some delicious holiday coffee? This dark roast blend was originally only offered by Gevalia during the holidays. But now you can get it anytime! This roast isn’t as dark as some dark roasts, so I think it is perfect for sharing with house guests this season or great as a gift as well.

 Here is how the Gevalia coffee giveaway is going to work. Leave a comment below this post telling me your favorite holiday treat! It can be anything! A tradition, a dessert, a cocktail, a party… anything! I want to hear from you. Be sure to enter a valid email address so that I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I promise to not spam or sell your email address. It’s safe with me. Enter your comment on this post before midnight CST Saturday November 17th, 2012 to enter to win!

 You will win a bag of whole bean Gevalia Royal Vinter coffee sponsored by Gevalia. If you don’t have a coffee bean grinder, I can grind it for you if you like. And because I think you’re all so wonderful I am going to give you all the ingredients for this holiday coffee drink as well! See the recipe below. If you’re local, I’ll throw in the whip cream, otherwise, I won’t be able to ship it without the whipped cream spoiling. But you’ll still get an amazing bag of holiday coffee and all the goodies!

I had thought of making something super swanky and elaborate but after trying the coffee black, I thought it didn’t need much help. The beans are really great on their own so I only did a little holiday sprucing.

For two cups of coffee:
Add 1/8 teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder into the coffee before brewing.

If you like sweet coffee, add 1/2 teaspoon sugar or sweetener of your choice.

Instead of cream or milk, top with heavy whip cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with a cinnamon stick if you want to get really fancy.


Thank you Gevalia for giving me a bag of Royal Vinter to share!

    My favorite treat to look forward to is my grandmother’s toffee – full of butter and chocolatey goodness. This post has me really looking forward to when the sweets come out and the coffee starts brewing (ahem) b/c that’s when the coffee is about to get spiked and the party really gets started w/the fam.

    I love pizzelles. We always make them around the holidays, so they’re a Christmas treat for me.

    Mmm… that looks and sounds absolutely delicious. My favorite holiday treat is chocolate bread pudding — the best thing ever. I bet it’d go smashingly with some of that coffee!
