RE: Gevalia coffee
The best deal is to take the sign-up inducement (usually a coffee maker), back out of the agreement after the minimum purchase requirement is met, and then buy your coffee beans elsewhere. If you want a really great, strong coffee, I strongly suggest Whole Foods' Organic Pacific Rim Blend. I buy a bag every couple of months, grind the beans myself, and make the coffee in my Gevalia coffee maker. A great deal, all around.
