My wife brought some of her favorite coffee she brought back from her vacation to Sweden. I love it! I thought it was going to be a bummer not getting to buy any more of it.

Then I found out it's sold in stores in Sioux Falls.

The coffee in the red bag pictured above on the left is the stuff my wife brought back from Sweden. It's delicious.

The coffee in the yellow bag pictured above on the right is the stuff my wife brought back from Target. It's also delicious.

While the yellow bag is imported, and costs $3 more per bag than my wife paid for the red bag in Sweden, it does taste slightly different, more like the Starbucks breakfast blend I usually get for brewing at home.

I noticed a difference in the grind as well. The spoon on the left is the red bag and is ground more finely. The spoon on the right is the yellow bag and is typical of the way most Arabica coffee that comes ground looks.

I am not sure if the red bag actually tastes better, or if my inability to acquire more of it makes me like it more. Either way, I think I'm going all in on Gevalia.
