1) From: Diablo
Someone passed me a box of (gulp) Gevalia.  I have never tried it.  It's been
my experience that anything vac. packed inside a week loses some of the vacuum
from remnant co2 escaping.  One wonders how old the grounds must be, he said
he's had this box since December.  
Wish me luck, what method should I use?  Moka, drip brew, cone...?

go for it.
it's free, try it.
in a pinch it may not be bad at all. they were rated by consumer reports/and wall street journel up near the top of the heap. I only know because my sister sends or drops off to me all reports and info on coffee.
maybe you should re-package it and send it off to friends as fresh roasted and see what happens; when they all report that they want more of that way to bright java...
send 'um more!!

Put it in the freezer and use it some cold, dark morning when you realize
that you are all out of homeroast.

Ewwww - I got some Gevalia for Christmas. Nasty stuff no matter how you 
brew it!

Hi Diablo,
    At one time in the distant past I bought Gevalia.  If it is the
preground stuff it is usually ground quite fine.  It was easy to use too
much grounds and end up with bitter coffee.  For a tasting experience I
would suggest at least trying it.  You could also keep it around for a "out
of coffee emergency" as suggested by David.  I think it is way overpriced.
You can usually get fresher, better tasting coffee at a local roaster or
definitely by roasting it yourself.  Plus, homeroasting is definitely
cheaper than buying already roasted stuff.
Happy Roasting,

From the back of the package, "Work it into the top one inch of soil being
careful not to disturb roots. Water thoroughly."
