Great for a dorm

 

I got this coffeemaker for free from Gevalia when I ordered 2 pounds of coffee (I spent $15 on the coffee). I use it in my dorm, and it's great! My roomie and I can make one or two cups at a time, and it only takes five minutes. To clean it, you just...

Easy to Use, Fast Brewing, Quality Construction

So far I love this coffee maker! (2 weeks as of 1-25-09)

 

When I received the offer for this coffee maker from Gevalia I was half heatedly interested. I have tried a couple of their offers in the past but I only drink a cup or two of coffee every few days and I am the only coffee drinker in my ...

Ease of set up.  Fast brewing cycle.  Brew two different beverages simultaneously.  And More!

I thought I'd miss a timer/clock function.  I don't!  Brew's under 5 minutes!

look for something better

 

The unit looks very nice, and works fine when you brew only one cup. But this special "coffee for two" maker has problems brewing two cups! When you fill the reservoir to make two full cups the left side overflows and the right side ends up only half...

Looks really cute, cups can be used on their own

Overflows left side, underfills right side

Everything is great, except the taste of the coffee.

 

We LOVE Gevalia coffee; we've been customers for a very long time, so this review is not a slam on Gevalia Coffee itself. And please understand that we are super-coffee-snobs; we know how to choose/grind/make good coffee.

Convenience, integrated mugs, takes up less space

Makes horrible-tasting coffee, no matter what brand is used

Coffee for Two - Free Gevalia Coffee Machine is a Winner

 

You’ve probably seen the ads for the Gevalia Coffee Club. They put out a lot of advertising material as well as posting offers at their web site www.gevalia.com. To entice folks to sign up, they offer free gifts—typically some type of coffee ...

Neat looking. Easy to use. Timer. Makes good coffee.

Incentive to sign up for coffee club. Can buy direct though.

Great coffee maker for on-the-go professionals

 

PROS: --thermal mugs instead of a decantur makes it very easy to "grab and go" --almost spill-proof mugs, more like spill-resistant because if you tip it at the right angle it will spill out. --incredibly easy idiot-proof programming --looks ...

looks impressive, easy programming, no decanter to clean, no hot plate, convenient thermos mugs

no "pause and serve", convex mug base would spill dripped water onto side of machine
