Krups GVX2-12 Burr Grinder: An Exercise in Futility

 

BACKGROUNDI purchased a Krups GVX2-12 burr grinder from Boca Java, a custom coffee roaster in Florida that provides a coffee delivery service -- a very good company, by the way. Boca Java was converting their rewards system to cash rebates ...

High class looks. An excellent doorstop

Poor engineering design. Functions poorly at grinding coffee

Grinding your way to contentment

 

Like many Americans, I love my coffee in the morning. The feeling of caffeine running through my veins to wake me up and get me moving for the day is just what I need. Yet I am no coffee snob. I cannot taste the delicate, distinct ...

Good for the money. Takes up precious little counterspace. Elegant design aesthetic.

Consistent grind, quiet

Clogs easily with oily beans, static

Consumer review by:

Decent but Problematic

 

I have owned a few grinders in the past, (Braun KSM2 blade & Cuisinart DBM-8 burr) and I had high hopes for this model. Being the Krups brand with German engineering, I purchased this model from Macys November 2007 after donating my Cuisinart to my ...

Styling, German engineering looks, cup and grind selector knobs

clogs or jam consistently, uneven grind. Quality control issues

Consumer review by:

Works but slow and static city

 

Good for home use. Good consistent grinding.

A little too slow and too much static
