“Best value”

Written on: 08/01/2013 by flyhawkeye (1 review written)

Having read a number of negative reviews of this product, I had to provide a balance. A number of reviews suggest that you cannot grind an espresso with this machine and if you try it becomes clogged. This maybe true if you fill the hopper and expect 100gms or more, however if like me you only grind what you need, then there is no problem. It is quieter than the previous mill I used - Krups 75. It provides well ground coffee at all 17 settings. All in all a great product if you consume 2… Read Full Review

“Not perfect but pretty close!”

Written on: 31/12/2012

I have had the grinder for a few months and it has been a dream! You have a choice of coarseness and amount which is great, makes such a difference in flavour! It is a bit loud, but I don't suppose there's any surprises there and I had one small issue where I though the fuse had broken but actually I just wasn't cleaning the top bit properly so switches weren't being switched. Otherwise very very chuffed with it! Things I really like - the options it gives and the accuracy, ease of use. Things… Read Full Review

“Worked perfectly, straight out of the box.”

Written on: 17/11/2012

Brilliant machine, I do not know why I waited so long to buy it. German, made in Germany, therefore perfect construction. Churns out 2 filter pots and one french press full every day, seven days a week. I even use it at work for grinding test cuppings as part of our routine batch control for our coffee roasting facility. When we get round to it we will buy another one for the roaster laboratory they are so good. Poor at grinding for espresso, but that stuff is for hot milk drinkers only… Read Full Review

“Don't waste your money”

Written on: 03/10/2012 by blossomkay (1 review written)

I started having problems with my Krups grinder almost from the start. Having bought it to replace my little $19.95 grinder (which worked just fine) I was dismayed when I began to have problems with this one. You have to continually shake the beans down in order to get them to grind, but most frustrating is the fact that it just stops working for no reason. You can push the power button again and again, and nothing. I have cleaned it and done everything possible on my end to get this thing… Read Full Review

“Krups coffee grinder could be great if it would only work”

Written on: 23/06/2011 by busdriver (1 review written)

Owned the grinder for over a year and from day one the beans where not flowing into the grinder unless it was shaken, smacked, or banged then it would work for a few seconds. Nobody at Krups seems to care nor do they want to talk about it. I have been hung up on when i tried to explain the problems i was having. Very frustrating. I am just about done with this machine and will start looking for a replacement from a diffrent manufacture. Love my coffee! Just hate the grinder. I have cleaned it… Read Full Review

“Poor build quality”

Written on: 06/06/2011 by bfarwell (1 review written)

Received the grinder as a gift to replace our aged propeller grinder. It's pretty loud (probably not avoidable) and seems to have some odd electrical issue where, even if not turned on, it will run when we use another appliance in the same outlet (though perhaps that's just the house wiring). That's more weird than problematic, however. Real issues with it: the push button to start grinding broke off under normal use (it simply disappeared into the interior of the machine), and the bin… Read Full Review

It's easy to use, it's possible to specify the number of cups needed and the size of the grounds. The coffee tastes very good. It looks quite good and is not too large… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/08/2009

I contacted Krups shortly after buying our GVX2 as I found the top part became hot if left plugged into the wall socket. I had an immediate acknowledgement - then nothing. A second try brought the same results. We took to switching it off at the wall, which seemed to work. It stopped working shortly after guarantee ran out, producing a high pitched whine, but no coffee. I eventually had a reply from Krups to say in effect they were not interested. Unknown to me, my wife bought an identical… Read Full Review

This Krups GVX2 Expert machine does what is says on the box. It grinds coffee to the specific finess you desire. Fine for espresso, coarse for filter. I would ignore the previous bad remarks about it, their machines were obviously faulty!… Read Full Review

“Set up machine according to the instructions, added...”

Written on: 14/02/2007 by asr427 (2 reviews written)

Set up machine according to the instructions, added beans, pressed go and 15 seconds later I had pinch of ground coffee.
Tried again, and again, and again and eventually had enough to fill the coffee holder on my machine. Brewed a cup and it was the worst espresso I have ever had. Plugged my cheap old blade grinder back in and I am now waiting for a replacement machine to be delivered.

So first impressions: big let down. The Krups coffe machine I have is superb, the grinder is not… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2006 by Pete D (1 review written)

If you want to grind coffee for an espresso machine forget the Krups GVX2 Expert coffee grinder. I quickly gave up with it, and it has stood unused in my kitchen for months. I am now looking for an efficient replacement, as I much prefer my coffee freshly ground… Read Full Review
