Gevalia C-60A 12 cup

Gevalia C-60A, 12 cup model This coffee maker was part of a promotion for Gevalia. If you joined and bought coffee from them monthly, you received a free coffee maker. There was a choice of black, white or green model. I choose the black, as it seems to go with any color scheme. It is a 12 cup brewer and it is programmable.

I drink coffee only occasionally, but do drink a lot of hot tea. This is a treat for me, as I no longer need to “put on the kettle.” I can get it ready before I go to bed, and my hot green tea is waiting for me when I get up in the morning. I don’t have to get up earlier to make my tea or coffee.

When I make hot tea, there is no need for a filter, as the tea bags work very nicely! If I make coffee, I use a standard size filter. I wasn't really sure how good of coffee maker it would be, since it was "free." I have been more than happy with this model. The company has great customer service.

I received a follow up call after receiving the coffee maker to make sure that everything was as expected and that I was happy with the products: coffee, tea and coffee maker. This maker travels very well. I have used it numerous times to take to meetings, classes and bazaars. When I use it this way, I typically use it only for hot water for tea, as there is usually a larger coffee urn in use. Clean up is easy, whether it is used for tea or coffee.

I just pour clean, cool water through just like I am making coffee/tea twice, and air dry. I use the flushed through water for my indoor plants. I learned a trick for cleaning the carafe when I was a waitress: leave about 1 cup of hot water in the carafe, pour in about ¼ cup of salt add several ice cubes (8-10), swirl, rinse with cool water and you have a clean carafe!

My double holder comes out a different color of coffee. NEW
by: Anonymous

In order to eliminate this phenomenon should:
• Conduct monthly preventive work.
• Check how well the Barista fulfills the requirements of the technological process.
• Replace the sieve holder.
• Disconnect double spout holder and thoroughly wash special tool holder and the nozzle holder from the plaque.
When using the holder to make two cups of coffee, to hope that You will get exactly the same quality and volume of the product, it is not necessary for objective reasons.
If You produce a day not more than 500 cups of coffee, it is better to replace the dual holder for single.

Burned plastic flavor
by: Anonymous

I signed up for and received the coffee maker and coffee. I have run the coffee maker several times with both coffee (two kinds) and water but the burned flavor and smell remains. It smoked a little, too. I can send it back at my expense but it will end up costing so much that it's not worth it. I want to think that this is a fluke since I and some friends have always had good experiences with Gevalia, but in this instance I can't say that I am pleased.

I've run a 10% vinegar solution and water through this maker upwards of 10 times, but the plastic taste of the coffee and the plastic smell of the reservoir perists. I'm this close to taking it back.

Very Disappointed
by: Anonymous

I purchased this coffee maker as a gift for my mother. She took it out the box and used it and it spits out coffee grinds into her cofee as well as all over her counter. She then tries to wash wipe the front of the pot and the gold "Gevalia" wipes off with only a sponge a warm soapy water. She called the company to try to get it replaced and they told her they couldn't talk to her because she did not buy it but if she gave them $100 they would give her a new pot. Then she calls back with me on the line and I told them that I wanted it replaced, they told me that as of today the company policy has changed and they do not do replacements unless you pay for a new pot up front and once they get the old one back, they will refund the money. The customer service reps were rude and disrespectful and I will never purchase another item from gevalia.... ever!

It was free!
by: Anonymous

Best thing about it, IT WAS FREE. Works great, no problems, been in use for 4+ years now and survived 2 moves. Has a timer too so I can have fresh coffee brewed for me as soon as I wake up.
