Coffeemaker 12 Cups Low Heat 17 Grind Options

Consistent grinding over low heat and friction produces the best tasting and best smelling coffee ever. KRUPS GVX1, fortunately, uses low heat action to provide consistent results. This coffee grinder can produce anywhere from 2 to 12 cups using any of the 17 grinding options.

The KRUPS GVX1 can already cater to all sorts of preferences, at least in terms of coffee beverages.
  • Savory and aromatic coffee is produced every time the GVX1 is set to grind. This is because the product is designed to operate in minimal heat so as not to destroy the coffee bean oils that contain the flavor and aroma. The turnover of the coffee beans to the burr is also consistent.

  • The bean hopper is also capable of storing up to 8 ounces of coffee beans. It also has a clear, maximum line to mark just where the user can stop when pouring in coffee beans. The grounds container is transparent.
