Final Verdict

In our opinion, the Gevi 10-Cup Grind and Brew is one of the better midrange grind and brew drip coffee machines available on the market. It’s easy to use, and simple to maintain but also brews a nice cup of coffee.

And for the $150 retail price the features like adjustable grinding, immersion technology and auto programming make it a pretty good value buy.

On the other hand, there are some questions about just how durable it is and the customer service is not going to win any service awards soon as poor as it is.

This little know mid-range coffee maker with commercial-grade burr grinder can grind and produce up to 10 cups of the freshest pot of your favorite coffee in less than 15 minutes. The brand isn’t well known but could this brewer really be a 1st round draft pick worthy of your home coffee lineup?

In this quick straight to the gist Gevi 10-Cup Grind and Brew review, we answer the question and give our overall rating to help you decide.

Performance

What brew modes does it have?

  • For beans from the hopper, there are 8 different settings of coarseness that you can choose from to get the flavor you are looking for.
  • Whether you decide to brew from the coffee grounds or use the grind and brew option to brew from coffee beans, you can either use the brew now mode or set the 24-hour digital timer to brew later. If you set the timer, the coffee beans will be ground right before they are brewed.

  • You can de-lime the Gevi 10-Cup Grind and Brew by purchasing a descaling solution, mixing it with water, and then running it through the machine with a brew cycle. Or, some users prefer to use white vinegar because it is chemically less harsh. 

How easy is it to clean?
