Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker
on February 10, 2011
I have been a Gevalia customer for many years and find GEVALIA to be one of the finest companies in the coffee business. That is why I was horrified when I read the reviews on the Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker. I purchased one Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker simply because I had to see why a GREAT COMPANY WOULD SELL SUCH AN INFERIOR PRODUCT.
The Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker seller was Apex Suppliers. They shipped the product which arrived in two days in perfect working condition.
I immediately opened the package and connected the Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker to power. Following instructions, I filled the unit with cold water, held my breath, and primed the system according to directions. I placed a measuring cup under the fill spout, pressed the power button, and then pressed the brew button. Nothing happened. Just a short spurt and then a sputter. I just knew the problem had to be an air lock in the supply line. I removed the water tank and used a regular kitchen irrigation syringe to depress the small white spring loaded water valve and gave the system a couple squirts of water. I replaced the water tank, primed the system, placed a measuring cup on the unit, and pressed the brew button. The Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker dispensed exactly eight ounces of piping hot water. I then ran three brewing cycles in the six ounce, eight ounce, and fourteen ounce modes three time on each station. Each time the Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker delivered exactly six, eight, and fourteen ounces.
The Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker has worked perfectly day in and day out ever since. We are also Keurig fans and the Keurig Elite has served us well for a long time. We have always had anxiety about disposing of all those plastic k-cups and the resulting environmental impact. The Keurig Elite is now our backup coffeemaker. The Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker is more cost effective, K-cups vs. pods, and it produces a better tasting, piping hot, 14 ounce cup of coffee.
The Gevalia G90 Pod Coffee Maker is truly a quality product from a QUALITY COMPANY, GEVALIA.
