Gevi Espresso Machine Reviews
Not sure if the Gevi Espresso 15 Bar Coffee Machine is right for you? Check out these Gevi espresso machine reviews to help guide your decision.
“Wonderful machine, nice size. The only thing I would change is there’s hardly any room for the cup when brewing but otherwise great buy!” – Grace
“First I really like this machine. The controls are easy and mostly intuitive. It comes with the bare minimum of what you’ll need to get started accessory-wise. The improvements I’ve decided to make are 1)Non-pressurized basket. 2)Bottomless portafilter. 3)Calibrated tamper. 4)Coffee distributor. 5)Dosing funnel. 6)Knock box. 7)Frothing pitcher.
While these are not a must-have I find they just make the experience better from a consistency and cleanup perspective. As long as you use the stock pressurized basket you don’t really need a distributor and tamper. The first bottomless portafilter I bought was apparently designed for DeLonghi and didn’t fit (the locking ears are a little too thick and wide).
I found one that looks like it will fit but has not arrived yet, I’ll link it below along with the other parts I chose that do work. If the linked portafilter doesn’t work I’ll update my review in a few days.
In conclusion, This machine has thus far met my expectations and I am happy with it. I personally like the buttons and overall design better than the competing Delonghi I was considering. If you want a fancy portafilter and have some crafting skills I believe someone skilled with a Dremel and grinding/cutting disk could modify a Delonghi’s locking ears to make it fit. Though I don’t recommend it unless you are skilled.” – Craig
“I think every house needs two grinders like this one for coffee and one for spices since you don’t want to drink a coffee tasting like spices. Its price compared to the quality is great. Based on my experience, to get coarse-ground coffee you need to push the bottom for 5 seconds. Medium ground for a 12-second press and find grounds need more than 20 sec.
Remember always to Gently/slowly Shake the grinder while it’s grinding to help make a more consistent grind, otherwise, you end up with a mix of fine and coarsely ground particles. It’s just a little cumbersome to clean thoroughly but that’s fine.” – Bezli
“When switching between espresso and steaming milk settings the machine loses itself and cannot switch back and forth. The steaming process cannot be interrupted or it will not work because of the first reason.
I already talked with support and we discovered it all stems from there being no reset button…. so in order to get it to reset you either have to mess with it for 5-8 minutes or turn it off and wait 10 minutes for it to reset its self, even then its stayed stuck after. I returned it I do have to say the customer support is great.” – Colton
“I like the stainless steel look of the toaster, and the LED display that flashes a clear and simple blue number that changes when you turn the dial to the setting you want. Has extra-wide slots for bagels as well as a button for the bagel setting. Has a slide-out tray for crumbs that’s easy to remove and clean.
The dial has five little blue LED buttons/notches across the edge of the round dial that lights up blue and turns off one at a time from one side to the other as the time runs down until the toast or bagels pops up so you can tell when it’s getting close to finishing.” – Brent
“This is a great espresso machine that is fairly straightforward to operate versus others that I’ve used in the past. I’ve made really yummy lattes and cappuccinos with this machine. It fits nicely on my kitchen counter – not overly bulky. I highly recommend using the right “fineness” of your grounds or you may end up with a weak cup of coffee.” – Joanne
