Inspired by professionals and designed for connoisseurs, KRUPS products have been built with three key attributes in mind: Passion, Precision and Perfection. Grinding beans just before brewing ensures the best flavor and a perfect result in cup that's why KRUPS has developped: GVX212 Coffee Grinder. Its burr mill system ensures the best grinding results without overheating the beans and the 17 settings grind size selector allows for a highly controllable texture, from very fine for espresso machines to very coarse for use in French press. The number of cups selector enables you to determine the number of coffee drinkers and adjust the quantity setting accordingly. The KRUPS GVX212 Coffee Grinder features a 8oz. air tight bean hopper as well as a removable anti-static coffee container with lid to preserve freshness and flavor of coffee at every step of the grinding process.
