NEW FEATURE: 2 rods have been added on the front to guide the portafilter.

The brand new iMini is a superb burr coffee grinder from Ascaso, a company that specializes in commercial and domestic coffee equipment. Its compact size makes it ideal for home use, and it sports a very solid construction.

Turning the knob on the side of the grinder allows the grind setting to be adjusted to any point on a continuous scale from the finest to the coarsest setting. This is known as stepless adjustment. This feature allows very small adjustments to be made very easily - making it one of the few grinders that can achieve the perfect grind setting for making espresso.

The body of the black i-Mini is made from aluminum which is then powder coated to give a durable black finish. The body of the aluminum i-Mini is made from aluminum polished to a shiny finish. When these grinders get wet near your espresso machine, there is no rust!

The hopper is made from clear plastic and holds approximately 250g of coffee beans. The hopper just lifts off for washing, and the top of the grinder is easily removed to allow access to the burrs for cleaning. Please make sure to remove the beans from the hopper prior to removing the hopper.

The ground coffee is dispensed directly into your portafilter handle from the chute. Simply hold the portafilter handle against the button on the front of the grinder to activate the grinding mechanism. If you do not use an espresso machine, you can dispense the coffee into a small cup or container.

  1. Please note that grinders with the above stepless adjustment are not good candidates for grinding for multiple types of coffee brewing methods. The reason is that it is difficult to change settings from very course for french press to very fine for espresso as turning the adjustment knob countless times makes this impractical. however, to fine tune a grind for espresso,the stepless feature works great!
  2. The instructional manuals for Ascaso are printed for worldwide distribution and covers almost every model produced worldwide. With this in mind, there may be features, accessories, or colors available in Ascaso equipment in other countries, but not available in our models produced for the United States.
  3. Power of machine is turned off by a manual switch (not timer).
  4. Important Note for ALL coffee/espresso grinders. NEVER adjust your grind in the finer direction unless the motor is spinning. If the motor is off and you adjust finer, there is a very likely chance that you will compact beans between the burr teeth and gunk up the burrs or carry grinds into the grinding chamber threads - jamming the burr carrier. This is not covered under warranty. Typically, the remedy of a jammed grinder takes two technicians about one hour each, resulting in a 2-hour labor charge.
  5. Please note that the electrical cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish/slice to damage the cord.
