Grinding adjustment
  • Stepped – Adjustment dial is located underneath the hopper. The entire dial is numbered so you can remember your current grind setting easier. Turn clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
  • Setting lock – A setting lock button keeps your current setting. Prevents users from accidentally altering it and spending time to find your correct setting again.
Grinding burrs
  • Flat burrs – Very large size at 75 mm. The larger the size, the more of a grinding surface, resulting in faster production.
  • High rpm – Faster spinning rate at 1400 rpm. The higher the speed, the faster the production, which can increase efficiency and reduce wait times.
  • Easy access – Remove the bean hopper. Turn the grinding adjust to the coarser direction until the top assembly comes off. This will give you access to the burrs and the grinding chamber. The burrs themselves are held in with Flat head screws.
Electronic controls / on demand grinding
  • Digital display – Easy to read. Displays both intervals for the on demand options.
  • Easy operation – .
  • Semi-automatic control – You can use any on demand option to start the grinding process. Press the same option to stop the grinding.
Cooling fan
  • Included option – We special requested this feature. This helps keep the overall operating temperature low. If you are using this for a high volume cafe or big trade show, this grinder will keep on grinding without working up a sweat.
Grinds catch tray
  • Large size – .
  • Removable – .
Bean hopper
  • Large capacity – Holds approximately 3.3 pounds of coffee. Can easily hold your standard kilo bag.
  • Finger guard – Prevents users from “accidentally” putting their fingers in the grinding burrs. The finger guard is removable.
  • Set screws – There are 2 screws that come with the grinder. These screw into holes underneath the finger guard. This helps secure the hopper to the grinder. Prevents users from quickly removing the hopper, spilling beans everywhere.
  • Stopper – A door near the bottom of the hopper slides inward to close the opening. This allows you to remove the hopper with beans inside so you can easily change the beans. There will be some beans already passed in the burrs which will have to be ground out first before removing the hopper.

Espresso Grinder Warning

  • CLEANING WARNING: We recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or burr carrier for cleaning as re-assembly can cause damage.
  • ELECTRICAL WARNING: To avoid electrical damage to this espresso grinder which is not considered a manufacturer's defect, please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. The lack of the recommended surge suppressor, the espresso grinder can be damaged at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.

  1. Changing grind settings: As with all coffee grinders, it is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered ‘on’ and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and require cleaning by you every time this occurs. Changing the grind settings when the burrs are not in motion will render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. If this result occurs, this will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
  2. Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: We have confirmed that the manufacturer tests EVERY grinder with coffee beans before it leaves their facility, but they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging when you unwrap it.
  3. Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, trying using a different blend of beans.
  4. Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flat head screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.
  5. Electrical cord: 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.

    I saw the "Don Vito" espresso grinder you have available and very interested in purchasing. I have a few questions I was hoping you can answer before I make a final decision. Do you have any suggestion of replacement burrs for the future? Can the 75mm burrs be upgraded to an aftermarket burrs? If yes, what aftermarket do you suggest? Do you know how much retention does this grinder approximately have for every dose? I'm planning to use this grinder for home and eventually for a cafe setting. I'm currently using Mazzer mini and the retention is a lot for single dosing

    This is a large grinder, mostly for cafes and restaurants. Currently, we have yet to replace any burrs on this grinder and replacement burrs are available.

    As for retention, there will be some on almost every European made espresso grinder. We are unsure of the amount, but if the cafe is very busy, retention will not matter as much. Retention amount can also change based on grind fineness, humidity levels, as well as other factors, such as moisture content in the beans.
