Product Description

The company famous for making espresso shots a 'dream' offers this mid-range grinder designed for first-time users and those simply too busy for fussy operating features. This is the hand polished aluminum design. It has upgraded 54mm flat burrs.

Features and Functionality of the Ascaso i1 Flat Burr Espresso Grinder

  • Easy Grinding and Dosing - On the side of the grinder there is a switch to turn the grinder on and off.
  • Doserless Grinder (i) - Hold portafilter handle directly below spout on front of grinder, press in far enough to depress the grind button, the grinder will begin grinding. Hold until the desired amount of coffee is dispensed. Make sure the main power button is switched on.
  • Stepless Grind Adjustment - To adjust the grind, turn the knob on the side of the grinder to adjust the grind finer, or turn it the opposite direction to make the grind coarser. Ascaso refers to this it's Micrometric Regulation System (MRS). The adjustment knob allows for infinite grind settings.
  • 54mm Flat Burrs (i-1) - The i1 and i1d (doser) versions of this grinder feature a better and faster set of burrs coupled to a lower RPM motor for better temperature control and grind consistency. The 54mm flat burrs are coupled to a 250 Watt 600 RPM motor. Select this version of the grinder for a greater level of grinding precision, speed and consistency.
  • Large Coffee Bean Hopper - With the ability to store up to 1.1 pounds of coffee beans in the hopper, there is no need to constantly refill the grinder. It will hold enough beans for 60 shots of espresso. It is made of clear shatter resistant plastic and topped with a plastic lid.
  • Pros
    • Stepless Control - Revel in precise control over the consistency of your grind with Ascaso's Micrometric Regulation System (MRS)
    • The Big Hopper - The shatter-resistant bean hopper is larger than average, holding 1.1 lbs of beans
    Cons
    • No Reference Marks - Because there is no end to the turns on Ascaso's stepless knob, there are no markers to help you recall your grind settings from one to another
