Overview

The Ascaso I-Mini lives up to its namesake as one of the most compact performance espresso grinders on the market. More than just small, however, the I-Mini brings excellent grind consistency and simple operation to your kitchen counter, all at an affordable pricepoint. Targeted specifically for espresso setups, the I-mini features 54mm flat burrs and a high-accuracy stepless grind adjust that makes dialing-in your favorite espresso a breeze. This version, equipped with both a built-in timer and a grind adjustment indicator offers extra functionality over its more-basic cousin.

Features and Functionality

  • 54mm Flat Burrs - A good balance between speed and efficiency, these hardened steel burrs make short work of espresso grinds.
  • Stepless Grind Adjust - Near-infinite grind settings make dialing in a new coffee easy.
  • Timer Version - This version of the I-mini includes a simple analog grind timer for portafilter dosing.
  • Compact Case - A petite 5" x 9" footprint makes this one of the smallest espresso grinders on the market.
Pros
  • Small - One of the smallest espresso grinders on the market, the I-mini is an excellent choice for those limited on space.
  • Accurate - The stepless screw-style adjust gives very granular control over grind selection, and small touches are easy to set.
  • Timer - While basic in operation, the timer setup is easy to adjust and a nice upgrade to the all-manual i-mini variant.
Cons
  • Clumpy - The I-mini lacks any sort of clump reduction functionality, and at finer grind settings can be the cause of channeling.
  • Adjustment Speed - The screw-style adjustment is accurate, but makes the I-mini very difficult to use for multiple brew methods.
How Does it Compare? Beware your I-mini variants! Two versions exist of the I-mini grinder. The I1 (above) features a brass burr carrier and hardened steel 54mm burrs. The cheaper I2 variant has smaller conical burrs and a plastic burr carrier, and can lack enough motor torque for consistent grinds—especially with lightly roasted coffee.
