- Aluminum Case - Sturdy aluminum casing, available in textured black or polished finishes, is sure to withstand the rigors of a busy kitchen.
- Stepless Grind Adjust - A stepless grinder adjustment thumb dial offers near-infinite settings, making the I-mini particularly well-suited for dialing-in espresso shots.
|SCG Staff Says...||
The I-Mini comes in two versions, the I1 and I2. The I1 sports a 54mm flat burr with a solid brass burr holder, while the cheaper I2 has a plastic burr holder with small 38mm conical burrs. We've had much better experience with the larger, flat burrset for espresso.
|How Does it Compare?||
The grind quality of the I-mini for espresso is peerless in its price range. The next great grinder near this price point is the Rocky, which has a clunky stepped adjustment collar.

Ask a Question
Do you plan on using the grinder for anything other than espresso? If so, I'd recommend the Rocky, as its MUCH easier to make big adjustments on than the I-mini.
