Eliminate the need for hours upon hours of training with the La Marzocco Swift. This espresso grinder handles it all, from grinding to dosing to tamping with ease. Programmability eliminates inconsistency in your espresso extracting process as well, making it even easier to make a name for your coffee shop. Also, when it comes to the bottom line, this grinder eliminates a lot of the waste commonly found in other grinders. It is easier to clean and prevents wasted coffee residue.

Features and Functionality

  • High Capacity: Two giant hoppers (4 pound capacity each!) mean you can keep plenty of luscious whole bean coffee at the ready, both decaf and regular. Reduces time spent filling the hopper.
  • Programmable Consistency: The Swift espresso grinder will remove variability from your espresso grind, and can keep consistent the little things like quantity and tamp pressure, both done automatically.
  • Automatic Tamping: The La Marzocco Swift grinder will automatically tamp, ensuring consistent pressure applied to the coffee puck every time.
  • High Speed Ceramic Burrs: Arguably the best burrs are flat ceramics (still up for debate, we know), but the La Marzocco Swift utilizes them to ensure not only longevity but also minimal heat transfer to the freshly ground beans.
  • Volume Dosing System: Forget about timed dosing, which leads to inconsistent quantities. The La Marzocco Swift uses a volume-based system which ensures you get the same amount of coffee grind every time.
  • Professional - The La Marzocco Swift is built for the coffee professional. This grinder is capable of handling the long lines of the morning rush.
  • Programmable - Eliminate a lot of inconsistency found in other grinders with several programmable options such as dosing and tamping, making it even easier to keep the line moving.
  • Commercial Size - Two separate 4 pound hoppers keep both your decaf and regular customers happy.
  • Expensive - The price tag on this one is considerably higher than other grinders, so it's not for the budget conscious.
  • Heavy - At a hefty 75 pounds, once this grinder is in place, odds are good you won't want to move it anywhere else.

Can you program this grinder to dose for you, but allow you to do the tamping manually?
Jauna D on Mar 1, 2012
Best Answer: No, the La Marzocco Swift espresso grinder tamps as it grinds and is automated. If you want to manually tamp but have a programmed dose, the Mazzer Kony E or Robur E models are a great choice for a café environment.

How many pounds of pressure does the Swift utilize during the tamping process?
Snake River on Feb 10, 2017
Best Answer: The Swift actually tamps continuously as it grinds for a more uniform compression. So it's only tamping at about 7 pounds of pressure, but the effect is similar to tamping a fully-dosed portafilter at 30 pounds. Hope that answers your question.

How many drinks in an hour can the Swift handle? Like, if you had a constant line of people ordering espresso, could it handle that?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2015
Best Answer: It can handle as many as you can. This is a commercial grinder and so is intended for a lot of use.

will the tamper fit a nuova simonelli mac 2000 elle handle?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2014
Best Answer: While the tamper is a 58mm, the portafilter will actually lock into place, utilizing the tabs on the side of the portafilter to hold onto it. So, because these will be different for each brand, it will not work properly with a Nuova Simonelli portafilter.

They are awesomeReview by JaveMike
I used this for the first 4 years of my bartending and it is an amazing machine. There is a 3 dose lag to see adjustments, but you adjust with a single dial... its so accurate. (Posted on 11/27/2014)
Good consistency, efficiencyReview by Swift User
We have three shops and use Swifts at each of our shops. They're workhorses and very consistent. The dosing and even tamp are both excellent. When you pull for a naked portafilter, you see a very even flow without any significant channeling. Only downside for us is that it's difficult to adjust dosing, but I think the newer models have improved that. Pricey for sure, but ultra reliable (at least for us). Burrs are pricey as well.
