The line of coffee grinders from Ascaso can be described as beautiful,
colorful, and best of all, excellent grinding machines. The the I-1 Grinder is a
flat wheel grinder like many large commercial espresso grinders found in
coffee shops. The Ascaso I-1 flat grinding wheels ensure ultra precise grinding
of coffee beans. The wheels turn at 700 RPM for quiet, low static operation.
Made of tempered steel, the blades offer extremely long life and they are
replaceable. The grinding wheels are mounted on a heavy-duty platform made of
brass, which weighs in at nearly 5 pounds itself. The platform insures that the
wheels spin in perfect balance and with virtually no vibration. We recommend
the flat grinding wheels if you will be grinding mainly for espresso.
The Ascaso grinders have a Micrometric Regulation System (MRS) to
control the quality and consistency of the grinds. This system allows for
unmatched, precise adjustments to the grind setting, which is critical for
espresso grinding. You can grind coffee for drip, French press, Turkish, and
espresso. If you have an espresso machine, you will enjoy the convenience of
being able to grind directly into the coffee holder for your machine.
Detailed Product Features
Simple Manual Operation
On the side of the grinder there is a button that you can control the main
power. Just under the coffee dispensing chute, another spring-loaded manual
on/off button is present, and when pressed, the grinder will start, then
immediately turn off when the button is released. Place the coffee holder (or
any storage container) against the button to start grinding and then remove the
coffee holder when the desired amount of coffee has been dispensed.
No Coffee Dispenser
The grinders feature a coffee chute which funnels the freshly ground coffee
from the grinding chamber directly into a coffee holder for your espresso
machine or into a coffee filter, or even a storage container.
Easy to Clean
One important and often overlooked task required of owning a good coffee
grinder is routine cleaning. To clean, just remove the coffee bean hopper and
cover to expose the grinding chamber, which takes about 30 seconds. You can
perform a thorough cleaning to remove built up coffee grounds around the main
cutting wheel and then reassemble the grinder - total time is about 2 minutes.
Large Coffee Bean Hopper
With the ability to store up to 1.3 pounds of coffee beans in the hopper, there
is no need to constantly refill the grinder. It will hold enough beans to brew
several full pots of coffee or 60 shots of espresso. It is made of clear shatter
resistant plastic and topped with a plastic lid.
