Design and technology
High-quality materials and components
The i·mini coffee grinder is manufactured in aluminium. After preliminary polishing, the machine is treated with a high-quality varnish (the same coating as used in Formula 1 and on boats), with a range of 3 colours and a choice of finishes – polished gloss or textured matte (see colours).
As well as these colours, we also offer our mirror-polish finish, featuring an artisan-mechanical process that gives its own character to each piece (enlarge).
Any irregularities on the polished surface are the result of this laborious hand-crafted process that makes each piece unique.
All i·mini models use the I-1 or I-2 grinding group
In both models, the milling equipment is made from special tempered steel. This is the same steel as used in professional high-performance coffee grinders. Service life: 600 kilos.
Here the group is made from brass while the milling wheels are steel (54-mm diameter).
The grinding group is made from plastic while the grinding cones are steel.
Professional grinding groups
Both the I-1 and I-2 model milling groups guarantee professional grinding for espressos.
The I-1 model offers a faster grinding speed (250-W motor) and quieter running then the I-2 (175-W motor).
Coffee grinding adjustment
This makes it even easier to use the grinder and guarantee the exact amount of coffee.
