Description:

Ascaso i-Mini Doserless Black Flat Burr Grinder (i-1) - Don't underestimate the Ascaso i-mini because of its size. This grinder is not only has Ascaso's characteristic beauty but also serves as an exceptional espresso grinder. This version of the I mini is an i-1 which means it has 54mm flat burrs. It is a doserless grinder so you can grind directly into the portafilter.

 

Ascaso engineers managed to pack a whole lot of capability into the I-Mini's compact case. As you read below, you will be impressed by the high-quality construction that comes standard on Ascaso products. Even at first glance, you should know you're in for a treat. The body of the I-Mini is made from aluminum which is then either powder coated for a durable black finish or polished for a beautiful, high gloss shine.

 

Unlike steel-bodied grinders, when the Ascaso i-Mini gets wet near your espresso machine, there is no rust! The all metal dispensing chute is a nice touch too, as it is one less piece of plastic to worry about. Additionally, while the I-Mini is definitely smaller than other units, Ascaso does not skimp on capacity with a bean hopper that still holds over half a pound!

 

For model I-1 : brass grinding group with a flat grinding wheel system (plane steel blades) .
For model I-2 : plastic grinding group and a conical (cone shaped) grinding wheel (conical steel blades). 

Ascaso equipped the I-Mini grinder with the same serious heavy-duty conical burrs found on its big brother, the i-2. The I-Mini's burrs are harder and more defined, with a tooth pattern that is incredibly precise and intricate. The resulting grind quality from Ascaso I-Mini is absolutely amazing and consistent. In addition, the Ascaso's burr set is simple to clean, making this often overlooked yet important task a breeze rather than a chore. 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 lower burr and then reassemble the grinder - total time is about 2 minutes.

The Ascaso I-Mini is a doserless grinder, which means that the grinds are discharged out a chute directly into an espresso portafilter. This is a great feature for less frequent espresso drinker or even for those who just want to have the freshest possible ground espresso every single time. The I-Mini's operation couldn't be easier: Simply place your espresso portafilter beneath the chute so that it depresses the metal switch on the face of the grinder. This activates the Ascaso's motor. When you have filled the filter holder to the desired amount, remove it and the Ascaso I-Mini will immediately shut off.
