Ascaso 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).
This finish is achieved by polishing each part by hand, one by one.
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).
The micrometric adjustment system allows maximum grind adjustment. Guarantees perfect adaptation to any kind of coffee or espresso machine.
High-quality grind in a smaller format.
The grinder features a limit system for espressos, with adjustment help for the user. In just a few seconds, the perfect grind point can be found.
Coffee grinding adjustment
Enables viewing of the grind selected in all models. Made from stainless steel and laser-etched.
Both the I-1 and I-2 allow for an optional electronic timer to be added. This means the desired amount can be supplied by activating a timer switch.
This makes it even easier to use the grinder and guarantee the exact amount of coffee.
Hopper made from special hard-wearing plastic. Transparent, with fitted cover. Optional 600-g hopper.
