NOTE: For home use only

The Ascaso i-Mini is a compact, stylish, conical espresso grinder that is designed for home users. It works well with a lot of espresso machines and is ideal for espresso machines like the Ascaso Dream UP, the Ascaso Steel, and other Ascaso espresso machines. It is a durable grinder that provides great ground espresso without taking up a lot of counter space.

A knob of the side of the grinder can be turned on a continuous scale, provide an infinite grind size between the finest and coarsest size limits. This makes it an ideal grinder for someone who wants to fine tune the grind size of their coffee to meet their flavor preferences. It allows very small adjustments, making it one of the few grinders on the market that can provide this level of control over grind size.

The Ascaso i-Mini is designed with a coffee chute that transfers coffee from the grinding chamber into your portafilter or holding container.

The i-Mini grinder is equipped with 38mm conical burrs that offer long term durability and can be used for a wide of coffee bean types and sizes.

With a height of only 12 inches, the Ascaso i-Mini is one of the smallest grinders on the market. There are a few other grinders with a similar size, but the quality and performance aren’t comparable in most cases.

Please note that grinders with the above stepless adjustment are not good candidates for grinding for multiple types of coffee brewing methods. The reason is that it is difficult to change settings from very course for french press to very fine for espresso as turning the adjustment knob countless times makes this impractical. However, to fine tune a grind for espresso, the stepless feature works great!

The instructional manuals for Ascaso are printed for worldwide distribution and covers almost every model produced worldwide. With this in mind, there may be features, etc. shown that are not available in models produced for the United States.

IMPORTANT: Water quality is a very important aspect of your espresso machine longevity. Water that is too hard will cause limescale buildup, which is the number one reason for operating problems. Too pure water, such as ultra pure RO water or distilled water can cause the machine to overfill, since the water level probe needs some minerals in the water to detect water. Use softened water that is about 50ppm in hardness. More info
