Stop wasting coffee due to retention purging!

The Turin DF64 is a new single dose grinder that we are very excited about launching in the US. It comes with Italian made ItalMill 64mm flat burrs that deliver a fluffy grind with minimal clumping and consistent particle size distribution. Single dosing is the rage in the espresso aficionado world these days and there aren’t very many good options that don’t cost a ton.

Superior Consistency, Retention and Exchange

This grinder is designed to eliminate purging and has some outstanding retention and dose consistency metrics. In tests it has had the following results:

  • < 0.2 grams of variance in dose consistency. This is the variance between the weight of the coffee that is put into the grinder vs the weight of the coffee that is put out by the grinder when the grinder has completed the grinding cycle.
  • Total retention is less than 1 gram. After several doses have been ground, the retention is the amount that the grinder holds on the edges of the burrs, the grinding chute, between the burrs, etc. Anything that is retained in the grinding path. This is an important metric in single dosing grinders because to obtain the best flavor possible it is ideal to have as little retention as possible. Any retained coffee that remains in the grinding path will end up in the grounds for the next shot you pull. So if you grind your coffee for a shot today, the retained grinds will end up in your shot tomorrow. Retained coffee grounds get stale and will alter the flavor of tomorrows shot in a negative way and can be quite noticeable, especially with certain coffee beans.
  • < 0.3 grams of coffee exchange, which is a metric that calculates the amount of stale coffee from previous grinding sessions that ends up in the current grinding session. If you put 15 grams of beans in, you want to get 15 grams of freshly ground coffee out, but the reality is all grinders will put a little bit of stale coffee from a prior session into the current session. Many grinders have quite a few grams of exchange, even if you purge the grinding chamber prior to pulling a shot. 0.3 grams or less is a very good metric, especially for a grinder in this price range.

Features and Specifications

  • Italian made ItalMill 64mm stainless steel flat burrs. These can be replaced with Mazzer Super Jolly standard or redspeed burrs if you choose to do so.
  • Grinder comes with a 58mm food grade dosing cup. While a portafilter can be used in the portafilter rest, it is best to use the dosing cup, especially if your portafilter isn’t 58mm.
  • Dose into a dosing cup or directly into a portafilter. If you dose into a portafilter it can be messy and it is recommended that you use a dosing funnel.
  • Stepless adjustment with an infinite number of settings between the highest and lowest amount
  • Collar adjustment
  • 250 watt motor
  • 110 volt grinder with correct hertz for USA wiring
  • Weight 15lbs
  • Very compact size that allows this grinder to fit under any kitchen cabinet. Overall footprint is very small compared to other 64mm grinders.
  • 10” L, 5.2” W, 12” H
  • Auto stop after 45 seconds
  • Blow hopper capacity: 50 grams
  • Comes with a blowing hopper and dosing cup
  • One year warranty

How to Use the Turin DF64 ELR

If this grinder is used correctly there is no need to purge the grinder to eliminate retention from prior shots.

  1. Weigh your whole beans with an Acaia Lunar Scale or similar weight measurement device
  2. Pour the beans into the blow hopper, put the bellows in place over the beans
  3. Put dosing cup in place
  4. Turn the grinder on using the switch at the base of the grinder
  5. Let it grind until nothing comes out, the apply rapid downward pressure to the bellows several times until no more grounds exit the chute.
  6. Remove the dosing cup and pour into your portafilter.
  7. The grinder will turn itself off automatically after a preset amount of time. You can allow it to shut itself off or you can push the button again to turn the grinder off.

How to Clean the Turin DF64 ELR Grinder

For best results and to prevent any potential build up in the grinds chute, it is recommended that you do this after every two weeks of use.

  1. Install the bellows to the blow hopper and power on the grinder. While the burrs are spinning push the bellows rapidly several times to clear the grind chamber.
  2. With the grinder unplugged, turn the adjustment disc counter clockwise to remove it. It will take several spins. Once it is removed, lift out the upper burr holder, while being careful not to lose the springs. Make a note of how the springs are positioned so you know how to put back in place.
  3. Clean both burrs with a stiff grinder cleaning brush. Also clean around the burrs as well as the grinds exit chute. You can tip upside down to remove the grounds or use a vacuum. Be careful not to drop or lose the springs!
  4. Reinstall the upper burr holder (make sure the springs are in place). Put the adjustment collar in place, and while pushing down turn it clockwise until it won’t move (don’t overtighten), then move it counterclockwise to about position 10 on the adjustment scale. The grinder is now in roughly the espresso range, but you will need to adjust up or down to dial in the right size for your specific bean. Sometimes small adjustments can make a big difference.

G-iota or Solo or Turin, What is the difference?

They are the same grinder, but the manufacturer allows companies to private label them. We are private labeling them the Turin DF64 here in the USA. The G-iota and Solo are names used in Europe.
