Ascaso I-2 Espresso Grinder Doserless
Some of you may be wondering what is different between all these "identical" Ascaso espresso grinders. The I-2 Series from Ascaso is defined by its hardened steel conical burrs. Conical burrs have more surface area in which to cut up the coffee beans and produce a grind that is perfectly suited for espresso. The I-2's stepless grind control sweetens the deal and gives you the highest level of precision achievable on an espresso grinder. And shots pulled from coffee ground on the Ascaso I-2 will absolutely dazzle your taste buds. Ascaso's low speed motor technology will keep your beans from getting burnt in the process, and the pulse grinding feature on the I-2 means that grinding directly into your portafilter is a hassle-free experience. Choose from black or polished aluminum to suit your taste or to match your Ascaso Dream
Simple Pulse Doserless Controls
The Ascaso I-2 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-2'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-2 will immediately shut off.
Commercial Grade Conical Burrs
Ascaso equipped the I-2 grinder with some serious heavy-duty conical burrs. These aren't your mom's burrs that you find in grinders priced at $150 and under. The I-2's burrs are harder and more defined, with a tooth pattern that is incredibly precise and intricate. The resulting grind quality from Ascaso I-2 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.
Stepless Grinder Fineness Settings
We really cannot stress enough how much you will love the Ascaso I-2's precise Micrometric Regulation System (MRS). It takes a little extra time to dial in to the sweet spot for your espresso machine and achieve that elusive "God Shot," but it is time well spent. Stepless grind adjustment works by turning the knob on the right of the unit which turns a worm gear. If you were to picture this in your mind, try to imagine a screw placed right next to large brass gear. In contrast, many other grinders have between 40 or 50 "clicks" from coarse to fine resulting in frustration as many are forced to choose between a little too fine or a little too coarse. So say goodbye to overcompensating for your old grinder's deficiency by fussing with your dosing amounts or tamper pressure.
Large Coffee Bean Hopper
Ascaso built the I-2 grinder with a refreshingly large bean hopper. Holding a whopping 1.3 pounds of coffee beans, the I-2's hopper is twice the size of every other brand in its class. It will hold enough beans to brew 60 shots of espresso and is made of clear, shatter-resistant plastic.
One Year Parts And Labor Warranty
The Ascaso I-2 Grinder comes standard with a one year parts and labor warranty limited to manufacturer's defect or workmanship and is backed by JL Hufford's 30 Day Satisfaction Policy.
