CHOOSE YOUR BURRS
We offer a range of burrs for the DF64 grinder. They come standard with stainless steel burrs or titanium coated burrs which are installed at the factory, but they can be upgraded to SSP multipurpose (unimodal)and SSP High Uniformity (Espresso). Each burr set gives a little bit different flavor nuance. While the stainless steel and titanium burrs are good burrs, the SSP burrs are the industry standard for an outstanding burr. They are precision engineered and coated with a very long-lasting finish that helps them stay sharp for a long, long time. If you don’t have an accidently stone in your coffee that can chip the burrs, the SSP burrs can last sharp for thousands of pounds of coffee. SSP multipurpose give a lot of clarity and work well for light and medium roast. SSP High Uniformity work best for more body and tend to work best for espresso and darker roasted coffee as well as for milk-based espresso drinks.
The DF64 is a stepless adjustment grinder with an infinite number of settings between the highest and lowest settings on the grinder. This allows the user to fine tune the grind size to precisely the best grind size for each given coffee. The adjustment dial has labels for different types of coffees to make it easier to find the correct grind size, but those are for reference only and the grind size for every coffee bean can be fine-tuned to both the individual bean attributes as well as the brew method.
IMPORTANT USAGE WARNING
Since the DF64 is a flat burr grinder it is important to adjust the grind size WHILE the burrs are spinning and the grinder is on. Failing to do this can create clogging and jamming issues. It is also important to always pump the bellows firmly at the end of each grind session WHILE the grinder is still on. This will keep the grind chamber nice and clean and prevent build up of coffee oils in the grind chamber. If you pump the bellows after the burrs have stopped spinning, the sweepers inside of the chamber will block some coffee from exiting.

The DF64 has a 64mm flat Italmill hardened steel burrs as standard, the retention figures we obtained are very low with total complete exchange at around 1 gram. This grinder comes with a transparent cup which fits exactly into a 58mm portafilter handle avoiding any spillage, and will also hold a portafilter handle hands free.
EASY TO USE: Large adjustment dial, it makes it easy to go from the fine to coarse settings. Top burr can be removed without tools for exchange clean, although with such a low retention, this is not necessary. The bellows make sure any remaining coffee grounds are extracted from the grinder. Although principally a single dose grinder, it can accommodate approximately a total capacity of 80 grams with 30 grams in the chamber and 50 grams in the bellows.
