PRO BARISTA G-MICRON DIGIT - BLACK
PREORDER NOW AND DELIVERY IN OCTOBER
The G-micron Digit is an electronic dosing variant that allows users to use preset dosing buttons for single or double shots. It also has a button that allows users to dose manually. While single-shot dosing has become very popular, there are customers who prefer not to hassle with regularly weighing beans, but want the option of single-shot dosing when they have more time. If this describes you, this might be the perfect grinder for you. Combined with time dosing, it has a hopper that can hold enough beans to make multiple drinks without having to refill the hopper each time. But if you want to switch to single dosing, the hopper can be removed and replaced with a bellows and lid for single dosing.
The G-micron Digit has a more limited adjustment mechanism compared to the original Giota, which is why we recommend the G-micron and G-micron Digit for espresso only, while the Giota can be used for a wide range of coffees.
The G-micron digit comes standard with 64mm DLC coating burrs that provide good results out of the box and for most people these will work well and provide extraction flavor that most people are happy with. But for those individuals that want to have the best flavor possible we do offer the grinder with optional burr upgrade options made by SSP. SSP burrs are known for being phenomenal burrs and many consider them to be the best burrs on the market today.
The G-micron digit comes standard with a bellows. For those who wish to single dose, the bellows will help remove any retained grinds from between the burrs and the burr chamber. If you decide to use the grinder for single dosing, we recommend that you pump the bellows firmly at the end of each grind session WHILE the grinder is on and the burrs and still spinning.
Three Dosing Options
The G-micron digit has three electronic dosing options, one for a single dose, one for a double dose and one for manual dosing (with no timer). The buttons are built into an attractive digital interface that has a simple design with large digital timer that can be easily monitored. The timed dosing buttons can be easily programmed to modify the amount of time the grinder runs when each button is pressed.
Lower Burr Adjustment
The grinder adjustment is at the bottom of the grinder and adjusts the bottom (spinning) burr for a more stable grind size adjustment. This keeps the distance between the burrs very steady while coffee is being ground. It also allows the burr chamber to be cleaned without losing your grind size setting.
Metal Base and Metal Body
Like the Giota original, the G-micron and G-micron digit has a sturdy, essentially all metal design. The base is metal and has a built in switch on the right side of the grinder base, compared to the Giota which has a switch under the portafilter rest.
The G-micron digit has a very compact design that allows it to easily fit in most kitchens and under most cabinets. It is only 190mm wide, 120mm deep, and 420mm tall with the hopper! If you single dose and don't use the hopper, that reduces the height to only 292mm! This makes it more compact that almost all grinders on the market with 64mm burrs.
Powerful 250 Watt Motor
If a grinder has a motor that is too weak it can overheat during operation or can cause additional friction during the grinding session with can create particle size distribution issues as well as flavor issues. With a 250 watt motor, the G-micron digit has the power it needs to provide great results. The motors have proven to be very reliable over time.
The grinder can be used with the included food grade dosing cup or can be used with a 58mm portafilter that can also fit into the portafilter res
