New Grinder - La Marzocco Swift Mini

Recommended Posts

Following on from the thread the other day from the Host Milano show, have seen some more info on the LM Swift Mini. 

 

Not really my cup of tea (or coffee) but seems like it can do a lot, Also tamps for you. Didnt see any mention of burrs or size though. But just thought id throw the thread out there. Others can do the donkey work looking for technical data then.

totally understand its big brother in a commercial setting, but don't we love a faff at home?

it takes away so much from the process imho... and if your shot's still a mess, what do you wanna do about it? pull rear lever, swing aside and climb in?

It’s based on or in collaboration with Etzinger. By all accounts they’re very capable grinders (the etz ones I’ve seen) and if it’s like their etzmax it’ll handle single dosing (I’ve not read much on this though).

 

Not sure about the auto tamping, just seems to be another thing that can and will break

Totally agree with the auto tamp feature. You would like to think that most who are looking at this grinder will already have some type of tamper. Would be a bit worrying otherwise.

You make it sound like having more than one tamper is a sin.

That or they're looking to use it as a decaf grinder in a commercial setting.

Would you not still have a tamper lying around?

Haha. Not at all. That's the point I'm making. Everyone who partakes in this forum alone has random tampers lying around.

I found a Torr tamper in my garage a few days ago. Can't even remember having it.

At home it doesn't feel right imho

Yeah I was being cheeky . I’ve got one at the moment (Pullman Big Step), but it doesn’t stop me from thinking of another one...

I've got a Pullman big step, Torr (now I've found it). Some cheap thing and a puqpress. Don't know why I need them all.

Fair point. I suppose it limits the addition of a puqpress. Although. Think I would prefer a separate automated tamper. One less thing to go wrong.

And if it breaks on the grinder is the grinder then out of commission?

but...  there are lmlm owners out there that are not geeks or partners are not geeks and want simplicity. and probabky never go near a forum.

they buy what they perceive as the best brand , that looks good in the kitchen ( probably have Leica sat on a shelf and collect expensive watches :)

this grinder can be sold to them as a simpler plug and play option , walk up , use , pull a 25 second shot...

I don't think it is that easy to pigeonhole people 🤔 but we all have our own perceptions, naturally.

;) Most coffee drinkers in some quarters are potential luddites using undersizede61 machines that look suitable for a dolls house  and taking no notice of progress. They even weigh in and out.

Yep. Don't doubt that. There is a reason LM have made this machine. And they are worth far more than me. So I'm sure they are tight.

Was just my opinion.

Re burrs size 32mm conical ....

Your looking at for figures for this grinder too

Makes the niche and a puqpress seem good value :)
