After extensive research to find a single dose grinder that offers stepless adjustment, low retention and at such an affordable price… We think The Solo Espresso Grinder is the answer!
The Solo has 64mm flat Italmill hardened steel burrs as standard, the retention figures we obtained are very low with total complete exchange at around 1 gram. The Solo comes with a transparent cup which fits exactly into a 58mm portafilter handle avoiding any spillage, the solo 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 the Solo can accommodate approximately a total capacity of 80 grams with 30 grams in the chamber and 50 grams in the bellows.
