The La Marzocco Swift Grinder Has No Equals

The La Marzocco Swift is the only grinder that grinds, doses and tamps.

Making great espresso is really all about consistency. Having managed and worked in busy cafes, I understand how hard it was to make a consistent espresso. The true way to measure consistency when brewing an espresso, is to time it. Every good café has an ideal shot time it is trying to achieve. However all the factors that go into crafting an espresso are hard to repeat when many different individuals are involved. Each person may dose the coffee differently or may tamp a little differently. A café owner may find it hard to consistently monitor and to keep all his employees brewing consistent shots because of the human factor. Everyone is different.

The La Marzocco Swift Grinder can perform all the processes that are prone to human error. It will dose the amount of coffee exactly and precisely for each and every shot. As well as tamp with the precision of a machine. It was designed to tamp the grinds with exactly the same pressure every time. It has adjustable grind settings and two hoppers for your coffee. The engineering on the machine is unique,as it is still the only grinder able to perform all of these functions quickly. It is interesting how it is designed; but it is not important to understand how it works; only that it does.

Why choose this grinder?

You can easily create consistent shots with the Swift grinder. You simply lock your portafilter into the grinder, push a button and the machine will grind, dispense and tamp a shot with consistency and precision. Remove the handle, lock it into your espresso machine and your shot is all ready to be brewed.

You may also want to look at this grinder as a way to cut down on waste. The one thing you will quickly notice is how fast the Swift performs these tasks and also how neatly it does its job. You will not see grinds all around the grinder, as you would see in many busy coffee shops. A very busy café could waste up to several pounds of coffee a month when using traditional grinders and methods.

Who should buy this grinder?

This is a pretty easy question to answer. It should be purchased by anyone who

  1. Wants to serve more consistent shots
  2. Has many different employees working in one shop
  3. Has a café where the training program may need some refinement
  4. Looking to streamline operations and increase quality.

The La Marzocco is the only grinder in the world that can grind, dose and tamp. It definitely is worth looking into. It is a tool that will benefit the business and its customers.
