LX Edison 65 SD Overview
The LX Edison 65 SD breathes new life into the world of single-dosing grinders as a made-in-Italy alternative to mass market offerings. With a set of 65mm flat steel burrs and a dedicated single dose hopper and bellows, the Edison 65 SD is optimized for preparing a single coffee at a time with minimal retention. Housed entirely in metal and featuring a glass touch display, single-dosing has never looked so good.
Features and Performance
Core to the LX series of grinders is a universal all-metal housing and crystal-clear glass touch display. The Edison 65 SD has a set of 65mm burrs and a 320W motor to grind coffee at 1,650RPM for an output between 2.3-2.8g/sec depending on grind fineness. Grinding noise is significantly reduced to roughly 60db via the inclusion of silent technology, and static and clumps are eliminated from ground coffee via the ACE System (Anti Clumps & Electrostaticity).
Grind adjustment is managed by the stepless micrometric regulation system, allowing users to to make incredibly precise adjustments with the comfortable knob to the right of the display. Because the top burr is stationary, when opening the Edison 65 SD for regular maintenance, your grind setting is preserved. This eliminates the need for dialing your grinder back in. Single and double doses can be programmed within 1/10th of a second via the touch display; you can also lock your doses to prevent accidental changes as well as grind continuously using the manual “Extra Dose” mode.
The Edison 65 SD has several unique features that are dedicated to improving the workflow of single-dose coffee preparation. In lieu of a traditional bean hopper, the Edison 65 SD ships with a 45g single-dose hopper with a vented shutter and a removable bellows attachment. The bellows fit between the hopper and its lid and can be used to push any remaining coffee out of the grinding chamber. Also included is an all-purpose fork that can hold the included 45g dosing cup and portafilters interchangeably.
Why You Should Get It
The explosion of interest in single-dose grinders introduced a high degree of sameness from manufacturers scrambling to capitalize on the trend. Fortunately, the Edison 65 SD retains its identity as a high-concept Italian grinder with its all-metal housing and glass display. Equipped with a set of 65mm burrs, single-dose hopper and bellows, an adjustable all-in-one fork for both portafilters, dosing cups, and a 45g cup standard in the box, the LX Edison 65 SD goes all-in as the last single-dose grinder you’ll ever have to buy.
