Product Description


    If you are looking for compact espresso grinder that offers a precise and consistent grind, but is also quiet and compact, then you need the Nuova Simonelli MCI. Available with a lovely chrome-plated face and polished stainless steel body, the Nuova Simonelli MCI has all of the features of a cafe style commercial espresso burr grinder, but it is conveniently sized for both home and small cafe use. The MCI's 150 watt motor, while powerful, is very quiet at 73 decibels, so it won't jolt your family out of bed in the morning. The stepless grind adjustment on the MCI means that each turn of the dial changes your grind setting by just a tiny fraction to give you the key building block for the "God Shot" of espresso. The chrome plated doserless chute dispenses espresso directly into your portafilter for less waste.

    Doserless Semi-Commercial Espresso Grinder
    Nuova Simonelli built the MCI grinder to be powerful enough for a coffee shop, yet small enough for a home or office. Simply grind the desired amount of espresso powder (about 7 to 8 seconds per shot) directly into your portafilter. With the main switch on, simply place your portafilter beneath the chrome plated chute and into the switch plate to begin the grinding. The portafilter rest beneath the doser is height-adjustable to accommodate any variety of portafilters. The Nuova Simonelli MCI saves on wasted espresso grounds compared to grinders with built-in dosers.

    Micrometric Stepless Grind Adjustment
    Espresso connoisseurs know that their high-end espresso machine is useless without properly ground espresso beans. The Nuova Simonelli MCI will deliver precision-ground espresso powder that will satisfy even the most demanding barista. It does this with not only quality grinding burrs and motor, but also with its stepless grind settings. Most grinders force you to change the grind setting one click at a time. While the difference in fineness is small, there is still a gap which your perfect shot of espresso could reside. With stepless (or micro-metric) adjustment, there are no leaps from setting to setting. Simply turn the micro-metric adjustment knob, and your Nuova MCI will change the grind setting very slowly and in tiny increments. For this reason, the Nuova Simonelli is best used as strictly an espresso grinder, although it can grind from Turkish to French Press.

    Commercial Grade Steel Grinding Burrs
    Nuova Simonelli knows that espresso machines are finicky when it comes to not only the fineness of the grind, but also the consistency. To tackle these demands, the MCI employs 50 mm hardened steel grinding burrs. Theses burrs are sharp and durable and can withstand heavy use. The engineers at Nuova Simonelli balance and calibrate the burr plates with incredible precision. The top burr is mounted to the metal cover plate at the top of the grinder. The bottom burr is directly fixed to the motor drive shaft and is adjusted with the step-less knob at the top left of the unit.

    Heavy-Duty Construction
    The body of the Nuova Simonelli MCI grinder is built from solid piece of cast metal for the face that has been treated to resist corrosion. It is then chrome plated for a beautiful finish. The back and sides of the MCI is a stamped plate of stainless steel that is polished to a high gloss shine. Beneath the durable, and heavy, metal exterior lies the heart of the beast: a 150 Watt direct drive motor. It spins at about 1400 RPM to deliver about 1 gram per second of perfect espresso powder. The bean hopper on top is easily lifted off even with coffee beans still inside. It has a sliding guard on the bottom to prevent the beans from falling out. Even though the hopper will hold a half pound of beans, it remains compact to keep the overall height of the Nuova Simonelli MCI under 12 and a half inches.
