The Ceado E7 Semi-Automatic Grinder is a high-capacity grinder designed to operate at low volumes. This unit is approximately 30% quieter than other grinders in its class, thanks to a mechanically suspended motor and advanced sound-proofing features. The Ceado E7 is recommended for light commercial use. It is backed by a three-year limited manufacturer’s parts warranty as well as a lifetime warranty on the doser lever spring.
The E7 uses 64mm flat burrs made of HRC-hardened steel for maximum durability. The burrs have been carefully mounted to be completely parallel to one another and operate at 1400 rpm to deliver uniform results. This grinder is equipped with a 400-watt rectified motor, designed to minimize thermal expansion, so that the burrs are maintained the correct distance for the grind setting selected by the user. Infinitesimal grind adjustments give the barista maximum control over coffee output and an on/off switch lets him/her activate and deactivate grinding processes as necessary to achieve the desired coffee volume. The E7 has reduced pitch thread; its grind settings are exceedingly sensitive and responsive. This model has an integrated stainless steel doser with a conical chute. It doses vertically to ensure coffee grounds fall in the center of the portafilter. The doser can be adjusted in 1/2-gram increments to dispense anywhere from 5.5 to 9 grams of coffee per pull.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The burrs are held in place with three heavy-duty screws, which can be quickly removed for basic cleaning and maintenance. Once the burrs have been cleaned and put back in place, the grinder can be operated right away, without needing to be recalibrated, saving the barista valuable time in a busy environment.
