host milan innovation gallery

November 27, 2019 in New Zealand

In October at Host Milan, an international hospitality trade fair in Italy, we unveiled our  Innovation Gallery showcasing newly released products coming soon to New Zealand — the “Today” Gallery, showcasing final designs available for order, and the “Tomorrow” and “Future” Galleries, showcasing prototypes to be released. We also announced our return to the grinder industry with the Swift Mini and the Swan grinders.

a revolution in grinding

The Swift Mini grinder has been designed for the home and office markets. For these people, the limitations of current espresso grinders have created a barrier to entry. Only the most passionate few were able to tame the complexities of grinding, dosing, and tamping coffee. People were being relegated to pre-packaged espresso pods, sacrificing quality for ease of use. The Swift Mini removes the complexities of preparation, allowing the focus to return to the final cup, instead of the process.

The Swan grinder has been designed for the coffee bar or cafe. The barista has had to work around the limitations of their grinding equipment; inconsistent dosing, heat, clumping, and retention. We have focused on solving these problems in new and unique ways to allow the work of the farmer, roaster, and barista to take centre stage.

The Swift Mini grinds, doses, and tamps, with the push of a single button. Grinding, dosing, and tamping have long been regarded as difficult steps in espresso preparation. This eliminates the need for additional tools and prevents wasting coffee. With the Swift Mini cafè quality espresso can now be achieved anywhere by anyone. In addition the Swift Mini can quickly and easily function as an on demand filter coffee grinder. In this way it is possible to grind for single espresso, or for filter brewing method.
