Among the featured items are our coffee grinders, including the Philos Commercial Grinder and the Kony Sg Grinder. The Philos Grinder boasts a distinctive design designed specifically for light commercial settings, allowing baristas to achieve exceptional results even in compact workspaces. Designed to be user-friendly and low maintenance, it ensures optimal grinding outcomes with a consistent flow of grains into the grinding chamber. On the other hand, the Kony Sg Grinder is equipped with features for a seamless experience. This includes a built-in load cell for precise and consistent dosing, along with Grind Flow Control (GFC) to prevent clumping and reduce electrostatic charges in ground coffee. This grinder is the ideal choice for medium-sized specialty cafes.”
