- No Retention (Single Dose)
Did you know that coffee grounds stuck in the nooks and crannies of your grinder stale over time, and create unappetising flavours in your next cup of coffee? Thankfully, the Giota grinder has a streamlined design where coffee grounds fall out smoothly, translating to dust-like amounts of grounds left in your grinder. This ensures that you never have to waste coffee purging old grounds or banging the grinder in all directions, leaving you less frustrated and with several extra doses from your bag of coffee! Most importantly, you get to taste the optimal flavour in your coffee.
The Giota is a sturdy and reliable grinder built with pricey and professional parts. It is fitted with 64MM ITALMILL flat burrs made in Italy for fluffy durable burrs. Titanium-coated ITALMILL burrs also provide longer-lasting burr strength (titanium is 4 times more durable than steel). Furthermore, Giota Grinders have a larger motor (two-thirds the size of its casing), as compared to the smaller substandard motors seen inside the Niche Zero. Undoubtedly, at its economical price point, it is impressive to see such quality parts being used.
The Giota grinds fast compared to any of its competition in the 64mm and below range due to its powerful motor. For a benchmark, it grinds faster than the Niche Zero.
- Flat Burrs
Majority of espresso drinkers prefer flat burrs because you get to taste more flavour and depth in your coffee as compared to conical burrs. Well, the debate goes on, and to each their own.

With the feature of a rubber bellow top, you can push air into the burrs and out of the grounds chute. This serves as an additional detail, on top of its streamlined design, to ensure minimal retention of grounds.Ability to grind a range of consistent espresso, filter & coarse grindThe Giota Grinder is of high-quality and high-performance for home coffee enthusiasts who want to try different coffee brewing methods: Espresso, V60 Filter and Coarse Cold brew!
