Coffee since 1954
The European experience of SANTOS on its local espresso market is the warranty of the best results in terms of quality of grinding. Since 1954, we have
made the grinding disks ourselves for our grinders.
The "silence" grinder gives the best :
● Constant and fine grinding
● Constant portion dispended
● Large hopper
● Easy to adjust (grinding and dosing)
● No "burn coffee" effect while grinding
● Easy to maintain (changing the grinding disks is very easy)
● A commercial, reliable tool (aluminum casting and asynchronous motor)
● Very silent.
Silence : 63dBA
"3 times more silent than the other grinders", that was achieved by our design department - "Silentbloc" mounted motor,
rubber gasket… The noise level is very low.
