The MD-series dosing coffee grinders are specifically designed to obtain optimal results using various coffee blends and roasts. As any barista knows, the coffee grinder is perhaps the most important piece of equipment used in preparing a superior quality espresso.
MD dosing coffee grinders are equipped with powerful electric motors. These coffee grinders are designed to operate at low speed in order to avoid an excessive heating of the coffee. This allows the coffee to fully retain its taste and flavor when it is ground.
The Rancilio MD 40 coffee grinder has 1.9" diameter grinding burrs, and will grind up to 8 pounds of coffee per hour. The dose size can be adjusted within the range of 3 to 9 grams (0.1 to 0.3 ounces). The hopper holds just over a pound of coffee beans.
The MD 40 coffee grinder comes as a semiautomatic coffee grinder. In the semiautomatic coffee grinder, the operator chooses when to turn the coffee grinder on and off to fill the dosing chamber.
