Low Retention Single Dosing
The uniquely designed burr chamber allows coffee to be quickly and efficiently, and is very low retention even without the use of bellows. With many other single dose grinders, there is a decent amount that remains in the chamber and has to be removed by using a bellows. With the DF83, during numerous tests the amount that remains behind without bellows is very minimal. We do still recommend using the bellows at the end of each grind session with the burrs still spinning in order to keep the burr chamber as clean as possible at all times, but it usually won’t remove much.
83mm Stainless Steel Flat Burrs or SSP HU Burrs
Stainless steel burrs are the standard design, but we have the option to upgrade to SSP HU burrs. The SSP HU Espresso burrs are best for darker / medium roasts and for more body.
The DF83 can also be used with a hopper if you prefer not to single dose or if you have a larger amount of coffee you want to grind, such as for cold brew or if you want to use this grinder in your business environment.
Wave Spring Washer
Unlike the DF64 which uses springs to hold the top burr carrier in place, the Turin DF83 uses a wave spring washer. While the springs work for the narrower DF64, the wave spring washer design works better for the wider DF83. With the wave spring washer design, taking the top burr off can be done by simply unscrewing the top burr collar.
Painted Aluminum Body
For a premium look and feel, the high quality metal body of the DF83 is beautifully painted in either a black or white finish. The finish is similar to the design of the Turin DF64E or DF64P, but is different from the Turin DF64 original, which is vinyl wrapped aluminum.
Holder for Dosing Cup or Portafilter
As with all the Turin DF64 variations, the Turin DF83 will hold a dosing cup, or a 58mm portafilter. The dosing cup is a durable plastic, but there is also a metal dosing cup option.
The Turin DF83 is designed in house by the owner of the manufacturing company and is an original design. The burr chamber is uniquely designed to have as little retention as possible.
All Purpose Grinder
Being an all purpose grinder, you will be able to grind beans for a wide range of different brewing methods, from espresso to French Press.
There are no steps in the adjustment mechanism of the DF83, which means you will have an infinite number of settings between the largest and smallest settings, allowing you to fine tune your grind size as much as you want to.
Metal Dosing Collar
In order to prevent the grinder from making a mess and getting coffee all over the place, the grinder includes a metal dosing cup collar. It can also be flipped over and used with a 58mm portafilter if you prefer to grind right into your portafilter.
