The Professional’s Grinder
3 Options, Always Great Results
The Mythos One is an On Demand grinder dedicated to coffee specialists and enthusiasts alike. Building on the Mythos Basic, Nuova Simonelli’s designers went to the drawing board with professional baristas, to solve some of the largest issues facing coffee shops. Together they came up with the Mythos Clima Pro.
Designed in partnership with four professional baristas and three World Barista Champions; James Hoffmann, Colin Harmon, Fritz Storm and Gwilym Davies.
The Mythos One maintains the sleek structure of the basic model while improving the ascetics and functionality of the machine. The hopper of the machine for example has been slimmed down to make it easier to access, while the front of the machine is exposed and illuminated by LEDs. A design choice which we believe not only improves the appearance of the machine but also allows the barista to visually check the hopper level while grinding.
Throughout our research in developing consistent grinders, one problem keep re-emerging.
The problem: espresso grinders take some time to warm up in the morning and they tend to run hot during peak periods in the day. A temperature variance, which would affect the coffee being ground and in turn the shots being pulled. Realizing this our team of designers and professional baristas set out to determine the ideal grinding temperature for espresso and the best way to maintain that temperature.
The Solution a thermal stability system, The Mythos One. Utilizing a heating element to warm the grinder in the morning and a cooling system to keep it cool during busy hours allowed our team to maintain the temperature between 35 to 45 degrees Celsius. An interval that we found to be the ideal temperature for grinding coffee.
The Result is a machine that requires substantially less adjustments throughout the day, improved espresso shot performance, and more consistent grinds.
The Mythos Plus is an On Demand grinder dedicated to high-volume shops and professionals. Building off of the Mythos basic this model looks to speed up the process of making great coffee, while improving consistency.
Ascetically the Mythos Plus is almost identical to that of the Mythos Basic, with its curved edges and sleek compact design. The main variation being the dynamometric tamper located on the front of the machine. This compact lever has been designed to be ergonomic while remaining compact, to allow it to fit into any setting.
The Mythos Plus’s most notable feature is its dynamometric tamper. A feature
which was designed from the ground up to maintain a quick and consistent tamping pressure. While adjustable, our technicians pre-set the ideal tamping pressure before arriving on your doorstep so you can get busy making that perfect cup.
To use it you simply place the empty porta filter in the machine allow it to dose your coffee, move the porta filter back slightly, and press the lever down till it clicks. At this point you should have a perfectly formed puck inside the porta filter ready to be inserted into the group head.
This technology in combination with one of our volumetric machines not only improve consistency drastically but also can help productivity when a potential customer rush comes through the door.
The Mythos Basic is an On Demand grinder capable of delivering high quality and quantity grinds in seconds. This machine hosts a number of different options and settings to make this machine work for you instead of against you.
The Mythos Basic has a very similar design to that of the Mythos Plus without the tamper. The front of the machine has a cut, polished steal, cover that conceals the micrometer and chamber. All together we believe the design gives this machine a sleek and rounded look.
