Why did we make it?
In 2018, Clive Coffee was struggling to figure out how to make it as quick and easy for our consumers to become great baristas. All roads led back to the grinder. Most modern grinders are incredibly hard to dial-in, and frankly, keep dialed in. So, we decided to dial-in all the grinders we sold to one of our favorite roasts, the Verve Bronson. Then we decided to dial in all the tampers from Saint Anthony Industries. Our customers loved it and loved us for doing it. But it still wasn’t enough...
As the only coffee retailer with an R&D department and an in-house brand, LUCCA, we had the opportunity to work on the core of the problem. Can a grinder dial itself in?
Fast forward 18 months and we are now releasing our first grinder, the LUCCA Atom 65. Our patent-pending TrueGrind system which ensures the grinder stays dialed in is an industry first. The mechanism we invented to accurately and consistently measure the distance between the burrs produces a perfect grind every time. As we build out a library of pre-calibrated coffees from some of our favorite roasters, our consumers will have the opportunity to try coffees from all over the world as the roasters intended. Perfect recipes, perfect shots from the second you open a bag.
All because we want people to smile the first time they pull a shot, and frankly every time they do. You shouldn’t have to be a professional barista to have coffee like this. We can teach you that over time, with great espresso along the way.
How did we make it?
We studied what is and isn’t important when it comes to grinding. There is a lot of misinformation out there about what affects a grind. So we started with a thousand variables that we think could matter, and we ended up with 5 that actually do. There will always be variations from machine to machine, but the LUCCA Atom 65 is the most consistent grinder we have ever used. It also helps if you have dialed in thousands of grinders for customers.
But, to be honest, a lot of failures. Coffee isn’t easy.
