The Cutting Edge
Building on the foundation of the 804, the Ditting 807 Lab Sweet has retained the most significant features of its past iteration while upgrading to a modern aesthetic. Several further upgrades can also be found on the 807 Lab Sweet, such as the change to an electric switch instead an analog-style rocker, a safety mechanism that disallows use when the hopper is removed, and dual-cooling fans to draw heat away from the burrs. Like other grinders in Ditting's 807 line, the Lab Sweet is still capable of bulk grinding, but single-dose grinding is where this machine truly shines.
A Swift Solution
Ditting may have reimagined the Lab Sweet in many regards, but it remains a superb single-dosing grinder at heart. The 807 Lab Sweet also features the ability to grind from Turkish to cold brew settings by way of an easy-to-read, stepless adjustment dial. With close to zero retention, the Lab Sweet is at home in any environment, be it roasting and cupping facilities to medium and high-volume cafes. Thanks to the nearly non-existent retention of coffee grounds, the concern regarding cross-contamination is no longer an issue, and with the ability to grind up to two pounds per minute, your workflow is sure to be simplified and swift.
Sweet & Balanced Extractions
While the Lab Sweet is similar in many regards to the other offerings in Ditting's 807 line, it stands apart in a compelling way. The Lab Sweet features 80mm premium cast steel burrs with special grinding teeth geometry that ensure optimal particle size and uniformity for any grind setting. The outcome is a more uniform particle size and shape, resulting in a more viscous brew that emphasizes balance and increased sweetness in the cup. A folding, adjustable height platform and an included grounds catch cup simplify your workflow further, allowing for a hands-free grinding experience. If using the Lab Sweet for espresso, email and ask us to include a pair of extra E80 flappers free of charge. This will help optimize the grounds and flow dynamics for more traditional 1:2-ratio style espresso.
“It's a fantastic experience; it's the gold standard for us to compare with all other grinders we use. Handy and easy to use. Also, a lot of guests are interested because of the modern appearance. Convenient to use in any place , even in pop ups.”
—Ethica Coffee Roasters
“So how does the coffee taste? The proof is in the pudding: in 14 years, we’ve had 13 finalists and 8 winning coffees in the Good Food Awards, making us one of the most award-winning roasters in the country. Separately, we’re honored to have received Food & Wine Magazine’s “Best Coffee in Oregon” award in 2018 and 2022. We couldn’t accomplish this without the assistance from coffee industry titans like Ditting, Probat, Baratza, Fetco, Mazzer, and La Marzocco.”
—Noble Coffee Roasters
"It’s been a real treat - the speed, the consistency of grind and the adjustability. I hope to have this as our in-office grinder and offer it as our baseline grinder suggestion to our new cafe accounts moving forward. A/B testing the Lab Sweet vs our Baratza Encore using our Curtis brewer was eye opening — I love my encore for home use but this Lab Sweet really puts it in its place."

Is It Always Better to Grind Fresh?
When you come across rules like these, do you ever find yourself asking, "Says who?" From water temperature ("off boil") to tamping pressure (30 pounds), these fuzzy standards are everywhere, yet widely accepted.
Coffee Shop Locations: Problems to Avoid
The statistic that 90% of restaurants, a category that includes coffee shops, cafÃ©s, and similar establishments, fail in the first year of business is a pervasive myth. In reality, according to a study from researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, the number is probably much closer to 17%...
