Welcome to the Family
While HeyCafe may be a newer and lesser-known name in the world of commercial espresso grinders, it shares a parent company with other coffee grinders that sit at the very top of their class. Names like Anfim, Ditting, and Mahlkonig are sister companies of HeyCafe under the Hemro parent brand. With these sitting at its side, you can expect the very same reliability and efficiency from the HeyCafe HC-600 2.0 On-Demand espresso grinder that the coffee world has come to know and love from its siblings. However, the HC-600 2.0 has its own unique features, and is certainly capable of standing on its own two feet.
A Closer Look
When taking a look at the internal components of the HeyCafe HC-600 2.0 On-Demand espresso grinder, you’ll find 64mm burrs made of flat, hardened steel. These burrs has a massive lifespan of 3300+ pounds of ground coffee and offer tremendous particle uniformity to ensure that you won’t need to dial-in your espresso again and again, saving time and precious coffee. The cast aluminum material that makes up the body of the grinder aides in this by way of optimizing heat transfer away from the coffee grounds, keeping the burrs from overheating and changing the size of the coffee particles. A vertical grounds chute helps to keep retention to an absolute minimum and delivers consistency, dose after dose. Finally, universal portafilter forks allow for hands-free grinding while you focus on other tasks.
Consistency On Demand
One of the most useful and practical features found on the HeyCafe HC-600 2.0 On-Demand espresso grinder is the multiple shot recipe option that can be programmed by 1/10 of a second. This allows for you to set up single, double, and triple shot doses and still have the freedom to manually pulse when necessary. A stepless collar is utilized for the grind adjustment mechanism on the HC-600 2.0, ensuring just the right grind size for your environment. Each shot is ground at around 3 grams per second, making the HC-600 2.0 perfect for utilizing as a single-origin grinder, a decaf espresso grinder, or even a primary grinder for lower volume businesses such as pop-ups and in restaurant atmospheres.
