San Marco SM92 Instant (on demand) Coffee Grinder


Trust Badge

The La San Marco SM SMART INSTANT Series has a range of products for instant grinding, with sophisticated technology and innovative design concepts, to offer the highest quality for each individual coffee shot. With a wide choice of colors, the range can bematched perfectly to all La San Marco coffee machines as well as others.

The smart technology designed and developed in the R&D department of La San Marco which, equipped with two infra-red sensors and specific detection software, automatically measures the ground coffee according to the porta filter basket used, without needing the grinder operator to select any settings. All Smart technology grinders have the new "hands free" option as a standard feature, which supports the porta filter basket during grinding and therefore leaves the grinder operator with their hands free. 

System created by La San Marco which enables the basket to be held in place by itself during the coffee grinding process, therefore leaving the machine user's hands free. The Hands Free System comes with the series of SMART INSTANT grinders (on demand grinding that automatically recognises baskets with 1 or 2 spouts).

This grinder has the NEW CENTESIMAL adjustment ring which enables more precise adjustments compared with previous models, in order to match the particle size of the ground coffee to the humidity of the atmosphere, to the coffee blend and to the type of grinder.  Aesthetically the new centesimal ring enables the control settings to be read more easily through intuitive labelling which indicates the correct direction with an arrow to regulate the grinding particle sizes.  Technically, the new system allows for the distance between the burrs to be adjusted with an accuracy of one hundredth of a millimetre, thus enabling a more efficient extraction of the volatile elements and in turn obtain coffee with a superior aromatic character.
