The Buddy Espresso Grinder from Hey Cafe offers excellent performance, an intuitive interface and modern design all at a great price. This is a professional espresso grinder, primarily made for small to medium-sized commercial operations, but would also serve as a solid secondary or decaf grinder in a high-volume environment.

Starting with the all-important internals, the Buddy is sure to impress with its high performance 64mm hardened steel burrs, made in Germany by legendary manufacturers Mahlkönig. These burrs are backed up by a powerful motor, which allows you to grind at up to 3 grams per second. The grinder is designed to run quietly, preserving a peaceful working environment, as well as to retain as little ground coffee as possible, minimising waste and keeping your shots clean and consistent. 

The Buddy has been made with a focus on offering convenience even in high-volume environments, allowing baristas to focus on pulling the best shots they can. The universal portafilter support makes hands-free on demand grinding easy, and the Buddy also supports two programmable recipes through the touch interface. The hopper can hold a whopping 1.5kg of coffee, so there's no need to worry about running out of beans during the morning rush. The spout and flapper on the grinder are both removable, making the regular maintenance necessary to keep a grinder in good shape quick and painless.

All of this functionality comes packed inside a durable cast aluminium body, and the design of the grinder is sure to fit right in to the modern cafe environment. With its wealth of high-end features at a fair price point, the Hey Cafe Buddy Espresso Grinder is a solid choice for all kinds of coffee operations.
