A step-less micrometrical grind adjustment system on the Super Jolly makes this one of the more flexible grinders you can find. That’s because it allows you to make adjustments to the grind fineness that are as minute as you need.
Here’s how it works: instead of having a dial with a specific number of fineness selections to choose from, you can turn the Super Jolly’s adjustment collar to any point. With the restriction of premade options removed, you can make the most minute changes to your grind fineness.
As a result, no matter what type of coffee or blend you’re using, you’ll be able to find a setting that perfectly complements its flavor.
If you look at the front of the Mazzer Super Jolly, you’ll notice that there’s a container on the front panel. This container is called the doser hopper.
Doser grinders have these hoppers as a sort of additional step in the grinding process. Your fresh coffee grounds are stored in the hopper to be dispensed later when you need them.
These types of grinders are excellent for places where large amounts of coffee grounds are consumed in a short amount of time. During your slower periods, you can grind some coffee in advance, then dispense it from the dosing hopper as necessary.
Your time is important, so the last thing you want to do is waste it unnecessarily. Standing in front of your grinder, holding a portafilter basket beneath the chute can take up more time than you have to spare, especially in your business where you could be doing a number of things at any moment.
The right grinder can help you with this with the addition of a portafilter holder like the Super Jolly has. You won’t need to stand in place whenever you use the grinder – just put your portafilter on the fork and let the grinder hold it for you.
There are numerous factors that limit how long you can use your grinder at one time. One such factor is the size of the grinder’s hopper since the grinder can’t run if the hopper is empty.
The Super Jolly’s hopper holds an impressive 2.7 pounds of coffee beans. This is part of what gives it the power necessary for a commercial environment. Since it holds almost three pounds at one time, you can easily grind nonstop during busy periods when you’ve got customers waiting at your counter.
It is true, however, that a larger hopper increases the grinder’s height. If you’re concerned that this means you won’t be able to fit the grinder on your countertop, you have the option of purchasing the mini hopper, which will reduce the grinder’s height to 19 inches.
Another factor that restricts how long your grinder can go for is its internal temperature. Use a grinder too strenuously, and you put it at risk of overheating, which of course leads to the potential of burning your coffee beans.
The Super Jolly’s low blade speed of 1600 RPM is there to prevent this from happening. A low blade speed allows a grinder to run cooler, safeguarding delicate coffee beans from dangerous temperatures and ultimately preserving flavor.
