Completely redesigned in a shapely new body and improved in almost every way, this latest version of semi-commercial grinder by Cunill of Spain is a dependable, compact grinder designed with the demanding home barista or small restaurant owner in mind, but don't let its relatively compact size fool you. The heavy-duty motor, condenser, and grinding burrs are the same sturdy components found in Cunill's acclaimed line of commercial grinders sold to coffee bars around the world.

The large, 60mm hardened steel flat burrs can be adjusted with micrometric precision to any grind thickness you wish, from extra fine powder for Turkish coffee to extra coarse for French presses. The new Tranquilo runs quieter than ever at just 76 dB and includes a self-resetting thermal sensor on the motor to avoid overheating. The powerful, 270-watts motor spins at just 1600 rpm, minimizing heat applied to the coffee during the grinding cycle. Compare those specs to the competition costing twice as much!

Cunill Tranquilo comes in both doserless - with electronic timer controlling each grinding cycle - or traditional version with doser and built-in coffee tamper (click on inset pictures to enlarge / view both models).

In the doserless model an electronic timer, easily adjustable by the operator, allows consistent portion control between 5 and 12 grams of coffee directly into the portafilter of an espresso machine through a completely accessible feeder / chute, now redesigned to virtually eliminate the collection of ground coffee residues. This allows the user to grind and dispense only the quantity of coffee necessary at the time, maximizing freshness, virtually eliminating ground coffee waste and making the use of measuring scoops or lever dispensers unnecessary. The redesigned fork for the portafilter can now be removed without any tools, allowing this grinder to dispense coffee directly into larger brewing vessels, such as a French Press pot.

In models with doser, ground coffee is dispensed in a doser, with a capacity of approximately 12 oz of ground coffee and an adjustable throw (with visual scale) to dispense as little as 5 or as many as 10 grams per pull. Doser includes a clever flip style tamper for both 53mm and 58mm portafilters, RH ergonomic pull handle, elegant clear housing for easier visual check of coffee left in the doser, and Cunill's exclusive Direct Intake guide system to engage the portafilter against the doser and eliminate ground coffee spills when dispensing into the filter basket.

Body made of attractive, durable and scratch-proof black ABS, molded in one single piece to minimize vibrations and wear. The completely new, 1.1-lb capacity whole beans hopper in both versions is now made of virtually indestructible Copolyester, it snaps in place in seconds and is dishwasher safe to temperatures up to 194°F.

Minor assembly required. Includes operating manual. 110-120 volts only. One-year warranty on parts and labor, 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Made in Spain.

Tranquilo is also available in an elegant, chrome-plated silver finish.
