Owning the Ceado E37SD
Ceado's E37SD is a single-dose grinder capable of rapidly switching between coarse and fine settings with predictable results. It's surprising how mutually exclusive those two things can be. With many grinders, you can have the full grind range or you can have consistent results, but not both. With the E37SD, Ceado has managed to accomplish both. To do this, the E37SD uses a unique design which eschews both the bean hopper and programmable timed dispensing common to grinders of its caliber, opting instead for a strictly manual user experience.
Included with each SD is a suite of barista tools that handles all the blind spots. The RDT (Ross Droplet Technique) sprayer eliminates static while grinding. A WDT (Weiss Distribution Technique) cup makes for easy transfer of grounds to your brewer. The zero-retention bellows removes any remaining coffee from the grinding chamber, and an espresso funnel catches grounds as they fall into your portafilter. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, the Quick Set Gear system allows you to make precise adjustments with ease, and can be pivoted out of the way for wider adjustments to the grind using the adjustment collar. This alone is a big step up from other grinders, which typically don't have the tools to accommodate for the full spectrum of coffee brewing.
On the inside, the grinder houses a 400 W motor and a set of 83 mm OpalGlide coated burrs. This powerhouse combination grinds beans quickly and consistently so you can make rapid adjustments when experimenting with different brew methods. To operate the grinder, simply press the "Start/Stop" button located on the display and the E37SD will do the rest. The SD's E37 genetics also mean that it inherited the Steady Lock and Silent Systems which guarantee silent grinding and a fixed distance between the burrs. Your grind settings will also be retained if you ever need to remove the top burr for cleaning.
We're certainly impressed by the E37SD and we're excited to carry it. However, if you're in need of a high-level grinder, but you want even greater sophistication, the Ceado E37Z Hero offers the next step up.
