SMALL AND CONSISTENT
Fred is a set of home grinders which are guaranteed to grind coffee to a fine consistency and lead to consistent results year after year. The conical steel burrs and the stepped or micrometric adjuster allow a fine grinding, which is vital for extracting the rich coffee oils and produce real espresso. Last but not least, the very compact size make Fred the ideal choice for home grinding.
Professional build quality
All LELIT grinders come with steel burrs, to grind coffee to a fine consistency, and full stainless steel body, to ensure a long service life.
Stepped or Micrometric Adjustment
The micro-metric adjuster allows for very small adjustments to be made to the grind size with a relatively large turn of the adjusting knob. This give the barista very good control of the grind size. We recommend the MicroMetric option if the grinder is to be used primarily for espresso. If the grinder is routinely used for plunger and espresso, the standard stepped adjustment makes it easier to quickly change the grind settings.

1. Quality steel materials, not plastic. Built to last. No sticky coffee powder build-up on plastic (due to static electricity).
2. Superior (conical) fine grind for espresso. Variable settings best for micro-tuning between fine grinds, not fine to coarse.
3.Bought to replace a very similar Italian made Macinacaffe conical grinder that lasted 25 years.
4. All this quality in an appealing and tidily small package.
5. I could find nothing else of this quality at this price.
NOTE: If your portafilter (like mine) proves too large to fit under spout without spillage, simply grind portions into another container & spoon from there.
