A winning combination: Fiorenzato F83 XGI Pro GBW Grinder & Puqpress M4
As industry and artisan alike continue to refine the qualitative elements of great coffee, the abundance of highly specialised devices continues to grow as well, seeking to meet the ever-increasing, exacting standards for quality coffee flavour.
These devices are often highly-specialised for their specific role the coffee process, and professionals take great care to select the right machine for the job. However, at times this singular perfection can see devices struggle to integrate seamlessly within the coffee-making process, and so compatibility is something of a boon for the dedicated barista, within their working day.
With this in mind, it is exciting to see the industry take on these concerns, as compatibility is more frequently becoming integrated within the continuing development of new devices and technologies; nonesuch better example of this than the Puqpress M4’s compatibility with the Fiorenzato F64 & F83 GBW grinders.
Established way back in 1936, Fiorenzato are well-known and respected within the coffee industry, and not just for their heritage; Fiorenzato’s dedication in applying their decades of experience to producing new and cutting-edge developments keeps them at the forefront of high-quality coffee grinding. As GBW (grind-by-weight) quickly becomes the standard for grinders, Fiorenzato is already ahead of the curve, and continues to stay out in front with their new XGI “smart” technology that offers gram-based weighing of coffee; its integrated software records and processes data, ensuring every single dose of blend consistently contains the exact amount of coffee as per the user input, ensuring your recipes remain perfect – every time.
This singular dedication to the perfection of their craft already makes Fiorenzato a popular choice amongst artisans and industry professionals, even before the added compatibility with the equally revered Puqpress automatic tampers…
The Puqpress line of automatic tampers is a staple amongst cafes; any romance for hand-tamping is eschewed by professionals for its unequalled precise and level, non-stick tamping, which focuses on consistent optimal flavour extraction. Further to this, their ‘do more, waste less’ approach is readily welcomed by baristas, who appreciate the hands-free tamping that, in addition to ensuring consistency, speeds up workflow and spares them the very real damage to shoulders and wrists, that can come from the repetitive tamping by hand, several hundred times a day.
The precise automation of Puqpress not only prevents strain and pain, it ensures consistency and enables the creativity and craftsmanship of the barista, for utmost customer satisfaction.
So, when two leaders of their fields come together in harmonious compatibility, the excitement is understandable, and the results speak for themselves – coffee perfection!
The key word in the compatibility of a Fiorenzato grinder and the Puqpress M4 is seamless – because that’s precisely what it is, in every sense. It’s not just the vertical integration that marries them perfectly, and minimizes workstation surface area; it’s also the seamless integration of workflow, which not only affords baristas precious seconds between tasks, but also sees the exacting precision of a Fiorenzato grind instantly carried forward, and sealed within the Puqpress’ automated tamping, with adjustable pressures between 10-30kg! Altogether, this not only extracts optimal quality coffee flavour from a grind, it ensures consistent extraction of said coffee flavour, every time.
This type of compatibility between devices is a dream come true for baristas, who no longer have to compromise their process by accommodating highly individualistic devices, and can instead work with devices that integrate with one another to complement the extraction process. It’s heartening to see the commitment to coffee quality in such innovative integration, especially with such outstanding results.
One hopes the ongoing success of the Fiorenzato and Puqpress pairing will encourage further integration in throughout the industry and if so, we can only wonder at the potential of future developments!
