The Svart grinder v0.1 from Wilfa (Norway) is now well established in the the market. It was developed between Wilfa & Tim Wendelboe - a man who knows coffee, and whose opinions are widely respected in the speciality coffee industry.


This is the first version of the Svart. It has a faster motor, grinds faster and has a silver body. It comes with a slightly faster RPM motor speed. That means it grinds faster, but with a little more heat.


The Wilfa Svart is a perfect option for anyone looking for a low volume grinder to use at home or in the office. It can grind for a wide variety of brew methods - stovetop, Aeropress, filter / drip coffee machines, Cafetiere, V60, Chemex and most others. (Not espresso though.). It has five different grinding sizes for a range of brewing techniques from AeroPress to French press. Powered by an efficient DC motor that generates minimal heat to preserve the full flavour of the coffee beans.


Domestic electric grinders are often cheap low volume units which produce poor grind quality, while higher price point grinders (£150+) are a step too far for many and don't produce exceptional grind either.


The Wilfa Svart fills that gap. It's the grinder that lots of coffee lovers have been waiting for - a brew method / filter coffee grinder that is fast, consistent, easy to use and doesn't break the bank.


Wilfa grinders come with a standard 1 year back to base warranty including parts and labour.
