Those of you who "know your grinder parts" can see if you can spot anything in the one minute long teaser video - which only shows a small part of a grind-on-demand grinder.
The hopper closeup looks like a Mazzer Mini short hopper to me.

My first thoughts were Mythos and it's way to big for a home.

I think Etzinger etzMax/Swift Mini have a similar hopper to the one shown in the video.

Etzinger GBW would be real attractive with some LM styling..

When LM hinted to me this was coming they said it was being designed in house and would be built in house or at least to their specs.

What we know:

LM currently sells a single rebadged Mazzer, as well as several unbadged Mazzers. (Although, I'm not sure who makes the swift?).

@10 sec, we see a cafe
@17 sec, we see a really wide and short hopper, with a relatively very large anti-popcorn shield.
@25 sec, we see a home, with a very angular looking hopper
@33 sec, we see a metallic portafilter holder, and relatively slow grinding

What we also have seen: in 2020, LM debuted the Swift Mini, which looks like the grinder @ 25 sec.

see: ... -marzocco/ La Marzocco Swift Mini with Etzinger grind mechanism

There was also a prototype "Swan" from a press release (scroll to bottom): ... wift-mini/

My guess is: re-introduction of something similar to the Swift Mini or Swan by Etzinger, and a new line of Mazzer rebadges (matching colors).

A friend of mine is *really* hoping for grind by weight. As far as I can tell, it's not a Eureka, Compak, or Mahlkönig. Mazzer doesn't do much high tech from what I know. It definitely looks like the grinding stops, and then he picks up the portafilter, so I'm going to say yes to GBW.

I guess there is a possibility of Fiorenzato, they also have pretty large anti-popcorn devices, and I know they sell white-labeled ones under Sanremo. I'm still going with Etzinger.

Mazzer doesn't do high tech?! You have some homework to do :)

Genuinely curious!

I was under the impression that Mazzer was sort of "behind" r/e high tech for touch screens, iot connections, grind by weight, etc. Though I will admit, I've only looked at their "affordable" (sub $1500) offerings.

To be clear, I don't think any of these things are better, but feel like something LM and others are starting to stuff in given current trends

The Swift Mini has a lock-in PF station for very hit or miss autotamping. The video shows a conventional on demand grinder.
