New commercial flat burr grinder.

Appears to have its origins in Australia with some Chinese connection.

Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

Is that pre-grinding then dosing on demand? Glad that can be turned off!

Always nice to see something new in grinders, I'm curious how those shots pull & taste of course.

Really cool design! I was thinking that it probably wouldn't work for home use because it's grinding for the next shot, then he switched it to on demand mode and answered my skepticism almost immediately

For a very high volume shop it will be the fastest possible grinder. Pre-grinds one shot at a time and auto doses by volume. Volume meaning it over fills the portafilter and then wipes the top level leaving the remainder for the next shot. Not really suitable as a home grinder.

I believe the Azkoyen Capriccio grinder used a similar concept.

Pointed this out to these guys at the London coffee festival as they were saying how revolutionary it was. Azkoyen have been doing it for over 10 years!
levers levers levers, is there any other way?
