9/26/2023 Preorder Shipment Update:
Container with DF64 1.5, DF83 v2 and DF64v is 30 miles from out location, but was randomly flagged for CBP inspection. They are very bad at letting us know when they are done with it which is extremely frustrating, but when we checked on 9/26/2023 they had the container at the facility for inspection. We don't know for sure when they will release it, but it should be soon and we can start shipping the preorders.
PREORDER ONLY. Expected to ship mid September at earliest. Original estimate was end of August, but container was randomly selected for an in depth inspection by US CBP and may take a couple weeks longer due to their backlog.
Version 2 Changes
The latest version will have a plasma generator to reduce static build up in the exit chute and a modified declumper. All other aspects of the grinder will remain the same. We are working to have additional declumper options for v1 owners.
We recommend for someone that primarily grinds for single dose, but occasionally needs a hopper. The burrs and design are best for espresso, but can be used for other types of coffee.

Single dose grinders with large 83mm burrs are usually a pretty pricey investment, with many models costing over $2000. Until now that is. With the new Turin DF83 single dose grinder, you can have an affordable 83mm flat burr grinder for the price that a lot of much smaller burr grinders go for.
Low Retention Single Dosing
The uniquely designed burr chamber allows coffee to be quickly and efficiently, and is very low retention even without the use of bellows. With many other single dose grinders, there is a decent amount that remains in the chamber and has to be removed by using a bellows. With the DF83, during numerous tests the amount that remains behind without bellows is very minimal. We do still recommend using the bellows at the end of each grind session with the burrs still spinning in order to keep the burr chamber as clean as possible at all times, but it usually won’t remove much.
83mm Stainless Steel Flat Burrs, Upgradable to Titanium, or SSP
Stainless steel burrs are the standard design, but we have the option to upgrade to Titanium or to a few SSP burr options. For further information on SSP burrs and which one is best for you, check out our SSP burr pages.
The DF83 can also be used with a hopper if you prefer not to single dose or if you have a larger amount of coffee you want to grind, such as for cold brew or if you want to use this grinder in your business environment.
Wave Spring Washer
Unlike the DF64 which uses springs to hold the top burr carrier in place, the Turin DF83 uses a wave spring washer. While the springs work for the narrower DF64, the wave spring washer design works better for the wider DF83. With the wave spring washer design, taking the top burr off can be done by simply unscrewing the top burr collar.
Painted Aluminum Body
For a premium look and feel, the high quality metal body of the DF83 is beautifully painted in either a black or white finish. The finish is similar to the design of the Turin DF64E or DF64P, but is different from the Turin DF64 original, which is vinyl wrapped aluminum.
Holder for Dosing Cup or Portafilter
As with all the Turin DF64 variations, the Turin DF83 will hold a dosing cup, or a 58mm portafilter. The dosing cup is a durable plastic, but there is also a metal dosing cup option.
The Turin DF83 is designed in house by the owner of the manufacturing company and is an original design. The burr chamber is uniquely designed to have as little retention as possible.
All Purpose Grinder
Being an all purpose grinder, you will be able to grind beans for a wide range of different brewing methods, from espresso to French Press.
There are no steps in the adjustment mechanism of the DF83, which means you will have an infinite number of settings between the largest and smallest settings, allowing you to fine tune your grind size as much as you want to.
Metal Dosing Collar
In order to prevent the grinder from making a mess and getting coffee all over the place, the grinder includes a metal dosing cup collar. It can also be flipped over and used with a 58mm portafilter if you prefer to grind right into your portafilter.

First espresso grinder, so I have no basis for comparison. Easy adjustment and spits out 18g in no time. Don't try to feed too many beans at once though (50g+) or it'll jam up. I have not had any stalling on cold starts. This thing makes very tasty coffee! There is minimal retention after working the bellows a few times. (Still a bit though, have not tried to measure it. Probably <=1g.) I wish the bellows fit a bit more snugly so taking the nice wooden cap off to add beans didn't also often pull up the bellows. I'm sure my muscle memory will eventually compensate for this but it is a minor annoyance. I have not been RDT and static is very minor (current inside humidity is ~55-60%). Still trying to figure out the workflow. I tried dosing straight into the portafilter with the upper part of the included cup/funnel, but it's too narrow for a 58mm portafilter and after WDT there's a distinct ring where the funnel was. So I dose into the funnel-cup, but then I have to remove the funnel after grinding because there's a rim where they meet that coffee gets hung up on. Overall these are minor annoyances and I really like the coffee I'm getting!
Making the best coffee I have ever made so far and managing to get .1 grams of retention on average from the machine.
The DF83v2 is an incredible upgrade from the barista touch built in that I was using previously. I have had no issues with clumping or retention and I have been pulling phenomenal espresso shots. Very happy.
So far I have not been super impressed with the work flow. My main complaints are that there is a lot of pop corning and the grinder is required to be on or it will seize when you add the coffee. These go hand in hand. You turn on the grinder, remove the lid, and add the coffee. Inevitably several beans shoot out the top. The whole process is a little fiddly. However, the coffee is tasting great! Also having to RTD the coffee so my counter isn't covered in chaff is a bit annoying.
