Centrifugal Brewer Serving Process
- Grinded coffee with the desired grinder grid is suspended into the slowly rotating brewing mixing chamber.
- The coffee grind is divided equally over the meshfilter surface in the mixing chamber ready for optimal extraction.
- Water in the desired volume, pre-infusion and temperature is suspended into the slowly rotating brewer mixing chamber.
- The extraction of the coffee starts when in contact with water without pressure.
The mixture is not yet high enough to flow out of the mixing chamber.
- The mixing chamber rotation increases. The coffee water mixture forms a homogene layer on the meshfilter surface.
- The holes in the permanent filter are so small that the mixture will not flow through the filter right away. This enables to determine the contact time of the mixture at a constant rotating speed that will vary for the different coffee styles.
- The rotation speed increases further and water in the mixture will be pressed by the force against the coffee particles to pass through the meshfilter.
- The extracted coffee pressed through the meshfilter runs through nozzles to create backpressure at high rotation speeds for fine grind espresso style coffees. For drip coffee style the mixing chamber rotates at lower speeds and the nozzles will have no backpressure function which is not neccessary for this coffee style.
- The coffee extraction runs after passing the nozzles into the gutter and flows via the dispensing spout into the cup.
- The rotation speed of the mixing chamber increases further up and all the water is forced out of the coffee residu to make it as dry as possible.
- The rotation speed slows down. The bottom of the mixing chamber opens in downward direction and the coffee scraper ring sweeps during this downward direction along the filter and removes the coffee residu from the mixing chamber into the waste container.
- The rotation speed increases with an open mixing chamber to ensure all coffee residu will be removed.
- The mixing chamber closes and stops rotating. The centrifugal mixing chamber is ready for the next serving.
- In case of serving a caraff of coffee the mixing chamber repeats the servings sequentually.

How long will the beans stay fresh inside the bean reservoir?
The lid reduces the amount of air to enter the reservoir but it does not make it airtight close the reservoir permanent. Due to this we advise you not to keep beans in the reservoir longer than 2 weeks.
Spinn is designed to bring the freshness out of you whole bean coffee. The hopper holds the average amount of coffee needed for your household use. If you only occasionally use your Spinn Original, consider only filling the Bean Reservoir half way.

the milk frother
How can I heat milk without creating milk froth?
How can I clean the different parts of the milk frother?
Which milk types can I use?
You can use any type of milk you like. However, different types and brands of milk result in different amounts of froth and different froth qualities.
The milk frother is not suitable for heating up chocolate milk. Chocolate milk contains sugar and when this is heated, it causes caramelized sugar to coat the inside of the frother, which may cause malfunctions.
Tip: For the best result, we advise you to use fresh semi-skimmed or full-fat cow’s milk at refrigerator temperature, between 5-8ºC.
Note: Different types and brands of milk will result in different amounts of froth and different froth qualities. Rice and soy milk, for example, do not produce high-quality frothed milk.
