general

Spinn is not your run-of-the-mill coffee making experience. Our patented centrifugal force technology has been carefully crafted to provide optimal flavor extraction levels by combining sensors, innovative engineering, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Your Spinn Machine will provide guilt-free quality coffee and freedom of choice from the convenience of your home.
You name it! From Espresso to Americano, Lungo to Pour-Over - your Spinn Coffee Maker and Accessories will take over as your personal barista, standing by and ready to make your coffee just the way you like it.
Coffees scoring above 80 points on a 100 point scale can earn the Specialty Coffee title. It is typically grown at higher altitudes with much care and attention from the farmers and sourced responsibly by coffee traders and/or coffee roasters. Roasters will then create custom profiles for each coffee, harnessing the intrinsic flavors present in the beans and sell it to consumers.
In short, the answer is yes. That being said, the machine will have limited functionalities when it comes to automatic ordering, important notifications and recipe downloads when using coffee beans that are not actively offered on the Spinn Market. We also advise against using darker oily beans as they may lead to issues with your machine in the long-run. You can check out the connected Spinn Market and consider supporting our awesome Roaster Roster for a fully immersive experience.,

We love this question, and we know that coffee and offices go hand in hand! It is important to note, however, that our coffee brewing systems have been approved for domestic use only. The ongoing, repeated use of a Spinn Coffee Maker in a space with lots of daily coffee servings can cause faster wear on the different mechanical components of the device. This may increase servicing requirements in comparison to the average household.

spinn coffee maker

Yes, the machine requires roasted whole coffee beans to function. The roasted coffee beans will be ground right before entering the brewing chamber where the Spinning happens for best results.
Our steel conical burr grinder automatically adjusts the coarseness to match the coffee recipe you choose. Spinn is a professional-grade coffee maker designed to grind with precision in every serving you make.
This depends on your needs! If you don’t want to worry about filling up your water reservoir, the Spinn Original Pro will be the perfect fit for your household as it has an integrated water supply line and includes everything you will need to hook up your machine and automatically refill your water reservoir. The Spinn Original model does not have this feature.
The Spinn Experience has been engineered with ease in mind. If you would like a plug-and-play experience, that is certainly a great option. If you are a Coffee Connoisseur, however, we have more complex brewing parameters that will allow you to have a fully customizable journey.
That shouldn’t be an obstacle in your enjoyment of your Spinn Coffee Maker! Your machine will have preloaded standard recipes as well as seasonal ones on rotation (made available to you via the Spinn App) that will make your experience all the more enticing.

the brewer

Centrifugal brewing employs centrifugal force to brew your coffee. Our technology allows a more flexible approach to at-home brewing as it is possible to alter water, coffee ground and rotation speed levels to serve a wide assortment of coffee recipes. Users can therefore customize parameters to their liking and the centrifugal force in our brewing chamber results in optimal extraction.
Based on the digital recipe scanned from beans available on the Spinn Market, the brewing parameters are automatically adjusted. In addition to this, users are able to adjust the amount of coffee and water per serving.
As soon as your Spinn Coffee Maker finalizes its brewing cycle, the RPM of the centrifugal core increases to get rid of the water still present in the remaining ground coffee. The faster RPM will dry the grounds and feed them into the residue bin by moving the built-in scraper ring downwards inside the brewer towards the bottom of the machine. Once all of the dry grounds have exited the brewer, and the opening at the bottom of the brewer seals shut, your machine will be ready for the next serving.

the water reservoir

A full water reservoir will allow 10 servings of 8oz drip coffee or 25 servings of 2oz espressos on average.
The water reservoir capacity is 40 fl oz /1.15 liters.
All Spinn Coffee Makers come with a sensor that monitors the water levels. When you are running low on water, a signal will be sent to your machine, which will then notify you both through the Spinn App and on the appliance’s frontal display panel.
All models have a detachable water reservoir located at the back of the machine. You will need to remove it and use tap water to fill it. If you have a Spinn Original Pro Coffee Maker, you can also activate the auto-fill feature by using the materials provided to connect your machine to a water supply line and follow the instructions enclosed in your User Manual.
The only model capable of water supply line connectivity is the Spinn Original Pro Coffee Maker. Your Pro machine will come with all items needed for connection.
The machine is engineered for a lifetime of 5 years with 5000+ quality coffee servings. Our food safe and industrial grade components are made for prolonged use.

the water filter

The Intenza Water Filter cartridges take out chlorine and filter metals, such as lead and copper. It reliably reduces the carbonate hardness of your water.
  • Improves the smell, taste and appearance of your coffee.
  • Protects your Spinn Coffee Maker against limescale build-up.
  • Increases the lifetime of your machine.
This will depend greatly on the water quality in your area and your coffee consumption over time. You will need to replace your water filter every 2 Months/250 Cups. Your Spinn Coffee Maker will alert you as soon as it is time to replace your filter via push notification on the Spinn App ( iOS / Android). Water filters and all of our other maintenance products can be found here.
Replacing your Intenza Water Filter is simple. Turn the used water filter inside your Spinn Coffee Maker’s Water Reservoir 90 degrees counterclockwise to remove it. Place your new water filter in the position holes found at the bottom of the Water Reservoir and rotate 90 degrees clockwise to secure it. Please make sure that you discard your used water filters in the plastic recycling bin and you’re good to go!
The Intenza Water Filter can be ordered online within the Spinn App (iOS / Android) and on the Spinn Website.
Yes, Spinn Water Filters are recyclable! You can discard used filters with your plastic recycling.

bean reservoir

The Spinn Coffee Maker’s bean reservoir can hold up to 20oz / 575g.
Your machine’s bean reservoir will only need to be cleaned periodically. We recommend doing so before you refill your reservoir. As soon as it is time to clean your bean reservoir, switch off your machine and clean with a dry cloth to remove any oil build-up.
Spinn machines have sensors that measure the bean level inside the reservoir. You will receive an alert on the Spinn App as soon as your machine detects that it is running low.

The bean reservoir’s lid is designed to keep your beans fresh for longer. That being said, we do not recommend keeping beans in the reservoir past the 2-week mark. If you do not drink coffee every day, please consider filling your Bean Reservoir half way for best results.

the grinder

Spinn uses an FDA approved conical burr grinder with a DC motor. Its supply rate in fine mode is 1.0 grams/sec and will produce 3.0 grams/sec in coarse mode. The hardened steel grinder is fully automatic and can be adjusted through the Spinn App (iOS / Android). The resulting grind of the average particle size is between 240 and 1150 micron, and accommodates any coffee recipe with 95% accuracy.
Spinn has a built-in grinder that grinds fresh whole beans. We don't support pre-ground coffee.

used coffee grounds

The centrifugal core forces all the water to pass completely through the coffee grounds. This efficient process fully extracts water and moisture from the centrifugal core. As a result, the spent coffee grounds are dry to the touch and ready to be evenly sprinkled around your garden.
Because the coffee grounds are dry to touch after brewing, the residue bin can hold multiple servings before needing to be emptied. For best maintenance practices, we recommend that you empty your residue bin once per week.
For best results, please clean your residue bin by hand.
All Spinn Coffee Makers come with a built-in sensor that measures the grounds collected in the residue bin. You will receive an alert on your connected Spinn App (iOS / Android) and will also be alerted on your machine's display panel.
There are so many cool projects that you can use your dry coffee grounds for. You can sprinkle the grounds in your garden, start your own body scrub line, or use them to dye your clothes! The internet is full of ideas and you can always reach out to us at support@spinn.com for inspiration.

the drip tray

Your drip tray can be easily removed by sliding it towards you.
For best results, please be sure to hand-wash your drip tray with warm water and dishwashing soap. Using your dishwasher may damage it.
All Spinn Coffee Makers include a sensor that monitors the drip tray. You will be alerted on both the app and the appliance’s touch display when your drip tray needs to be emptied.

spinn accessories

No, the Spinn Milk Frother is a separate appliance that does not connect via Wifi or Bluetooth.
The Spinn Milk Frother is a separate appliance that can only be activated manually.

You can use all of your favorite milks and plant-based alternatives. Please note that the texture and consistency of your chosen milk will produce varying amounts of froth.

The Spinn Milk Frother is not suitable for heating up chocolate milk. Chocolate milk contains sugar that when heated can cause a coat of unwanted residue inside of the frother leading to malfunctions.

Your milk frother will require a few minutes to cool down before the next serving. If you would like to produce several servings from your milk frother in rapid succession, you can shorten this time by rinsing the inside of your milk frother with cold water between each cycles.
If you wish to heat up your milk without the added froth, it’s as simple as removing the frothing coil.
The lid and frothing whisk can either be cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher. The main container must be hand-washed carefully in order to avoid water damage in the inner circuits as it is an electronic component.
  • Do not immerse the charging dock or container in water or any other liquid.
  • Do not clean the charging dock or container in the dishwasher.
  • Never use scouring pads, abrasive cleaning agents or aggressive liquids to clean the appliance.
Of course! You can purchase the Spinn Milk Frother and Carafe here (subject to availability.)

referral program

At Spinn, we value your time. This is why our Referral Program has been designed to be simple and straightforward. The first step is to download the Spinn App (iOS / Android) and make sure that you are logged into a valid Spinn Account. If you already have a Spinn Coffee Maker, you can use the email address linked to your machine to complete this step. Instructions to complete your referral will be made available in the Referral tab and your contact will receive a notification with their single-use Referral Code. As soon as your contact redeems their Referral Code, They will automatically get a $100 discount on their order and you will receive a 100 Coffee Credits code to be redeemed in the COFFEE CREDIT section in your Spinn Profile.

There is a 100 Coffee Credits incentive for our customers each time that a referral is successful and your contact purchases their Spinn Coffee Maker with your Referral Code.
When your contact redeems your Referral Code at checkout, they will get a $100 discount on their Spinn Coffee Maker.
Absolutely! You are free to send Referral Codes to as many of your contacts as you’d like. Please bear in mind that you will get rewards only when your contact redeems your Referral Code at checkout.
Once you receive your Coffee Credit code, you will be able to redeem it in the COFFEE CREDIT section that you will find in your Spinn Profile. You can consult this section at any time to review your balance. Coffee Credit can be used towards Spinn Market coffee purchases as well as Spinn Maintenance Products.

Redeemed Coffee Credit can also be revoked in the event that it has expired or that the order linked to your Referral Code is canceled.

oily dark beans

We do not recommend using dark/oily beans with your Spinn Coffee Maker.
Darker roasts which have been processed for longer periods of time will secreet oils due to a chemical reaction that the beans have when exposed for prolonged periods to the heat. This oily coating can cause several issues in your Spinn Coffee Maker: the beans will not slide as easily towards the grinder and you may need to manually push them towards the grinder, unwanted residue will build up over time in your grinder and in the centrifugal brewer, which may lead to your machine needing maintenance more frequently.
The Spinn Market was created to shine a spotlight on some of the best roasters in the country. Spinn Coffee Maker owners are able to easily make recipe adjustments through the Spinn App to get the best results with the information provided by our roaster community. That being said, our marketplace also caters to customers who do not use Spinn to brew their coffee. This is the reason why we do not make restrictions with the coffee offerings available on the Spinn Market.
Roasters will add the Dark Roast tag when uploading their coffee offerings, this way you will know what roast level you are purchasing. You can also reach our Spinn Market Support Team by emailing market@spinn.com. Dayna & Melissa will be more than happy to assist you in determining the best roast for your needs.
