Revolutionizing Coffee Brewing with AF007

AF007: A Sleek, Modern Coffee Grinder by Nicola Zanetti and Federico Gonzales Bosque

AF007, a single dose coffee grinder, is a testament to the innovative design prowess of Nicola Zanetti and Federico Gonzales Bosque. This award-winning appliance redefines the coffee brewing process with its precision, quality, and modern aesthetic.

Derived from a thorough investigation of coffee machine trends, the AF007 is a blend of minimalism and high-tech features. Its sleek, cylindrical shape, complemented by a minimal color palette of black, white, and silver, exudes a modern look. LED lights and digital displays further enhance its high-tech appeal.

What sets the AF007 apart is its unique features and strengths. The grinder is equipped with cutting-edge titanium ceramic burrs, known for their superior durability and ability to produce a precise, consistent grind - a crucial factor in achieving a perfect cup of coffee. Its body, made through high-pressure metal injection molds, is both durable and easy to clean.

The AF007 is not just about aesthetics and durability; it's also about user experience. The grinder is extremely simple and intuitive to operate. Users pour coffee beans into the upper compartment, select the degree of grinding by rotating the upper graduated cylinder, and choose the grinding speed from the interface on the product side. The coffee beans are then ground and dispensed in powder form directly into the container on the front.

Designed in Italy by an international team, the AF007 project took seven months to complete. The design process involved comparing traditional and modern competitor products, identifying the style that matched their vision, and translating it into a new product. Balancing the needs of production and design push, the team successfully overcame the challenge of designing a minimal and modern coffee grinder.

The AF007 has been recognized for its innovative design, winning the Silver A' Home Appliances Design Award in 2023. This prestigious award is given to top-of-the-line, creative, and professionally remarkable designs that exhibit outstanding expertise and innovation. The AF007, with its strong technical characteristics and splendid artistic skill, certainly fits this description.
