ANFIM looks more like a neighborhood workshop than an industrial activity.
Nevertheless, ANFIM turns out more than 5,000 professional coffee grinders each year, and although the line is austere - six models plus a dosing unit - it covers the basic requirements, small to big-volume, of bar and shop.
When his father sold Nilo and retired, Mario chose to take a 50% share in the well established but quite localized grinder manufacturing firm called ANFIN; he then changed the name to ANFIM when he took full control of the firm in 1990.
Monfrini's particular view of coffee, as barman and roaster, has resulted in some key changes in ANFIM grinders.
As a result, he says ANFIM was the first grinder manufacturer to go to slow revolution motors.
The most basic grinder in the ANFIM line is intended for a small bar or as a side grinder for decaffeinated service.
