Coffee Grinders On demand

SM TK Smart Instant

The SMART INSTANT coffee grinders equipped with an exclusive La San Marco trademark system which enables the continuous control of the measure of ground coffee inside the porta filter.
Conical blades with 1350 rpm motor, Smart technology and Hands Free system series.


Centesimal ring

Adjustment ring which enables more precise adjustments compared with previous models, in order to match the particle size of the ground coffee to the humidity of the atmosphere, to the coffee blend and to the type of grinder.

Aesthetically the centesimal ring enables the control settings to be read more easily through intuitive labelling which indicates the correct direction with an arrow to regulate the grinding particle sizes. Technically, the new system allows for the distance between the burrs to be adjusted with an accuracy of one hundredth of a millimetre, thus enabling a more efficient extraction of the volatile elements and in turn obtain coffee with a superior aromatic character.

Smart technology

The smart technology designed and developed in the R&D department of La San Marco

The smart technology designed and developed in the R&D department of La San Marco which, equipped with two infra-red sensors and specific detection software, automatically measures the ground coffee according to the porta filter basket used, without needing the grinder operator to select any settings. All Smart technology grinders have the new “hands free” option as a standard feature, which supports the porta filter basket during grinding and therefore leaves the grinder operator with their hands free.

Hands free system

System created by La San Marco which enables the basket to be held in place by itself during the coffee grinding process, therefore leaving the machine user’s hands free.

The Hands Free System comes with the series of SMART INSTANT grinders (on demand grinding that automatically recognises baskets with 1 or 2 spouts) and is an optional for INSTANT models (on demand grinding).


Supplied as standard mounted on the left or on request mounted on the right or without.
