For these cases and of course for repairs in case of damages, the technicians of our partners participate in intense trainings at Mahlkönig, Ditting and Anfim. Furthermore with our service movies we provide detailed step-by-step instructions being available at any time. These movies are designated to support our service partners for preparing upcoming maintenances as well as a help for repairs.

THE HEMRO GROUP PRESENTED “GRIND BY WEIGHT” AT THE HOST 2015.
By combining outstanding engineering expertise with the passion for the perfect cup of coffee, the Hemro Group underlines its leading position within the industry, once more. Visitors of the Host 2015 had the exclusive chance to witness an ultimate highlight: dosing by weight. Neither dosing by a pre-set timer, nor dosing by volume – both being unaffected by the actual condition of the coffee or the grind adjustment. And what finally makes the Hemro Group’s world premier of the grind-by-weight feature a true sensation: it is made to work with porta-filter-holders!
The grind-by-weight feature facilitates absolute precise ground coffee dosing. It automatically detects the porta-filter-holder, recognizes whether it is a single- or double-shot and tares the weight. Its quick and easy setting assures a most efficient workflow. And the intuitive operating app for your smart phone or tablet PC puts you into wireless control – anytime and anywhere.
But besides providing pleasant convenience and smart functionality this feature is an absolute must-have for any discerning coffee shop owner striving for perfection, because it enables consistent quality in every single cup of coffee.
This consistent quality can now be provided by any grinder of the portfolios of the companies of the Hemro Group, Mahlkönig, Ditting and Anfim, as the grind-by-weight feature is combinable with any espresso grinder model.
Detailed information about the feature will be revealed in 2016.

WELCOME TO THE HEMRO ACADEMY:
THE COFFEE GRINDING EXPERTISE COURSE.
Providing the customer with an ultimate aromatic coffee experience is the common goal for all members within the global coffee industry. But the preparation of a really excellent cup of coffee takes more than beans and water. It takes great passion, a lot of training and profound know-how about the coffee’s long journey from the origin into the cup. Starting with the variety, the growing area, the harvesting and processing, moving on with the packaging and transportation and finally: the roasting and the brewing method.
Each one of these milestones has a certain influence on the final aroma profile of the coffee. And likewise does the coffee grinder play a very crucial role, turning the beans into particles of the appropriate size for extraction.
Starting in 2016 the Hemro Academy welcomes coffee professionals to attend the coffee grinding expertise course at the brand-new training centre in Hamburg, Germany. During the 2- or 3-day-program participants will get exclusive insights on coffee grinding technology and learn exciting facts about the grinder’s influence on the taste of the beverage. And as regular professional maintenance is mandatory to assure best performance, in-depth technical service trainings for Mahlkönig, Ditting & Anfim grinders are part of the program, as well.
By sharing its comprehensive know-how about coffee grinding the Hemro Group aims to contribute to a better quality and more consistency inside of the coffee cups all around the world.
Lectures and trainings are given by Senior Product Manager Christian Klatt, an engineer and coffee grinding specialist by profession and a great coffee enthusiast by heart. Having joined the Hemro Group in 2007, Mr Klatt shares his unique coffee grinding expertise regularly during international coffee events.
The definite schedule for courses at the Hemro Academy are expected to be available by the beginning of 2016.
THE HEMRO GROUP SPONSORED THE BARISTA CAMP 2015
Coffee is made by people. People, taking care of growing and harvesting. People, creating blends and roasting profiles. And those people who finally prepare the beverage: the baristas. Once a year the Barista Guild of Europe organizes the Barista Camp, an event designed for networking, learning and sharing experiences.
This year’s Barista Camp took place from 23rd - 26th September in Riccione, Italy. Participants had the opportunity to attend different courses focussing on green coffee, sensory evaluation, brewing and extraction as well as on the preparation of espresso and cappuccino. Experienced international coffee professionals like Andrew Trolley, Sang Ho Park, Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood and many more shared their profound knowledge during inspiring presentations and exercises. Senior Product Manager of the Hemro Group, Christian Klatt, introduced his audience to the correlation between the heating in grinders and the taste of coffee.
Finally the “campers” had the opportunity to bring their coffee know-how and preparation skills to serious written and practical tests. Having passed and celebrated their exams, graduates left the Barista Camp with an official certificate and with many new insights, new contacts and a very unique great memory.
To support the event and to promote professional baristas striving for continuous improvement of coffee quality, the Hemro Group took pride in sponsoring coffee and espresso grinders for each brew bar at the Barista Camp. At the Hemro Group we believe that a development towards a better way of doing things can only happen when people share their knowledge, exchange ideas and feel united by a mutual aim: to make each cup of coffee a little bit better than the one before.
