The Ion Beam is one of the latest additions to the Acaia lineup and is set to release for the first time this month.
The Ion Beam is an industrial-grade ion generator that effectively minimizes static generated from grinding, leading to lower retention, flying chaff, and fewer clumps. This is achieved by releasing a stream of negatively charged ions that neutralize the positive charges that build up during the grinding process, eliminating the static electricity that causes coffee grounds to cling together.
Best New Product
We were honored to have the Ion Beam selected as the Best New Product in the Coffee Accessories category at this year's Specialty Coffee Association Expo. Our co-founder Rex Tseng received the award during last month's event in Portland, Oregon. You can read our recap of our time at Expo 2023 in our blog post here.
First Drop: May 22
The very first Ion Beam release date is Monday, May 22 at 12:30 pm Pacific (3:30 pm Eastern). This drop will consist of Ion Beam Eclipse Edition models and is US only. Limited to one Ion Beam per order per customer. We are releasing 60 ion generators at this time and plan to drop more soon.
You can sign up to be notified of drop information by email here. This will include reminders before and at the time of release. This newsletter can also notify you when it becomes available in your region (such as the EU).
Ion Beam EK
For EK43 owners, we recommend waiting until this summer to purchase, as we will be releasing a special Ion Beam version that is more powerful and comes with a mounted adapter. We will be announcing more about this product on our social media channels and newsletter in the future.
