Mythos — Grinding Perfection Again

The Mythos grinder has been upgraded and has increased the precision and control of the grinding to enable all baristas, roasteries and chains, that have already appreciated its performance, design and attention to sustainability, to reach a new level of perfection.

In 2013, when it was first launched onto the market, Mythos quickly established itself for its iconic design, high quality standards and waste reduction. Today, Mythos, strengthened by the values of Victoria Arduino, reaffirms itself as the grinder that is able, once again, to reach grinding perfection with significant improvements from the perspective of user experience, grind control and design.

The new Mythos has perfected some of its characteristic features that led to it being appreciated throughout the world, starting with user experience. It has an integrated display touchscreen and is really simple to read and program. The barista has full control over the information and settings thanks to the adaptive logic design which highlights all the most relevant information for his/her work in real time (doses, grinding temperature, burr distance, etc…), keeping routine info in the background. The barista can quickly access the recipe section without entering the menu. This speeds up all the steps related to grinding, with the certainty of getting maximum dose precision and consistency.

Mythos is even more stable for grinding temperature and dose consistency. Maintenance is now even simpler, and this guarantees optimum control over the machine.

Different coffees need to be ground at different temperatures. This is why Mythos allows the barista to select the grinding temperature from a broad range to best extract all the characteristics from every type of coffee. With Mythos, Clima Pro technology has evolved into a proactive grinding system that offers maximum dose consistency throughout the whole working day. The barista only has to set the grinding temperature from the display and the system does the rest. The probe in the grinding chamber monitors the temperature, whilst the Clima Pro algorithm activates or deactivates the heating or cooling systems to constantly maintain the pre-set parameters.

Amongst the most important novelties there is the electronic grind setting control, which is read directly from the display. This is a solution that enables greater precision in grind regulation as well as being easier to read. There’s also a major time saving after the cleaning process. The system memorises the position and guides the barista to the grind setting.

The new clump crusher and the coffee spout have been strengthened to improve a perfect flow of ground coffee into the portafilter and they significantly reduce the time needed for cleaning and maintenance. Mythos has reduced the number of screws for accessing the grinding chamber to further simplify daily routine operations as well as programmed maintenance.

The filter holder hook has been designed to accompany the ground coffee into the filter to avoid waste and to ensure better adherence of the portafilter on the fork.


The gravimetric version comes with an incorporated weight scale and with a fast calibration and dosing algorithm which is much easier to set, thanks to a predictive system that automatically controls dose precision and grinding speed. Greater flexibility, waste reduction and maximum precision are the immediate advantages that are noticeable right from first use.

The improvements introduced into the new Mythos all involve user experience and control over the grind, and they inspired the design. The iconic lines of Mythos embrace the integrated touchscreen display in a glass panel. The fans, with a new contemporary design, are both positioned at the rear to allow for perfect airflow inside the machine and to reduce the space on the counter when using several grinders.

With its 4 different versions, Mythos has created a full system of grinding excellence and perfection. All have rigorously the same design and the same iconic lines. The Mythos ecosystem comes in the 75mm (MY75) and 85mm (MY85) versions with the option of integrating gravimetric technology (MYG75 and MYG85).

Today, Mythos defines a world of detail, but with a unique design, and the same passion and strong values shared with the baristas, roasteries and chains throughout the world, to reach grinding perfection once again.

For the launch of Mythos, Victoria Arduino wanted to give a voice to various professionals from around the world who share the same values and the same passion, and who every day are devoted to the spread of quality coffee. The result is a manifesto in which many different voices express passion for their work, their commitment to respecting people and the environment, attention to detail, use of technology and design to offer constantly improved results. And, lastly, working together to reach a new level of grinding perfection.
