Maschinen was founded in Zurich, Switzerland in 1928 as a manufacturer of automobile bodies and switched to
manufacturing commercial coffee grinders in 1954. Ditting
was the family name of the founder of our Company.
For nearly half a century, Ditting has manufactured Swiss
precision coffee grinders and has grown with the industry's changing needs
while simultaneously setting standards in the coffee grinding industry.
The heart of the Ditting grinder is the material and
design of the grinding disc developed by Ditting
engineers and individually milled to perfection at the Ditting
factory. The grinders are driven by HIGH-TORQUE motors to withstand
the heavy load encountered during fine grinding. The advantage of the
grinding disc design is the fact that the
coffee beans are cut down in
size through multiple steps, resulting in
uniform particle size
according to the fineness selected. Most importantly, during the grinding,
the coffee beans are not overheated; therefore, the roast condition of the
beans is not affected.
Albert Bezjian, the founder of Ditting USA, Inc. in California,
started representing Ditting Maschinen of
Switzerland back in 1968 while he was working as a mechanical engineer for
an Aerospace manufacturing company. Our older customers remember the
company he founded as Bezjian Imports.
Over the last 50 years, Albert has been working closely with Ditting
management in Switzerland to keep Ditting grinders
in tune with the needs of coffee professionals. Ditting
engineers and Albert's own engineering background have helped Ditting
reach where it is today, setting grinding standards and leading the
In the early 1990's, to use Albert's technical
background and to establish a stronger support base in North America, the
Swiss company made Bezjian Imports their distribution and tech support
center for the U.S., and Bezjian Imports became Ditting USA, Inc.
Ditting USA, Inc. has centralized all services - sales,
technical support, and shipping - from our
