    Good stuff Andrea,

    Glad you are enjoying it, its now my grinder at home as well.

    Fits the bill with a new baby in our house

    Just got mine today. Amazingly silent and miles better then my ~2004 bar grinder (fiorenzato doge I think). Looks stealth too, which I like, chromed version was ~200$ more and prefer the black myself.

    Here’s a side by side of black and chrome in our showroom.

    Chrome is nice but the purchaser needs to justify the extra $180.

    We are still offering free Australia wide delivery https://www.casaespresso.com.au/eureka-atom.html for those in the market.

    Our Eureka bench today. A trio of Atoms; white, black, chrome.
    What’s your preference?

    Definitely the black. Not one for white. The chrome is hard to keep spotless clean in the kitchen for the OCD amongst us. Itís enough work with the coffee machine!

    Black is certainly the most popular.

    The chrome does look quite spectacular next a stainless machine.

    There is a "Kermit the frog" green which i haven't been brave enough to stock. Also a new "baby blue" which has just become available

    I actually really like the white one, and don't think it looks at all appliance-y

    I have a newbie question, don't laugh. When I wish to change the grind fineness or coarseness should I turn the knob while the grind is running or when the grinding is stopped.
    I know to make only small increments and then grind a small amount of beans after the change to get rid of the residual grounds.
    I am still exploring my new Atom.

    As a rule adjust while grinding. You'll get away with small adjustments (~1mm) without grinding but it's best to do it while grinding. Remember to purge after adjusting.

    The grind adjustment works by physically moving one of the burrs closer (for finer) or further (for coarser) from the other burr.

    Once it has ground some coffee, there will be lots partially ground bean fragments between the burrs.

    So you can make adjusts to go coarser without any worries, but trying to push the burrs closer together (for a finer grind) will meet resistance from the trapped bean fragments, so you should always run the grinder when doing this to avoid any possible damage to the grind adjustment mechanism.

    Yes general rule of thumb with any grinder is that you adjust while grinding.

    However you can make SMALL adjustments while it is not running.

    Thanks to Cassa Espresso for our Eureka Atom, sent out a snobs sponsor quote request on Monday (now friday): Antony was the first to respond and the only one to call to discuss my requirements and made a great offer which i didn't hesitate to accept.

    So far the Eureka has been amazing, so quiet and fast and quiet, no issues dialling in the grind and shot consistency has been spot on, even making 15 coffees in a row. It so good to not disturb the entire office every time a coffee is made.

    Glad to hear youíre enjoying the grinder MtMk.

    Spot on there! Running mine at a markets today and getting great shot to shot consistency. Also as people were singing at the markets it was great to be able to keep making drinks knowing the noise levels were low. Machine and grinder next to low noise. My ice shovelling for cold drinks was probably the noisiest part of the process 🤣

    Quiet. Consistent grind. Short hopper. Light enough to cart around.

    Not the greatest for single dosing as you can see in other topics where we pulled it apart ... not sure if there was consensus that it was possibly better with the black plastic auger cover removed...

    But great for working your way through a bag or 1/4 bag at a time.

    Iíve used mine to switch between espresso and pour over /cold brew grind and back to espresso with success. I do still have a second grinder laying around for when thereís decaf / alternate single origin visitors in the house. Hoping to paint the old LSM black soon too. 🤣 YCAMV (your coffee addiction may vary)

    Ah wow... And I've never seen that style of grind adjustment knob before, very different. So tempted...

    Hi Simon,

    The Eureka grind adjustment is a great bit of engineering and used across the range of all their grinders.

    it works by moving the BOTTOM burr up or down. Not only does this make adjustment very accurate it also allows you to remove, change and clean the burrs and when you replace the top burr the grind setting is exactly where it was when you removed the burr. Almost no need to reset your grind setting.

    very clever

    Cheers

    It actually arrived around 2-3 this afternoon! Talk about fast delivery.

    I've only run 40 grams of filter through it for some coldbrew, but I'll pull some shots tomorrow and take a few photos.

    Thanks so much Antony!! Stellar service and a bloody great deal too.

    Got 1 from Anythony/casa espresso too.. Patient guy, great chap! May pop by the store again when back in melbourne..!

    Now.. Just to dial in the atom finer as I am getting some channeling.. Which I noticed from the 3 bar pump pressure.. As compared to 9 bar pressure when I use pre ground beans..

    This looks like a great home grinder... but how does it really compare when taking grind retention into consideration?

    I saw another post which indicates that there are a couple of retention areas.

    The other grinder I have been coveting is the Fiorenzato.

    So I’m torn.

    Basically need a grinder that’s good for single dosing.

    As much as I love my ATOM, the grinder isn't that ideal for single dosing. I find it holds around 5 grams or so but there are small mods you can make to improve on this.

    To put it straight - there are very few grinders on the market actually suitable for single dosing. There's the Baratza Sette 270 - which performs reasonably well for a small cost but they seem to be riddled with issues.

    Since your budget sits around the 1000 mark in assuming, why not have a look at the HG-1? It's a hand grinder, but it's fast, requires little effort, has zero retention and it'll be probably be quicker than trying to scrape every last bit of coffee out of an electronic grinder. The grind quality will be superior and on all reports probably on par/better than the EK43 grind quality.

    Good luck!

    Hi Cvee,

    Yes you will find that there is some grind retention with the ATOM, no more then most however and i would suggest less then the Fiorenzato.

    Fiorenzato are good grinders but i wouldn't put normally consider them as a competitor to the ATOM, very different beasts.

    If you want true single dose grinding the HG1 is one to consider

    Cheers

    Cool, so we both have a Profitec Pro 500 with a Eureka Atom. Great minds think alike as they say

    Yep, I notice a few others with this combo too.
    I think I was a reasonably early convert to the Profitec brand, after catching my attention from probably the same YouTube clips. Took me a little while to eventually purchase as I was waiting for my existing machine to pack it in, plus it was pretty much flying under the radar at the time.
    Been a fan of Eureka since owning the Mignon. Took me a while to convince myself to upgrade, but am really happy I did.
    Still have the Mignon btw, can't bring myself to part with it. I currently use it for my Aero press (which is way below it's status).

    I'm looking around for a dedicated grinder for the DE1. After reading thru this thread the Atom is now on the short list along with the Mignon and maybe the Olympus.

    I want a Kermit green Atom though. To match the colour of envy when my friends see the Decent next to the Lambro��

    I may be wrong but thought Antony from Casa Espresso has a green Atom
    never had an Atom but had a Mignon, thinking if an Atom if financially in reach defiantly get the Atom instead of the Mignon. Same for any grinder brand spend the most you can. No point grindingly $40-50 specialty beans to go into an expensive machine with a budget grinder. Quality has multiple step and the grinder is often overlooked. One other point in my opinion the Atom, Olympus, zenith ect look much more ‘the business’ then a mignon

    I asked this in the Mignon thread (clearly the wrong place), so I thought I should ask in the right thread. Does anyone know what the differences are between the standard Atom and the new Specialty version?

    Looking at the specs on the official Italian site, I can't really see any differences.

    Borrowed from TC website -

    ETA Australian stock is June 2018
    The Eureka Atom Specialty 65 takes all the great features of the Atom and adds extra speed! All Australian stock is supplied standard with low friction, high capacity red speed burrs.This grinder has been developed for moderate cafe use in mind and is fast, quiet, consistent and easy to use.This marked dedication to sound insulation pairs with fine stepless grind control, time-based dosing and an easy-cleaning design shared with other Eureka-designed grinders. The Atom 65 can be optioned with short hopper and also Eureka’s easy setting system

    Speed of grinding. The standard Atom has 60mm burrs and a 450W motor, the specially 65 has 65mm burrs and 510W motor.

    Iím not saying this just because I have a 60mm burr Atom already but I honestly would have no need or want for it to be any quicker.
    Saving 3 seconds on a 20 gram dose isnít a big plus for me but sure Iím a cafe that 3 seconds per dose would make sense.
    I would suggest saving some money and sticking with the 60 fellas and gals.

    This is exactly what I did with my quarmar grinder fork.

    I took some offcuts from spare racing sail wear patch protectors from a racing yacht and stuck it onto the top. Works well and my portafilter no longer cops scratches from the bare metal on metal contact.
