New Mazzer Mini E Mod B LED Display
Just took delivery of my Mazzer Mini E Mod B GOD with the new LED display panel with grind timer and counter. Thought i'd pull the pin on this new model as the current "screw" adjust is getting phased out. Big thanks to CS site sponsor Mike @ SpiceBean for a great price and service .
Congrats I hope you enjoy it.
Congratulations on your new grinder SSS, not much love for the Mazzer Mini on this forum, the (in crowd) reckon they are slow.
Regardless, us that own one seem to be able to pull a shot that equals the new you beaut super dupers without any difficulty.
Enjoy your new grinder.
oh wow have mazzer brought out a new model to iron out the speed and grind adjustments, i am just about to pull the trigger on a Fausto so would be keen to hear!
Hi cookster,... what problem did you read about with the current model Mazzer grind adjustment?...the grind adjustment is still stepless on this new model. Also,..I dont find the grind speed a issue for me at all , my life style isnt that busy that i cant wait that extra 5-10 seconds per double dose compared to some of its competitors grind speeds.

Congrats. Excellent choice!
From memory the doser version has smaller bursts 58mm and the electronic ones are 64mm
I totally agree with OP that 5-10 second delay is just not a good enough reason to ditch this otherwise a tank of a grinder for home use. I have even seen this used in cafes (in Sydney) for decaf beans.
i don't want to poke the hornet's nest but isn't it a good thing that it has a little slower rpm so it's not heating up the grinds.
It takes about 23 seconds for my mini to grind for a 22g VST. Keep in mind that VSTs require a lot finer grind so it takes longer than usual when dosing for VSTs. I usually place the dosing cup into the portafilter, place the portafilter under the grinder, hit the button, get milk from the fridge, pour milk into the pitcher and as soon as I put the milk back into the fridge, Mazzer is done grinding 22g. There is very little variance in the dose I get every morning which is probably more so due to the ageing of beans since I grind very close to the roast date. So once a week I gently move the burrs to about half a point and then back by the end of the week.

In terms of grind speed I am with you and a few others who actually don't mind waiting a few extra seconds to fill the portafilter basket, after all we all take 25sec or more to get best extraction don't we?
My query was really whether Mazzer had listened to the folk who have been saying it is all a little too slow, which when you hear it often enough does get you (me) wondering whether I should go for a faster grinder like the Fausto. Even some of the sponsors here are saying the same, but it does look very nice and no doubt is very well constructed.
Maybe there is a danger in getting all too involved with the machinery when we should be focussing on the coffee
Cool, I'm one of the in crowd

Different strokes and all that.....
