Mazzer Mini Manual vs Mazzer Mini Electronic...?
I like the idea of a measured dose to fit our basket...and fresh every cup.
What are your thoughts of one vs the other please?
Looking to upgrade our La Cimbali Junior grinder.
Lots of info on here about the Mazzer Minis, search function is your friend.
I definitely recommend Electronic version - it my main home grinder - super reliable, and easy to program.
To minimize grind retention left in the grinder /chute, just get yourself a nice soft , small paint brush and poke/sweep the chute after each grind. You end up getting 99% into your basket.
You'll need to remove the internal finger guard to do this, that's all.
Very surprised that you don't want to stick with your La Cimbali Junior...
A Mazzer Mini would not be an upgrade as far as grind quality is concerned.
If parts are needed, these can be obtained without too much trouble.
I would go for the manual.
As others have said, this won't be an upgrade.
What's your budget? The Mini Electronic really isn't good value for money (Not saying it's a bad grinder).
Strongly consider a Eureka Atom or a MACAP M4D. This would be an upgrade on both grind performance and they will also be quieter!
I think there's still a near new Atom available in the Coffee Hardware For Sale section of the forum at a serious discount.
Thank you - I suspect the burrs may need replacing...we have a coffee machine guru in town - might get him to take a look.
Grinder is large! Sometimes we want something shiny and new
It is a great grinder but big and plastic and ugly.

Any Mazzer is also a great choice and look good.
