    Re: Mazzer Mini Electronic

    which latte art comp?

    seriously, its a home/cafe decaf grinder and in my opinion you need something fast for competition duties, such as a large flat burr (BNZ, Mazzer Major etc) or large conical. something that gives up <7s per shot.

          theres a button on the side that says "To email a query to all our sponsors at once: Sitesponsors@coffeesnobs.com.au ". I suggest using that to find the sponsor that meets your needs. As Chris is currently in new york, youd be better using cuppacoffee if you want to do business with Chris, as theyre the sydney-based agents.

            Re: Mazzer Mini Electronic

            Hiya, I have a Mazzer Mini Electronic, a few problems I have are a build up of grounds in the dispenser, I thought this might be caused by static, so before each grind I need to give it a tap with the tamper to release the grounds. Also the timers are very inconsitant, so Ive resorted to manual grinding. Has anyone else had similar problems?

              This is probably due to the gravity feed nature of the timer. The dose is relative to the amount of coffee that gets ground per second which changes depending on how much beans you have in the hopper. A few people Ive spoken too says the hopper needs to be always full in order to pull a consistent dose.

              Im no engineer so this is all the product of hearsay and speculation.

                I also find the timed dose to be inconsistant. When I bought my MM I weighed the time doses to check and found a fair bit of variation. So now I go by leveling technique or by eye or weighing the dose if I can be bothered.

                Overall its a great grinder for home, pretty quiet very little mess, good quality grind and I think it looks great too.

                    The timer is inaccurate and I use the manual button also.

                    see this review highlighting the variation in doses. http://www.home-barista.com/espresso-grinder-review-mazzer-mini-electronic.html

                      Buy a regular mini and for $400 get 5 senses to retro fit their E kit. Way better than the standard mazzer E.

                          Re: Mazzer Mini Electronic

                          Actually Ive found the electronic timers to be very accurate, they use 10 turn potentiometers, with each full turn marked with a scale of 12 points on the faceplate. When I first purchased the grinder about 6 months ago, I did the following measurements:

                          The "single" dose timer gives a motor run time of:
                          Zero Turns: 2.2 sec. to 10 Full turns: 18.25 sec, a range of 16.05 seconds
                          I measured the run time at each point on the scale and measured that each full turn increased the run time by 1.6 sec, with the smaller 12 increments each represented .13 seconds.

                          The "double" dose timer gives a motor run time of:
                          Zero Turns: 6.3 sec to 10 Full turns: 22.3 sec, a range of 16.0 seconds
                          Again, I measured the run time at each point on the scale and measured that each full turn increased the run time by 1.6 sec, with the smaller 12 increments each represented .13 seconds.

                          Ive kept extensive notes whilst learning with these machines and the timer adjustments on the grinder are very accurate as far as the motor run time is concerned. What varies is the weight of the grind.
                          I measure each dose using digital scales accurate to .01 grams and as long as the beans sit above the level of the hopper gate, each dose only varies by about .1 gram.
                          (For example, I use "The Pony" blend, and with a setting of 7.5 turns on the double pot, each dose is very close to 16.3 grams. I have a 6910 and use LM 12g double baskets from DiBartoli, and this weight gets me spot on to the 5 cent test with regards to the Sunbeams shower screen.)

                          The biggest factor is when change beans or you vary the grind to get the pour right. If you set the grind coarser with the same timer setting then the machine grinds "faster", with an increase in dose weight. If you set the grind finer, then the machines motor runs "slower" with less grinds produced. This is typical of all the reviews I have read on different brands of analogue or digital "timer" grinders.
                          If you change the grind, then for the same quantity dose, you must vary the motor run time.
                          The Mazzer grinder was a big jump price wise from the EM0480 but it gives me no mess, very little wastage of grinds, and fresh pours, (and no static!!) People may say that weighing each dose is overkill and defeats the purpose of using a timed grinder, but it allows me to learn very quickly what makes a better coffee.
                          If a grinder ever appears that actually calculates and measures the grind weight for you instead of timing the motor run, then Im sure Ill look at it with "machine envy"

                            They make your doser into an E. Its their version of the mazzer electronic doser that is way more accurate and user friendly, on the go adjustments are more practical with it.
