    I've also just finished the transition from the Breville to the same Eureka Mignon E (black).
    Overall pretty happy with the upgrade! It's taken me a little bit to adjust to the new workflow, but I'm loving it. Coffee is steadily improving.
    Good luck!

      The Mignon is a solid little "no frills" grinder. I've owned one for over six years and it hasn't missed a beat. Still gets used every day even though I also have the Atom.
      Eureka is a solid brand, enjoy

        Thanks for the support guys! Gotta tweak the placement of things but super impressed with size, sound, build quality. Timer seems like it has enough range to get the dose I need. Bit messy, but I’ve got a chute mod and a tray to catch any stray grounds or drips printing overnight. Might print a chunkier lid to get a better positive seal. Keen to play tomorrow!

          I'd be keen to see how those prints go! Something I'm considering for mine, but I'm managing ok for now.

        Tray is a really nice fit, squeezes in and sits tight but can be easily removed for emptying. Especially good for catching any drips from portafilter between shots.

        I printed the short chute design, definitely helps keep things targeted, but I think I may try the longer version. Really nice press fit at 101% scale. If it works I’d consider designing my own that narrows the path to aim it at the centre of the basket.

        Only a few coffees in today, it’s pulling shots over a time I was accustomed to before the loan grinder (25-30seconds instead of 15) and the Crema is definitely back in earnest. Need to play and dial it in even further but I’m very hopeful!

          That looks pretty good!
          Do you have links to any of these prints?

          Im currently designing my own funnel design to taper and focus the grounds a little more than the linked one, but they work good for now

          Awesome! I'll see if I can get someone to print these at work for me. Good luck with the design!
