  • !!!SOURCED!!! - WTB - Mazzer Mini/Upgrade grinder from my rocky

    Hi guys,

    Unsure if this post is suitable but I'm keen to upgrade my rocky grinder and was wondering what's out there.

    Keen on the Mazzer mini range - and also more than happy for others to give their $0.10 on a suitable upgrade to marry with my PID Silvia. (And with a view to accompany the one-day upgraded coffee machine) so some future proofing is a benefit......

    after a doserless setup as I'm sick of the doser on my rocky

    Located in Adelaide but more than happy to cover postage for interstate grinders.

    Max budget would be $800

    Let us know what you've got!

    Cheers!
    Tim

    Check out the Compac and Macap grinders Tim, both seem to be preferred to the Mazzer Mini now.

    Having said that, I have owned a Mini for quite a while and doubt I will ever get rid of it, excellent grinder and bullet proof.

      Thanks Yelta!

      Appreciate the feedback - what is this based on? Burr design? Coffee retention? Anything in particular they exceed the mini in?

      Just want to increase my knowledge on other grinders in the market.

                  I think I may need to start a forum post requesting people's advice/experience from upgrading from a rocky-level of grinder.....

                    Quamar m80e is a good altenative to mazzer mini. Very popular here in Denmark.

                      Nah, you've said nothin' wrong! Note the smiley face at the end of the "tad large"....

                      When it comes to coffee bling, if it's big and shiny, then it's never too big or too shiny!!

                        Definitely not hawk87. It was a bit of sarcasm amongst us Titan grinder owners. Keep up the posts mate.

                          All good - I'm assuming Titan refers to the epic size? I

                          I'd be hard pressed to find the bench space!!

                            The bench space isn't that bad, the Fiorenzato is around 25x25cm without the catch tray - about twice the width of a Rocky. It's the headroom that can be a problem. I think it's 43cm tall without the hopper and 66cm with it.

                              I also have a mazzer mini, ive upgraded it to doserless, can't see myself ever getting rid of it, will last a life time I reckon.

                              I've used a couple of compac k3's, and my preference is the mazzer mini.
