got my mini yesterday too. mustve just missed each other at Veneziano ;)
the mazzer is really nice and i feel really spoilt to have it on my bench - not that ive abandoned my em0480 grinder. however, somehow i have a sentimental attachment to it. call it my first love if you will ;D ah well, its been given over to humble plunger duties at my office desk (or perhaps decaf duty when guests come over hmm).
as for the pros and cons, youve covered most of the ones i had. going from the em0480 (doserless) to the mini, the most obvious change ive had to deal with is the doser. however, the electrical tape mod does wonders for sweeping the grinds. still not used to actually doing the dosing but im sure practice will solve that ;)
the other thing i noticed with it is the adjustment - its stiff as. i guess itll loosen up with time. finding it kinda weird that there are no clicks when adjusting the grind. its a good thing i guess :P
i generall dont mind the speed of the grinding. especially since miss silvia likes to take her time to settle in temperature.
an additional thing i like about it is the build quality. sure it throws to the left a bit, there are still clumps out of the doser (not statically charged tho), but for all its little idiosyncracies, its elegant and i can tell its built solid like a tank (after all i had to carry it in!). now miss silvia has a new companion ;) here they are on my bench.
a big thanks to veneziano for this offer :)
