    Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Its been on the list for a while now, but Ive been meaning to stick a shorter hopper on my Super Jolly. As far as I know, the Mini hoppers fit on, that is, the throat size is the same. And these are the only ones that are interchangable. So you cant stick a mini or SJ hopper on a Kony, Robur etc, or vice versa, cos of the mounting collars.

    I was going to put a standard Mini hopper on my SJ, but Id like to go even shorter and get the "Short mini hopper". That is, a shorter than the stock Mini hopper. And last time i checked they only sold them in the US. Has any of the site sponos thought of bringing a batch in. Im sure (especially with the flood of new mini and SJ owners) that there is a definite market for these.

    Oh, and I dont want to cut any hoppers down. I know you can get bits of plastic cups and plumbers PVC pipe for the mod, but ideally Id love to have something that looked like it was meant to be.

    If anyone has any other solutions, thatd be great too!

    Peace in the Middle East,

    Hi YeeZa,

    To this point, our importer has not been interested in bringing in the super short hopper. You are correct that it will fit the SJ or the mini...

    Ill start a poll and gauge interest for a bulk buy...

    regards

    Chris

    I think the new pics that Javaphile has just put up from his little toy trip has a pic of the Mini with the short hopper in the photo: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/attachment...f_DCP_2969.jpg in the Grinders from the SCAA meet.

    You can see the original size hopper on the photo before that one on the Mini-es

    Re: Mazzer Super Jolly Short Hoppers

    Gday YeeZa,

    I had similar ideas to you and searched all over the net trying to work out the easiest way to do it. I saw a picture of a SJ with a lovely stainless funnel for a hopper but when I went around all the kitchen shops in Wagga I couldnt find one anywhere so I went an exhaust shop and got a bit of stainless exhaust pipe to fit.
    It needded to be polished but would have done the job until I went to Albury and found a "Jam Funnel" which is a perfect fit. It is stainless and looks great, at the moment I am using saucer as a lid until I can find something nicer.
    Maybe there is someone that can source these for those of us who cant.
    Good luck,
    Thomas

    Re: Mazzer Super Jolly Short Hoppers

    You can buy said jam funnel from a kitchen ware website (best I not post the link here - Google is your friend) I am awaiting delivery.

    That being said, I still want the Short Mini Hopper and am still awaiting stock from Chris. So, if a bulk buy does go ahead, perhaps we can all get it cheaper?

    Will follow thread with interest.

    Thanks Marc,

    If we can get them, well just cover costs rather than look for a return on this item.

    Im more interested in just offering a service ;-)

    :-? How so?? You just buy another hopper.

    We are talking about the shorter US spec. hopper here as a special order.... ;)

    Yeah, WOTB, theres the standard Mini hopper (which you have) in abundance; then theres the new SHORTER Mini hopper which isnt available here in Aus. Thats what I want.

    Or alternatively you can buy a SJ hopper and plonk it on top of your Mini... just to mix it up haha.

    Im interested but price is certainly a factor so some idea of the cost would be good.

    Re: Mazzer Super Jolly Short Hoppers

    I would be VERY interested in getting one or two of these.

    I have SJs at home and at work, both would benefit from a reduction.

    Re: Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Hhhhhmmmmm.....Now yall are making me think!

    I did speak to the Mazzer folks about the possibility of shorter/smaller hoppers on their larger machines and the response I got was that they were going in the opposite direction at the request of their customers. Their hoppers are getting bigger rather than smaller. When questioned about the smaller hopper fitting on the larger machines they stated that it would not fit due to different throat sizes.

    You might want to double check all the measurements before ordering a big batch of them!!

    Re: Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Has anyone here thought of using a Macap M4 hopper as an alternative to the one you are talking about here? I see on a certain overseas website, they are selling this Macap hopper for fitting on to a Mazzer Mini. Although it wouldnt be as large a hight reduction as the super-short mini hopper, but supposedly reduces the overall hight of the Mini down to 445mm. See attached photo:

    No go, the throat of the hopper is a different (wider) size....

    Re: Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Thought of using the Macap hopper, and all others for that matter.

    The only ones that are interchangable (and fit perfectly) are the current Mini hoppers and Super Jollys. As far as I know.

    Re: Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Hi Chris,
    I already have an Aus-spec Mazzer Mini hopper on my SJ - but Id still be interested in the super-short option dependent on price.

    Thanks for chasing this up Chris because I had no joy trying to get one myself.

    Re: Mazzer Super Short Hoppers (mini & SJ)

    Good news all...

    We have confirmation in principle that we can get them!

    We are probably still a good couple of months off and I am yet to confirm our buy price. My guesstimate of price is in the order of about $35.

    We will be offering this service at cost + postage as required- simply as a service to CSers

    So what is the current price of the SJ at the moment with the short hopper?. Or does it come standard with the larger hopper?

    I have asked the importer to get 50 for CSers....so there should be one for everyone who wants one. Hopefully, this might begin a push to have them permanently available in Australia.

    Chris
    Yeah, good $tuff, market segmentation at work! Makes one wonder how many sales Mazzer has lost due to their refusal to down size the SJ hopper? Yes, I hear you, those sales might have gone to the mini, but did they all go that way? Power to the PPL!
