    Will Mazzer grinders take over the World???

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Have you ever noticed how many Mazzer grinders there are around? I was on a business trip to Sydney today and as I walked through Melbourne Airport I suddenly noticed just how many Mazzer Jollys (and Mazzer Minis for the decaf) there are in all the coffee outlets. It was exactly the same in Sydney airport and even out on the street there were more in cafes everywhere.

    Is there going to be a Mazzer Apocalypse?

    Hillarious, so true.....Funnily enough, I came home from the office tonight to find one in my kitchen. hahaha. I have a Super Jolly and love it. :-)
    I think Mazzer grinders will outlive our generation and may be the last machines standing on earth when the end of the world arises.

    I think they look like some kind of retro robot army out of Dr Who waiting to rise and take control when we are at our weakest. ie: before our morning coffee.

    They are definitely up there in terms of industry standards! But there is definitely room for improvement. Hopefully, there will be plenty of new players to come.

    So no, not the be all and end all.

    I'd suggest that it's more that little has changed. Mazzer has always had a substantial proportion of the retail coffee market.

    I have noticed that many McCafe's are re equipping with Macap M7D's ...
    If they have standardized on that grinder, then maybe that will help balance things .

    I typically see NS Mythos paired with a NS Auerlia at some McCafe's which is nice to see. Better than some of the super auto looking machines at Starbucks in Thailand.

    Hmm. Not one I'd be putting in a McCafe (even thought it's an awesome grinder). There is no safety to prevent operation of the grinder when the hopper is removed. Too much risk of a pimply 14 YO removing his/her fingertips on the augur over the conical burr set. It's a grinder for specialist use...

    Those auto machines aren't just in Thailand, Starbucks in Brisbane only have super autos now. Press a button for your 20 oz macchiato....

    I have a feeling it will just be Mazzers and cockroaches left after the end of the world.

    I suspect some cafe deals come with a Mazzer. e.g. Some roasters "highly recommend" a particular brand of espresso machine (I "think" Tobys Estate for example urges people to use La Marzocco or Kees van der Westen machines, paired with a Mazzer grinder). This patterns likely follows elsewhere so could be we see a lot of Mazzers because it's connected to a machine or bean supply kind of commercial deal. Good grinders, but have had electrical faults with two over the years, but still a fantastic brand IMO
