    Sage Smart Pro or Mazzer Mini?

    First post so please be gentle!
    I've had a Smart, (Breville to you guys) for about 6 months paired with my Rancilio Silvia which works really well for espresso in my opinion, and gets the kitchen approval from the present missus. However upgraditus recently bit and on the spur of the moment brought a used Mazzer Mini timer. Now I know the Mazzer is supposed to be a lot better but it's quite a lot bigger and certainly not passing the kitchen police approval!
    I only paid 120 for the Mazzer so question is, fo I keep it or move it on?

    Hi Jack,

    It's a no brainer really. The mini will last you forever in comparison and produces a much nicer grind with less fines than the 'Sage'. I have owned a smart grinder and while it can make nice shots it just doesn't compare to the mini.

    Ultimately, the choice is yours ;-)

    removal of hopper definitely increases WAF (wife acceptance factor), give it a go!
