    With my Atom using a 18g VST basket typically anywhere between around 12-14.5 seconds.

    Had a single origin bean and grind time was about 10 seconds. Trying to remember which / bean variety.

    Bean varieties/density does play a noticeable difference in grind time.

    Does anyone know if anyone has any stock of the latest Atom version in Melbourne at the moment? Seems like the Australian importer is all out until Nov. Thanks.

    Has anyone found a way around using the portafilter holder with a naked portafilter?

    What's the issue? I use it with a naked every day. I used to have it set so I could use a spouted or naked, but now I almost never use the spouted so flipped the piece of the portafilter holder that goes inside the machine the other way up and put it back together. Works a treat.

    Oh am I excited!! I have an Atom Specialty 65 with Red Speed Burrs arriving on my counter tomorrow AM!!

    Of course, the Atom fell into my lap the day after I installed brand new burrs into my Super Jolly Electric - I guess the purchaser of the Jolly will be starting of right though!!

    I will post some photos and my thoughts on the Specialty 65 once it's all setup

    Ha!! I did hurt a little... but, hoping for a sale of the Super Jolly to offset the initial outlay... I just couldn't resist!

    Anyone here had experience with the Red Speed Burrs before?

    Day three with the Atom 65, so far I am really impressed. It is super quiet and has been a dream to dial in.

    I will post a bigger update this weekend with a pile of photos.

    I'm keen to hear your update! And where can I get my hands on an Atom 65 or 75? I can't find them anywhere in Australia.

    Hey mate - sorry, I forgot about this!

    The grinder has been amazing (for me). The adjustments hold sold, it dials in super easy and it is wickedly quiet.

    I find the grind very clump free and nice and fluffy. It spits out a very consistent 19g dose in about 8 seconds and I would say 99% of the grinds hit the portafilter - there is very little throw on to the counter (most, if not all, are caused by me).

    I have the small hopper currently installed typically only fill it halfway. The odd bean does get hung up when itís running low, but itís not an issue.

    I think Eureka has also changed the spindle that holds the burrs. They plastic ďspiralĒ that pulled beans down on the older Atom has been changed to a larger spiral in the metal spindle. I am not 100% about this change as I didnít own the older version, but I get very little ďspit backĒ from beans when the hopper is low.

    I am thrilled with the grinder and highly recommend putting it on your shortlist.

    Having now read the whole thread, and only seen one reference to this question with no clear answer...

    Would an Atom be a good investment for light duty cafe use? Say, 50-100 coffees/day? I'm not seeing the Atom 65 anywhere, though will shoot off some inquiries. This would be as an alternative to, say, a Ceado E6P (keep in mind, said tiny cafe is not in Aus, we're running a GS3, and the grinder would need to be 220v/60hz capable).

    Speaking of which, don't suppose I could trouble someone to check the power specs label, and see if it, by chance, says 50/60Hz next to the 240V bit? None of the Aussie sites seem to mention this, and the one site that does states "110/120V", clearly a cut and paste from the US info sheet...

    Zee, unfortunately for me the compliance label is prominently displayed in my setup. It reads 50-60hz, 220-240V so you are ok.

    Sweet - awesome for me! (not so much for you, sadly, though I'm sure the quality of grinds more than makes up for it!).

    Thanks for the info - also thanks jay714.

    A barista I spoke to not long after I got mine 18 months ago said he used to work in a cafe in Sydney CBD and they used an Atom as a decaf grinder and called it a "little tank"

    Sounds promising - though perhaps the Zenith is a wiser choice. We're having trouble getting people to actually send us quotes (It seems to be a Filipino thing), so I was thinking of getting an Atom to get us by, then turn it into a backup/Single O grinder once we get the Ceado E37S we're looking at. Though one of the Ceado resellers finally responded, I may still get an Atom or Zenith as well anyway, especially seeing as one of the site sponsors that sell atoms is a mere 10 minute drive away, and literally right across from one of the suppliers for my Audio/Visual/Integration business...

    I've been using the regular Atom for 70-150 coffees / session. Works fine in this scenario. Hands free dose in to PF. I have two PF on the go so can easily switch. Grind dose / timer consistency is good if you keep beans in the hopper.

    Things would more troublesome for single dosing with this grinder. Maybe the new auger guard mentioned helps with that on the Atom 65.

    I'm keen on the Etzinger EtzMax Medium W as next level purchase to cover all bases.

    For budget friendly, I've been wondering about Mazzer SJ deli with red speed burrs for single dose and general fun.

    A friend of mine got a Eureka Atom recently here in Brisbane. He's having a strange issue with dialling it in. Once dialled, it produces great coffees for the day however the next morning the grind size gets too fine on its on. Then he has to dial it all over again for the day. Any idea what could be causing it? Some fault?

    I assume he isn't doing anything weird with it overnight? Sounds like the level of beans in the hopper is changing. With most grinders that move the upper burr, having less beans in the hopper makes the grind courser, having more beans in the hopper makes the grind finer (all in the same setting). With the Atom and other grinders that have a fixed upper burr and move the bottom burr for adjustment, having less beans in the hopper makes the grind finer, having more beans in the hopper makes the grind courser (all in the same setting).

    I had a lot of issues dialling in because I would fill the hopper and then run it until it was empty and refill it. This will change the size of the grind without changing the setting. Make sure he is keeping the level of beans in the hopper consistent. I found it best when the upper limit I filled the beans to is about 1cm above where the hopper walls go vertical, and the bottom limit where I would add more beans to be as soon as you can see the finger guard through the beans.

    Thanks for the responses. He's actually emptying hopper overnight. Quantity of beans might be a factor but the hopper is quite small anyway.

    Is he doing any grinding at all between emptying the hopper and refilling it? How low is the level of the beans when he empties it and how high is he filling it again? I know it's a small hopper but it still has an effect. Is it the standard hopper or a different one? I've also got the smaller round hopper as well as the standard odd shaped hopper.

    Thanks for that, no one was able to help me so I ended up importing my new Eureka Atom 75 from Europe. Massive delivery charge and import taxes, but I think it's been worth it!

    So no local distributors are importing these to Aus? That's disappointing.

    That's the standard Atom, Yelta, not the Atom 75 with Blow Up.

    Eureka Atom

    Past my 2 year anniversary with the Eureka Atom now so time for some cleaning pictures. 5132 doubles (approx 19g per double); 361 singles (approx 9-10g single); So at least 102kg of coffee ground. Add an extra kg or two over that time for manual mode.

    Still loving the grinder. Still doing a consistent, quiet job of things.

    Overdue for a full clean down in to the base. Should do the base more regularly and / or rig up a cover over the Omron timer and power switch.

    This grinder is easy to get in to and pull apart and put back together. You don't lose your grind settings.

    I recommend using grinder clean tablets more often as they do a good (and food safe) job of taking out any grinds.

    Cleaning pics time.

    Some good prices going around on Atom at the moment.

    I notice Coffee Parts have the Atom for $949 or $944 with their FIRST5 coupon. I don't think the CSCP discount applies to machines or grinders.

    Also, if you're in Sydney, I've received an email from a non site sponsor about an instore only sale where you may be able to pickup an Atom for $799.

    Thought it well overdue to try the new wider delivery spout and clump buster.

    Thanks to CoffeeParts for the fast delivery and great pricing.

    Thanks Mal. It is tasting pretty good. Fluffy grinds and back to accurate grind timing again. Brew made on the Cafelat Robot

    And also trying to revive this old thread. Reading on home barista about someone who fitted the 64mm Atom speciality 65 burr set to the original Atom (50mm). Interesting move. Needs new burr set and upper burr carrier.

    Guess itís possible as the Atom series all share the same body but different motor to suit larger size burrs.

    Now in the lineup there is Atom (50mm), Atom Speciality 65, and Atom Specialty 75 and Atom Pro. +Options for Titanium or Red Speed burrs.

    HB mentions main differences between the Specialty 75 and brew pro as far as i can see are:

    - Different 75mm burr geometry
    - 920W motor VS 800W
    - Vents on the side of the casing
    - New design lower skirt
    - Bigger diameter adjustment knob for the stepless micrometric regulation system
    - Grinding chute
    - V60 Holder
    - comes standard with the "Blow Up" system

    Hello, has anyone had problems with this model of it locking up and the engine not starting normally?


    I'm desperate, I can't think of anything else to try, I've replaced the funnel with the latest version that was supposed to fix the problem...
    I leave the video where my problem is best seen:

    Yes. Looks similar to what Iíve had happen once or twice - pressing the button actives timer on the display but not motor to grind chamber.

    It has happened after coffee got down in to the body and base and on to the circuit board and omron timer.

    - What I did to fix mine:

    Remove bean hopper.

    Vacuum out the top of the grind chamber.

    Ideally take the top plate off and chute so you can vacuum out below grind chamber to prevent further grinds falling down below in the next step.

    Unplug grinder from power.

    Lay grinder down on its side and remove the screws holding the plastic base in place. Thereís a very long thin one on the base near the front side of the grinder.

    The base should come off fairly easily and if not there is likely a screw still holding it in place.

    See what falls out but I would expect there to be a mound of coffee grounds on the board.
    More vacuuming. Then reassemble.

    Hope this helps.

    (Of course after all that there could be an actual problem with the circuit board... but given it has activated the motor once in the video but then only the timer Iíd give the deep clean a go first)

    I have a completely different grinder so this may be irrelevant, but try changing the adjustment to a much coarser setting.
    Sometimes I get a bean stuck which stops the whole motor starting.
    Worth a try.

    Thanks for the help, the interior should be clean, I disassembled it, I changed the motor capacitor in case it failed (it was fine since with the new one it does the same problem). I recorded a new video, the problem is clearer.


    I thought I had it fixed and the problem was grinding the beans too fine, but it wasn't, if I try to grind too fine it's hard to grind and hardly any coffee comes out, but even if I grind coarse so that the coffee falls out too fast, it gets blocked and the grinder doesn't work.


    There goes the video:

    I had this problem with dark roasted oily beans in the Atom. What beans are you using? Mine were from Merlo and kept clogging the funnel and burr surrounds. Also after you clean out the schute and burr assembly, I would wash everything in hot soapy water to remove coffee oils, let it dry and try some different beans.

    The good thing with the 65 and 75 coming out is that the original 60 can be had for $900 with shipping so decided to buy one.
