    Mazzer Mini Single Dose hopper mod

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys,

    My wife is requesting more decaf these days (no idea why she would) which is leading me down the path of single dosing. Does anyone know of a place I could get either a cap or aluminium shaft to replace the standard hopper on my Mazzer mini? This way I can weigh in the single dose swill, I mean decaf...(and probably weigh on the way out to make sure the grinder fairy's don't take too much).

    Any experience with this? Appreciate the help!

    Not sure if it will work for the Mini but I've found on my grinder a combo of the funnel that comes with the aeropress and the existing hopper lid works for me (YMMV).

    Add spacers made from old yoghurt / ice cream container lids can also help stop beans popping up.

    I think you will find you can squeeze enough into the throat of your MM for a single dose. Just find something to put over the top to stop the beans from pop-corning. Otherwise there are jam-funnel mods - just google mazzer jam funnel.

    A 58mm tamper base fits nicely and I'm pretty sure the throat will handle 18 grams of beans, probably 20 without difficulty, yep tried it in the past.

    I use a 58mm collapsible rubber lens hood for cameras. I like the Phot-R brand as it doesn't stink like cheap Chinese rubber. It allows you to puff out the grinds chamber and exit chute by collapsing it up and down a few times so retention is minimal.

    As above the throat should be plenty capacity for a double. I use a double wall basket (found a use for it!!!) as a temporary lid.

    Treat your wife to some Decaf WOW from here, it's delicious.

    Cheers
