    Just bought a new mazzer mini electronic

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just ordered a new Mazzer Mini Electronic A in silver to upgrade from my Rocky which I had with my Silvia now been sold and I have a beautiful ECM Mechanika which I love over the past year and half.
    Great price $869 from DI Pacci Coffee in NSW, also looking at Macap M4D chrome but at $1100 and $1200 dollars I could not resist buying the Mazzer at that price.
    Looking forward to when it arrives and have some fun and dialling it in.

    Let's know what you think when you get it dialled in Gary,

    When are you expecting to receive it?

    Cheers

    Very nice, especially at that price. You can't go wrong with a Mazzer, they are built like tanks. Some will complain that they are slow but for home use, who cares?

    Okay received the Mini last week and i have dialled it in, but now i am experimenting around with dose/ratio and different tastes you get from 18g to 19g dose and yield amounts just taking my time as you can chew up whole kg of beans quickly, but i love the Mini and no lumps in the dosing and the micro adjustments you can make.

    The Mazzer is a very capable and durable grinder GC, tends to get overlooked by the boy racers of our forum because of the perceived need for speed and bling.

    I'm sure your Mazzer will still be going strong and doing an excellent job when many of the newer offerings are residing in land fill.

    My Mini is going strong at 4 years old now i think. Shot counter at almost 8000, though half of those would be a full 25 second dose. I love it.

    The Mini is underrated. I get a bit annoyed when people get negative about it. It was specifically designed for people like us who are low volume users and is extremely well built and designed.

    I've got the Mazzer Maxi (Robur) but I can appreciate all of these machines. I enjoyed my Rocky too and it did a great job for me for 12 years. I sold it for a good price as well. I think Mazzer know what they are doing. If you look at grinders that use small motors revving at high RPM to do shots quickly, it heats the coffee grind and that is never a great idea. They are also noisy.

    The Mini isn't designed for speed just a good grind.

    My Robur is very quick but then you would expect that with a 900W motor and massive burrs. I got a great buy on it $1180 brand new with GST and delivery so I feel that was a good choice for me.


    It takes up more room in the kitchen than yours (my wife reminds me).
