    Eureka Atom 300g Round Hopper

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I just started using one of these. The reason is unless you do use quite a full hopper, the original hopper, to me, is a fail in functionality, even if it looks nice. It should be round.

    The new hopper also has a base with vanes to divide into thirds so some thought has been put into this. I fill it to just over the top of these vanes to maintain consistent dosing and grinding. This doser fits fine although the screw to secure the hopper doesn't fit with this but really it isn't an issue as the hopper fits snugly in the rubber sleeve anyway.

    Sourced a lid from an Australian based supplier and then cut one of these hoppers down to suit a couple of years ago. Agree with wattgn, the original is a little too much form over function.

    I'm pretty happy with the round Eureka hopper. It has made an excellent grinder pretty well perfect. It doses accurately and quietly and quickly. If Eureka is listening, ditch the standard hopper.
