    does your mazzer mini move?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    had a very brief play with the mini a few days ago and was surprised that it shifted when i was thwacking. it was on a kitchen bench (the standard melamine, or whatever its called).

    anybody else find this happening?

    i know on my iberital, it moves a little when it has grinds on the rubber feet pads, but thought this wouldnt happen on a heavy mini...

    what do u guys/gals find?

    Hi Roknee,

    Are there coffee grounds under your minis feet? My mini moves unless the bottom of the feet are clean,

    Yes my benchtop is granite which is also quite slippery. Frustrating, but I solved it on the weekend with a small seagrass mat something like this. There are probably other types of mats that would do as well. Someone mentioned they bought something (rubber flooring??) from Clarks Rubber that did the job.

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    i found that (my bro in laws) mini moved around when i was thwacking.
    made me think about how much that would annoy me at home. i guess the rubber mat or the like would be a great option.

    chris - your k10 moves? (shouldve got a robur, eh? ;) )

    who else has a dosered grinder that moves around when being thwacked?

    ta guys

    My mazzer used to drive me nuts when it would go walkies. Found it was somewhat dependent on the surface.

    The K10 is on a stainless bench and only moves when I pick it up.

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    Ive seen Roburs move. It depends on how hard youre thwacking. I reckon my SJ moves a bit, not much but a bit. Especially cos its on a glossy Corian-esque benchtop. Its not dramas though, doesnt move enough to make it an issue. I reckon its got better since Ive had it as the dosing lever has loosened up a bit from when I first got it and theres not as much resistance in the thwack as there used to be.
    Just gotta keep those little rubber nubs clean. No biggie.

    My Macap moves when on the benchtop.
    Then again, anything I hit moves.
    Ive since bought a large rubber mat from Di Bartoli and it now doesnt move as much.

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    yeah ive noticed my mini moves around a little, it sits straight on the benchtop though and with rubber feet or not id expect it to move the way i hang off it :)

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    funny coz just yesterday both the BNZ and the mazzer major both shifted a little as i dosed. im pretty sure i havent seen the robur move though..

    moving grinders (and espresso machines) annoy me....ggrrrrr

    tgs idea sounds like the solution for my home setup

    The mat catches a few loose grinds too so I dont have to clean up the benchtop as often.

    My Mazzer Mini stays in its place now that Ive moved. Both places have laminate benches, the new one is more textured though, so I guess it has something for the rubber feet to grip on to.

    mine is on ceasor stone benchtop and does not move around when clean. Once it get a little dirty it can then start to move a little. A quick wipe down of the bench top and its good again

    Our La San Marco SM-90A doesnt go anywhere and I guess at 14Kgs that is no surprise ;)....

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    My mini moves, my SJ does not. I shall give those feet on the mini a clean after reading this and and see if I can keep her grounded. They are on different surfaces, but Im guessing it is mostly about the weight.

    Re: does your mazzer mini move?

    I say its the surfaces.
    My Macap moves.
    I cleaned the feet yesterday and it was pretty still this morning.
    The Macap is no lightweight.

    Net weight of the M5 is 9 kg and the nett weight of the Mini is 10.kg so they compare for weight, so if TGs clean feet make a difference it seems that "clean feet will not be fleet, when moving grinder challenges you have to meet".

    Cheers

    Nice rhyme.

    As I said.

    The surfaces.
    The material of the bench and feet must make a difference.
    Any dust (coffee or otherwise) or grease etc will probbaly contribute to slippage.
