Subject: EU based online retailers for Mazzer
 

Hi

its seems that I am about to buy a Mazzer mini (timer or electronic still to be determined) and have decided to widen my search to cover EU based online retailers.  As I am in the UK I can only import from within the EU without getting hit for duty and customs so no US online retailers.

In the UK the two cheapest online retailers I have located are A1 and coffeeitalia (with mixed reports) there are others but these are the cheapest.

Any reputable EU online sites that have the Mazzer mini and will ship within the EU?

thanks coffeegeeks!

thanks for the reply with retailers.  I guess I was hoping for a cheaper EU retailer, varierty and stock levels are good, but overall more than I am prepared to spend.

Most of the members in my forum were bought their Mazzer electronic from this shop:
Click Here (www.specialtycoffee.nl)
p&p to Greece was around 25

On the other hand a large number of members bought from the sister site of coffeeitalia.co.uk in Germany (coffeeitalia.de) the combo Silvia+Vario and there was not any single bad report about them. So, I do not know, check how much money you save and make your decisions.

Check as well who sells the grinder with the newest keypad. From the photos, it looks like the dutch shop sells the newest version whereas the coffeeitalia the old one. But photos in the on-line shops are not necessarily the correct ones so you better ask them.

Just an afterthought, but do you know the UK based online shop CoffeeHit?

You're just gonna have to accept that these grinders are quality, and good value for the prices you are seeing, albeit more than you want to pay.  

~500-550 inc VAT and delivery is quite a good price today, based on historical prices + inflation + a higher rate of VAT than a few years ago.

I think you were looking at the Vario as an alternative ? so if you need a grinder now, perhaps that's the one you have to go for instead.
