Detailed Commentary

I decided to upgrade my espresso making at home. After much reading on here I figured that the grinder was the best place to start. Actually I started with an I-Roast2, but that’s another review. My old grinder was a DeLonghi Retro DCG59 Electric Burr Grinder and other than being noisy seemed fine to me. Now I know what a grinder should be. The Mazzer Mini is a treat to use and really makes the money it cost seem irrelevant after using it for a month now. I have played a bit with the grind settings and have two spots I use regularly. One for espresso and the other for my drip coffee. My espresso improved on the 1st pull. I have a Breville café roma espresso machine that I will upgrade soon, but for now it works. My espresso has more body and flavor than ever. The best crema I could get was very blond and not too thick. Now I pull a marbled crema of blonds and darker that is very thick and long lasting. The grinder is super quiet so I can use while the wife is sleeping (worth the price right there). I have the low profile hopper and it fits under my kitchen cabinet just fine with room to add beans without moving the Mini. I am very happy with this purchase so far and would recommend the Mazzer Mini to anyone

Buying Experience

I bought online from the greenbeanery.ca and had no complaints. The grinder was packaged well and arrived in a week undamaged.
