Positive Product Points

Gear reduction. Grind adjustment.

Negative Product Points

Springs break.

Detailed Commentary

First of all, the gear reduction allows this machine to run continually for hours. At high volume cafes, this is a huge asset, especially if you have had a Super Jolly or Major overheat and need some quite time to figure itself out. That is the biggest positive!
Like all the Mazzers I have worked with, it has a great adjustment lever, nice smooth doser, and is relatively easy to clean/work on/change burrs.

The biggest detriment, like all the Mazzers I have used, Mini thru to Robur, is the spring in the doser. It is a fairly low grade appearing, spiral torsion type spring, that breaks in a very similar place time after time. Not very likely in a Mini (you are not dosing hundreds of shots a day) but in the big boy, the Robur, you see it happen sometimes with alarming frequency.

Buying Experience

Nuova Ricambi is a wonderful retailer.  They saw our need, and recomended the right tool for the job.
