  1. Hi David, turns out my wife did not get the MK2. I just wanted to ask, what is the difference between the MK2 and Manuale? MK2 second hand is same price as Manuale brand new.
  2. Hey guys, I have posted a few times recently regarding what grinder to get for my donated De'longhi Dedica with the input of this great forum I decided on a second hand mignon which I thought my wife bought me for my birthday but it turns out she didn't. After doing some research, I don't want to be in a position where I feel I want to upgrade a few months down the line, I know I'm going to want a new machine if I get a good grinder so, so with that in mind and it being my birthday and Christmas, I've asked anyone who wants to buy me gifts can put towards my coffe
  3. Aaah, I think my wife has already purchased the MK2 second hand, don't think it comes with returns. Thank you for the heads up though, I'll deffo keep BlackCatCoffee in mind for future purchases. -Edit- Actually, do you sell Gaggia or Rancilo machines? What would you suggest to pair with the MK2 Mignon? It's mainly for espresso and what like to create the silky milk as well as I mainly have Flat whites. Cheers
  4. Yep, you're right, I got the price wrong! I thought it said including vat but when I went to purchase it, an extra 75 was added. Silly me. I'm just gonna go with the Mk2, I mean, it's defintely a big step up from what I've got, a great starter grinder for me to learn the ropes, I'm sure I'll be happy with it. Plus, where do you stop! Need to be able to pay nursery fees before I spend £400 On a coffee grinder! Thanks for your input guys
  5. Hey, I've posted a couple times now regarding upgrading my grinder for espresso's (double shots) mainly and have definitely decided to go with the Mignon series.. There are a couple Mignon Mk2's going for £200 There is also a Specialita going for £300 brand new! I think it's because it's in white, which doesn't bother me at all. I am new to this coffee game and have not really dialled in before but I will spend a day with my brother who's a trained coffee barista so I'll have a decent starting point. Is the Specialita worth the extra money over the Mk2
  6. Thanks for your input @Northern_Monkey I will look into hand grinders more and see weigh up what would best suit my needs
  7. Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone has used or know much about the Eureka Mignon 'Crono'? https://www.rountoncoffee.co.uk/shop-c1/brew-equipment-c8/eureka-mignon-crono-p323/s2186?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=eureka-mignon-crono-colour-black-colour-black-eureka-mignon-cronoblack&utm_campaign=product%2Blisting%2Bads&cid=GBP&gclid=CjwKCAiA7939BRBMEiwA-hX5J3cv15G5cNoxnzE7Cb_UiSILb3plED9kV_US7e3iHZ-AYlYXd6kXPBoC-s8QAvD_BwE I'm looking for a good grinder and came across the Crono as the mignon Eureka seems to be a good entry level grinder over t
  8.

  9. Sorry, might be a silly question.. I have a De'Longhi dedica (pressurised filter) machine and am looking to upgrade my grinder. My budget is roughly £150-£200 MAX. I was looking at the Sage Grinder Pro and Ibertal MC2. I just wanted to ask if I was to get something like Eureka Mingnon (second hand), would it make the difference even if I am using the Delonghi dedica? Can the Dedica utilise the better grinders? Also, are there grinders that marry well with particular machines? (Really sorry for all the questions) I'll be using mainly for double s
  10. Hi all, I've been drinking coffee since my little one was born (3 years) and can honestly say, I'm a tad hooked. It was strictly local coffee shops however, 2 cups of cortados a day can end up burning holes the pockets! A friend of mine kindly donated his De'longhi Dedica to me with a De'longhi grinder and i've been really enjoying home coffees, although there has been some trial and error it has been fun. I'm slowly walking down this rabbit hole and finding out this coffee universe is HUGE!!! I'm on the hunt for a decent Grinder but am way more torn than I was b
  11. Thanks for your reply all, i'm staring down the rabbit hole now and don't know if my pockets can afford me to jump in it!!!

  12. Hi all, quite new to the coffee world however I'm loving it! I have a Delonghi Dedica alongside a Delonghi coffee grinder to go with however, the fine grind doesn't seem to be that fine. My wife asked what I wanted for my birthday so I'm thinking....A COFFEE GRINDER!! I've had a look at the Sage Dose Pro Burr grinder, does anyone have this and do you feel it's worth it? Is the grind fine enough? I mainly have cortados/flat whites and occasionally, espressos. If anyone could advise on coffee grinders for what I intend to use, that woul
