  1. Hi, My current set up is a gaggia classic and iberital mc2. I've had them for about 5 years now and am looking to slowly upgrade to a better set up (possibly a rocket mozzafiato evoluzione r as the espresso machine). I appreciate I wouldn't get the most out of a high end machine with the MC2, so was looking to upgrade the grinder first. I'll probably get a bit more out of the gaggia classic whilst I save up for the coffee machine in the mean time. As the title suggests I have a budget of £300-400 pounds though this is flexible for the perfect machine. I was thinking of either a new
  2. This is how I use my eureka Mignon. Using a ceramic ramekin means I can easily stir the grinds, being ceramic means I don't get any static. I'm Always making two drinks at once so find it easier to just halve the amount that comes out as it can vary slightly by up to a gram either way over the 2x15gms I'm aiming for. I've adopted this method because I don't like grinds getting on the worktop. The scales are on top of an espresso cup that fits perfectly between the two feet of the grinder. The scales are tared with the ramekin on them. I've got the timer set to dispense 15
  3. ​non grinder in full chrome. Comes with instruction book, a new set of burrs and the remainder of the Bella Barista warranty which runs until February 2019. The grinder has only had light use as a second grinder mainly for de caff, and is sitting idle. I am based in the WN6 area of Wigan close to junction 27 of the M6. I would prefer collection as I don't have the original box. £230
  4. Recently bought a Profitec 300 dual boiler and now looking for a grinder that can handle both espresso (I do not make turkish) and french press. Thoughts?
  5. Can anyone say how accurate the timer function is on the mignon? Ive had mine a few days now and am getting quite a bit of variation, but then im trying to alter it very slightly to tweak the amount dispensed. Im doing my best to make sure the chute is clear of any grinds between doses by using a pastry brush and or rocking the machine to dislodge any grinds in the chute. Im trying to keep the same amount of beans in the hopper within reason. I appreciate the timer might vary from bean to bean,(?) , but for the sake of this question lets assume im using a kilo of the same bea
  6. Hi All, I purchased this in June 2015 from Bella Barista, it is the plumbed/tanked version but I have only used the reservoir with bottled water. I used it quite a lot to start, but then I moved house at the end of last year and have never really got back into it and am drinking brewed pretty much exclusively now. Will have a year of warranty from Bella Barista assuming that it transfers. Always back flushed with water & puly caf regularly. I also have a Eureka Mignon MKI for sale, a Rocket naked portafilter with 15g & 18g VST baskets + stock basket. Also a Made by Knock 58
  7. Following the responses to my previous thread, I think I'm going to buy the Eureka Mignon to go with my Silvia. I'm not in a position to head up to Bella Barista in person, so would appreciate some advice on which black, matt or gloss, would be the best match for my espresso machine? The pics on their website aren't really much help in this regard, as they are pretty small.
  8. Hi there, Newly registered here although it's fair to say I have been lurking and absorbing all the information from this very interesting forum! My main reason for starting to read the forum contents was when my bean to cup machine died on me (although it's ok....don't worry, it has been fixed and I should have it back soon!). But after reading the entries here....unfortunately it is going to cost me lots of money! I have decided to take the plunge and buy a semi-automatic setup as well as keeping my bean to cup machine. I think my lovely wife would possibly kill me if I made her
  9. Eureka Mignon First Impressions (or how to spend a Sunday afternoon wasting a lot of coffee beans and getting as high as a kite on caffeine) I took delivery of my gloss black Eureka Mignon Coffee Grinder last weekend but only today have had a chance to set it up and have a play. The Eureka Mignon is manufactured by Conti Valerio srl in Italy who as far as I can tell mainly manufacture commercial machines and do very little marketing regarding this grinder which is available in the UK from Bella Barista for £260 (and possibly elsewhere). If I might start at the end and say that me and
  10. Hi everyone I would like to buy a Mignon if anyone has one for sale. Thanks John

    Eureka Mignon

    Hi as per title I am looking for a Eureka Mignon, preferably black or white and in good condition. Also would consider new, has anyone had bad experiences with http://www.fridgefreezerdirect.co.uk/ ? £236.86 seems like a good price but why are they labeled as Crem instead of Eureka?
  12. For Sale Eureka Mignon £200 Bought on this forum last month for £200 so looking for the same, plus postage or collection. I have given it another good clean and run about 500g of beans through it. I also bought a SJ at the same time and have decided to stick with the SJ hence the sale.
  13. So I just wondered, with a brand new mignon how do I go about running it in safely? I read it takes a few kg of beans to properly start to season. If I want to run a kg through (stale beans, how long can I use it for continuously? > Can I run the kg through in one go (4 x 250g batches) > Should I run 250g through at a time and leave it inbetween? > Or should i grind a few cups at a time and take a few days to run the kg through? Thanks
  14. Title has it all really but - I'm after a used Gaggia Classic, budget up to £150 And a used Eureka Mignon, budget up to £200. Thanks very much!
  15. Sorted out an espresso machine, now I need a grinder - would love a Mignon after using one for a bit. Cheers.
  16. Hi everyone, Long time lurker. Apologies for the samey "please help me choose" thread but I am lost in a sea of burrs. I currently have both a Hario Mini Mill & Iberital MC2. I use the MC2 for espresso, the mini mill for everything else. I'm looking to upgrade and my budget is sub £200, ideally more like £100-150. I've done a fair bit of research into manual grinder as I was under the impression you get the best bang for your buck here. I'm still rather lost, so any advice at all would be appreciated. My thoughts/questions so far: Second hand is the obvious way to go
  17. For sale due to finding myself short of time for espresso nowadays and moving more towards filter methods. Bought on this forum last October when it was only a month old. Therefore it still has almost 2 years transferable warranty left with Bella Barista. It also has the original packaging and paperwork and the original hopper and pf rest. By my (rough) calculations taking into account limited use the last few months I'd say its had 800g go through it a month but even rounding up to 1kg a month its only 12kg in the year I've had it. I never used the pf rest and hopper as I made a di
  18. I'm posting this here, as my other thread in the Eureka area is a little dead! (https://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?43057-Burrs-touching-to-get-a-fine-enough-grind) If you've been following - I've discovered that my Mignon II's burrs don't seem to be parallel. I'm getting a chirp when zeroing them out, but it seems to be 'catching' the top burr more on one side than the other, when I turn the bottom burr by hand. I've tried shimming the other side to this high spot, but to no avail so far. So, I'm putting it out there to anyone who might know more than me! What am I doing so wrong?
  19. Since switching to a Niche Zero and Lelit Bianca, I have not had any use for those two. Both were originally purchased new in 2012. Gaggia Classic come with the MrShades PID, and I've done the OPV mod. It comes with single and double baskets, blind filter, a 58mm Motta tamper, and a pressure gauge should you wish to adjust the OPV. Please read the below important information: - both machines are obviously used and do not look as new, check photos to get a precise idea of their current condition - there is not water flow through the main group on the Gaggia Classic. I have had the i
  20. Hi, I'm looking at getting into espresso for the first time, upgrading from using a moka pot and whisk for milk. My budget is flexible up to about £700 (could go a little over) and I was wondering what the advantages of buying new are? I've found the Gaggia Classic Pro for 350 and paired with a Eureka Mignon Specialita this would fill my budget. However, it's tempting to get a second hand Gaggia and perhaps look at cheaper grinders also. I've been searching and pondering for weeks now and could really do with some more knowledgable opinions! Thanks Very Much
  21. I just had the white glove service from Sage. It was easily arranged by an initial email to Coffee Classics who followed-up by phone. The chap drove to Aberdeen from the midlands but had some other visits on the way and has more tomorrow in Dundee and Edinburgh on the way back. He called me on-route to confirm ETA. Since I have had my Dual Boiler and Eureka Mignon grinder for a while now, I have the basics more-or-less in hand but it was good to confirm I was pretty much right in how I am using it for now. The most important thing to me was going through the cleaning and de-scaling procedures.
  22. The coffee gods were looking down on me today, all my deliveries came earlier than expected and all within half an hour of each other! Thanks to @DaveP for the packaging the Mignon so well and sending so promptly and thanks to @Juba for sending his left over acrylic pipe to make a single dose hopper - You've got to love this forum! Now how long will the four bags of HasBean last...
  23. Hi All.. after a few different coffee machines ranging from an old delonghi up to a Sage Barista I have finally bit the bullet to go for something a bit higher end for better steam. Had to get past the Mrs for design to fit the kitchen so have opted for a Simonelli Musica (yes with lights..!). Will be reading the forums with interest, first port of Call for grinder advice, narrowed down to Eureka Mignon, Malhonig Vario or Barratza Sette 270w but will post later for advice! Also potential black Sage Barista for sale! looking forward to reading and sharing, Lee
  24. I'm splitting off from RooniusMaximus' thread to avoid hijacking it (as that's rather rude) and as the questions I'm asking are not entirely pertinent to his situation, even if not totally dissimilar. Hitherto in my espresso making, I've been using a Delonghi Dedica with unpressurized baskets and a Baratza Encore as grinder which struggles to find an appropriate grind that isn't either so fine as to choke the machine or so coarse as to have the water slosh through it at pace. As such, I am looking to change to something else. In a similar situation to the aforementioned RooniusMaximu
  25. I currently have a Feldgrind and would like to get in to the world of electricity. If anyone has either of the these I'd be interested in buying them. Preferably before Christmas Thanks
