  1. ...so the deep end it is. Eureka Mignon Mk2 with a Quick Mill Verona -- all pre-loved, but new to me! I've yet to pull a good shot (and I'm down ~400g coffee already), but I'm sure I'll get there.
  2. Hi guys, I have a 2006 Gaggia Classic. I am looking to buy my first grinder but I’m having difficulty settling on a model. I have about £350 to spend. Ideally I’m looking for a new grinder due to warranty etc. I couldn’t fit a Mazzer etc given my current lack of kitchen space! Up until about a month ago I drank espressos - about 5 doubles a day I think. However, I have recently discovered the joys of pour over coffee so I am thinking about whether I need to be looking for an all purpose grinder rather than an espresso grinder. I do like the eureka specialita and thought I’d settled on this til
  3. S O L D Selling my trusty Mignon.This is a superb little grinder and ideal for anyone starting out ( and indeed beyond ) in their quest for a great home produced Espresso. Purchased circa 2010 in Italy ( with EU two pin plug ). I have taken to the upgrade path as such this now destined to be loved by a new owner. The doser spring was replaced April 17 by Jordan at BB. ( I requested a Burr change but cannot locate the evidence, images of burrs are attached however ) In perfect working order. More images available if required. **£130 including spare set of burrs
  4. Easy question really. Is the 75E worth £300 more than the 65E? Thinking of upgrading from mignon mk2. not had it long so should be worth around £225-250. Which means for £350 I can upgrade to a 65E or for £650 I can upgrade to a 75E. Reasons? 1. Better quality coffee! I have started buying better coffee, filtered water, and have a machine that will keep up with a mythos apparently (gaggia classic with mods). I have noticed the coffee I like needs to be fine to taste good and my current grinder, although brilliant, doesn't offer enough adjustment. If I go finer the machine
  5. wanted new/used preferably good condition and near yorkshire
  6. Picked this up yesterday - a deal from the sales thread First thing I thought, I should give it a clean. Start as you mean to go on and all that. Now admittedly, I could have done a better job, but all things considered I think it cleaned up very well. https://photos.app.goo.gl/vB0Caz4aoD06THjT2
  7. Hi, As I am on my quest to upgrade my grinder situation I have inevitably come across the Mignon in the electric grinder department. From what I can see it seems like a great entry level grinder for espresso that will not leave me wanting to upgrade within 6months. I think I could cope with the clumping problems as I would likely dose and then grind into small vessel and transfer to the PF anyway. My main question for people who have used the grinder is, how good is this grinder/how easy is it too switch from espresso to brewing say aeropress or v60? I know it is a stepless grinder s
  8. it seems once it gets past a certain fine setting it doesn't put any grinds out whatsoever. All the motions are made, and it sounds as though the burrs are rotating, however no coffee comes out. I feel like i need a finer grind, as am producing no crema whatsoever with the La Pav. Any advice?
  9. Hi everyone, Looking to finally upgrade from my Iberital MC2. Ideally looking for Baratza Sette 270 or Eureka Mignon for around the £200 mark, although open to discussion depending on condition etc. Would also consider Sage Smart Grinder Pro for around the £100 mark. Please let me know if you have anything going. Thanks.
  10. Black. Unmarked. Spare set of burrs (still sealed). Timer and Manual modes. UK plug. Purchased June 2016 from Bella Barista; warranty until 2nd June 2019. I’ve replaced this Mignon with a Niche – otherwise I would not have considered parting with this little 5kg beastie. Used for 2 shots daily, so about 30kg in total. Smoke free home. £180. Cash on collection or PayPal or Monzo. Postage will be extra based on location and insurance requirements. No original box, but I’ve plenty of packaging materials. Collection from Hither Green (SE13) or Cannon Street / L

    Hello everyone, Thanks for having me on the forum. I'm just getting started on the coffee journey. A recent trip to Milan opened my eyes to espresso and the delights of affogato! I'm so thankful for all the advice on this forum - I'll post more about myself in the Intros section...
  12. Grinder bought from Bella Barista in August 2017. Has had about 5/6kg through it. Transferrable warranty good until 23.08.2020. Excellent condition - no scratches, marks or cracks in the hopper, even has the cellophane on the rear branding I noticed the other day. Original packaging, and will be double boxed if you require a courier. Located near Wrexham if you prefer to collect. SOLD at £200 + Courier cost (I’d estimate £10)
  13. I have used a Eureka Mignon loaner for about a week now, and I have to say it is not performing well. The reason for ordering this grinder was it´s stylishness, counter-top friendly size and what one would assume to be excellent product quality. But this machine must have something of a temperament..... It has a huge and thick power cord (aesthetic let-down), produces clumpy grinds, un-consistent weight output of grinds compared to same amount of beans input and a very messy output (there really is no need to for a diy funnel system or whatnots in 2018 on a properly designed machine).
  14. In view of the grinder discussions going on at the moment I thought I'd just ask if anyone has any experience of the Eureka e75 (slow or fast) against any Mythos (slow, fast or the one.) I.e. is there any advantage, in the cup, of the Mythos approach over the e75?
  15. hey there, selling my grinder due to upgrading to the sette 270 had this for a year, cleaned regularly so still in great shape, no scratches or anything any questions feel free to ask, can collect in West Yorkshire or post for a extra charge .
  16. Hello All, I'm just about to pull the trigger on a used Mignon which I believe is a Mk1 (has the timer on the bottom). Other than the timer location, is there any other difference? The location doesn't really bother me and I always use the same beans so once it's dialled in I'll only need very minimal changes from roast to roast. One thing is, has the MK1 a on demand function or is it purely timer? Thanks in advance.
  17. Hello. I'd like to buy a Eureka Mignon grinder but let me be clear from the off in that I realise it's overkill and that I don't really "need" one..... My question is that I use a Moccamaster for making coffee so would this grind too fine for me and be of no real use? Thanks in advance for any help.
  18. Mini review – Eureka ATOM Imported from Bella Barista UK to Australia, November 2016 The ATOM stands 44cm high with hopper attached, which makes it kitchen cupboard friendly and weighs in at nearly 8.5kg. Finish is up to the usual high Eureka standard, comprising neat cast aluminium for the main body and surrounding the Hi-res colour display and high quality moulded plastics in the dispensing area and base plate. The hopper/lid combo and additional container also continue the theme. There is an easily removable height adjustable PF holder made of an alloy (?) with black powder-coat fini
  19. So I realise that "Grinder options Having recently replaced my Gaggia Classic with a Fracino Ariete, it's the Kitchen-aid grinder's turn to do the walk of shame. I feel compelled to stick up for it now, as it's not as bad as you think. In stock form it's distinctly mediocre, however with Mazzer burrs and a stepless mod it's passable for espresso, even "decent", relatively speaking. But that was with a Classic, and it's now clearly the weakest link, more so than I am, and that's saying something. Moving swiftly on. In the ideal world I'd have something that's minimal faff for si
  20. Hi all, A change in equipment means I'm parting with my current set up. Gaggia Classic with a Rancillio stream wand fitted. Great condition and has had less than 10kg of coffee through it. It's only been run on volvic bottled water and has been back flushed and descaled. £115 posted.SOLD to Smorgo Eureka Mignon MK2 grinder in gloss black, very little use £160 posted. SOLD I will happily reduce the prices for collection from Manningtree Essex. I travel through east Anglia so I may be able to deliver by arrangement. Thanks for looking, Regards Dave
  21. So the Eureka Mignon mk2 fits my budget, even though it's looks aren't much along side a nice Sylvia. It get quite good reviews on here. I would like a new machine as it is easier for a few reasons, shipping especially. if you had my budget and were to buy new what would your choice be? Cheers
  22. Hi folks, I'm just about to take delivery of a new espresso machine and i'm looking at upgrading my Eureka Mignon Grinder too. I love the looks of the Mignon and ideally i'm looking for something with bigger burrs which is easy on the eye and wont take up a huge slice of real estate in the kitchen! I want the best grinder i can get for £700 -£800. So far i'm considering the Eureka Zenith or Mazzer Mini. Quite open to buying secondhand but i'm not really sure which machines fit my criteria. Thanks in Advance. Nick
  23. Hi, I was all ready to pull the trigger on a new Mignon, but BB are out of stock, so that gives me a bit of time to double check my findings... I am looking for a grinder to replace my Baratza Encore for espresso duties. My research repeatedly leads me to a new Mignon, but I wanted to double check I haven't missed any other alternatives. Budget is £300, although I could wait a couple of months and push that to £400. I'm happy to buy second-hand but from what I've seen on ebay I don't have enough knowledge to ask the right questions there, so I've ruled that out. I'd happily buy
  24. Well I finally received my new NS Oscar coffee machine and am thoroughly enjoying it. There's so much to learn though! I now realise I need a new grinder. The Ascaso i2 I have now (bought second hand a few years ago) is the weak link. After lots of reading I've narrowed it down to 2 grinders: Eureka Mignon - €302 ($330, £222) inc. shipping Mahlkonig Vario - €379 ($415, £280) inc. shipping I'm favouring the Eureka because of the price, sturdiness and favourable reviews. I haven't read any reviews that convince me the Vario is definitely worth getting over the Eureka (some pu
  25. Not heard of this before, anyone had any experience with it? 68mm conic so should be up there with some of the Titans... There is a brand new one for £775 available at the moment on Preloved, not interested myself at the moment but seems a good price. Was selling here the other day, looks like he would take £625 http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?24469-Eureka-Olympus-KR-Grinder-New-and-Boxed-%A3700-Inc-Delivery-amp-Insured
