  1. 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 / Liverpool Street / Spitalfields (London).
  2. has anyone figured out how to mod their mk2 or older for the same effect? They look, from the outside, pretty similar / identical in the way the coffee is despensed so I am guessing there is some kind of voodery in the chute to stop clumping? The clumping on mine is annoying when I go too fine. Having dyspraxia means I end up spilling coffee everywhere trying to stir it with a cocktail stick...
  3. 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)
  4. Quick video of it along side my MK2: Just running some waste beans though, will update once I’ve made a brew.
  5. 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). The whole point is to have something inconspicuous and clean looking on the counter top - I have looked at Mazzer Mini i.e., but this is too voluminous. I do not need the big hopper either as I weigh my beans and do not make more than a couple of cups per day anyways. Suggestions are highly welcome and should not be too difficult. After all, if Elon Musks team managed to land a couple of space rockets perfectly after shooting them up into space, surely there is a grinder out there......?
  6. 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 Pick up in Oxford area - will ship if buyer arranges courier Many thanks,[ATTACH=CONFIG]31915[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]31912[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]31919[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]31920[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]31912[/ATTACH]
  7. Hi all, currently waiting on a feldgrind but also considering buying a new mignon at the moment. However given a budget of £300 and pairing it with a gaggia classic for espresso use only (probably use feldgrind for aeropress and pour over) would you get a new mignon with the 3 yr warranty and a decent resale value or go second hand and get something better on paper? Ive been looking at eBay like a hawk and on here but not seen anything yet that looked better than a mignon at this money. I'm not keen on a SJ just because they look too big and clunky and won't fit where I need it to go. Therefore size is also an issue. I am a total novice here so seeking the thoughts of more expert people. Thanks!
  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. So it is my 31st birthday today...parents bought me a Mignon mk2 which is...a very nice surprise to say the least! Setting the grind seems difficult there is no marker as to where it is set at... I have it set about 3 points from max fine setting. It clumps quite a bit and sprays out a little far, other than that it is lovely. I just had a cup of gaslight that BB sent with it, which surprised me as blends normally are eugh to me but no, was a very nice cup of coffee especially considering I do the milk in a jug in the microwave for 1:10 because the steam wand on the Dehlonghi doesn't work (last time I used it on old machine it broke the output on the brew group!) A machine will be my next purchase for around £1k. Saved me £900 because I was going to buy a 75E next week. Thanks
  10. 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.
  11. 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 .
  12. For sale is my Fracino Cherub espresso machine + Eureka Mignon grinder, with a few extras, all for £600. Hoping to sell as all items together at this stage, but if there is no interest in the full package after a week or so I’ll consider splitting the cherub and the grinder. Collection or local delivery only at this stage - the machine is in Fife (near Dunfermline), and I work near Glasgow. The Cherub I bought the machine from michaelg (forum member) in December 2014, and I believe he bought the machine from shrink (also a forum member), who originally purchased it around Jan 2013 from Espresso Underground (I’m copying some of this from michaelg’s advert in 2014…he might be able to confirm the history of the machine, but any mistakes in this are entirely my fault!!). The machine is in excellent working order, serviced and new pump fitted by Espresso Services in Glasgow when I bought it. Regularly back-flushed. It has only lived in Scotland so scale shouldn't be an issue at all. Included in the sale of the machine (as shown in the photos): · Standard fixtures and fittings as the machine is sold with · Replacement steam arm from Londinium (so thread is on steam tips not the wand) with 4x1.2mm, 4x1mm, 2x1mm and 3-hole Tidaka tip. The original wand with tips is also available should you prefer it · Steam and water taps and bottomless portafilter handles made from bubinga wood (from Peter Bradley at Avicenna's Solution) (machine is currently fitted with the original handles) · Two spout portafilter handle. · Strada basket · IMS shower screen (original also available) · Motta tamper · Tamping mat · Grinderstein knock-box · Blind filter · Half a tub of puly caf + cleaning brush · I don’t have the original box, sorry The Mignon I bought the machine originally from Machina Espresso in Edinburgh in December 2014, but there was a problem with the original so this is a replacement, I think about 12 months old (don’t have exact dates, sorry…). Mark 2 version in gloss black. According to my Rave order history it’s been through around 10kg of beans so still pretty fresh. Excellent condition, as I hope the photos show. Again, I don’t have the original box – over-zealous spring-clean at the start of the year… Happy to give you a demo if you live locally. Photos below (I'll add another couple of photos in a few mins), please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
  13. I'm looking for something to experiment with over the next few months, trying V60, aeropress, espresso etc. Originally I was looking at an MC2 and also thinking of the Mignon but the price would be a big stretch. The other option I'm considering is the Feldgrind, seems to be much better at swapping between the various brew methods than the stepless electric ones but how does it stack it up against those for expresso usage? Is the hand grind effort going to be a put-off for 4-6 espressos a day?
  14. Good afternoon, As a newbie I've been doing a bit of reading and am slightly confused on something and needed a bit of clarification. I've been looking at the Eureka Mignon, while being quite popular on this forum as a good entry level grinder it suffers from clumping every now and again. When preparing a shot does clumping really effect the quality and the channelling of the shot being made ?? Even if tamping correctly ??
  15. Pics to follow. Mignon is soldEureka Mignon was bought from Bella Barista at the end 05/2014/ beginning 06/2014 and used until the beginning of September this year. It has had less than 20kg of beans through it in total. No chips, scratches dings etc £200 Folder for images: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3_FPdg-4pemYkIzWnF4Z2wwOHc&usp=sharing La Pavoni Professional is much loved and that is why I have been reluctant to sell it after getting my Brewtus in May. I changed the brew gaskets and pulled a couple of shots on it before emptying the boiler and putting it into retirement. Before shipping I'll change the gaskets again if necessary, give it a clean and pull a couple of shots for the last time to check everything is fine. The boiler and group are in incredible condition. Internally the group has its chrome in tactInternally the group has its chrome mostly in tact with very little evidence of staining/copper deposits/or wear considering its age, and there are no scratches or gouges that can affect its ability to pull a good shot. No scratches to the boilerA couple of small scratches to the boiler and only the very slightest sign of pitting in a small spot half way up between the base and group. Unfortunately there is some light rust to the base beneath the drip tray but it's completely concealed with the tray in place. The Pavoni comes with the portafilter made bottomless by me and a single hole steam tip. Also has the original three hole steam tip and a double, single and elektra filter basket which allows a larger dose. Motta tamper is included along with Motta group brush, thermometer and small 30cl (I believe but will check) milk jug. £350​ £320 Price reduction due to remembering the power switch could do with being replaced and for an extra £4 I'll order the part and replace it myself (it's a simple push out and push in job). The power button is functional, but as the pictures show it exposes cables when in the off position. The chrome in the group appears to have water stains or copper deposits, or it could be uneven wear but I don't know why that would happen. There's also a small scratch towards the bottom of the group which I must have done when changing the gaskets last time, but it doesn't affect the shot. The rust on the underside of the base is only very slight and I think it would be easy to remove with a little elbow grease. I've added pictures of the internals of the group and the group slot which shows minimal signs of wear. The gaskets are still good and I've lubricated the rollers and slot generously. I've attempted to picture all of the flaws I could see. As I've shown in this post I've discovered a couple of things I wasn't aware of before and I've tried to correct myself and represent everything as accurately as possible. I changed the heating element gasket when I got the machine to check the heating element for cracks or damage, but I'm reluctant to take it out again for the purposes of taking a picture as it would be a waste of a gasket and a lot of time to replace it and check for leaks. Folder for images: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3_FPdg-4pemOEZwRWRMWlVjbXM&usp=sharing Also available is a chrome LP sub base with knock out draw £30, which I'd prefer to ship with the machine.
  16. 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 here, but not much coming up lately that is within driving distance (I'm very hesitant to trust my luck with getting anything of this value posted). Annoyingly the most restrictive factor is the ubiquitous kitchen cabinets, and lack of kitchen real estate! Which seems to rule out most if not all of the usual suspects in the 2nd-hand £200-400 market. Please correct my if I'm wrong! My machine is a Gaggia Classic, not had it long and still learning the ropes. I don't see myself upgrading any time soon, but who knows eh! Thanks Ian
  17. As title really. I like the look of the Vario, but the Mignon looks and feels a bit better put together. In terms of features and performance, is there much between them? EDIT: I should add, I'm coming from an MC2 so looking for a worthwhile upgrade. Currently paired with a Gaggia Classic but the plan is to upgrade this later in the year too... Thanks!
  18. 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
  19. I am in the UK and wish to start my journey with espresso making. I have been manually brewing coffee with a siphon and a cafetiere for a few years now with a hand grinder. I am looking at getting a Gaggia Classic - second hand it seems you can find them in decent condition for ~£200, though I am happy to be swayed to a different option if I can understand the merit (and justify additional cost!) For a grinder I have been looking at the Mignon Manuale as an option as it has a stepless adjustment and is also not bank breaking. However I understand the coffee starts with the grind so here I am willing to spend a bit more money if it is worth it. I have been struggling to find shops in the UK that stock these grinders. I was recommended the Niche Zero and I would love to buy one of these but I can't really justify £500 for a new one. However I am also of the school of thought that it's better to buy once than go cheap and buy twice. Thank you!
  20. Hi all, I've got a Sage Smart Grinder at the moment but I'm having trouble getting the volume right: one setting gives me 19g for a double but is too full for the portafilter (leaves an imprint when dry). And the next setting (16g ish) means I have to go right to the finest grind to slow the stream down to the treacle trickle, and even then it's not fine enough. I'm thinking of upgrading to a Mignon. Is the volume / timer setting on the Mignon notched or continuous? And has anyone had a problem needing to go finer than the finest grind setting? Thanks for any help!

    Mignon mk2

    Hi, just got a silvia v3 and looking for a Mignon mk2. Not worried about the colour. best wishes Mike
  22. Hi, After narrowly missing out on the one that popped up on the for sale sub forum I realised that it is a Mignon I really want. So I'm after a doserless Mignon, any colour, any condition, any hopper size and no preference over mk1 or mk2 so to speak. I know its a long shot and !most get snapped up quick in the for sale section. Thanks Adam
  23. Hi all, Just a quick post to let everyone know we now stock the Eureka Mignon in all the colours including the new Anthracite and Amaranth. http://www.machina-espresso.co.uk/collections/grinders-domestic-eureka *Just to add: We hold ALL items in stock. Cheers! Machina
  24. Hi coffee people, I am new here and got some questions. I currently brew espresso using Rocket Premium Plus v3 (the PID one) and Eureka Mignon. I wanted to get a Mazzer when I bought the Rocket, but I had to get a Mignon for money reason. After few month with Rocket and Mignon, now I have extra cash to spend on Mazzer Mini. BUT I am quite happy with Mignon. It's well built, solid, very easy to make adjustment, nice looking and small. But obviously somehow Mazzer looks good. Probably because I see them in almost every corner of street. My question is, is it worth selling the Mignon for about £200 (after owing it for only 3 month), then spend another £400 to get Mazzer Mini E? Will it improve my coffee? Will I be able to taste the difference? Less clump compared to Mignon? (with Mignon, I currently grind the coffee into a little glass and stair it with a chop stick to de-clump the grind, then pour into basket.) I usually get weekly coffee from, Monmouth, Nude Espresso, All Press or Pact Coffee. Thanks in advance.
  25. Just invested in a R58 from the exceptional bellabarista - looking forward to improving my technique with practice (because I certainly need to!)
