Budget grinder

Recommended Posts

I’ve been mainly looking at the Eureka Mignon an the Mazzer super jolly. I have also seen the Mazzer Luigi. Can anybody tell me what the difference is between the jolly and the Luigi?

my budget is £200 and im after a half decent second hand non doser that is capable of producing a decent espresso grind.

im going round in circles looking at second hand grinders as I really don’t know what is a heap of junk and what is decent! Cheers

Isn't Luigi just part of the Mazzer brand?


ie All Mazzers are Mazzer Luigi?


And models are Super Jolly, Royal etc

There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"

To be fair that’s what I’m all confused with.. Haha. I’m looking at adverts and they all seem to be called something different!

i never thought choosing a grinder would involve so much thought

Yea, generally speaking just ignore the 'Luigi' - if someone has advertised something as a 'Mazzer Luigi' it means they just read the label and wrote down what they saw - not particularly unusual when selling something but doesn't help with the Mazzers.


If you want to know what model your looking at on ebay post a picture here and ask the forum.
