FS: Mahlkonig/Baratza Vario or swap for Eureka Mignon

Good working condition 

I bought this here a while ago as noisy and very sluggish - all good now


comes with ceramic burrs installed plus steel burrs

there is a chip in one of the steel burrs which does not affect the cutting edges:


I have no original box


I would like £200 including shipping to the UK via Hermes - PayPal only

Or I'll swap for your Eureka Mignon

there is a crack at the bottom of the catchcup + the portafilter holder was damaged in transit to me

Thanks Gforce - who I bought it from

Obviously this is open to offers as I'm not good at pricing

Has been completely stripped down and rebuilt/recalibrated and is functioning as it should

There is a modification on the circuit board - a jumper has been placed across terminals which allows it to run without the hopper installed

It has a metal pulley + good belt and motor + new feet

I use this several times a day with no issues and I am quite happy with it - I use a La Pavoni Stradivari and the coffee is good (former hand grinder user but arthritis)

Unfortunately my partner does not like its appearance... she does, however, agree that the Mignon is a good alternative as we restructure our kitchen

She would also tolerate a Niche Zero if anyone would like to swap ;)
