Mazzer major doserless mods


Recommended Posts

Just re-watched it again....how come you didn't use the Rocket-blower on the "doser-cap-hole" whilst it was grinding away ?

FWIW i do :- cap-funnel-cap-funnel with the blower as quick as i can.

I assume it's a NEW workflow routine and it takes a bit of getting used to compared to your old routine ??

Now obviously i cant use it with the massive dosing chamber on the front, so tools out and removed it,  After that i made a phone call to a friend @Rumpelstiltskin who expertly walked me through

Very tidy. Given your recent Ebay experiences - you were due some luck.

Glad i could help you matey, it was my pleasure....i'm here to learn about coffee and give as much help back as i can.

Purely cos of the above cupboards, dont have the space, 

I cant get the blower to the top hole, cup wise sometime i spary my beans for static, so the small cup gets the water, the large cup never gets wet then, but its also height again, not enough room. Fwiw i dont spray every bean. 

Whats good is the big cup is exactly 100g

Yeah i've heard of a few peeps that use those felt pads...i don't need them for my coffee setup but they will (not purchased yet) help out with something else i move/slide...local squid shop had them last time i was in, failing that B&Q should have em.

Nice looking Major. Mine's a bit more battered than yours but the same model and with Ti burs. A lot better with the Daniel Wong kit that's for sure.

@Rhys yeah ive been really happy with it, the kit esp, fits so well and great build quality, i cant get over the speed it got here. 

Im getting into a good rhythm now with it, i tend to give most beans a rdt now just to help, only thing you tend to have to do is tap the shoot out. 

I believe you can get up graded burrs, but not sure if they change the profile or are just designed to take more beans before dulling.

I wouldn't worry about the burrs. They'll probably last longer than you. They're meant to grind several kilos a day not grams. 😁

Yeah, the only annoying thing is retention in the chute but that's not a biggy.

I see you didn't put the little white rubber grommet in the hole. Although I got the metal cap as well which also has a hole in it so you can blow down through the burrs. I think the grommet will stop any fines coming out when you do that.

Used mine tonight as I have it set up for a dark roast decaf. Although when I use the Niche at my other half's house it pees out of the La Pavoni, but the Major makes a lovely job of it through the Slayer.

The rubber grommet kept coming out of mine.

Just stick your finger over the hole whilst grinding, tis what i do...grinder on, remove finger, blow with puffer, switch to top-hole-blow with puffer, back to funnel hole for a few puffs,,,by this time the beans have been munched, but i still give both holes a quick puff; switch off...job done 💪

Wow stunning set up! Are the Daniel Wong doserless kits still being sold? I’d love one for my SJ.

I have the Mazzer Royal with the collapsible camera lens and funnel, I love it and the taste in the cup is much better than the Niche in my opinion.

Hi there, I've just acquired a Mazzer Royal, do you mind linking the collapsible camera lens and funnel you have please?

If you have other tips, mods for it, I'd love any advice.

Hi, I purchased mine already modded so I didn't change anything myself. The idea was created by a member on here called "coffeechap" and I think he posted a video of the mod. I am sure there is loads of info on the records here if you search it or if you ask the question under the Mazzer grinder section. Sorry I can't be of more help. I am very impressed with mine though, the grind is beautiful and there is minimal retention. The only thing I need is a proper lid for the funnel, someone  on here used to make and sell really lovely wooden ones but not sure if he still does, everyone just wants a Niche now but give it a year!
