The Mazzer Mini does a better job than the grinder at Starbucks and a local roaster. I use a French Press and a Stove Top Moka so I grind both expresso and drip brew grind. The grind on the courser setting is more consistent than I was getting at both Starbucks and a local Roaster. It also...

How big is the box? Thanks.
Are replcement burrs available for the Mazzer Mini and do you regularly keep them in stock?
I am also interested in the silver Mazzer Mini. I noticed the version you have pictured is the original with the plastic tray, and with the cord exiting the rear. Is this the actual model for sale? Or is it the newer version 2 with metal tray, and cord exiting the bottom?
We are going to be purchasing the mazzer mini grinder. We are trying to decide between the silver and black. We have stainless steel in our kitchen and black granite. Our espresso machine is stainless. Is the silver of the mazzer more of a shiny chrome or more of a stainless steel finish? If the color is not stainless-we should probably go with black so that the metals do not clash. Is any of the body plastic? Does either of the machines read as more high quality? The photos are not enough to tell completely which one would work better. Anything you can say would be helpful.
I purchased a Mini Mazzer LUIGI 5 years ago and have been pleased overall. I mostly drink Espresso-based drinks but recently decided to use it for drip coffee. I am unsure of the grind settings to use. I bought a Keurig with the idea I could also grind small amounts for individual cups. What settiing is best for drip? Is the setting for a Keurig the same?
I bought this to grind espresso and drip. I don't think I can adjust it coarse enough for drip. The factory setting sticker is over the 8. When making adjustments for drip it only adjusts to about the 9 1/2 mark before it hits the set screw that stops it. I would like a little more adjustment. Is there anything I can do to get a more course grind? I am not sure this would even be a problem if the factory setting was at a lower number. Thanks for any suggestions.
I have a Jura Z5 and Illy ground decaf coffee clogs it. At $300 to repair it, I want to buy a burr grinder that I can use to buy whole Illy decaf beans, grind them and then place the grounds into the chute of the Z5 to make decaf for my guests. The regular hopper in the Z5 is filled with regular beans, so I need a grinder specifically for the decaf guests. Will the Mini be a grinder that you recommend or something else?
What is the difference between the "prosumer" model and the "new" model.
can the masser mini be converted from a doser to a doserless machine
