The Mazzer Mini was originally designed for commercial use but with today's high-end kitchens and discriminating customers, the Mazzer Mini has moved into the home. If you're looking for a grinder that can grind to any specification such as espresso or drip coffee, the Mazzer Mini with its infinite adjustment lever can do it with ease. It is very quiet due to its direct drive system. With a super strong 250 watt motor it will not bog down under load and will last a lifetime. The Mini can be adjusted to dispense anywhere from 5.5 grams to 9 grams with each pull of the dispensing handle. The Mazzer Mini is now available with the timer control. The timer can be set for up to 60 seconds of continuous grinding. This is also a safety feature as this grinder is nearly silent when running without beans in the hopper. You will not be able to leave it on by accident. The large 58mm burrs are made of 100% Swedish hardened steel and are known as the best in the industry. They are easy to access for cleaning and better yet, very easy to recalibrate after cleaning. The bean hopper can be removed with the beans still in it allowing you to easily swap beans. It weighs 22 pounds, is incredibly well engineered and is the type of equipment you would be proud to have in your home or business.
