EUREKA MIGNON SPECIALITA' COFFEE GRINDER
The Eureka Mignon Specialita’ is an extremely capable home barista coffee grinder that offers you great value for the money. Though this is an all-purpose coffee grinder, the bigger burrs and its name make it especially good for espresso coffee. If you are searching for a true prosumer coffee grinder in a compact size and for very good value, look no further.
Accessories to have absolutely
Specs and Details
The Specialita’ is fitted with 55 mm flat burrs and a stepless micrometric adjustment. Pair this with an incredibly intuitive touch screen for single, double, and manual doses and you will soon understand why this coffee grinder soon became our all-time best seller. There are also other features that you won’t see but you will definitely notice when grinding the coffee: Eureka’s silent technology, for instance, makes it up to 10 dB quieter than the previous generation allowing you to prepare your early morning coffee without waking up the whole family. Moreover, the ACE System (Anti-Clumps & Electrostaticity System) avoids the creation of clumps by eliminating the electrostatic charge of the ground coffee giving you incredibly consistent and linear doses.
Bigger burrs: unlike the Perfetto or the Silenzio, this coffee grinder is fitted with 55 mm burrs instead of 50 mm which enables it to grind up to 1.8 g of coffee each second.
Design and Functionality: we believe that the Mignon more than any other coffee grinder manages to successfully mix a clean and compact design without sacrificing the many incredible innovations fitted in Eureka’s professional coffee grinders.
The Silence: the Specialita' is extremely silent compared to any conventional coffee grinder. This makes it ideal for apartments with thin walls where the noise can easily spread.
Things to Consider
For Espresso Lovers: if you stick to espresso, then this is the one to go for. With bigger burrs and the adjustable fork as standard, this coffee grinder is focused for a home barista layout. If you like to pass between different coffee styles, then we recommend the more versatile Eureka Mignon Perfetto.
Careful with the hopper: the plastic hopper and the lid on top in particular, are fragile and can break if dropped.

Quite good dedicated espresso grinder
I like almost everything about this grinder. The only serious downside is a motor. It uses a direct drive, 300W, AC motor, that drives large burrs. This configuration is bound to have a very low initial torque, so every time you have managed to clog the grinder's shute with oily beans, you will have to take it apart and clean it. Not a big deal, but when you have just 5 min in the morning to make yourself a coffee, this can be very annoying. I myself prefer medium roast, so this issue almost non-existent for me.
Another thing that happens often because of the same motor issue, is a stuck grinder when you take the bin hopper of, and then put it back: the residual bins and their bits that remain on the top of the burrs will be redistributed and pressed down by the hooper’s pipe butt, so that they will be pressed tightly to the burrs, and this pressure is enough to prevent the motor from spinning. The symptom is the same as if the shute is clogged, but in reality, you just need to move the hopper a bit up when the grinder is on, and once it unclogs itself you can press it down firmly again. So, hopefully, this tip can help you.
On the other hand, this motor configuration makes the grinder simple mechanically/eclectically and very reliable. It can serve many many years.
I should mention that my coffee grind is very consistent now, and blind testing showed a noticeable taste improvement compared to my old Breville Smart grinder.
I also really liked the price and the overall service from espressocoffeeshop.com. I ordered it from Canada, and the price, including taxes, custom duties and currier shipping, was still much less than what I could find in Canada (and I was looking high and low), both online and in retail shops. Overall, I am happy with the product and even more happy with the service from espressocoffeeshop.com!
Arrived in less than a week, performs excellently
Great grinder and great service, from Treviso to Sydney in less than 7 days!
Great quality grinder. Easy to operate, grinds coffee beans very precisely, and beautiful to look at!
Very High Quality Grinder and Great Price
I was looking for a good espresso grinder for a reasonable price and decided to try this one. The product arrived to the US from Italy in just a few days, and the transaction went very smoothly. The grinder itself is built very well, and the amount of adjustability is great. It is possible to switch grind sizes, though might require some note taking on exactly where you need the knob positioned for different coffee types. The Perfetto might be a better option if you're brewing a wider variety of coffee types. I really like the timed dispensation, it gives output that's usually pretty close to exactly the correct dose I need for whatever drink I'm making.
Efficient and quiet!
This grinder is hard to beat at the price point. It is very quiet and grinds a double shot in about 9 seconds. The consistency is great and easier to control than my old Baratza 270. It’s also a very beautiful and compact machine on the counter. The adjustment knob allows for a lot of precision but takes a bit of getting used to given how little one has to move it from one roast to the next to dial things in.
Best online shop
First time customer from the Espresso Coffee Shop. I was little a bit worry to make the order all the way from Italy to the US but the package came in perfect and the price is excellent. Thank you very much.
Great Espresso Grinder at home
Outstanding grinding ability
Eureka 100 years legacy
Excellent coffee grinder
We’ve only just bought our first espresso machine and this grinder complements it perfectly. We are still very much novices but love our coffee and find this grinder very easy to use and look forward to honing our skills with it.
Great grinder and fast shipping
The grinder arrived quickly, even though was coming from another part of the world, which is much appreciated. It's a nice grinder that produces nice fluffy grinds, looks stylish on bench and takes a very little space compare to many other grinders with the same burr's size.
Prompt delivery from Italy to Australia and arrived well packaged.
Well constructed and I anticipate should last a long time.
I use it single dosing and it grinds very consistently producing excellent shots.
Minor gripes are that it won't grind fine enough for some espresso roasts that I had no trouble going fine enough with in other grinders, therefore requiring me to increase the dose from 19 to 22g to get an acceptable extraction. I contacted ECS to enquire about burr alignment or whether it might be possible to shim it or something else to go finer, but never received a response.
The portafilter fork is useless so I have to grind into a separate tall plastic jug.
The hopper allowed too much debris and dust to escape the small hole around the little sliding stop, particularly with single dosing, so I had to seal this up with a little silicone, but it could have been designed much better.
Excellent grinder that looks great.
Excellent espresso grinder, but…
Premium quality looking grinder with great functionality and ease of grinding. However, bean hopper lid arrived slightly cracked and the grinder was not working properly because of a disconnected wire inside. I had to remove the bottom of the grinder to fix it. The problems disappeared and it worked fine ever since.
This is an excellent grinder. It is quiet and retains virtually no residual coffee. This means you can grind individual doses within 0.1 gram and no need to purge when changing coffee. It is difficult to set the grind the first time as the finest knob makes several full turns. Start by turning it all the way to the finest grind and work back a full turn.
quiet - efficient - sturdy
This grinder is my first "quality" machine. Many recommend investing in the grinder as well as the espresso machine. Looking at reviews of other grinders in this price range, this one stood out for the quality of the "build" and the quality of the grind.
So far it is performing well !
I highly recommend ordering from Espresso Coffee Shop. They made the ordering and shipping to the USA as easy as ordering from (forgive me for this ...) Amazon.
- no clumping
- quiet grinding
- little mess (no problems with static - nice waterfall of grounds ejecting out of the chute)
- sturdy feel, quality build
- clean lines, nice design
- dual voltage (110 / 240) with the US version provided with the right (3 prong) plug
- clean display, easily adjustable timer for dosing
- grind dial on top of machine takes some getting used to. it is obviously not like the machines larger dials with marks for different grinds. However it allows for finer control over grind size
- lid to hopper fits on very tightly, requiring a bit of a struggle to get off
The Eureka Specialita makes good espresso much easier to obtain.
A solid, well built,and good looking espresso grinder. We are very happy with it, and it appears it will last a long time.
