the product SEEMS really nice, quite heavy suggesting a good construction, good materials, very satisfying overall. Unfortunately the unit i received was not working at all, completely dead from the beginning. I plugged it in and switched it on but nothing happened. Since the unit was new and still packed in the manufacturer box, i assume i wass reallly unluky but also one of these apply:
1) Eureka has a really poor quality control or no quality controll at all,
2) Eureka has a poor packaging design (the box was pristine, so i don't think that somthing had happened),
3) Eureka has a really weak design (in case the issue originated after the delivery from their workshop during transportation)
after all, this is a grinder, i.e. a motor with burrs at the end and some adjustement gears, all of them made of metal. There are electronic componenrts which are nokn to be more susceptible to shocks sure, but nowadays most e-shops deliver sophisticated electronics (laptops, cell phones, audio devices, LCD devices) or even sophisticated optics products with intercontinental delivery and most of them are suitable or packaged for express delivery...
Service from Espresso coffee shop is nice.
I am Japanese.
I received the product in 5 days from order to receipt. I was surprised at the speed of shipping. And the packaging was also very polite. I think I will ask for various products in the future, but the most worrisome thing is the speed of shipping. I'm looking forward to the next time. Thank you very much.
The Zero has a larger grind dial which makes "dialing" in much easier. The tiny dial on the specialita is really hard to microadjust. The Zero really is a specialita without electronics. No big deal if the objective is to single dose. I have come to like the single dosing better than the timed grind as it is more consistant. The Specialita could be converted with a bowout hopper, but that would add cost to the grinder and using the Zero approach, the timed grinding feature would be of no use. Cleaning the Zero should be less frequent, and easier as there are no timer connection wires to be contended with.
This is a wonderful machine. I'm completely blown away by the quality of every single part of this machine. The nobs have a great tactile feel and operate very smoothly. It seems to be extremely overbuilt, like its made to last a lifetime. I was not expecting how robust this machine is. Very heavy, thick panels and components. Now I understand why Rocket is so well regarded. None of the videos I watched could convey the quality of this machine. It's completely ready to go after 30 minutes. The wait is not an issue at all with a smart plug on a timer. Very easy to set up. Thank you to EspressoCoffeeShop for making this machine affordable. I also bought my Atom 75 grinder from them and I am 100% satisfied with the buying experience. I ordered the machine on the weekend from the middle of USA. They shipped it out Monday morning before I woke up, and I had it Wednesday afternoon. The machine was very well packaged. it arrived in beautiful perfect brand new condition.
I love the Eureka Mignon manual. I want to recommend it to anyone considering an espresso grinder. (single dose)
I have been using Baratza Vario for four years. And never go back to them.
My vario motorhead broken, belt broken, had to spend $100 to buy parts only for fixing myself.
So I purchased Eureka Mignon Manual for around $200. (I live in CA, US. shipping was incredibly fast - it took 2-3days only)
-first impress, much much quieter than Vario for me.
-grinding quality is good as Vario (espresso)
-finer/coarser dial is also much better than Vario, which is hard to adjust and makes an error somehow.
-coffee powder came so smoothly to the portafilter directly, so I didn't lose any. On the other hand, Baratza Vario scatters a lot. I don't use the direct-portafilter base even though I purchased it with an extra $$.
-The bean hopper stopper is a valuable function that Vario doesn't have (it might be optional with an extra $$)
