Hello,

I was originally searching YouTube for reviews on a portafilter funnel, but ran across this interesting bolt-on Mazzer funnel modification. I've been scouring the internet for almost 2 hours searching for a place of purchase, but can't seem to find one! I've copied the link to the video below as well as attached a screenshot, and the modification can be seen in the clip starting at 00:19.

http://youtu.be/x-l0TD_gJFk?t=19s

If anyone can provide any insight, I would be VERY, VERY appreciative! Thank you all so much in advance,

  1. Stuller

I guess this acts like a shoot for the outlet of the doser and, together with the funnel used in the video, is supposed to reduce the mess.

I suppose if you really want one, there is a website address at the end of the clip so, give that a try.
This would be used in a commercial environment where the doser on the grinder is filled with coffee. As coffee quickly stales when ground, it would be a very wasteful way to work at home. Even in a commercial environment, it is using volume, not weight to dose into the PF, not a very precise way to dose if quality is your goal.

I'll go a head and give the link a try. Someone could possibly contact the cafe for an answer. Hopefully it's a commercially manufactured add-on, because this grinder is extremely messy! Until then, I'll give the Schectermatic Shnozzola a try ;-)

Thank you two again for your help!

A local roaster/equipment supplier (in Christchurch NZ) supplied a very similar SS snout with a Mazzer Mini I bought from them.  I believe they got a local sheet metal shop to make these up for them, and include one in the box with the Mazzer doser models they sell.  It could do with a bit of a tidy up - to round off the edges and give it a bit of a polish perhaps.
I think it works pretty well - seems to reduce grounds flicking everywhere - but on a hot dry static kind of day I doubt there's going to be any perfect solution.
If making one, be sure to allow clearance between the chute and dosing handle - it gets quite close.
The chute could be made a little longer, but you'd need to be careful not to hit it and scratch the surface of the filter basket.
