Thanks.

Those looking for a high end grinder, might consider restoring a used Mazzer, and combining with a digital timer. Readily available on eBay.

My Mini Mazzer black powder coat is like new. I would like both the Mazzer and Auber to be painted like a custom Harley; short on cash and energy, simply rattle-can in black the Auber to match seems like a good solution too. I'll let you all know.

Received the Auberge J72BX. Plugged my Mini Mazzer "Man" into the J72BX which in turn was plugged into the same wall plug as my La Spaziale Dream which is 20amp. Easy setup.

The silver sparkle case is nicer looking than I expected. The buttons are chrome with black lettering adjacent on the case indicating what each commonly used button is intended to do. The digital face is also very impressive, and includes buttons to program the time of run of each of the top-of-case buttons.

A no issue setup, that works as advertised, excellent for the purpose, and looks good. Well worth the price of $99 plus transportation cost.

Closer look at the J72BX. The led are bright. See their reflection on the black granite counter top.

I did see this doser mod from espresso parts and gave it some serious consideration before going to the funnel.

I will cut a shape out of a plastic gallon milk jug, and report how it works. I like the look of the chrome funnel, but for what it is, unless someone willing to purchase my doser to cover the cost, it is likely not to happen with my coffee setup.

The Mini Masser AFAIK is powder coated. Am I correct in stating that an excellent condition powder coated metal item does not need to have the powder coating stripped? Seems to me it would be an excellent base for a spray. Don't know about additional powder coated layers.

All together, my recently revised espresso setup is very nice. Very happy with it. One button of my J72BX is calibrated to grind exactly 20g for use in the bottomless portafilter that accompanied the Dream from Chris Coffee.

That Auber time is nice, Ive always had it in the back of my head.  A couple grinders ago, I had the Macap MXKR(63mm Conical, the Mazzer Kony equivalent), and I used a Gralab timer with it.  If you like using beans in the hopper, a timer is a must IMO.  


If you want to repaint your mazzer mini, its not a hard process.  If the finish on yours is still factory immaculate, then a quick soap and water clean, a light sand(LIGHT), and a new coat of primer is all the base you need for a new color, you dont need to strip it.  Stripping it is for when your buying a used coffeeshop workhorse that has seen some battle.  My FIRST grinder was a beat to hell Mazzer Major, Ive been down this path before.  Stripping a mazzer is a process, its not easy.  the majority of paint strippers available wont do much at all.  I had to use some very aggressive stripper to even get some paint off, and in the end, it still wasn't enough.  However, if you have the time and the tools, you can sand that puppy to a high mirror polish, so, it IS doable.

Getting it powdercoated is a different story, you need to break it down to just the shell, which, is easier said than done.  You need to remove the entire motor assembly, which is not easy.  You can do some research on it if you want, but it requires more skill than just using a wrench and screwdriver.  I consider myself pretty adept, and I wasn't interested in removing the motor from a mazzer grinder.
