So I have owned my Mazzer mini E for a couple years now, perhaps the longest I have owned a grinder.  I have had upgrade-itus lately but just couldn't justify the cost vs performance boost with a bigger grinder like a Major or Compak Fresh.  Saw this video on www.Veniacoffee.com blog where they swap the Mini E burrs with Super Jolly burrs.  Figured it was a bit cheaper than a new grinder so ordered some Super Jolly burrs this weekend.  

They were on the counter when I got home tonight (two thumbs up to Venia for the fast shipping!!!) so went ahead and started the install. As I compared the Super Jolly burrs (Mazzer part 33M) and the stock Mini-E burrs (don't know the number), I couldn't really tell a difference visually.  I think the angle is a bit steeper but don't have any calipers to measure with any accuracy.  Because they look so similar in appearance, I was a bit worried that I wouldn't see a big performance increase.  

So I only have about 5 shots pulled on the new burrs but holy cr*p!  What a huge time improvement.  Pulling double shots in about 11 seconds, about half the time before the swap!!!  Grind is much, much fluffier so it was hard to get the whole 18 gram doses into the basket.  I don't know where I stashed my bottomless portafilter but will report back on what the shot looks like from below when I find it.  

So far, I am pissed at myself for not doing this sooner.  Well worth the $40 to upgrade.  If you have a standard mini with doser, I read somewhere either here at coffee geek or at HB about swapping the burr carriers to fit the super jolly burrs.   at this point I would say it is likely well worth the trouble.

going to try to post the video below, don't know if I can figure out how to do it...

It is an easier and very worthwhile upgrade.  I have not had a single stalling issue with using the more aggressive SJ burrs on the Mini.  

I've done the burr carrier swap on a Mini.  Worked very well for awhile then extractions became inconsistent for some unknown reason.  Still have the burr carriers so may well try it again someday.

You can use this to contain the grinds.  http://www.orphanespresso.com/OE-IPANEMA-Tall-Aluminum-Portafilter-Dosing-Cylinder_p_2540.html  There are many cheaper options but this is a perfect fit with my bottomless portafilter and looks cool.  If you ever remove the anti-static grid, some kind of funnel is basically mandatory.
