Negative Product Points

Price. If I hadn't gotten such a sweet deal on a used one, I supposed I would not have bought one full price, at least not at this time.

Detailed Commentary

I was able to get this Mazzer Mini E Type A slightly used at a steal (currently retailing for about $900). I have been able to get such good results compared to my previous grinder, which is basically a non-espresso grinder (Cuisinart burr grinder)! Getting great crema and able to really fine tune my shots.

The fine grinds do not stick to the chute much but sometimes clump a little when in the portafilter. Like most doserless grinders, there can be spray of grounds away from the portafilter. I have been using a cut plastic yogurt cup that just fits inside the lip of my portafilter and this directs ALL the ground coffee into the portafilter without a mess (I saw this trick in a YouTube video). Now I grind with little mess!

The included hopper is tall. I have a short one on order so it will fit under my kitchen cabinet.

Buying Experience

Bought used from a friend.
