Eureka Mignon Specialita Questions
Where is the Eureka Mignon Specialita made?
The Eureka Mignon Specialita is made in Italy.
How many coffee beans does the Eureka Mignon Specialita hopper hold?
Roughly 12 ounces of coffee can fit into the hopper of the Specialita.
Can the Specialita grinder be used for both espresso and drip coffee?
The Eureka Mignon Specialita is best used for dialing in the grind for a specific batch of coffee beans and brew type (we recommend espresso), and it's recommended to not make any adjustments until the beans are finished.
It would be diffifult to switch between brew types daily with this grinder as you will lose a lot of coffee trying to dial-in your brew.
What type of power does the Specialita use?
Can I remove the portafilter holder for and grind into the portafilter with dosing ring on top?
The portafilter holder height is adjustable and removable making it easy to grind directly into a portafilter with a dosing ring.
What distinguishes the Specialita, Silenzio, Notte, Atom, and Baratza Sette 270Wi from each other, and what factors should be considered when deciding which one is best suited for making espresso?
In short, the Eureka Mignon grinders (Specialita, Silenzio, Notte, and Atom) offer different features and varying degrees of quietness, with different burr sizes and grind adjustability options, at different price points. The Baratza Sette 270Wi is a different type of grinder that offers grind by weight with a built-in scale, and smaller 40mm cone burrs. Each grinder has its own unique features and trade-offs in terms of function and price, so choosing one over the other will depend on your specific needs and preferences for espresso making.
What size burrs does the Eureka Mignon Specialita have in comparison to the other Eureka models?
- Specialita - 55mm burrs
- Silenzio - 50mm burrs
- Notte - 50mm burrs
- Atom - 60mm burrs
- Baratza Sette 270Wi - 40mm cone burrs
What can be done to reduce the mess while using the grinder, as there has been an issue with coffee grounds scattering all over the counter despite trying different roasts and beans?
A dosing ring or a light spray of water on the beans before grinding can help reduce static and make for a less messy grind experience.
What is the estimated lifespan in terms of coffee pounds for the Eureka Specialita standard burrs before they need to be replaced?
It is uncommon for a home user to wear out the burrs on a grinder, as it takes many hundreds or even thousands of pounds of coffee to do so, unless the grinder is used for more than a decade or two.
What grind setting are most people using with the Rocket Apartmento machine? Are they also having trouble finding the right setting like I am, who is currently at 2 3/4 from the finest grind setting?
The grind setting varies greatly depending on the coffee, its age, and the humidity level, among other factors. Some people find that they use a setting between 1.75 and 2.5, but this can vary greatly depending on the coffee they are using. It's normal for small changes in the grind setting to occur as the coffee ages. One shot may turn out to be 1.3 ounces in 26 seconds, and the next shot may be 1.6 ounces in the same 26 seconds. Some people use a grind setting just under 2, but the exact setting will depend on their specific setup and preferences.
What are the pros and cons of choosing either a Baratza Sette 270Wi grinder or a Eureka Mignon Specialita Espresso Grinder?
As for choosing between the Baratza Sette 270Wi and the Eureka Mignon Specialita, both are fantastic grinders. The Specialita has a sturdier construction, is more quiet and has flat burrs, but it also has slightly more retention and a limited range of grinds for various brewing methods. On the other hand, the Sette 270Wi is incredibly fast, has conical burrs, and offers excellent value for money. However, it also has a lot of plastic parts, which makes it less durable, but it's backed by great customer service. Additionally, it's quite loud compared to the Specialita.
