The Mazzer Mini Flat Burr Espresso Grinder is widely appreciated as a commercial-grade, high quality grinder suited for small cafes, restaurants and home users who want a professional edge. Mazzer's latest version of the Mini Flat Burr Grinder comes with a stainless-steel grind tray and a power cord that comes our of the bottom rather than the side.
Features & Functionality of the Mazzer Mini Flat Burr Grinder
- Large Capacity: The sturdy clear plastic bean hopper with finger guard holds holds a whopping 1.3 pounds of beans and features an integrated trap door that allows for easy changing of beans without emptying.
- Consistent Grind: The stable stainless steel 58mm burr grinders are flat (rather than conical) and remove for easy cleaning. Designed to operate at a low RPM (rotations per minute) so that minimal heat builds up and is transfered to your beans.
- Stepless Adjustment: Twist and pull the adjustment pin to advance the beans from the hopper into the grinder. You can adjust as the grinder is working.
- Doser: The adjustable doser gives you control of measuring out between 5 and 8 grams per pull

Also, the hopper has a black plastic pull to send beans to the grinder. Is there any way to control how many beans are sent?
Thanks a lot Jan 12, 2014
Hope this helps.
i have the same problem, so don't feel bad.
first, i try and pull a half dose on the third pull in order to fill the portafilter.
(i have not tried to "adjust the dose." i do not know how to do that.)
second, i flatten the coffee in the portafilter with my finger over the dose container (i remove the black top lid) and therefore the excess grinds fall back into the doser.
(this is before i tamp the coffee.)
my question for you is, which i constantly get confused about--which way do you turn the grind setting to make the grind courser or finer?
the label with the arrow confuses me overtime i try and make an adjustment.
do you turn the ring clockwise to make it courser or finer?
thanks for your input and good luck!
happy to chat anytime.
I love the mazzer mini and use it every morning.
but i need some feedback from others to get better at it!

The more complex answer has to do with how you are testing for the right dose. When you do the adjustment, weigh a single dose, and make sure it is 7 g. You will then need to calibrate the grinder itself (follow instructions for this in manual: the grinder has to be ON when you adjust the level of the grind) to make sure that one dose delivers one ounce of espresso, or two doses delivers two ounces.
The black "pull" is really a sort of lid. If you're making a lot of espresso, just close it; That way, if the grind isn't right, you can adjust it without actually grinding more coffee until you're ready. That is, it allows you to control how many beans are ground at one time: if the area is full, it usually allows for two doses.
I hope this is helpful. Jan 16, 2014
As for the plastic pull, it is so you can close the hopper and take it off without beans spilling all over the counter. Jan 13, 2014
