Right off the bat, we can tell you that if real estate is important to you, then the Mignon might be a better option. It’s smaller footprint and boxy design makes it a perfect companion next to a sleek espresso machine or, let be honest, the microwave. That slim size does mean that some features, like the 8-ounce bean hopper, are smaller. Don’t let that deter you! It's packed with all the bells and whistles you need for a good shot.

The Fausto, on the other hand, is a big kahuna. It's outfitted with 65mm burrs, a 22-ounce bean hopper and a large chute topped with a programmable digital display. The Fausto spits out a great grind faster thanks to the larger burrs. Its giant bean hopper also means you can grind up more beans. This can be great for multiple cups, but otherwise, it might be excessive for a cup or two.

While we’re talking about the nitty-gritty details, the Fausto’s timer can get down to the second with the easily programmable digital display. It can also save two settings for a single or double shot. That means you can start your morning double shot and end with a pre-lunch single shot. After lunch? Rinse mug. Repeat. 

The Mignon also has a timer to control dosing, but it’s on the side of the machine, meaning you’ll have to reach around or angle the controls toward you. That sort of beats the purpose of its small footprint when you're moving it around. 

By no means, though, does the Mignon make a disappointing shot! Its small size and the manual timer doesn’t affect the power of those 50mm stainless steel flat burrs. It produces a practically identical grind like the Fausto but without taking up the whole counter.

Both grinder machines complete the whole coffee package for home brewing! Pair one with a machine like the Rocket R60v (we’ve got it reviewed, too) and you’ve got a match made in caffeinated-heaven.
