Overview

Eureka lives up to their namesake with another inspired grinder—the Atom! Instead of focusing on speed, (though it's quite fast) consistency, (though it has fantastic espresso distribution) or ease of use (though it is, in fact, easy) Eureka has shifted focus into making a truly quiet grinder. This is the grinder for a house of light sleepers, apartment complexes or romantic cafés. Short of a hand grinder or a hiding place in the garage, you'll be hard-pressed to find a quieter espresso grinder on the market. This marked dedication to sound insulation pairs with fine stepless grind controls, time-based dosing and an easy-cleaning design shared with other Eureka-designed grinders.

Features and Functionality

  • 60mm Flat Burrs - Large burrs make short work of pulverizing beans into a uniform distribution.
  • Sound Insulation - A metal case and a design dedicated to quiet motor and burr sounds make the Atom a great choice for quiet spaces.
  • Timer Based Dosing - Set grind times for both single or double shots.
  • Removable Bean Hopper - Boxy like the rest of the grinder, the Atom's hopper is easily removable for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Manual Pulse Grind - Grind on demand with a dedicated pulse brew button or the portafilter button.
  • Portafilter or Basket - The Atom comes with a dedicated grounds bin for drip or pour over preparations.
  • Stepless Adjustment - With nearly infinite burr settings, the Atom offers fine control over grind size.
  • Digital Screen - An easy-to-read digital screen makes set up and control even easier.
  • Removable Top Burr - The top burr of the Atom is easily removable for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Bottom Burr Adjust - Adjustments happen at the lower burr, so your grind setting will be saved after cleaning.
Pros
  • Eerie - After a while, you get used to the sound of torquey motors and spinning burrs. It is honestly disconcerting that the loudest thing about this grinder is the sound of beans moving in the hopper.
  • Grounds Container - The included grinds container fits perfectly and makes the Atom more suited to drip or pour over methods.
  • Quick Shots - We clocked the grind time for an 18-gram double shot in at 4.5 seconds.
  • Handsome - The squared off shape of the grinder case and hopper look great next to most machines.
Cons
  • Portafilter Rest - While the portafilter arm did a fine job with our tester Rocket's portafilter, it's short shape doesn't work as well for odd-sized portafilters.
  • Stepless - While the extra accuracy is a welcome inclusion (especially for espresso) stepless setups are particularly ill-suited for switching between brew methods. If you're looking for a grinder for multiple uses, a stepped option will likely be a better fit.
SCG Staff Says...

While handily capable of grinding for drip and pour over methods, the Atom gets quite messy at coarser settings.

How Does it Compare?

Serious power and a quiet design makes this grinder one of our top choices for home espresso (as long as you have the room). It would also be a great pick for a small cafe as a secondary grinder.

Just received the ATOM from you and have a question. Portafilter button is strictly a start button in single or double shot modes. I would like to have it pause the grind if I remove the portafilter to tap down the mound and resume the grind time by pushing the Portafilter button with the portafilter again. Can this be done? The manual has no mention of changing the function of this button. Right now, I push annother button to pause and also to resume. Love the low noise and perfect grind! Getting much smoother extraction than Baratza Sette (noisy monster).

Best Answer: Weird! I just tested this and our unit does the same thing. I even tried going into the diagnostics listed in the manual but there are no settings there, only a 'shot count'. I'll pass this on to our tech team to see if they can give any insight.

Thanks!

What is the maximum time you are allowed to set for the single/double shot modes? I would like to use one of the modes as a timer for drip coffee and thus would want to set it for longer than a real life shot would take to grind.
Neil J on Sep 28, 2017
Best Answer: 25 seconds for single shots, 35 seconds for doubleshots. How big is your drip coffee maker?

Looking to replace my Rancilio Rocky, because it is so slow! I make drip coffee but like to push the limits on fineness of the grind, and I'm generally making standard strong 8-cup batches for the household in my Technivorm. I think I have narrowed my search to this machine vs the Rocket Fausto. Which do you suppose would be the better grinder for my application? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Neil
Neil J on Sep 27, 2017
Best Answer: I use my Atom to grind for my espresso machine, but I also have a technivorm as well. I've got a cheaper burr grinder I use for the technivorm since the grind perfection doesn't matter as much with that in my opinion, but the atom would work fine for this. When i bought my Atom I was picking between it and the fausto as well, and ended up picking the Atom since it can do better with larger grounds like what you'd need for a percolator.

bought an Atom less than a year ago. have faithfully cleaned it. today, I encountered two problems. first, the grinder would not turn at all. the motor would hum, but the grinding mechanism did not move. I think I fixed that problem; at least the grinder itself once again spins. second, no coffee comes out of the shoot. the grinder seems to be accepting coffee, but it seems to be staying somewhere within the machine.

any suggestions for how to remedy problem?

thanks.

Best Answer: Hi James,
Thanks for your question. It should be that the grinder is clogged. Sometime changing the grind size too quickly can cause this. On the product video, it shows a quick teardown to where the dispensing chute is. That is be your best bet in getting the grinder back up and running. Is clearing the clog does not work, feel free to reach out to us at our 866.372.4734 customer service number to set up a repair ticket.

Hope that helps!

Can I run the Eureka Atom without a hopper for single shot dosing? Is this something aftermarket to enable that?
Dean F on Feb 4, 2017
Best Answer: Honestly, I would not recommend the Atom for single dosing. We noticed a tendency for the grinder to 'popcorn' beans when the hopper is near-empty.

I bought the Atom when I ordered my Linea Mini. I previously was using the Rancilio doserless for the last 4 years which was excellent once it was dialed in. I only changed the grind when I changed to a different bean. It is a great grinder but the Atom which cost 3 times as much is a better buy especially with it stepless design. Finding the right grind as always takes time and patience but it really is terrific. The only issue is that the portafilter from La Marzocco does not work with the portafilter rest so you will have to hold it for approximately 8 seconds to get 17 gm of grind. Small price to pay for such a fabulous machine. The clear plastic is very thin and fragile so be careful with the bean hopper and lid. Otherwise those who buy this will be rewarded.
