No, the Mignon is not a steak, it's a grinder (what business do you think we're in here?)! And it's really no wonder how this super-functional grinder got its name, either. Meaning 'dainty' in French, the Eureka Mignon grinder manages to pack all the features of Eureka's professional grinder into a petite footprint. Pair its teeny-tiny size with the MCI's stepless adjustment, plus a much quieter motor, and you're looking at your new favorite espresso grinder. Ooh la la!

Features and Functionality

  • Programmable Dosing - The Mignon can be programmed to grind a specific dose or configured to grind continuously.
  • Stepless Adjustment - The micrometrical adjustment knob allows for easy and precise grind settings.
  • Removable Bean Hopper - The bean hopper holds 8 ounces of beans and includes a gate that can be closed when removing to prevent bean spills!
  • Portafilter Holder - The Eureka Mignon includes a removable portafilter holder. Simply remove this holder when grinding into a container.
  • Heavy Duty Construction - The Mignon is built like a tank to withstand heavy use.
  • Quiet - At only 73 Decibels the Mignon is quieter than most other grinders.
  • Compact Grinder - The Eureka Mignon packs a powerful grinder into a small footprint.
  • Stepless Adjustment - The easy-to-use and oh-so-precise micrometrical adjustment knob makes dialing in the perfect grind setting easy.
  • Versatile -The Eureka Mignon is an excellent choice for coarse and finer grind settings.
  • Some Clumping - You may experience some clumping on finer grind settings.

I'm leaning toward a Rocket Appartamento and will get a new grinder as well. What are the pros and cons of Sette 270 vs the Eureka Mignon, or should I be considering another?

How does this compare to the Rancilio Rocky?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2016
Best Answer: I just received the Eureka last week. I had a rocky for 12 years and the Eureka is more to my liking. I hated cleaning and changing the burrs on the rocky. It's easy to dial in your grind and I like the smaller size. Well built unit. Glad I made the change.

For the new Eureka Grinders, can you use them with its timing feature to grind enough coffee for a pot of drip, say a 10 cup Technivorm? Its hard dot see how it would work in the video for something other than portafilters. Thank you.

What is the maximum programmable time on the Eureka Mignon? Is it long enough to grind 18-20 grams for a double shot?
Russell R on Jan 31, 2016
Best Answer: zero indicates a good starting setting for 17 grams.

Can you do Turkish grinds with this unit?
John F on Jun 14, 2016
Best Answer: I have not made Turkish coffee yet but given that we had to dial up the size of the grind significantly for espresso it will undoubtedly handle Turkish. It is a very cool unit--quiet, small, and fast--and I am very pleased with it.

how does the doser work when grinding for pour-over? does it come with a receptacle for the ground coffee to fall into? is there a cup made to replace holding a portafilter here?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2017
Best Answer: The Mignon does not include a receptacle for grounds, but the portafilter hook is removable. We actually use Mignons on our coffee wall at our Lynnwood, WA store and grind directly into our pour over cones to brew coffee samples.
Hope this helps!

Do you sell replacement burrs for the Eureka mignon? We are really liking ours but will eventually need to replace the burrs and would like to have them on hand. Thks.
A shopper on Jan 16, 2017
Best Answer: Stay tuned! We'll be adding replacement burrs soon.

After dialing in the grinder with the beans and getting the correct dose, how do you set the timer to deliver that?
Ahmed S on Mar 19, 2017
Best Answer: Ahmed,
Watch this video:
Setting the timer takes a few fine adjustments. Both buttons on the side of the machine need to be pushed
in completely for the timer to operate properly.
The Eureka Grinder is a top quality machine. The feature I like the most is the ability to close the slide on the top basket & switch out your coffee beans. The Mignon is also very quiet.

My Eureka shuts off while grinding occasionally. Your service team recommended that I remove the top and clean the burr grinder area. I did so but it still quits occasionally. Could it be the switch? When I press the portafilter against the switch, sometimes the grinder will not start unless I slide the portafilter up high onto the switch. Sometimes this allows the grinder to function. Is this sensitivity to the switch position normal?
Darryl F on Sep 27, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Darryl,

I recently purchased this grinder and I have run into this problem as well. After purchasing this grinder, I realized that you always have to be grinding while you turn adjustment dial. If you don't, coffee will get caught and the burrs will get clogged. For example, when I first dialed in my grinder, I ran into this many times and I would stop and clean. But thanks to some reading online, I realized that you always have to be grinding no matter if it is just a slight adjustment and since doing this have had no further problems. I hope this helps.

There are no instructions for cleaning the Eureka Mignon grinder. What do you recommend?
Todd S on Oct 8, 2017
Best Answer: Actually, this is one of my favorite features of Eureka grinders.

The burr adjust is from the bottom (under the motor) so you can easily disassemble for cleaning without losing your grind setting. There are three screws on top of the grinder that, once removed, pull the top burr off. You can then sweep out your burrs and reinstall!

If you're not looking to disassemble the grinder, Grindz work well for cleaning out the burrs.

How do you clean the Mignon? You only mention using Grintz tablets. Usually you remove the upper chamber and blow it out.
Todd S on Aug 28, 2017
Best Answer: Actually, that's one of my favorite features of Eureka grinders! The micrometric adjustment happens below the motor, so you can remove the top burr for cleaning without entirely losing your grind setting. On the Mignon its 3 screws to remove the top burr.

will this grind as good as the atom?
warren c on May 4, 2017
Best Answer: The Atom is definitely a step up in terms of grind quality from the Mignon, with both bigger burrs and a more powerful motor. Hope this helps!

Which Eureka grinder is quieter...the Mignon or the Atom? Thank you
Rick H on Jan 4, 2017
Best Answer: Hands down the Atom! Anecdotally, the Mignon tends to clump a little more as well.

Hope this helps!

How easy or how mach of a hassle is it re-dial the grind from fine (espresso) to coarse (drip), i.e., can it be done regularly without too much effort? Or is the grinder better suited for leaving it set at one generally setting (espresso)?
John A on Oct 3, 2016
Best Answer: I definitely would not recommend a stepless grinder for multiple brew methods. Adjusting coarser is easy, but having to dial in your beans from scratch every time you want espresso would be a lot of work (and use a lot of beans!) If you want a grinder for multiple brew methods, something with stepped settings would be your best bet:

Hope this helps!

How much turn is for espresso?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2016
Best Answer: Every coffee bean will be a little different, so it will take a little while to dial in the Mignon to your specific roast and varietal. Check out this handy guide on dialing in your grinder!

Whenever I set up a grinder, I start finer than I need and adjust coarser until I find the sweet spot.

Hope this helps!

Oh, the Flavors!Review by Scottiedog
This is a very nice grinder and I can't get over the flavors of the coffee beans it unlocks! Instruction manual is uninformative, but look on youTube for ways to dial it in and clean it. Very easy to clean, easy to dial in the correct shot. I use it as a single dose and brush out the chute each day to keep stale coffee out of my next cup. I love that it is stepless - you can fine tune much more easily. It does produce clumps in the grind, but they easily tap out, I use a bamboo skewer to break up any large clumps that remain. I used a low plastic tray to custom a grind catcher, which keeps stray grinds off my counter top. It's a heavy, substantial machine with few plastic parts, a good value! Be prepared to buy lots and lots more coffee.... (Posted on 6/29/2017)
