I returned it because essentially, as a first-time Mazzer buyer, I had not yet been educated on some fundamental issues. So, for other newbies, here's the mistake I made that you shouldn't make. I thought that the "doser" would mean that as a home user I could program the dose and have the machine grind just that...easy peasy. Boy was I wrong. The "doser" is actually a container of little wedge-shaped openings. For it to dose coffee as a barista would do it, in convenient shots, you have to grind a LOT of coffee and fill up most of the wedge-shaped openings.
For home use, it was a major pain in the neck. Your options include grinding a ton of coffee so the doser is full, but unless you have 20 of your closest friends over for espresso, that's nuts as your coffee will just get stale in there, defeating the purpose of grinding it yourself! The other option is to grind a small amount of coffee (maybe even measure out what you need as some suggest) and then keep pulling the lever like a gambling addict at a slot machine until you fill up your portafilter. And then when you're done making your coffee, time to open up the doser and use the little brush to clean out all the stray coffee grinds.
There are people who don't mind doing that, and more power to them. But for me, it was a big hassle, and really just not for me. So I found the perfect solution in The Mazzer Mini Electronic Grinder Type B. It was a good bit more expensive (not putting price here as it will change anyway, but you can Google it).Read more ›
I am still on my original set of burrs, having between 1 and 6 drinks a day for 8 years, and I'm still getting a consistently perfect grind. One note on usage, though, is that you have to be prepared to tweak the grind setting occassionally. As the beans age (I roast at home) or the weather/humidity changes it affects how fine or course the grind must be to "time right" in your machine.
If you're not roasting yet, you should seriously consider starting. Roasting is the single biggest thing I can think of to improve your home coffee/espresso-- more than prosumer machines or high-end grinders. Of course, these other things help too. For more information on roasting, check out Sweet Marias (not linking the site because I don't think that would fly). The Behmor 1600 roaster has been solid for me as well.
Time for a latte.
The MM is really a low end commercial grinder. That is it is meant to be a back-up grinder or used for decaf in a commercial establishment where it does not have to perform primary grinding duties but still stand up to the rigors of a commercial environment.
The Mazzer is built like a tank and if you get one I hope you have a sturdy counter to put it on because it is not a lite-weight.
This particular model has a "doser" and is really meant for dispensing ground coffee in to portafilters - filters for espresso machines. The doser is not designed to be removed. Mazzer makes a Mini model without the doser if your needs require such.
If you are a serious espresso drinker this is the grinder you want. What makes this grinder so useful is that it is "stepless." There are no hard and fast grind settings. You dial in the exact grind level that you want. This is an absolute necessity if you are using a lever type espresso machine such as a La Pavoni.
The MM uses a timer with an auto-shutoff feature. The sound of the grinder in action is hard to describe. You know the assuring sound of something that does a job really well? Well that is what the MM sounds like, a machine that does its job very well. When running (but not grinding) the motor emits a strong steady hum. When grinding there is no hint of bogging down the motor just grinds right through the beans even at the finest setting.
It would have been nice if the hopper was glass but I will not hold that against the machine.
As the above reviewer commented the machine comes preset for espresso.Read more ›

The absolute best grinder for at-home barristas. Perfect and consistent grind which is essential for pulling shots from the Pavoni on our countertop....Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
I have been using a Mazzer Mini in the doserless model for about 8 years. Prior to this grinder I used several others that cost about $100 to $150. Read morePublished on July 11, 2013 by 5T1CK5
