$650 Eureka Mignon Specialita coffee Grinder 110v.

Deal Link:
Price:
320 EUR
Retailer:
espressocoffeeshop
User code 6781 for 5% off.
Comparing price $849 in Canada before tax, this is a good deal.

The deal is not for all, only for coffee/espresso lovers.
Pro: Quite! Easy adjustment (continuous for espresso)
Cons :Retention (if you want better retention, go for Niche Zero, if you can get one)

Price I paid is Eur: 339 + 25 (110v) -5% coupon (6781) => 571 CAD
custom importing 78 CAD
total $649 (I used a no FX fee credit card, or it could be 2.5% in addition)

Be sure to pick up the 110v version addon, which is for Canada. There is another 226 same addon for US.
Default version is 220v as it is made in Italy.

There are multiple color to choose from, not all the same price.
Again be sure to pick one with EUR 25 110v addon.


If it is in stock, it takes 2 days to ship it out, and 3 days for delivery in Canada.
If not in stock, add another 2 weeks.

Cheers,

I don't think it's a deal. I bought it last year for the same price there and I like it.
Not sure what happens to the warranty coverage when you buy from Italy....

What are the odds customs tacks on another 13% HST and the hassle of forms to get it back?

I see $622.27 CDN conversion, and using no FX fee CC.

Even though people have ordered from here, interesting street view address on Google, no idea what I'm looking at lol

I am sort of with you.
This is FYI kinds of a deal, not a sale from the website, but huge sale comparing to buy inside Canada.
IMHO, for people don't know this, it is a deal, for people do know, it is not.
To be honest, it took me a few months to find this, that is the reason I post it here, to save people's time.
I know, I am slow... :facepalm:

We ordered from them last year as well, the same grinder. Cost $660 landed after customs if I remember correctly.

Has been doing great for us, much quieter than Baratza, and custom 3D-printed a single dose hopper with a plunger to help reduce retention. Very good clump-free grind, if only I was more consistent in tamping.

So the advantage over Baratza is quieter and less clumps? Trying to understand what the marginal difference or value proposition is.

I don't have Baratza sette, have heard that it is very loud.
I read reviews online that both are with minimum clumps.
Due to the design, Baratza sette should have less retention, unless you want to do some mod for the Specialita.
As for dial-in, heard Specialita is either the on par or slightly better than 270, and way better than 30.

In addition to what OP replied, better build quality (made in Italy, mostly metal vs made in Taiwan, mostly plastic with more frequent issues). The specialita uses flat burrs (compared to the Sette's conical burrs) which inherently has more retention, plus a small amount also stays in the chute. The single dose mod fixes this with a bellows to push the rest out. The specialita is also capable of grinding for more than espresso, although it's not recommended if switching frequently as you'll have to dial in for espresso again. It also takes up a little less counter space.

Bought it a few days ago too and the whole process was smooth; the import fees by UPS were $100 for QC.

Not sure about the warranty either, but it's Eureka I'm not too worried (vs Baratza..)

I think I'd rather wait for a sale from IDrinkCoffee, in case things go south it's very easy to drive over to Milton and have them take a look at it, fix it, replace it.

The price is good, just I'm not willing to risk it.

I have one. It’s great and very quiet. It does seem to jam more than I expected, but if you just back off on the dial a little it’ll start again.

I considered between the Specialita vs Sette 270 when I wanted to upgrade from my Baratza Preciso. I ended up getting the Specialita. My impression is that the grind setting is more repeatable and consistent. It also looks quite good in my opinion. However, in terms of taste in the cup, honestly I can't tell much difference between the Specialita vs the Preciso. I have not yet done a side by side comparison. Perhaps I could tell when I have two cups of expresso in front of me, but if you are to make any milk based drinks, then the difference I would say is really undetectable.

The downside of the Specialita is that I don't like the hopper. It has a sliding door but it opens the hopper to the exterior, so whenever it grinds, coffee grinds jump out and create a mess around the grinder over time. If you remove the door completely and seal the gap with a tape, then there is a ton of popcorning. I single dose, so when I grind, I would put the beans in the hopper with the door shut, run the grinder, open the door, and half way along the grind I would close the door again to reduce the popcorn effect. But this still doesn't eliminate the mess.

At the end of the day, I think it's just a personal choice between the looks, availability, and warranty protection.

Check out the single dosing modifications available online. It makes for less popcorning, and with a bellows or plunger system you can force out the grounds that are usually retained.

Highly recommend Eureka grinders..

I was going to get a baratza for the longest time and by chance stumbled on Eureka and have not looked back. I only like drip coffee so I have the Eureka Crono and it's fantastic. Built sturdy and heavy. Nice fluffy grounds.

Quite new to espresso making but I ended up with a Eureka Facile which is said to not be able to grind for espresso, but uses the same burrs as their espresso grinders.
Went through the trouble of making it smart using an ESP and now it works like a specialita. Eureka grinders work amazing and look really cool on the countertop as well

If you're really patient this seller usually has a black Friday promo where the savings generally cover shipping depending on your purchase.
