The Eureka Mignon Specialità is an all purpose grinder with 55 mm flat hardened steel burrs that give it the highest output in Eureka’s Mignon range. The touch screen display is a stand out feature for a grinder so small, making adjustment as easy as it should be. With its larger burrs, the Mignon Specialità can produce up to 1.8g of coffee per second for espresso, meaning it can produce a barista quality 18g double shot in as little as 10 seconds.
Features and Performance
First of all—the touch screen. We're thrilled with how intuitive it is. It's vibrant, with a large font size and clean controls. Grind time is adjustable in tenths of a second using the "+" and "-" buttons, and you can freely switch between single and double shots. Also, you can switch to a manual mode for continuous grinding, or lock in your timed settings to keep other people from fiddling.
For performance, it's equipped with 55 mm flat hardened steel burrs and a strong 1350 RPM motor with an output of 1.4 - 1.8g/s for espresso and 1.9 - 2.5g/s for brew. Eureka's ACE system helps prevent clumping by eliminating static in ground coffee, which in turn ensures dose consistency.
It's quiet, measuring in at about 73 dBA, so you won't ever need to stop a conversation to make your drinks. It brings Eureka's patented micrometric adjustment, so you expect smooth, stepless adjustments when dialing in the grind. Plus, the portafilter holder fork is adjustable to work with any portafilter on the market.
Why You Should Get It
The Mignon Specialta is a superb espresso grinder, with it's quiet grinding and touchscreen controls. The micrometric grind adjustment knob is one of the easiest ways to make very fine changes to grind size that we've experienced, as well. Plus, with a height of under 14 inches, this coffee and espresso grinder will fit just about anywhere. If you're looking for a compact, espresso-focused grinder, this is the one for you.
Touch Screen Display
The Mignon Specialità's interface is perhaps one of the easiest we've worked with. Grind time is measured in seconds, and a tap of the "+" or "-" buttons will adjust by a tenth of a second. For large adjustments, you can press and hold to race through the seconds. Pressing the "+" and "-" buttons at the same time will lock in your timed setting, and pressing in the single and double shot buttons at the same time will switch to manual mode.
Eureka's patented stepless micrometric adjustment is precise and easy to use. When preparing espresso, that level of control is vital when dialing in the grind. You need to find that sweet spot quick and easily to truly get the best results in the cup. The Eureka Mignon Specialità accomplishes just that.
