Mazzer Mini Type A Doserless Espresso Grinder

What does Type A mean?

  • Mazzer makes two types of Mazzer Mini Electronic grinders. Type A has push button controls for dosing that are on top of the dosing chamber. Type B, which we do not currently offer, has a button located between the dosing adjustments below the doser that the barista pushes with the portafilter to dose the coffee.
  • With this Type A model, there are three push-buttons on the top for dosing: Single Dose, Double Dose, and the on-demand grind button.
  • The On-Demand grind button will grind coffee as long as you are holding the button down. The Single and Double Dose buttons are pressed and then grind the programmed dosage that has been set.
  • Dose of Single and Double shots can be set and adjusted via the digital display and controls.

In an age where companies are frequently cutting corners on build quality to save cost, a company like Mazzer is a rarity. Whenever espresso grinders are being discussed, and the focus turns to quality, reliability, and longevity, Mazzer is consistently a standard to which others are held. New companies and designs hit the market, but the question needing to be asked is, "Sure, it works well now, but is it going to last as long as a Mazzer?" Mazzer espresso grinders come in a variety of model variations (doser and electronic) and sizes ranging from the low-volume Mazzer Mini to the super-high volume Mazzer Robur.

Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless Espresso Grinder - Type A is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overkill? I think not. You may think your current grinder is good enough, but it isn't, and you will realize the moment you get beautiful powder-soft grinds flowing out of this beast. The Mazzer is amazingly well machined, with precise tolerances that give you a perfect grind right out of the box on default settings. Based on your bean type/age/humidity you can dial in the perfect shot. No more near-gnashing of gears to get an acceptable density. Coming off a top-of-the-line well-known household grinder, I can honestly say that this device is not overkill. You will be doing the world a favor by saving the lives of innocent coffee beans who otherwise would have not gotten the perfect grind and ended up in the disposal (or worst yet, the spittoon).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellant product great price This is a superb grinder. I have been using a Rancillio Rocky for 10 years and have always held off the upgrade trigger believing the difference would not be that noticeable. I was wrong. The grind on the MM is so fluffy; a quality the Rocky could never match even on setting 3 or 4. This is truly a quality piece of hardware. Prima is also convenient as they are not east or west coast, but only 2 states away. In the future I will check with Prima prior to other coffee equipment buys as they were very competitive on pricing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from mazzer mini type A Recently purchased a mazzer mini type A grinder from Prima coffee. Very pleased with prompt delivery time. The grinder is amazingly well built, typical Italian equipment. Have only been using it for a brief time but I can already see the amazing level of adjustment this thing has. People are correct in saying that your coffee grinder is the most important piece of equipment to spend that little bit extra on when purchasing a grinder if you want a top quality cup of espresso. Very pleased with purchase and would highly recommend this grinder to potential buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What did you expect - your buying 5 stars After a solid month of research I took the plunge. Spending over $800 on anything is a little anxiety inducing but in the end what you bought was peace of mind. I have this paired with a Miss Silvia and the two are perfect together. My last grinder was a Baratza and looked like a toy next to this. I was also throwing out about as much coffee grinds as I was drinking. Just couldn't dial it in as well. This mazzer is now dedicated for espresso only. The Baratza, general coffee duty. I can't comment on the coarser settings because of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grinder straight out of the box. I can say enough great things about this grinder. I was using a Capresso grinder with my Rocket Celini for years. My first shot with the Mazzer Mini showed me what I was missing out on. The taste is richer/more complex. There's a smoothness I had not experience before. It looks great next to my Celini. My only small complaint is that when the handle with baket in place is put in place resting on the holder, the ground can pill up off center. I could be doing something incorrect though and will review the manual again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential tool for great espresso The Mini Doserless is an easy to use, yet powerful grinder that will take your espresso quality to the next, if not highest, level. Once I found the right grind level after a few attempts, it's a simple pop of the toggle switch and you're ready to go. I use the manual button, but you have the option of using a single or double dose which can be adjusted depending on your preference. Effortless, fluffy grinds at your fingertips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A joy to use I've had the Mazer Mini Electronic Doserless A for a week now; it's my first home grinder. It's an amazing piece of equipment and, together with my Rancilio Silva, I'm already getting higher-quality espresso than all but a few coffee shops in town. Everyone's right that the build quality is extremely impressive, and the grinder is just a pleasure to use. Very happy with the purchase thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stepping Up Started out with a Rancilio Rocky Grinder. When I upgraded my espresso machine to a Rocket I thought it time to upgrade the grinder. I'm so glad I did. What a joy this machine is. So much faster than the Rocky. The coffee comes out smooth and fast and quietly. It takes a little trial and error to get the right grind and dose, but once it's done it's done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grinder Very happy with this grinder. It's sturdy, grinds very evenly and is easy to operate. The controls are easy to use. I have not had to clean it yet, but have been told that I can put a handful of rice into the grinder and run it through to clean the burrs and absorb the oils. The short/small hopper is a perfect fit for under cabinet use.

Hi, does the Mazzer Mini Electronic Doserless grinder remember its time settings when you turn off the power? Or do you need to set this every time you use it? Thanks /J

Asked by: Johan
The grinder will recall the last programmed time, even after the power has been switched off.

Will the portafilter holder be able to keep a bottomless portafilter in place during grinding or will it vibrate off? I'm thinking of using this in a commercial setting as a decaf grinder, and hands-free is really important.

Asked by: JIm1992
No - you must hold the porta-filter handle while dosing with Mazzer grinders.

What is the difference between this model and the Type B model from the same company?

Asked by: warrena
Type A has a keypad, Type B does not, and is actually activated with your portafilter via a small button. We do not carry the Type B.
