Topic: Question about Mazzer Mini Burr Replacement (4 msgs / 171 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Friends and family,
After replacing the burrs on a Mazzer Mini, is it typical that one
would have to find new "marks" for desired levels of grinding, even
for drip and French Press?
To my naked eye, the new burrs sure do appear to be identical to the
old burrs in overall height, but I have now way of measuring the depth
of the machined recess on the back of the burrs.
I guess this question would apply to other grinders with replaceable burrs too.
Thank you in advance.
Respectfully,
Eddie

When the day to replace my MM's burrs eventually arrives, I'd imagine  
it'd be necessary to dial it in all over again since the sharpness  
would be different.  When I first got my MM, I bought a 2.5 lb. bag  
of Costco Seattle Mt. Blend still warm from the roaster, and it took  
about half a pound to get the proper grind for fresh espresso beans  
dialed in.  It was a fun task, as I got to drink my results.

Eddie:
my educated guess says they are not machined to precision; there is a value they meet and that is that.
you would need to re-set your levels of grinding for any prosumer/consumer grinder. I do not think the overall height is the issue rather the precision of the groves.
did you inquire with mazzer? I would also say that each mini is a bit different. my mini may grind differently from yours, close but no cigar.
shall we have a test of the mini burrs?
we must use the same roasted coffee, our eyes must be 20/20 to see those little lines and you may have NO beer or Scotch before the test.

You will need to dial in again.  My new burrs were off by one whole number
on the Major.
