Topic: Mazzerite (13 msgs / 288 lines)
1) From: Adam Jahiel
I got tired of the morning hand-to-hand combat with my Solis grinder. I did
a quick addition of the money I had spent on my past three grinders, and how
dissapointed I had ended up in all three cases and bought a Mazzer Mini. I'm
one of those "I love greasy beans" kind of guys, so I chose the Mazzer, over
the Rocky, due to many reviews on the subject. I did feel mildly
uncomfortable unpacking it in front of my wife, but I managed to come up
with something lame as an excuse. Something about how she spends that much
on a case or two of wine, and how I end up with a piece of mechanical art
and how she ends up with a bunch of empty bottles. Each to his own vice. And
after a quick trial, it was love. Pure love. For those  familiar with
cameras that use this stuff called "film" out there, the Mazzer is the
coffee equivalent of the Leica, Hasselblad or Sinar.
Having just remodled MY kitchen, I did notice that the hopper is just big
enough to not fit under  the cabinets. Being one of those folks who cant
leve well enough alone, I am wondering if there is not a way of (1) finding
a sort of funnel-like or cylindrical container that would fit in the
hopper-hole-circle-thing,
or (2) of trimming the top flange so the top still fits on, but so that it
lowers it a bit. I actually wish they had a mini-hopper, just like they used
to have mini-jars for blenders.
All said I'm in heaven. I only feel a little guilty and irresponsible. Now I
have my ultimate, beautiful grinder. Now for those pesky 2001 taxes. I think
however that since coffee is what makes me productive, it must be a tax
write off....

You guys are all lucky.  Your coffee stuff fits in your kitchen.  All of
mine is on a rolling cart thing (I think the folks who gave it to me
said it was a microwave cart) in my living room.  It is the only room
large enough in my house that I can't clean it (were I to do such a
thing) by holding two dustcloths in my hands, and spinning.
Who said your stuff has to go on your kitchen counter, anyway?
Be well,

Adam, I'm right in the middle of remodeling so I can add 4' of coffee
counter.  Oh, and there will be room for the new Mazzer, too.  I told my
wife, who sleeps later than I do, "I got the quietest one they make, it was
a little more, but I thought you'd appreciate not being wakened."  It almost
worked, I guess she knows me too well.   ;)   Dan

Try thinking out of the box.  Cut a hole in the bottom of the cabinet 
that is just over the hopper and fill it from inside the cabinet.

The problem is, I not only bought a Mazzer, I buy the cases of wine, 
too.  Enjoying good food and drink is a bad/expensive habit.  Maybe I'll be 
a Buddhist monk in my next life.

True Susan, and it is a good thing, but very often, sex is either preceded, 
or followed, or both, by the expensive food and drink, and I wouldn't have 
it any other way.

Adam,
That isn't fair!  I have been putting off the grinder debate for a long
time!   I had a cowboy friend, (was 83 back in 1980) who I rode with some.
He kept telling me how good his pictures were, and I that needed to come and
see them some time.  I was riding and taking some shots (pictures that is,
we have to remember this is a coffee group) and he kept telling me that his
"leaker" camera took really good pictures.  If fact that is all he could
talk about was his "leaker."  I finally went to the bunkhouse and he showed
me some very good pictures, and then he got out his "leaker."  What I gazed
at was a beautiful WWII vintage Leica with all the bells and whistles!  His
"leaker" could really take good pictures and then I knew why.  So, when the
Solis dies, the Mini will be on order!
Les
PS. Tom, why don't you carry some high end grinders for us?

 Lisa I LOL on the holding 2 clothes and spinning. Our house is about =
1200sq.ft. and a real small kitchen, I have to keep all my coffee stuff =
in an old 3 shelf pie safe, and take it out when I use it and put it =
back when I am done.

 Jim you beat me to this answer
Try thinking out of the box.  Cut a hole in the bottom of the cabinet 
that is just over the hopper and fill it from inside the cabinet.
Sounds like a reasonable solution to  the problem. and you could store =
your beans in the space left.

Ron, your house is twice as big as mine.  Add the chow, the cat, the
kitten, the 5k books, the computer network, two coffee roasters, a drip
pot, a french press, 30 lbs. of greens, the espresso maker with all of
it's little bits, the ibrik, various cannisters and a coffee grinder,
and it gets a tad crowded around here.
Add that I want more books, a hottop, a Mazzer, one of those Solis
semi-autos, more greens, a Chemex and another vacuum pot (my last two
died untimely deaths), and it is probably good that I have to live on a
librarian's salary .
Be well,
Lissa

That would be small now wouldn't it? It all relative. The size of your =

amount of stuff gets to be to much for the size of your house to =
contain, your either downsize or get a bigger house, then with the =
additional space of a bigger house, you get more stuff. and so on. 
I believe George Carlin did a skit on this in one of his comedy =
routines.
Enjoying a nice cup of Pluma this morning. have a nice day. 
Off to work.
