Eureka Atom 65 Espresso Grinder
The Eureka Atom 65 strikes a beautiful balance between commercial-built power and home-focused convenience. With design cues from both the original Atom and commercial Zenith grinders, the Atom 65 truly gives you the best of both worlds. Eureka's espresso-built 65mm burrs power through double shots in record time (18 grams in ~5.5 seconds) and dose in an impressive stream (thanks to Eureka's refined ACE system) that's free of clumps and excess static. Normally, a grinder this production-focused comes at the cost of a large footprint—both physically and sonically. Instead, your morning will stay blissfully silent thanks to the Atom's sound-insulated case, while its relatively small 6x9 dimensions will let you tuck it almost anywhere.
Features and Functionality
65mm Flat Burrs - The Atom 65 uses the same burrs as Eureka's commercial Zenith line, and can be upgraded to their titanium or RedSpeed finishes.
Silent Grind - A thick, non-resonant case and rubber hush gaskets at common sound exit points give the grinder a soft, low sound easy to hold a conversation over.
ACE System - Eureka's anti-clump and -static grind chute help keep your grounds fluffy and your countertops clean.
Stepless Bottom Burr Adjust - The Atom 65's near-infinite grind adjustments are made from below the motor with an easy knurled knob. This helps to preserve your grind setting when you disassemble your grinder for cleaning.
Programmable Dosing - Program both single and double shot grind times from the color screen, or select the center button to grind manually.
Great Grinds - The combo of burrset, anti-clumping system, and motor give the Atom 65 excellent dosing into your portafilter. Seriously, it's this gorgeous fluffy cascade backlit by the Atom's barista light.
Silence is Golden - That's why its all the more impressive that a grinder so professionally built is still so quiet. A true commercial-class grinder in a home kitchen-size case is a sight to be seen.
Value - The Atom 65 is a phenomenal step up from most grinders in its price bracket, and manages to do so without sacrificing many of its convenient features.
Spartan Setup - While the Atom is better performing than ever, the firmly-attached portafilter hook and lack of a catch plate are noticeable reductions in accessories.
So Very Tall - At a towering 21 inches with the included hopper, this probably won't fit under your cabinets. Look to the Eureka short hopper or the original Atom hopper for a shorter setup.
How Does it Compare?
The difference from the the Original Atom is more than burr size! Eureka has also changed to a larger motor, giving a little more torque for the larger burrs, faster grind speeds, and a tighter distribution range for espresso.
