Eureka Mignon Specialita Espresso Grinder
The Eureka Mignon Specialita walks the line between a focus on grind quality and unprecedented convenience for the home barista. The grinder starts with Eureka's attention to internals, coupling a 55mm flat burrset to a stepless grind system that adjusts from below the motor to make cleaning and disassembly easier. This winning combo comes ensconced in a sound-insulating case of thick metal mated with rubber mounts and gaskets that reduce the sound of crushing beans to a whisper. Finally, a programmable touchscreen makes it easy to set your espresso dose for easy accuracy.
Features and Functionality
Silenced Grind - A sound-insulated case helps keep the Specialita quieter than most.
Touchscreen Controls - Adjust your grind time for single, double and continuous modes with a backlit resistive touchscreen.
55mm Stepless Burrs - With the biggest burrs available on a Mignon; these hardened steel flat burrs make short work of coffee beans.
Bottom Burr Adjust - By adjusting the grind from below the motor mount, the Specialita preserves your grind setting between disassemblies.
New Chute - A wider chute design with Eureka's anti-clumping system makes for fluffier grounds.
Better Burrset - It sounds like a small upgrade, but the grind quality with the Specialita's 55mm burrs is a nice step up from the Mignon's stock 50mm discs.
Touchscreen - While a monochrome screen sounds a little dated, the high contrast and large digits make it exceptionally usable without looking out of place.
Size - It's tough to find a grinder actually sized for the home kitchen that works as well as the Specialita.
Touchscreen - The touchscreen is resistive, meaning it has a soft, flexible screen. You'll need to take care to press lightly.
