Mazzer Mini Type A Stepless Doserless Espresso Coffee Grinder

This Mazzer Mini Type A is a great choice for a small cafe/restaurant or even in your home.

Grinding adjustment
  • Stepless – Infinite number of grind settings which allows you really fine-tune your grind. The adjustment dial is located underneath the hopper. The entire dial is numbered so you can remember your current grind setting easier. Turn clockwise for a coarser grind and counterclockwise for a finer grind.
  • Adjustment lever – This lever screws into the adjustment dial and helps you easily change your grind settings. There are 5 positions this lever can be installed. Once you find your correct grind setting, you can move the lever to another position that won’t stick out the sides.
Grinding burrs
  • Flat burrs – Large size at 64 mm. The larger the size, the more of a grinding surface, resulting in faster production.
  • High rpm – Faster spinning rate at 1600 rpm. The higher the speed, the faster the production, which can increase efficiency and reduce wait times.
  • Easy access – Remove the bean hopper. Turn the grinding adjust to the coarser direction until the top assembly comes off. This will give you access to the burrs and the grinding chamber. The burrs themselves are held in with Allen key screws.
Electronic controls
  • Multiple dosing options – Press the dosing button once for a single dose. Press the dosing button quickly twice for a double dose. Hold the dosing button for a manual dose.
  • Time-based grinding – You can adjust the time for each automatic dose up to 99.95 seconds max. You can make very tiny adjustments by 0.05 second increments.
  • Dosing count – This helps keep track of usage. Displays the total count of automatic doses, not manual doses. Single doses will add 1 to the tonal count. Double doses will add 2 to the total count.
Bean hopper
  • Low profile – The total height of the grinder without the hopper is a little under 12″. The bean hopper adds another 5″ bringing the total height to approximately 17″. The total capacity is approximately 1.3 pounds of whole coffee beans, a little over half the size of a standard kilo bag.
  • Set screw – Secures the hopper to the grinder. Serves as a reminder for users from quickly removing the hopper if it is full of beans.
  • Finger guard – Prevents users from “accidentally” putting their fingers in the grinding burrs.
  • Stopper – A door near the bottom of the hopper can be pushed in to close the opening. This allows you to remove the hopper with beans inside so you can easily change the beans. There will be some beans already passed in the burrs which will have to be ground out first before removing the hopper.
Portafilter fork
  • Ease of use – Allows you to rest your portafilter while grinding for a complete hands-free operation. Accommodates most portafilters. The clearance from the fork to the funnel is approximately 2.625″.
  • Removable – You can remove the fork if you wish to grind into a container. There are 2 Phillips screws that hold the fork in place. The clearance underneath the funnel is approximately 5.25″.
Grinds catch tray
  • Easy to “install” – There are no screws or hooks. The tray form fits to the front legs of the grinder. If you need to slide your grinder over on your counter, the tray moves with it.
  • Convenient – As easy as it is to install, it’s just as easy to remove to discard any excess grinds. There are other comparable models that do not have a tray at all.
Accessories included
  • Tamper – A really nice double-sided tamper. One side measures 58 mm, the other side measures 53 mm. This can serve as a good backup just in case you lose your current one.
  • Brush – A simple brush. Measures 20 mm in width. Used for general cleaning in and around the grinder.
  • Instruction manual – Written in 6 languages: Italian, English, French, German, Portuguese. Instructions also work for the Super Jolly, Lux, and other Mini models.

Espresso Coffee Grinder Warnings:

  • Changing grind settings: It is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered on and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. To remedy this, you will have to open up the grinder to get access to the grinding burrs. This issue will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
  • Electrical cord: The cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish/slice to damage the cord.
  • Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: We have confirmed that the manufacturer tests EVERY grinder with coffee beans before it leaves their facility. Unfortunately, they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging.
  • Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest-quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, try using a different blend of beans.
  • Electrical: To avoid electrical damage (which is not considered a manufacturer’s defect), please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. A surge without protection can damage a grinder at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.
  • Burr cleaning: For routine maintenance of the grinding burrs, we recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or the burr carrier for cleaning (unless absolutely necessary) as re-assembly can cause damage.
  • Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flathead screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.

  • Manual switch models are no longer being produced by the factory. Mazzer decided to no longer produce a manual on/off switch version because they feared their grinders may accidentally be left powered on all day - this is how quiet they run without beans.
  • Please note that Mazzer Mini Electronic Type A has the display and touchpad for programming time for single and double doses on top of the doserless funnel whereas the Mazzer Mini Electronic Type B has the display and programming touchpad on the bottom front panel just behind the doserless funnel. Programming overall remains the same. In addition, the Type A Mazzer Mini espresso coffee grinder is activated by depressing one of the 2 programmed dose buttons on the touchpad over the doserless funnel while the Type B Mazzer Mini espresso coffee grinder is activated by depressing the microswitch with the portafilter once for single-dose timing and twice for double dose timing. On Type A, the continuous button needs to be depressed and held for continuous manual grinding, and on Type B, the portafilter needs to be depressed and held into the microswitch for manual continuous grinding.

    2. Just got my new Mazzer Mini E Type A, it' wonderful. Is there a way to reset the shot counter? I've searched online a bunch and seems to be either it's not possible, or it's some super secret way that is buried under an advanced menu accessible by button combinations.

      Sorry, to maintain the integrity of the usage on these grinders, there is no way to reset the count.

      Please understand there are coffee shops who rely on this counter to see production with a match to sales volume. In addition, people who buy used want to know how many sessions were made on a particular grinder.

    4. Hi, My name is Brad Evanger, I purchased a Bezzera Duo from you a couple years ago, and I have a Mazzer Luigi srl grinder that I would like to change out the doser attachement to a electronic funnel style. Do you sell this attachement? Thanks, Brad
