Mazzer Mini Electronic Type B V2 Stepless Doserless Espresso Coffee Grinder

This upgraded version of the Mazzer Mini Type B has newer easier controls. On the previous version, adjusting the time of the grind required a screwdriver. The new version comes with easy to use buttons and a display.

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 - A very fast 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. Allen key screws hold these burrs in place.
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 has numbers 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 where you can install this lever. Once you find your correct grind setting, you can move the lever to another position. This is so it won't stick out the sides of the Mazzer Mini Type B.
Grinds catch tray
  • Easy to "install" - There are no screws or hooks. The tray form fits onto the front legs of the Mazzer Mini Type B. 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.
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 manual dosing.
  • 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 total count. Double doses will add 2 to the total count.
Portafilter fork
  • Ease of use - Allows you to rest your portafilter while grinding for completely 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".
Bean hopper
  • Low profile - The total height of the Mazzer Mini Type B 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. That is 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 slide 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 in the burrs which you will have to grind out first before removing the hopper.
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.
  • Short Bean Hopper- Measures 320 gr. in capacity.
  • 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: For most grinders, 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: Most manufacturers test their grinders with coffee beans before they leave 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 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.

      When we reordered more Mazzer grinders, we noticed there were some changes. However, as far as we can see, there isn't any significant change.  The burrs are the same. The motors are the same. The hoppers (we request a shorter version) are the same. The electronic control buttons are all in the same place (The Type A have a different look to them).
      The few things we noticed are they added a logo to the front of the funnel.  The body shape seems smaller.  The grinding adjustment wheel has been updated.  Also, the included brush is different.
      The only major difference is the price as we are clearing out of the old style.

      Please use the diagrams on our web site to determine the part number which can be searched on our web site for parts availability and pricing. Sorry, we do not give part numbers due to the fact that manufacturer's usually can have more than one version of parts in the same model grinder.

    4. Hi, we bought this grinder a few months ago. Here are some questions I have: a. How often do we have to clean the Grinder? b. We are using the Lelit Bianca with this grider. I know this depends, etc… but what is the ball park figure (setting) with this grinder/espresso machine recom as a reference? We mostly use .7-to-.9

      This grinder does not need to be taken apart for cleaning. Puly Grind Crystals is the preferred cleaner for the grinding burrs. It should be used when needed or every 6 months.

      Puly Verde works very well for oil build up on the bean hopper and should be used as needed.

      As for grinder settings on Mazzer grinders, please start with the sticker setting where it was set when received. Then, please adjust adjust to the extraction. Unfortunately, different blends of espresso require different settings, and as the roast date gets older, adjustments need to be made.

      A Your grinder does not need to be clean up very often I would say every six months will be more than enough and as far as settings I use mine just three marks before the number 3 and I use it with Paquini Libia 90
    6. Besides the size of the burrs what is the difference between this model and the Mazzer Mini Timer Doser? I am currently using the Rancillio Rocky grinder. Besides being easier to clean, all other things being equal, will the Mazzer improve my coffee?

      Asked by Marvin Israel on June 19, 2019 5:35 pm
      Answered by the admin First, either Mazzer Mini should improve the grind quality over the Rocky because the Mazzer Mini has stepless adjustment - there are no stepped settings like the Rocky so dialing in the precise grind fineness is easier. Second, the bigger the burrs, the less heat retention or greater heat dispersion occurs. The reason is that smaller burrs will be build up heat faster. However, in a grinder for home use with 1-4 extractions, this may not be as important as when entertaining or serving in a cafe. Third, the larger burrs typically have more surfave area to offer better prevision in the grind quality. However, when going to a larger Mazzer grinder with bigger burrs, this means the grinding chamber is larger and may allow more retention of ground coffee - meaning ground coffee sitting in the chamber and going stale with 7 minutes. The workaround is only grinding enough beans needed for the extraction(s).
