The Eureka Mignon Magnifico is an all-purpose grinder with 55 mm flat hardened steel burrs that give it the highest output in Eureka’s Mignon range. Not only that, the Magnifico features specially designed "diamond inside" burrs which keep their edge for longer compared to stock burrs. The touchscreen display is a stand-out feature for a grinder so small, making adjustment as easy as it should be. With its larger burrs, the Mignon Magnifico can produce up to 1.8g of coffee per second for espresso, meaning it can produce a barista-quality 18g double shot in as little as 10 seconds.
Features and Performance
First of all—the touch screen. It's vibrant, with large font size and clean controls. Grind time is adjustable in tenths of a second using the "+" and "-" buttons, and you can freely switch between single and double shots. Also, you can switch to a manual mode for continuous grinding, or lock in your timed settings to keep other people from fiddling.
For performance, it's equipped with 55 mm flat hardened steel burrs and a strong 1350 RPM motor with an output of 1.4 - 1.8g/s for espresso and 1.9 - 2.5g/s for a brew. Eureka's ACE system helps prevent clumping by eliminating static in ground coffee, which in turn ensures dose consistency.
It's quiet, measuring in at about 73 dBA, so you won't ever need to stop a conversation to make your drinks. It brings Eureka's patented micrometric adjustment, so you expect smooth, stepless adjustments when dialling in the grind. Plus, the portafilter holder fork is adjustable to work with any portafilter on the market.
Why You Should Get It
The Mignon Magnifico is a superb espresso grinder, with quiet grinding and touchscreen controls. The micrometric grind adjustment knob is one of the easiest ways to make very fine changes to grind size that we've experienced, as well. With the special "diamond inside" burrs, the burrs will keep their edge for longer and you'll save money on maintenance down the line. Plus, with a height of under 14 inches, this coffee and espresso grinder will fit just about anywhere. If you're looking for a compact, espresso-focused grinder, this is the one for you.
Touch Screen Display
The Mignon Magnifico's interface is perhaps one of the easiest we've worked with. Grind time is measured in seconds, and a tap of the "+" or "-" buttons will adjust by a tenth of a second. For large adjustments, you can press and hold to race through the seconds. Pressing the "+" and "-" buttons at the same time will lock in your timed setting, and pressing in the single and double shot buttons at the same time will switch to manual mode.
Eureka's patented stepless micrometric adjustment is precise and easy to use. When preparing espresso, that level of control is vital when dialling in the grind. You need to find that sweet spot quickly and easily to truly get the best results in the cup. The Eureka Mignon Specialità accomplishes just that.
Diamond Inside 55mm Flat Burrs
The Eureka Magnifico uses 55mm flat burrs made of steel that has been treated with a patented cryonic treatment known as "Diamond Inside." This unique process results in greater hardness and resistance to wear, ensuring longer burr life. When grinding for espresso, the Mignon Magnifico has an output of up to 1.8g/sec.
Multi-Position Portafilter Fork
The Mignon Magnifico features an adjustable portafilter fork that can be raised or lowered. Depending on the height of your portafilter, the fork can be positioned to allow for hands-free grinding, locking the portafilter head securely beneath the spouts.
