Note, for fans of lighter roast coffee we’d recommend a grinder with more power. The Mignon is better suited to medium to darker roasts.
We are pleased to bring you the Eureka Mignon Istantaneo doserless espresso grinder directly from Florence, Italy. This grinder brings a unique commercial (all metal) build quality to the compact grinder market at the most affordable price. For those who are seeking a small, affordable grinder with the longevity and presence to match their high end espresso machine, this grinder could be a great fit. It may be small, but it’s a real work horse.
High quality flat, hardened steel burrs and ultra precise micrometric (infinite, stepless) grind adjustment result in a more uniform grind consistency that will be easier to fine tune than other grinders in this class. Eureka has been pioneering this superb adjustment technology since 1975.
The dose is dispensed directly into the portafilter, and can be controlled either manually (on-demand) or with an adjustable timer (1-14 seconds). The portafilter holding fork can be easily adjusted to the height you need for hands free grinding, or removed altogether for bulk grinding. The Mignon can deliver a great drip coffee grind as well as a precise espresso grind, dedicate it to whatever brewing style you prefer in your home, office or cafe.
Adjusting the grind moves the bottom burr (as opposed to the top burr, in most other espresso grinders), which means the adjustment mechanism can’t get clogged with old grounds. Also, this is one of the only grinders that can be easily opened for routine cleaning without affecting your grind setting. By simply unscrewing three bolts, you’ll be able to keep your grinder factory fresh, with no need to recalibrate and waste coffee!
Like many compact doserless grinders, speed and clumpiness can be an issue when going super fine. Dosing more coffee into your portafilter, tapping your portafilter on a tamping mat, or giving the grounds a little stir can smooth things out and help you get a nice, even extraction.

Doserless grinders dispense coffee directly into the portafilter. When combined with a grind timer, this design improves coffee freshness, consistency and minimizes waste.
Stepless grinders offer infinite control of grind fineness. This allows easier experimentation with espresso shot time or volume. There are a number of different styles of stepless adjustment, such as worm drive or micrometric, which offer even more precise on-the-fly adjustments with one hand.
