The funny thing is that the Mini E Doserless is touted as "A Neatnik's Delight" in Dan Kehn's grinder review round up. Not that I don't believe Dan, his reviews are great and he's helped me decide on things in the past.
In my opinion, this little Mazzer is neat as far as not leaving much behind but I swear on almost anything that the MACAP is cleaner, it doesn't have this spray of microgrinds everywhere. I was trying to avoid laying down a paper towel everytime I use the MACAP, as I got more and more experience with the grinder, the mess left behind was getting smaller and smaller and now it's almost down to no grinds left on the counter. This is all technique with the MACAP but with the Mazzer the doserless chute does all the work for me, it does a very good job but I wouldn't say it's the cleanest of the doserless models. I have yet to find the distribution problems that others complain about this grinder, however, I sort of see what they mean by it and I turn the PF as it shoots the grinds out - if this is what they mean then I can confirm it happens with all the PF I attach under it. My 58mm PF does the same thing under it, the 53's sit under it and are pretty much dead center just the same as the larger ones.
So what do you make of the motor theory? Do you think it can't candle extreme loads like the MACAP? I don't see any similar models in the Mazzer line that have a bag clip under the chute for heavy duty use although I did see a retro fit kit that can do this for the dosing models, they obviously are driving the smaller burrs. Hmm, I'm starting to think the larger burrs grind significantly faster so the motor does not need to be on larger. One thing I did notice between the two grinders is speed, I didn't time it (I should just for kicks) to just see how much faster the Mazzer grinds 16 grams of coffee, I'm guessing about 5-7 seconds faster. Now it's beginning to compare like a high revving sports car next to a heavy duty truck, one can devliver faster but the other can go all day.
Other than that, the two grinders are pretty much the same size in height and weight.
