Should I buy a Eureka Mignon Specialita single dose hopper?

Single dosing has taken over the speciality coffee world by storm - no doubt. If you're looking to start single dosing (we'll define exactly what this is shortly if you don't know), the question becomes whether or not you splurge on a grinder specifically designed for single dosing or simply buy a modification for a normal espresso grinder and save some dough?

The Specialita isn't specifically designed for single dosing but will a Eureka Mignon Specialita single dose hopper essentially give you the same thing?

Let's start by defining single dosing.

What exactly is single dosing?

Simply put - single dosing refers to a method of grinding in which you're solely grinding for the very shot you're about to pull ONLY. In other words, you aren't filling your bean hopper with beans. You're measuring out the exact amount of beans you're looking for, preferably with a coffee scale, inserting those into the bean hopper, and ONLY grinding those beans leaving your hopper 100% empty at the end.

Here's how a Eureka Mignon Specialita single dose hopper would work:

  • Measure your beans to the 10th of a gram
  • Insert only those into your bean hopper
  • Grind only that amount
  • That's it - you just single dosed!

What are the benefits of single dosing?

We're huge fans of single dosing as it really optimizes efficiency and helps you get the most out of your coffee beans. Additionally, it allows you to store your coffee beans properly - in an airtight container instead of leaving them in your bean hopper allowing them to slowly die in there. Fresh beans is a MASSIVE component when it comes to making café-quality coffee at home. It's something that is often overlooked after the initial excitement of researching machines and grinders has passed.

Single dosing also allows the user the seamlessly switch between beens without making major grind adjustments. Being able to test and try different beans without a fuss (or mess) is just awesome if you ask us. Knowing all this - does a Eureka Mignon Specialita Single dose hopper sound like something you should invest in yet?
