Eureka Mignon Specialita vs. Perfetto

*update - the Eureka Mignon Perfetto has been discontinued as of 2020. You can shop the Eureka Mignon Specialita here*

Keeping these two grinders in stock has been a struggle. Ever since their release, the Specialita and Perfetto from Italian grinder manufacturer extraordinaire Eureka have been a massive hit here in the States. Before we get into the comparison (just jump down below to see that) let's get into how these two came about.

Out with the old, in with the new!

For so long the Eureka Mignon Instantaneo was the only Mignon around. It was such a hit, Eureka chose to expand on it. Now, the line consists of the Silenzio, Specialita and Perfetto while they slowly phase out the Instantaneo. So, what exactly did they change?


Eureka made a slight design change and made the hopper more vertical making it virtually impossible for beans to hide. Sorry coffee beans - you're fate has been sealed.

Slightly different bean hopper design (more vertical) - While it may look exactly the same, trust us it isn't. Instantaneo owners all love their grinders for the most part. The most common gripe on it, however, has been the hopper - beans tend to get stuck on the sides prompting a quick nudge or flick of the hopper to release them. 

Silent Casing - ALL the newer Mignons now contain a more heavy-duty casing with even more insulation than previous models making the Specialita, Silenzio and Perfetto quieter than ever. This is pretty standard for Eureka as they make the quietest domestic grinder we've ever come across in the Atom.

Programmable Timer With A Gorgeous Touchscreen! - Perhaps the biggest improvement/upgrade is the touchscreen. Now you can go even further than the manual timer with two programmable settings via a touchscreen on the new Mignons (minus the Silenzio). 

Programmable based on time, users can program their ideal grind for single and double shots in addition to manual grinders on-demand. 

Anti-Clumping Chute - Eureka has made the grounds chute wider and added an anti-clumping device to ensure your grind is consistent and as fluffy as possible.
