Eureka is one of the most reputable manufacturers in the espresso grinder space. One of their most recognisable designs is the compact and aptly named Mignon range. The Mignon grinders have been around for many years, and are built in a small enough package for domestic use, but robustly enough for low volume commercial applications. The Silenzio is one of the latest releases in that form factor.
As reliable, hardy, consistent and easy to use as its predecessors, the new Eureka Mignon Silenzio has some pretty handy features for any barista. First and foremost, as the name implies, it's surprisingly quiet for an espresso grinder, thanks to its sound-insulated construction. It also features both manual, and time-based dosing, using a dial next to the power button. It's also completely stepless and easy to adjust!
The Mignon Silenzio houses 50mm hardened steel burrs which provide an exceptionally consistent grind for the price point. While at its best in the espresso range, it also does pretty well on coarser grinds, making it a perfect all-around grinder for the space-constrained home barista. It features a "hands-free" portafilter fork, that is removable, allowing you to grind into whatever you choose*. It even includes anti-clumping technology, making it a great companion to any high-end domestic espresso machine.

* A note on grinding for manual brewing
While this Eureka grinder is very capable of producing high-quality grinds at many different grind settings, the adjustment dial is calibrated to make it very easy to fine-tune for espresso. It is not ideal for going back and forth between manual brew settings and espresso settings, as it required multiple turns of the dial to do so. That means you may need to spend a bit of time testing to get back to your desired setting. If you want to quickly and easily switch between manual brews and espresso on a regular basis, without having to waste coffee on test grinds, you may want to consider the Eureka Perfetto which is designed for exactly that purpose.
