I finally got my Mini-Bunn, with the Ditting burrs, up and running this week! So far I've seasoned it with 5 lbs. of rice and a few pounds of throw-away coffee, and I am already loving the results.
This used to be the case from a banged up G2, and I removed almost half of the total height, some from the top and some from the bottom. Now it fits nicely beneath the upper cabinets. There are still some aspects of this that need to get done, including a new paint job and building a cleaner and more permanent upper funnel set-up. (Right now I just have the cut-down remains of the old funnel held in place with duct tape ...
) But as soon as I had it far enough along that I could reassemble it and give it a try, I couldn't resist.
The little catch cup is held on with magnets; for big batches I use the tall metal cup seen on the right-side of the photo, which is tall enough that I can just rest it on the bottom grate.
I'm really grateful to Kurt and the others who have contributed to this thread; you guys made it much less scary to take on a project like this.
