Changing the Burr Set

From start to finish, the entire process of swapping a burr set takes around 5 minutes and requires only two metric hex keys. That being said, the average life span of a set of Mazzer conical burrs is around 1600lbs of beans, which roughly equates to 30 years of usage if you were grinding 1lb a week.

So you’re wondering why we went to the trouble of posting this video?

Truth be told, we’re looking at other burrs from various manufacturers that will offer slightly different grind characteristics. Since it’s an easy task swapping burr sets on the HG-1, it’s conceivable that the home user might eventually purchase other mills to try.
