Subject: Mazzer Mini Macro Photo Project
I have posted links to these photos elsewhere (CoffeeGeek and Home-
Barista) but never here, so I figured I'd post a link or two and get
some feedback (from any who might like to respond, that is).

Since acquiring a used Mazzer Mini coffee grinder this year, and doing
a bit of "take apart and clean-up" work on it, I have started a small
photo project dedicated to the Mazzer Mini.

I've done a lot of standard photos (and some fisheye shots) of various
breakdowns of the grinder, but I think of most interest are the macro
photos done of various components like the burrs.

Here are links to the two main pages I have set up for the Mazzer Mini
photos:

http://www.ruscelli.com/mazzer_mini.htm

http://www.ruscelli.com/mazzer_mini_burrs.htm

I hope these photos might be helpful to those who are considering a
Mazzer Mini as their own grinder (and would like a more detailed look
before buying) or for those who want to delve further into their own
machine (for cleaning the burrs or taking apart the doser or whatever
the goal might be).

I'm not a coffee-machine-related tech person or anything. Just a
photographer with interest in the Mazzer Mini grinder for my own uses,
and I am photo-documenting some of my experiences with the grinder to
share with others.

Thanks for the feedback. ;-)

And yes, you're absolutely right -- the group does need to be pared
down. But I'll likely be leaving it as is until I've finished putting
everything that I want out there (then I'll reassess what I've got out
there). My guess is that I'll probably eventually take it down by
about 30 percent, give or take some odd number (again, just as guess
at this point).

My feeling on having lots of photos is that it doesn't hurt to have
them out there (since I'm using nobody's web space but my own), and
there are times when more visual "choices" are desirable even when
there are only subtle differences in some of the photos. That's just
something that (for me) comes from doing lots of different types of
photography for lots of different people. Put 10 photos out there of
any one thing, ask five people to pick the one that illustrates the
point best, and you might get five different choices amongst the
people who were asked. Or give one person 10 to choose from, and only
one might really knock his socks off. Give him 100 to choose from and
he'll find 10 that he really likes. But his 10 likely won't match
anyone else's 10. Even though this is only a small, personal project,
I feel myself somewhat influenced by the same considerations that go
into a lot of my paid work, if you can understand what I mean.

So yeah...I do agree that there are many more photos than I need to
have out there. But, I probably won't be changing that radically --
mostly because I don't really have a personally compelling reason to
remove too many of the photos (as yet, anyway). ;-)

very nice job


but cut out about 75% of them -- repetitive!

When encountering information, (I've used these for luthering and
music theory sites), I either compile them into hardcopy for ancillary
manuals, or let a couple "spiders" recreate a virtual facsimile.
Perhaps dating present means if at times useful.

Thank you, Karl. Those photos have gotten a fairly nice reception on
the couple of forums where I posted some of them, and I'm going to
slowly add a few more images to the overall group.

There's seemingly only so much "scope" to a little photo project like
this, but I keep thinking of different things to add as I go along.
And who knows, I might branch it out to encompass other equipment as
well, but that's something to think about at a later date.

But those photos will be kept on my website as a permanent reference,
so if you bookk them or refer to this post in the future, they
won't change locations or disappear (as occasionally tends to happen
with some of the more . . . "temporary" photo posting sites that are
usually used for short-term posting -- can't remember how many times
I've seen posts referring to photos on some Yahoo group or other or
Photobucket or wherever that are there for a while but not there a
year or two later when you want to see them, if you know what I
mean).

Outstanding photos. Should be a terrific resource if I ever have to
change burrs on mine. Thanks for sharing them.
