Eggstractor coffee grinds remover
peterz
Here is something I have been using for a while to blow out the burr chamber on my Mazzer Mini. B)

This is what it looks like on the shelf in a store:

They show up in thrift stores for about fifty cents. Usually unused, but all you need is the bellows section anyway:

It is a pretty simple device.

Here is a pic of the bottom:

It works great on My Mazzer Mini.
Just remove the hopper, place the bellows on the adjustment ring and pump a few times.

It also fits on the Mazzer Major:

You may have noticed the one on the Major is longer...

I found two at two different times, in two different thrift stores.
Each were fifty cents a piece.
I guess they come in different sizes, but they work the same.

looks like a pump thing sort of.
I wonder if a clean toilet plunger might work too, one of those black ones with the extension on it, slip it in there and give it a push or two.

interesting either way....

If it has starbucks beans stuck in it... there would be no need to use a clean plunger. I don't think the taste would change s:8

But, what a waste of a perfectly good plunger.Grin

Thanks, peterz, for another fine contribution. Just what I need for my Major. I've been smacking mine with a cupped hand, but this is just what I'm looking for. I guess size does matter sometimes.

Originally I was looking for one of those accordian collapsible storage containers that were popular on infomercials a few years ago. :|

This showed up instead, and it works great. ;)

In a hardware store I did see a very small plunger, totally out of lucite and silicon rubber I guess..... c:4
A designer plunger about a foot long. s:4

It would work also, but more expensive... :(

and too much of a conversation starter.s:3

LOL! Say, you can still find accordian fold bottles at photography stores. They are used to keep O2 from developer chemicals. And, they are coffee brown!
