What's the key info on this grinder?
The EK Omnia is the latest release form the masters of coffee grinders Mahlkonig. It's the next generation of precision coffee grinding in the EK range, the grinder that redefined coffee grinding within the speciality coffee industry.
It offers 3 grind modes across manual, timed and digital, as follows:
Classic Mode: Keep the same routine and stay with the classic.
Time Mode: Time-based grinding ideal for espresso.
Library Mode: Save up to 10 recipes, grind size is automatically adjusted, and volumetric dosing hopper unit doses the right amount of beans.
The volume mode essentially means you can control the grind adjustment to a very precise level, by digitally controlling the burr distance via the touch screen interface.
Other than this, in comes with 2 new groundbreaking accessories.
Firstly, a Pre-Dosing Unit (PDU) = Volumetric dosing hopper, which has the ability to dose precise amounts of coffee based on the library mode in play.
Secondly, it has an adjustable Portafilter Holder (that can be switched with removable front cover) - Magnetic to allow portafilter holding, is attached to front for even more convenience. So it can actually behave like an on demand grinder to work with portafilters as well as the likes of the E65 or E80 GBW.
Meet the EK Omnia:
The EK Omnia grinder is equipped with a suite of advancements that make it an indispensable tool for high-demand, high-expectation settings. The new technological innovation of Library Mode allows users to save their favourite grinding recipes, including notes for the bean name and target coffee grams.
In combination with the Pre-Dosing Unit (PDU), a volumetric hopper*, EK Omnia automatically adjusts to the exact burr distance in microns and grind time, according to the recipe. The front-facing LED screen is a powerful and easy-to-use interface to set ultra-precise micro-adjustments of the grind size.
Saved grinding recipes seamlessly integrate volumetric dosing with micron-level grind size settings. The grind size, meticulously measured in real-time by micron distance, eliminates any guesswork or reliance on arbitrary dials. When a recipe is selected, the grinder instantly fine-tunes both the burr distance and pre-dosing unit to precisely match the chosen parameters.
