What is the EK43 (Coffee Burrs)?
The EK43 is a commercial precision grinder that was originally built for grinding spices, but found itself being a key component in the speciality coffee industry after it showed how high a quality grind it was capable of; arguably better than any other grinder in the industry.
This is the latest standard height version. Updates include an improved on/off switch and rubber seal between the motor and the stand.
What's the build quality like?
It is amazingly well built, produced from cast steel and weighs in at 23KG. It has very few actual controls, making it very easy to use and clean. The front facing dial is easy to use and simple but very effective.
but most importantly provides amazing grind quality and distribution with little or no waste. If you’re looking for a precision espresso and / or brew methods, this is officially as good as it gets.
Who is it suited to?
The Mahlkonig EK43 (Coffee Burrs) is perfect for speciality cafes serving filter coffee, but can double as retail grinder too.
For precision filter brewing, the Mahlkonig EK43 has taken things to the next level. If you're looking for a grinder that can deliver exceptional results, with an ultimately class 1 uniform grind with little or no grind retention, then the EK43 is probably what you are looking for.
EK43 Coffee Vs EK43 Turkish:
If you are looking for a grinder for precision espresso on pro equipment, you need the Turkish Burr version, NOT this coffee burr version. If you are looking for a grinder to work with filter coffee methods, this IS the correct version for you.
NOTE: EK43 coffee burrs simply do not grind fine enough for espresso, falling just short of what a commercial machine requires.
Mahlkonig grinders come with a standard 1 year back to base warranty including parts and labour. *See our terms and conditions for further information
