EK43 S Overview
Carrying on the legacy and quality of the already beloved EK43, the EK43 S is the space-saving little cousin that does not compromise on performance or grinding. The results of the Mahlkonig EK43 S are exceptional with this robust small grinder with high grinding capacity. Outstanding particle size distribution enhancing the coffee sweetness and reducing bitterness with high extraction rates are no different with the smaller EK43 S than the rest of the Mahlkonig coffee grinder lineup.
Its ability to adapt to filter, espresso, fine Turkish coffee or other brew method grinding couldn't be more natural. With the new dial, also upgraded on the EK 43 grinder, you're able to adjust between 16 adjustments with even more settings available. To get even finer adjustments and closer to your espresso or filter coffee settings one can adjust the screw behind the dial.
As part of the HEMRO Group, Mahlkonig is under the umbrella of leaders in grinder innovations. Their combination of the most recent technologies and their traditional grinding expertise developed over decades holds their place as the king of grinders. The EK43s gets its outstanding particle size distribution from the 97mm flat cast steel burrs in the burr chamber located directly behind the grind dial.
EK43 S Bean Hopper
The most relevant difference between the EK43 and EK 43 S is it's smaller space-saving corpus. With savings anywhere from five inches to twelve inches, your EK43 S is excellent for a lower volume commercial application or even for the prosumer. Depending on hopper size you'll get this reduction or addition in height without ever compromising functionality. The EK43s is compatible with all Mahlkonig bean hoppers: the 500g hopper, 800g hopper (included), and the 1500g hopper.
Mahlkonig Build Quality
As always Mahlkonig after decades of experience implements some minute changes that contribute immensely to build quality and the ease of which it is to find Mahlkonig parts. The sturdy stainless steel feet add stability to the EK43 S. It's hefty 63 lb gross weight further illustrates the quality and well-built feel of the newest in the Mahlkonig line-up. In response to more people moving towards on and off dosing Mahlkonig grinders, both the EK43 and the EK43 S have received stainless steel on and off button located on the right side of the grinder.
