Mahlkonig EK43 Commercial Coffee Grinder


Powerful and Consistent

Hey, guys. Ryan from Prima Coffee equipment here. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Mahlkonig EK43. You might be familiar with this grinder. Over the last five years, it has become popular in cafes all over the world because of its reputation for producing extremely uniform grounds. Mahlkonig in 2018 released some new updates to this grinder that include stainless steel buttons on the side that have a longer lifespan, also a milled aluminum burr carrier and auger that basically ensures more consistency and production from grinder to grinder.

On top of that, we have stainless steel feet, which are going to hold up longer and look a little nicer. So, the EK43 has a set of vertically mounted steel 98-millimeter burrs and they are cast steel. So, they're extremely hard and they have a lifespan of about 14,000 pounds. And combined with the grinder's power of almost two horses, it produces some of the most uniform grounds of any commercial grinder that we know of today. The 2.2-pound hopper can hold quite a bit of coffee. You can fit a 5-pound bag right underneath the spout, there's quite a bit of room, also a bag clamp.

This grinder is great for grinding for batch brew into a basket or even into a bag like I mentioned. At Prima, we like to put a milk pitcher in here for our pour overs. One other great thing about using this grinder for pour over is that it has a very low retention because of the vertically mounted burrs. So, you can put 20 grams in there and expect about 19 and a half to 20 grams out, so especially if you're single dosing on a pour-over bar, this is a great grinder for that choice because of low retention. So that's the EK43, check it out at
