Mahlkonig E65S Grinder was built off the same 65 mm flat steel burrs found in the K30 Vario, almost everything else has been rethought and rebuilt to make a better grinder. A slimmer and taller grinder profile takes up less counter space, a new stepless grind adjustment makes for a smoother dial-in, and a new digital display allows for fine-tuned customization of up to 8 stored grinding programs.
A new hopper design holds about 1200 grams of beans, and sports a lid with a new built-in clip for displaying your coffee’s information to your customers, or for holding on to your notes on grind settings and doses for the day. When grinding, an improved declumper will deliver a fluffy and even mound of grounds into your basket, and both the spout and declumper are easily removed for regular cleaning. Grind speed is up there with the best, delivering a dose in about 3-4 seconds. The E65S is also surprisingly quiet compared to the older K30 models – something which is always welcome in a bustling cafe.
The E65S measures about 7.5 inches wide by 11 inches deep, with a height of 30 inches including the standard hopper. Please note that the new hopper design is not compatible with Mahlkonig’s other hoppers at this time. A short hopper for the E65S is expected to be released in the future.
