I had experience with an older model of R58 prior to purchasing, but appreciate the touch screen unit and other minor updates. Built in shot timer is a nice touch. Built like a tank and looks great. Like the flexibility of the built in water tank or direct plumbing option. Warms up reasonably quick and being able to schedule 2 on/off times per day is handy. Great machine!
Perfect, more compact height for countertop but grinds great for its size. Using it with a Rocket Espresso Cinquantotto.
Locked down our grinds for our EK32 once we received the unit. It a lot more consistent than our old Bunn G3. So far I am very happy with the EK43 performance. Tested the grinds by taste and process and the quality is noticeable

Great grinder and I had very good customer service - Scot
Had our first event with it, and we are still getting used to it but the Appia Life 2-group is doing great for us! Steam wands are a little shorter than we were used to with our old machine, but we are learning!
