Common Questions and Answers
Q: What is the difference between a flat burr grinder like the EKK43 and a conical burr grinder?
A: A flat burr grinder like the EKK43 is preferred by many professionals in search of the greatest grind consistency. It grinds the coffee beans into particles that are even in size, which promotes balanced extraction. As a result, the flavors in the coffee are well harmonized.
The coffee ground in a conical burr grinder consists of bimodal particles. This is another way of saying that the coffee bits are different sizes, which is not a bad thing. It simply changes the end product.
Whereas a uniform grind promotes a blending of flavor characteristics in the coffee for a smooth tasting experience, a bimodal grind has the tendency to turn up the volume on brighter flavors.
The downside to a bimodal grind is that the finer coffee particles may become over-extracted fairly easily, leading to astringent and bitter flavors.
In many ways, it’s easy to get a consistently delicious coffee from any roast with a flat burr grinder, which is a big reason it’s so popular in cafes and roasteries.
Q: What is stepless grind adjustment and how does it work in the EKK43?
A: To get a good idea of what a stepless grinder does, it’s helpful to compare it to the alternative: the stepped grinder.
On a coffee grinder, you’ll have a system that allows you to change the fineness of the grind. This selection is key for brewing coffee whether it’s French press, Turkish coffee, or espresso.
A stepped grinder has a system with a set number of adjustments. It may be between 10 and 20 and go from very fine to very coarse, but there are no “in-between” adjustments available.
You do have the in-between adjustments with a stepless grinder as there are no presets. You’ll be able to make changes in any increment you like to achieve the most accurate settings possible, a big step toward creating the precise tasting profile you want from your coffee.
One thing that can be difficult with a stepless grinder is going back to a grind setting once you’ve left it as there are no notches to guide you. But with the EKK43, the numbered adjustments give you a map to recall your settings with greater ease.
Q: How does burr size affect the coffee?
A: It’s not necessarily something that you’d suspect, but burr size can actually make a big difference in the coffee itself.
It makes sense when you think about the nature of larger burrs. They have more cutting teeth and a larger surface to grind the coffee in one single rotation. Consequently, they need to spin fewer times than smaller burrs to get the job done.
This creates less friction and heat buildup inside the grinder, effectively reducing the risk of heat damage to the coffee. If a grinder is overheated, it can easily make ground coffee taste overly roasted and bitter.
That’s where the EKK43’s 98 mm burrs are an advantage. They keep grinding cool not just during short-term grinding, but throughout the day as you grind back-to-back retail bags, ensuring optimal quality at all times.
