    Mazzer Kony Electronic has landed

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    My Kony arrived today and what a day it has been.

    Upgrade from a Mazzer Mini and if anyone is wondering if there is a difference in taste - absolutely! I havent got it dialled in and dosed exactly yet (19g yielding 23 sec shot) but boy is the flavor jumping out of the cup or what!

    Talk about a clean cup and fruit (currently enjoying some lightly home roasted Ipanema Yellow Catuai)! Like nothing Ive had before at home so far with the Mini. The espresso is definitely in a different league once again as this is my 4th grinder.

    Will post more later, meanwhile here are some pics. Enjoy fellow CSers.

    What can I say, Im somewhat Jealous. My Super Jolly has red led display envy.

    Im curious, what do the metal prongs in the hopper do?

    There is a magnet on it that hangs over the beans/throat of the grind chamber. Not sure if thats how it was meant to go as there was no mention/details of it in the instruction manual. Muppet Man, its probably not necessary really as I have a destoner that I use after each roast as you know. So this would show up any metals in the beans.

    Oh, thanks to Chris from Talk Coffee for supply, even though he was on holiday *;)

    Someone just needs to invent a rock magnet.

    Btw metal in the grinder sounds really bad. I found this out just last week. High pitched scream like someone stabbing a pig. Fortunately it didnt get into the finer part of the burrs and do any damage.

    Not sure what youre implying, but for me its more about function and this meets my needs. Conical with electronic dosing is the path Ive wanted to go down and now the journey begins. So far, very good *:)

    The Kony has a chrome band on the top section Unlike my Major and other Mazzers

    Any time Javabean...Its amazing what can be achieved from 14,000k away with the use of technology 8-)

    Glad youre happy with the Kony-e. I believe that theyre massively underrated by some of the rock stars. I like them enough that I have ordered another one ;)

    ;D ;D ;D ;D No decaf at my place. Guess Im one of the lucky ones that isnt affected by caffeine.

    Keep any eye out on the Coffee Hardware For Sale section for those interested ::)

    Id have to agree Mal. Im finding the grinder to be very consistent from shot to shot and much more defined flavors in the cup.

    The timed doser is behaving with accuracy, assuming you have sufficient beans in the hopper. It varies by 1 gram on the last dose that is in the hopper ie At the current grind setting, Im getting 22g in 10.30 sec with 2 or more doses in the hopper. The dose drops to 21g when there is only 1 dose left in the hopper. Guess 1g is staying in the chute/grinder.

    Still getting great shots today. More acidity and less fruit as I have moved onto a different batch of the same bean that is only 3 days old. Yesterdays were so yummy 300g were consumed between me and a friend ;D

    Funny how Ive yet to get a bad shot that isnt drinkable using the Kony. There is no bitterness to be tasted at all if you have quality roasted beans :)

    Ill keep updating this thread when I can and give some sort of review down the track seeing as I cant find much info here for the Kony. Stay tuned as Ive heard the break in period is around 100 shots. Im about 25% of the way there *;D

    Will certainly look forward to your ongoing impressions mate but Im already sold on the prospect of grabbing one..... Still good to read about your experience with the beastie though ;D
