    ECM KS doserless grinder...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Compact, sexy (high polish chrome), grind on demand and at a very good price!

    Ill have one on the bench to play with this week as my new cupping grinder...I suspect that this will give the Rocky and K3T a run....

    im curious about the dozing chute, is that hole in the top to make cleaning easier? how does it compare to other chutes on the market? ie mess etc. it looks longer then others so hopefully it would direct more grounds to the portafilter.

    All I see is a small box with a red x on it.

    The photo hosting server must have run out of bandwidth.

    I can see it fine now! *Photo hosting server must be back online.

    Im guessing it is the yet-to-be-released ECM Best doserless.

    Looks great!

    ECM KS doserless grinder

    I received my demo model this morning...

    Initially, build quality looks great with particularly nice finish of the fork and grind on demand hardware. I reckon the fork is too close to the p/f as shipped but 2 self-tappers attach it. Pre-drilled holes in the fork allowed me to drop it by 5mm or so....Perfect! Exposed edges at the top of the spout/chute a fraction rough. The chute is not open at top unlike the supplied graphic.

    The hopper is removable with a slide to retain beans as per ECM Best and the stepped adjustment has small steps. The slide could be better finished. Dregs tray is broadly "U" shaped without cutouts for the feet. I have ditched mine in favour of my rubber tamping mat.

    Its quiet and sounds "pro" in operation. Definitely quieter than the K3T, Mazzer mini and on par with Macap M5. There is a little clumping and little/no observable static. Its also much, much cleaner in operation than a Rocky.

    Specs:
    380H x 135W x 170D
    Motor 300W with 100W output
    Noise level <60dB(A)
    50mm flat blade
    5 kg
    Removable hopper with slide
    Dregs tray (not shown)...

    They are on sale now at $595 with complimentary delivery until 11 May....

    I have pulled about 10 shots now and am happy to give this grinder a thumbs up- it really is quiet and the grind consistency is great- as per Best doser grinder. Throughput is about the same as a Mazzer mini.....Overall, not bad and a whole lot better looking than the Rocky which its replaced :)

    Re: ECM KS doserless grinder...

    Yes TG- its more expensive. As I am led to understand, Anfim (the manufacturer) produces motors and other bits for Mazzer- so yes, its more expensive but should be long lived.

    Its replaced my Rocky...so I have my trusty mazzer mini doser as my #1 grinder and the KS as a cupping/plunger/travel grinder.. ;)

    The photo doesnt show the chute with an open top. It is merely reflecting the collar of the grinder.

    Im not too sure on that Wushoes.
    That line across the top of the chute looks pretty straight; if it was a reflection of the collar shouldnt it have more of a curve to it?

    I mean just below the collar...the straight edge.
