ECM? Looks ugly as hell...hope it performs better.
::) Just needs the dregs tray to make the proportions right and it will look great. Ill post some real pix later in the week...
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 will be revealed once Ive had a good play with it....
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.
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.
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.
380H x 135W x 170D
Motor 300W with 100W output
Noise level <60dB(A)
50mm flat blade
Removable hopper with slide
Dregs tray (not shown)...
They are on sale now at $595 with complimentary delivery until 11 May....
Hey Chris, is 5kg the weight of the unit?
yes TG- I have updated my earlier post with a little more info...
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 :)
Isnt it a tad higher in price than a Rocky?
Why did you say replaced?
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.Originally Posted by Thundergod link=1176798866/0#14 date=1176968008
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.. ;)
Got it. ;)Originally Posted by 2muchcoffeeman link=1176798866/15#15 date=1176968738
The photo doesnt show the chute with an open top. It is merely reflecting the collar of the grinder.Originally Posted by 2muchcoffeeman link=1176798866/0#10 date=1176940469
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.
