    Mazzer Kony E First Impressions

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have just purchased a mint Mazzer Kony E as an upgrade to my Mazzer Jolly which I use in conjunction with a VBM Domobar Super. The difference to my palate is significant with many rewarding complex nuances coming through.

    In audio terms the Jolly produces a smooth bass/ midrange and soft treble. It is easy to live with!
    In comparison the Kony produces a full spectrum of “sound” (taste sensations) with a fresh insight into highlight detail.

    While I have produced many good brews this is the first time I have produced a “heavenly” brew.
    Now I understand why conical grinders have a strong following on this site!

    Are the kony all 415v ?

    Quick look on coffee parts shows 110v 240v and 415v. So...no.

    Has been a couple of the 3 phase ones at auction. Wasnt sure if it would be worth converting one...depends on the purchase price of course.

    Can’t imagine why anyone would use a 3 phase coffee Grinder - except in a 3 phase workshop situation with no single phase power........

    You could convert one of these 3 phase machines with a small 3 phase mains inverter and if you could then dial in variable soft start/stop times to create a unique grinding profiles (!)

    It sounds like both an aural and oral delight and no doubt strong visual appeal also. The Kony is huge and the Robur is huger.

    I bought a brand new Kony and Robur Automatics in a sale and sold the Kony. It was a hard decision though as they both are amazing machines.

    Overengineered yes of course, in both cases, but anyone who owns either tends to take the approach to losing them with the 'out of my cold dead hands'...I think that guy from Ben Hur in his dressing gown said that on TV once.

    The Robur is not on long enough to appreciate the full musical rendition but it is probably similar to yours although maybe an octave lower.

    I imagine the Kony is like the Robur in it's consistency which is what I notice most. The settings only get touched when the coffee changes a batch.

    Perhaps a blend with varying percentages of the same bean processed in each grinder would bring the whole concept together.
