    !!!SOLD!!! - FS: Ditting KR805 & Malhkonig Guatemala grinders

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have an addiction to grinders, takes a lot to admit!

    Selling 2.

    Ditting KR805 - $1250

    No more than 20kg through it. 2012 mfg.
    Cosmetically fantastic. Few scratches on shaker plate.
    No grinds tray but comes with TWO hoppers. One is brand new, the other is quite used from an older grinder. (The new one has the new cool translucent plastic design, the old one is dark gray).
    Same as the KR804 except it has magnetic burrs so there's no screws. I believe this results in fewer fines, which results in a cleaner taste in the cup.
    Excellent burrs, see pic for condition. Clean and never had flavoured coffee through it.

    Mahlkonig Guatemala K22S - $1350

    Could be considered NOS/vintage, bought from a cafe that went out of business early 2000s and basically never used it - it spent most of its life in storage.
    Built like a tank. It is in mint condition except the hopper has some streaking and clouding due to age of plastic.
    See pics, burrs also in excellent condition. Clean and never had flavoured coffee through it.
    Produces a really balanced/full bodied cup, with more subtle clarity on top. Personally, I prefer this to the ditting. Maybe even to an EK.

    They've made me some super enjoyable home brews but space is an issue

    For sale till 6th DEC after which I won't be in the country. Hit me up

    PM sent. Love the retro look of the Guatamala. What a lovey machine.

    If you're willing to pay pack/n/send fees I will ship. It's very heavy and I don't have the expertise to pack something so heavy it could rip itself in two

    Re: espresso grind, I couldn't tell you first hand as I don't make espresso. But as far as I know all experiences and tests on the dittings (804 and 805) you can read on forums say they're excellent espresso grinders, with some of the highest particle size distribution consistency. (One guy says the consistency is even higher than an EK... unclear with old or new burrs though)
