    If I'm single dosing, I either just pour them straight in or use an AeroPress funnel. Btw, just single dosed some #SSSSS and at those settings it came out a little slow (machine pre-infusion rather than manual, I'm getting lazy) but was still very nice. The volumetric doser on mine isn't that accurate, as I usually weigh anyway and either add a few beans from the hopper, or take a bit out until right. It does get pretty close though when set up.



    Oh, and you needn't worry too much about popcorning on the EK, the auger takes care of that. They can blow a little dust around though from the chute.

    Are you saying there’s room for an eeek at your home?

    Default Mahlkonig EK43S. Funnel use instead of hopper

    Well, I had a blind tumbler knock off for few weeks. I bought it to feed my curiosity monster and a tenner wasn’t a bad price to pay. It didn’t work for me as a portafilter funnel at all, but I saw someone mention that it fits in the ek43 collar.

    It was a loose fit with a bit of annoying rattling. I wrapped some self amalgamating tape around to provide a snugger fit. It doesn’t come in contact with beans, so I don’t need to worry about food safety, methinks. I might come up with a better option in the long term.









    A joy to use! Should have went for a black one, though.

    So what is the ID and OD ?. May be able to help with a simple solution.

    I’m alright, thanks Jon! I’ve been using it for few days now and it’s been a joy.

    I can only imagine it would be very tricky to get the diameter exactly right since the table suffers from vibrations when the grinder is turned on. It wasn’t an issue with Niche or Ceado E37s, both of which have more sensible motors for home use!

    The Aeropress cap isn't a snug fit for EK43 S but fits with some help (dish cloth!).. The magnets have been added by my wife, of course.
