Mahlkonig EK43 - Black


Recommended Posts

Purchased new October 2019 (can provide proof of purchase if required).

This is the newest version of the EK43 (metal buttons not the red/green plastic ones, aluminium burr carrier etc). Other than having the burrs aligned it's practically unused (I put about 1kg coffee through after aligning the burrs). It comes with a custom mini hopper not the big original EK one.

It was originally going to be part of home setup as a retirement gift, but due to a change circumstance it's now no longer required.

Any inspection welcome. Collection only (Sheffield).

£1650.

Hi@Khashy
 
It does have the coffee burrs yeah. For a forum member I’d come down to £1600 but that’d be the lowest for now.
 
Thanks
Lee

Thanks Lee, I am obviously keen on the grinder however it is way above what I should really be committing to my hobby given my particular circumstances and £1,500 was honestly pushing the envelope for me.

That said, I have been aching for a grinder upgrade from my SJ and after much research and consulting people much more knowledgeable than I, it seems like an EK43 is the right match for me and where I want to take my coffee journey.

How would you feel about splitting the difference between my offer of £1500 and your suggestion of £1600?

I also have to ask if you’ll be making a trip anywhere towards the south at any point in the near future? The reason I ask is that my very very heavily pregnant wife is very scared of going to labour when I’m not around and the mere thought of it happening when I’m potentially away from north London by some 3-4 hours would absolutely terrify her. So every little would help and I hope this does not come across as me being rude.

Thanks,
Khash.

I'm glad I already have an EK otherwise I'd be getting very twitchy.. The EK43S is a lot more kitchen friendly as well compared to the tower cranes that are their bigger brothers..

Hi, can you confirm if this is the EK43 or EK43S?

Does this cone with the alignment tool?


It’s not the S. I’ll add some pictures later but here’s one I’ve got on my phone.

The alignment tool I’ve borrowed from another forum member. I’m not sure if it was the one donated to the forum or his personally, but it isn’t included in the sale.

Hope that helps.

Hi@Khashy I’ll give the offer some consideration and drop you another reply. I’ve no immediate plan to travel down south but if something comes up that sends me that way I’ll be sure to update you.

Thanks again,
Lee

It appears to be the taller of the two Rhys but with the smaller capacity hopper.

Its a very tempting offer but would dwarf  everything on my coffee corner counter ?.

If this was the S, I would've had this just to give a try. Always wanted one. Just my little coffee corner won't accommodate a standard height even with the small hopper.

Good luck with the sale Lee. Don't thunk it'll be around long.

Thank you very much Lee, I really hope we can work it out - it’ll be coming to a good home for sure.

I looked up courier prices, circa £35, so if you won’t be heading south and would be willing to allow the use of a courier, the transportation should be doable.

Thanks,
Khash.

Same! Always wanted to try one and even though I have a new grinder arriving in February, if this was the S version, I would have snapped it up too.

I commute to Sheffield a lot, I am very interested not sure how the offers work but I am very interested and happy to pay £1600. Is the difference between the 43s and 43 only the height?

Hi@Bigal

It is indeed the only difference. You’re obviously more than welcome to come check it out prior to confirming. I’m just off J31 M1.

Hope that helps,
Lee

I am a student at Sheffield Hallam, I am there every Monday. I could pop then although I don't know Sheffield well are you far from the University? Obviously some pictures would be great and seeing it in person but apart from that i am happy to offer £1600 and can come possibly this Monday or next.
