Eureka - Olympus KR-E Conical (Black)
The Eureka Olympus KR-E grinder is a serious grinder across build, speed and grind quality - offering fantastic value for money. It's a high end conical burr grinder that is all about speed and work flow.
How fast is it?
It can grind 4-5 grams per second, so for an average double shot of say 18g, you are looking at a very fast time of around 3.2 seconds. It has excellent distribution and is extremely quiet. In short, it's very fast even compared to many other much more expensive models / brands out there.
It's got a very easy to use control panel consisting of two program buttons, which you can program any time setting too, by pressing the plus/minus buttons to increase/decrease the grind time. These are commonly set up to hold single & double shots. It also has a feature to activate manual / continuous mode, plus a clever 'lock' feature if you wish to stop anyone altering the settings on shift.
It's Eureka patented micro-metric grind adjustment design is about as good as it gets in the industry. The dial is well positioned to make it easy to access and adjust grind settings without being a headache.
Who's it for?
It's perfect for those serving high volume coffee, between 150-350 coffees per day. It's conical burrs are geared for speed and deliver a quality grind in high volume environments without dropping in quality.
We place this grinder at our commercial mid level, between the Eureka Zenith 65E HS (low) and Victoria Arduino - Mythos One (high).
What are the options?
It comes in Matt Black or White finishes, plus a choice of standard (1.6KG) or short (300g) hopper*. *Special order.
Eureka may not have the profile of Mazzer or Simonelli, but it delivers way above its price point suggests.
Other key features include:
- Dose counter
- Adjustable chute
- Spotlight on filter holder
Eureka has been pioneering micrometric stepless adjustment since 1975. Compared to traditional adjustment where the whole top collar is rotated, the micrometric adjustment knob allows much smaller adjustments to be made and has smooth, fluid feel. It is this very adjustment patent that you now see on grinders such as the Mythos One.
This design can’t get clogged and seized with coffee grounds. Further, the Olympus can be opened for routine cleaning without affecting your grind setting (so no need to recalibrate your grind).
Eureka grinders come with a standard 1 year back to base parts only warranty. *See our terms and conditions for further information
