    Is there any update on when the EK43 Barista will be available for sale? At 2:40 you mention that the plan was for it to go to market by the end of 2016, which has come and gone. I’m by no means upset about this. I’ve just been holding out for it for a while and want to know if I should keep waiting.

    • European Coffee Trip

      Good question. We don’t have any new information about EK43 neither. We will ask them when we will have a call next time but don’t think we should expect it anytime soon.

      Thanks for your reply, European Coffee Trip! Have you had the opportunity to talk with Mahlkönig or Christian Klatt again? I have heard rumors that a “final production version” of the EK43 Barista will be on display at the Internorga Convention, March 17 – 21, 2017 in Hamburg. But, it’s hard to know if these are true and (even if true) when the EK43 Barista would be available for purchase. If you can find any information on this, it would be deeply appreciated.

    • European Coffee Trip

      Hello there! Unfortunately, we don’t work that close with Mahlkoenig this year and Mr. Klatt left the company by the end of the last year so you may wait for Internorga to see what will be presented there. Fingers crossed!

    Question; Why do they always seem to put screws right on the cutting surface of the burrs? To me it seems like the absolute worst place to put screws in the entire machine.
