In the world of coffee, some names need no introduction. The Mahlkönig EK 43, known simply as the EK, has been the undisputed champion of high-end cafes worldwide for the past decade. But hold onto your coffee cups, because there's a new contender in town – the Mahlkönig EK Omnia. This latest addition to the EK line takes the iconic grinder to a new level with automation and cutting-edge technology. If you're a cafe owner or coffee roaster still relying on the EK 43, it's time to discover how the EK Omnia can elevate your coffee game.
The Mahlkönig EK 43 has long been revered for its immense 98mm cast steel flat burrs and its unparalleled grinding precision. It's a true workhorse, delivering consistent results cup after cup. But now, with the introduction of the EK Omnia, Mahlkönig is adding a new dimension to an already iconic machine. This modern reimagining of the classic grinder brings automation and digitization into the mix, propelling it squarely into the 21st century.
Three Grinding Modes: The Omnia offers three distinct grinding modes. The "Classic" mode allows for manual operation, perfect for those who prefer a hands-on approach. The "Time" mode is akin to time-based dosing, a familiar feature in other Mahlkönig espresso grinders. The real game-changer is the "Library" mode, which consists of 10 programmable settings. Thanks to the innovative pre-dosing hopper, this mode enables you to save your preferred grind size and select the exact amount using volumetric dosing.
User-Friendly Touchscreen: Say goodbye to traditional dials – the Omnia features a front-facing LED touchscreen. This intuitive interface allows you to switch between different modes and easily make micron-level adjustments, ensuring precision in every grind.
Connectivity: The Omnia is not just a grinder; it's a smart grinder. With built-in WiFi, you can access the grinder remotely, share data, and receive updates, keeping you on the cutting edge of coffee technology.
Versatile Design: The grinder also has an adjustable magnetic portafilter holder and a magnetic drip tray for convenience. An LED-illuminated start/stop button adds a touch of modern flair.
Coffee Quality Elevated
According to Dr. Marcel Lehmann, CEO of Hemro Group, "The launch of the EK Omnia continues Mahlkönig's legacy of pushing coffee grinding technology forward via innovation. The EK Omnia's groundbreaking features all unlock limitless barista and coffee quality potential. We are incredibly excited about this launch as we feel it marks a pivotal moment for both Mahlkönig and the coffee industry as a whole."
The EK Omnia is more than just a grinder; it's a tool that empowers baristas to explore new dimensions of flavour and consistency in coffee preparation.

With Library Mode, you can save your favourite grinding recipes and let the machine take care of the rest, ensuring repeatable consistency across hours and shifts.

Its efficient design, featuring a volumetric pre-dosing hopper unit, magnetic adjustable portafilter holder, and a high-performance BLDC motor, makes it ideal for high-volume environments. With 98mm steel burrs, the EK Omnia ensures uniformity with every dose.
