The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The EK43 offers an even grind from very fine (nearly espresso) up to very coarse for cold brew without overheating. This grinder is ideal for shops and restaurants that serve a lot of filter coffee or small to medium-sized roasteries offering pre-ground coffee. You can grind 3 lbs of coffee in about a minute. The EK43 is high quality and fast. It features step-less grind adjustment for precision.

In my experience, it's not the quietest model, and the static build-up can be a bit messy. I love that the motor stays cool, thus protecting the integrity of your coffee.

The flat Burrs provide consistent and even grind particles for the best extraction.

Overall, this is a great grinder for new cafés or if you're looking to level up your filter coffee. We have been using it in our roastery for 3 years, and it's still going strong, grinding between 50 and 100lbs of coffee a week.

Ideal for
  • Cafés
  • Pour over to cold brew
  • High Volume Use
Not ideal for
  • Static build up can be pretty messy
  • No the best for Espresso

Michael should be your go-to-person for all espresso needs! He is very approachable and provides great advice, anywhere from what type of beans to use to which espresso machine is best for your specific wants and needs. I was having a hard time narrowing down which espresso machine to buy for my fiancé for Christmas and after 1 conversation with Michael, he was able to identify the perfect machine. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire process, even made sure the machine was delivered. Can’t wait to surprise my fiancé with this gift and for him to be shocked with all the espresso knowledge I learned from Michael!

I didn't realize what curated was when I happened upon it at 11 at night one day. I was matched with James who immediately made me a video describing the differences between a couple grinders, and helped me make a decision. I found another grinder on sale and he price matched it for me instantly. So grateful for the help, and so grateful I could come back to make my purchase through curated. 10/10 experience. James was so kind and helpful:)

I've been looking at Brevilla espresso machines for a few years but they are so expensive. I tried researching myself to read about the differences in machines to no avail. I even tried contacting Breville multiple times to learn about the differences in machines so that I can choose which machine would work best for me. Thank goodness I googled "How to choose an espresso machine" and the curated site came up. I had never heard of Curated. I got a coffee angel expert Matthew online. Oh my goodness - he educated me so much on the espresso machine, the processes, bean grinding. He followed up with me multiple times. When he contacted me today I immediately placed an order for 2 machines: 1 for me and 1 for a gift. Never would I have made these purchases if not for Matthew. Now I know about curated - I will reach out when I need help. AMAZING service and EXPERT ADVICE!!!! Thanks Matthew!!!!!!
