Last night I headed over to Kafatek's site to re-read the details of the MC5 and see if any information was available about the next pre-order window. To my surprise, one MC5 was available for pre-order. I quickly put it in the cart and ordered it immediately. A flat max is still available for pre-order as I write this.

Just curious, does this happen from time to time, if someone backs out on an order? I have no idea why those pre-orders were mysteriously available.

Denis announced limited pre-order availability a couple of months ago (Oct. 17th). It was a quiet announcement. His words:
So we decided to offer some grinders in rolling orders manner so something is available all the time in the store for people that can wait. I think it might lead to more pleasant customer experience.

Just this week I installed the Shurikone burrs in my Kafatek MC3 which will be in all future deliveries of his conical grinders. They are a big (dare I say huge) improvement over the Mazzer Robur burrs he use to use.

That's good to hear, and seems to be the consensus view among people who have switched.

Thanks, that answers my question. I noticed that another MC5 became available for pre-order a day after I ordered the last one.

I added a chapter to my blog about them. The tldr; With no other change than the burrs, and I had been using the same coffee for I had been pulling for about six or seven days, after dialing in the grind, after first a choke, and then a gusher which may have been a Guinness Book of Records mess, for the third shot I immediately sensed a richer, smoother flavor and more body.
