Snapped a picture of a Mahlkonig GUA710 Lab Retail Grinder yesterday while at Pop roastery.

Quick search indicated 71mm flat burrs. I believe arranged vertically.

Anyone try this 18kg beast ? Surprised on the low feedback.

Is that intended for use as a deli grinder?

The roaster mentioned that they use it for cupping.

Just within the 710, there's three versions of it. The plate and "knocker" on this one is designed for clean throughput in a busy cupping lab setting. I couldn't speak to anything too specific, but it's commonly considered the most often chosen grinder for a cupping room. Fast, reliable, repeatable.

I couldn't quite figure out that bottom plate. The knocking ability makes sense now, thanks.

The bottom plate is grounded and holds a stainless catch vessel (I still have the one from my baby blue Guat Lab).
