Kafatek Monolith Conical has gone through a major change...

Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.

The sixth iteration of the Kafatek Monolith Conical has dropped the AC motor for a quieter, much longer lasting DC motor, joining with rest of the lineup. Also, it now has variable RPM and laser etched adjustment collar, instead of stickers. To my mind, this simply cannot get any better. :D

Oh, and of course - the Shurikone burrs.

Max2 is also being upgraded except for the Purge button. Upgrades also include new dosing cup and Mr. Puff. Denis has responded to most, if not all, reviewers comments.

Upgrades start with Sept 2023 orders; just in time for my Max2!!!

Hmm, maybe they should have upgraded the name to, "Mahlkonig''. :mrgreen:

The real designator is MC6 even though the introduction thread calls it a Mk6.

Wouldn't calling it a Mahlkonig be considered a downgrade???
:shock: :lol: :mrgreen:

You can add pre-breakers to your MC4 and convert it to an MC5.

Mk is short for Mark...figured most people knew this. Monolith Conical, Mark 6.
