I have an EK43 with stock burrs at home and this is the amount I grind (I only do filter coffee, so light roasts). Aligned well using Titus alignment tool.
Can anyone say that their pour over / filter brews are heaps better with the SSP over the stock burrs?
Ek43 is rated at 14,300lbs or approximately 6400kg
The burrs are made of really hard steel, so you won't ever ever need to change them.
From what I have tasted so far the ssp burrs dos not deliver a better results in the cup, not even if you had a sub par ek43 coffee burrs. Different yes, better no.
If you grinder is well aligned and still get low ext. yield and poor particle distribution, I would consider it, but if that is not the case and you get plus 84% in the middelfraction 400-1100um with a Kruve then it's not worth it.
With a kruve you might hit 90% at a very, very fine filter grind if it's well aligned and with the right coffee. However you'll get a very fragile cup as a result with redicules high ext. yield. but I'm not sure you'll enjoy it. A less unimodual grind eg. coarser seem to be more desirable with most coffees why many grind at 9'oclock and coarser with ssp burrs.
