Are the standard burrs old version or new version after mid 2014? Please refer to this post: Looking for Confirmation on Used EK43 Identity
. My EK43S with new version coffee burrs creates more fines than my Mahlkonig Guatemala does in the pour over range. I also found that with the same extraction yield and brew ratio, the EK43S has less flavor complexity, intensity, and aftertaste than the Guatemala. I have to add 3% extraction yield to get the same flavor complexity and intensity, but it also leads to more over extraction taste. I think the extraction yield from the fines on the EK43S is much more than on the Gutatemala, so I grind coarser to reduce fines and segmented pouring to compensate the extraction yield from the coarser grind. Finally I can barely get about the same quality with the same extraction yield with the EK43S and Guatemala.
The new version coffee burrs are actually espresso burrs. I adjusted the burrs rub point at 0 and pulled shots at 1.3, every 0.1 gap about 5 seconds difference for the 1:2 brew ratio. I think the new coffee burrs and Turkish burrs are not that much differences. https://www.instagram.com/p/BF_kTeaSuLZ/
Since the SSP burrs espresso dial range is bigger than the stock EK43 burrs, I don't think they can produce less fines and better pour over coffee though the particle size distribution looks almost perfect.
I am looking for an old version coffee burrs set although there are not enough information to prove it creates less fines and grinds highly evenly in the pour over range.
