Hi!

Have a question, hope someone knows the answer. Google didnt ;-p

I can buy a k30 ES for 400 euro, thats cheap, I think. With 2 year warranty - so its pretty new. But its to high. The room where I have my setup in the kitchen is to low. So I searched for single dose hopper - dont need 1,5kg of hopper room at home, for a cup or two a day .
But cant find any. I do find for the EK43 - and in Malkonig own website they sell normal hoppers for EK43/K30 ES. So they use the same hopper. Will the single dose after marked for EK43 fit the K30?

Most of them I see with a quick search would work. I have both a K30 and an EK43 and I can interchange the hoppers.

The normal hopper removal is just a twist out, maybe 1/4 turn. The only way I can think of that a hopper made for the EK wouldn't work on the K30 would be if it somehow replaced the whole assembly that the hopper screws into.

When I had a K-30 I first used the mini hopper sold separately from the large commercial sized one. Later on I used the Lynn Weber Blind shaker that came with my HG1. Fits perfectly. When I sold the grinder, the purchaser talked me into giving him the shaker as it worked better than either of the standard hoppers.

What you want is Mahlkonig short hopper part number 703754. Mahlkonig's description of this is: "This would be an optional smaller hopper that would fit K30ES/ K30 Vario/ K30 Air/ EK43 and EKK43 model grinders. Hopper slider built in. Note that the EK43/ EKK43 grinders use an adapter to accommodate these hoppers. Older model EK43 grinders might need the adapter to use this hopper. (replacing #101388)"

If you're into 3D printing, I printed my own low profile hopper. I'd be happy to share the files.
