Mike - It sure looks like it! Not surprising since the Flat is the EK's closest competitor so far. With the updated SSP burrs for the Flat installed, I feel the gap between the two is starting to shrink*.
*For espresso only.
Have you tried Flat/SSP for pourover or drip yet? Turn speed down to 300 for that. I was surprised how good the grinder is for nonespresso even with Mythos Burrs. BobM likes it with SSP equally to his EK, which he subsequently sold. We all think MAX or aligned EK with SSP burrs will be best for nonespresso applications. Other than speed, there should be only subtle difference from those to a Flat/SSP combination.
