Refurbished Mazzer Kony Coffee Grinder
Owning the Mazzer Kony
The Mazzer Kony is a stepless, doser grinder with manual timed grinding functionality. Its large 63mm conical burrs spin at a low speed speed of 500 RPM, which speedily delivers grounds into the doser without heating up the burrs. The extra large hopper can hold just under three pounds of coffee, and the timer dial operation can grind in up to sixty second increments for continual use. The grounds are deposited into a large doser, which can be adjusted to dispense anywhere from 5.5 to 9 grams into your portafilter with a flick of the dosing lever. Just like the Mazzer Royal, the Kony’s doser can dispense up to twelve pre-portioned amounts before needing to be refilled, which it can do automatically, and those grinds can then be easily tamped with the built-in tamper. Both the doser and its built-in tamper are designed with high-volume scenarios in mind, where you want to be able to quickly grind and tamp for several drinks in a row. We think the Mazzer Kony is a ten out of ten, and we definitely recommend.The Mazzer Kony is stepless, meaning it can be adjusted to a virtually infinite degree by turning the collar in small amounts. Although the Kony is capable of producing coarse or fine grinds, in a cafe environment it’s just impractical to use one grinder for both jobs. Best to let the Kony grind the espresso, and get another grinder for drip and the like. The burrs are easy to access for cleaning, and calibrating them afterward is simple, too. If the Kony seems a bit small for use in your cafe, consider the supreme Royal; for home, the Mini or Mini P both feature a doser and small footprint.
