The EK Omnia exemplifies Mahlkönig’s ongoing commitment to innovation with real-time burr micron distance measurement, auto grind-size adjustment, auto-dosing, and saved grinding recipes that can be replicated around the world consistently.

“The launch of the EK Omnia continues Mahlkönig’s legacy of pushing coffee grinding technology forward via innovation” stated Dr. Marcel Lehmann, CEO of Hemro Groups. “The EK Omnia’s groundbreaking features all unlock limitless barista and coffee quality potential. We are incredibly excited about this launch as we feel it marks a pivotal moment for both Mahlkönig and the coffee industry as a whole.

The EK Omnia represents not just a product, but a leap forward in how coffee professionals can approach their craft. Our team has poured countless hours of research, development, and expertise into creating the EK Omnia, and we believe it will empower baristas to explore new dimensions of flavour and consistency in coffee preparation.

This innovation is not just about making coffee; it’s about unlocking the full potential of every coffee bean, creating experiences that delight customers, and setting new standards for excellence in the industry.

We envision the EK Omnia becoming an essential tool in the hands of baristas, enabling them to craft extraordinary coffee with precision and creativity.

It’s a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of coffee. As we introduce the EK Omnia to the market, we look forward to seeing the impact it will have, the new horizons it will open, and the stories it will help coffee professionals create with every cup. This launch is a celebration of innovation, craftsmanship, and the endless possibilities that coffee can offer. We can’t wait to share it with the world.

“Since the first Mahlkönig products in 1924, we have maintained a position at the forefront of coffee grinder technology through a singular commitment to innovation. Innovation is not a buzzword in our philosophy. Innovation is not a short-term enterprise; it is a comprehensive business approach that demands endless repetition, tireless experimentation, and continuous improvement. Today, the brand continues this legacy with the introduction of the EK Omnia, setting a new standard for efficiency, precision, and consistency,” says the company.

EK 43 stands as the most widely sold premium coffee grinder globally, and since its initial launch in 1990, it has become a coffee industry icon and a stamp of approval for everyone who uses it or sells it.

“Now, the EK Omnia takes our commitment to innovation even further,” continues the company. “Omnia means “everything” or “all things.” It is derived from the Latin word “omnis,” which means “all” or “every.” “Omnia” is often used in contexts where you want to convey the idea of encompassing or including all possible things or elements. We feel EK Omnia is exactly that – the ultimate grinding solution for every coffee professional’s need.

The grinder is equipped with a suite of new features that makes it an indispensable tool for high-demand, high-expectation settings. The new and ground-breaking Library Mode allows baristas to save their favourite grinding recipes (coffee name & beverage weight) that the EK Omnia automatically adjusts to. Or baristas can manually adjust the grind size and dosing time as needed.

A pre-dosing hopper unit adds volumetric dosing, the adjustable magnetic portafilter holder serves as a masterstroke in efficiency, and the front-facing LED screen is a powerful and easy-to-use interface to amongst other features set ultra-precise micro-adjustments of grind size. With the EK Omnia, Mahlkönig sets the new standard for grinder performance and design, again. Welcome to the next era of coffee grinding.

The EK Omnia’s chief innovation is the Library Mode in combination with the Pre-Dosing Unit (PDU), a volumetric hopper. This ground-breaking feature incorporates a volumetric dosing hopper = the pre-dosing unit (PDU)*, and an automatic grind adjustment mechanism, providing users with the power to maintain consistent recipes without the need for constant recalibration. Regardless of who is using the grinder, or the type of coffee being prepared, the same recipe can be saved and effortlessly utilized.

Saved grinding recipes seamlessly integrate volumetric dosing with micron-level grind size settings. The grind size, meticulously measured in real-time by micron distance, eliminates any guesswork or reliance on arbitrary dials. When a recipe is selected, the grinder instantly fine-tunes both the burr distance and pre-dosing unit to precisely match the chosen parameters.

The EK Omnia used in library mode eliminates variations in coffee quality across different locations, ensuring that the same recipe delivers consistent excellence globally. Additionally, the pre-dosing unit removes the need for manual weighing of coffee beans, further streamlining the process and enhancing workflow speed.

No arbitrary dials, no guesswork. When a recipe is selected, the grinder automatically adjusts the burr distance and pre-dosing unit according to the recipe. Berlin, Tokyo, New York—wherever you are, this is industry-leading grinding uniformity that works across shifts, grinders, and continents.

The EK Omnia will become the company’s flagship product, expanding its globally respected lineup of professional coffee grinders including the ever popular EK 43 and further cementing EK’s status as a coffee industry icon.”
