Eureka Olympus 75 E High Speed Grinder in Chrome
The mythically high speed Eureka Olympus 75 E has 75 mm flat burrs backed up by an 800 watt motor for shots in under three seconds. It features micrometric stepless adjustment, and programmable single and double shot buttons, which accurately dose within 1/10th of a second.
Owning the Eureka Olympus 75 E
The Olympus 75 E wasn’t named after the tallest mountain in Greece solely based on its sheer scale: its 75mm hardened steel flat burrs and high-speed grind dispersion technology deliver a lightning speed grind time of 2.4 seconds per double shot, as if it was pulled by the Olympian god Zeus himself. Eureka, ever the innovators, equipped the Olympus with their patented Stepless Micrometric Regulation System, which allows for an infinite play between the burrs. The adjustment knob glides easily between coarse and fine adjustments for the occasional pour over or the like, though, frequent changes between brew methods would not be ideal. The Olympus truly shines in the espresso realm, especially given the single and double shot timed dosing controls, which can be programmed to dispense grounds on demand for even easier operation. Similar to the Zenith and Atom grinders from Eureka, the Olympus features super intuitive controls. No need to navigate a menu, instead, simply select the dose you want to change, and press the plus or minus buttons until you reach the desired amount of coffee. Otherwise, you can always grind manually. For shots of mythological proportion, look no further than the Eureka Olympus 75 E.
Eureka has a high attention to detail and innovation when it comes to their grinders, and the Olympus is no different. It’s as beautiful as it is functional. It features an anti-static and anti-clumping device, that eliminates electrostatic from the grounds, turning them as fluffy as they are consistent. The portaholder can be fitted to any portafilter with a small adjustment, and, to ensure those fluffy grounds always dispense into the center of your basket, you can adjust the coffee chute itself. Perhaps our favorite feature is the burr design. The bottom burr, rather than the top, responds to the micrometric adjustment knob. Meaning, you can remove the top burr for cleaning without affecting the grind setting. So, you can clean those burrs and keep on grinding without a moment’s pause. For a high-demand shop or entertainer’s kitchen, you’ve set your sights on the right match. If you’re in the market for an even higher capacity grinder, take a look at the Drogheria MCD4; for the same programmability and control in a smaller package, the Zenith 65 E, or Atom might be a better fit.
Programmable Timed Grinding
Grinding times on the Olympus can be programmed for both single and double shots with dedicated buttons for each. You can specify times within 1/10 of a second with counters on the main display for how many times you have prepared a single or a double shot. For one-time dispensing, or if you need a little extra, the manual mode allows you to grind on a whim.
Stepless Micrometric Adjustment
Patented by Eureka, the Stepless Micrometric Regulation System controls grind adjustment without the use of steps or stop points, for infinite options. This system is based on lower burr repositioning, meaning you don’t lose your settings when performing maintenance on the grinder. Using the adjustment knob, you can refine the grind with a tiny twist.
High Speed Grinding
The 800 W motor allows for high speeds of 1400 RPM, for a quick and easy grind every time. The Olympus is perfect for making a quality coffee when you're entertaining lots of guests or if you need a workhorse for a busy cafe.
Adjustable Coffee Chute
The Olympus’ coffee chute can be adjusted in conjunction with its portaholder to ensure that grounds are always flowing directly into the middle of any portafilter. An integrated light illuminates those fluffy grounds as they flow out of the shoot and into the basket.
