Owning the Eureka Olympus 75 E High Speed Espresso Grinder
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.
Features and Performance
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.
Why You Should Get It
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.
