Elektra MSD Espresso Coffee Grinder

Elektra MSD On Demand Espresso Coffee Grinder has stepless adjustment grinding of beans through the doserless chute. Available in 3 finishes.

adjustment

Grinding adjustment

  • Stepless – In detail, this gives an infinite number of grind settings which allows you really fine-tune your grind fineness. The adjustment knob is located on the back of the grinder The entire dial is numbered so you can remember your current grind setting easier. Turn clockwise for a finer grind and counterclockwise for a coarser grind.
Elektra-MSD-burrs

Grinding burrs

  • Flat burrs –  As can be seen, it comes with 50 mm size, which is a great size for home use grinding.
  • High rpm – This grinder has a faster spinning rate at 1600 rpm. The higher the speed, the faster the production, due to this it can increase efficiency and reduce wait times.
Elektra-MSD-programmable

On demand dosing

  • Programmable – To point out, the programing dial is located near the bottom right of the base. The higher the number, the longer the grind time.
Elektra-MSD-fork

Portafilter fork

  • Adjustable – To clarify, the fork can slide up or down to accommodate most portafilters.
Elektra-MSD-hopper

Bean hopper

  • Tinted – The bean hopper is tinted with the result that it helps to avoid pre-mature deterioration of beans from light sources (such as sunlight).
  • Lid – Metal lid. Beautifully accents this already beautiful grinder.
  • Stopper – A door near the bottom of the hopper can be pushed in to close the opening. For this purpose, it allows you to remove the hopper with beans inside so you can easily change the beans. There will be some beans already in the burrs which will have to grind out first before removing the hopper.
Elektra-MSD-tray

Grinds catch tray

  • Removable: The tray locks onto the front foot of the grinder. As a result, it prevents it from sliding away when the grinder is operating.
Notes

Espresso Coffee Grinder Warnings:

  • Changing grind settings: It is very important to only change grind settings when the unit is powered on and the burrs are in motion. If you do not do this, the burrs will ‘gunk’ up and render the grinder to only produce very coarse grinds or no grinds at all. To remedy this, you will have to open up the grinder to get access to the grinding burrs. This issue will be considered operator error for lack of following directions, and not be classified as a defective grinder.
  • Electrical cord: For most grinders, the cord is placed between the packaging (foam or cardboard) and the underside body of the grinder. During shipping, it is normal for a bend or insignificant blemish/slice to damage the cord.
  • Finding coffee grinds in a new grinder: Most manufacturers test their grinders with coffee beans before they leave their facility. Unfortunately, they are not always able to get every trace of coffee out of the grinders after testing. As a result, you may find coffee beans or grinds inside your grinder, or there may be grinds in the packaging.
  • Static issues: There are static issues with all grinders, even the highest-quality models. We firmly believe that the static comes from the coffee beans. If you are having static problems with your coffee grinder, try using a different blend of beans.
  • Electrical: To avoid electrical damage (which is not considered a manufacturer’s defect), please acquire and install a single-outlet surge suppressor rated at 1080 joules or higher. A surge without protection can damage a grinder at the power switch, the capacitor, the motor, or the wiring.
  • Burr cleaning: For routine maintenance of the grinding burrs, we recommend using grinder cleaning agents. We do not recommend any removal of the burrs or the burr carrier for cleaning (unless necessary) as re-assembly can cause damage.
  • Replacing burrs: NEVER use a flathead screwdriver and hammer to wedge under the burrs for removal. This could badly damage your grinder.

  • Grinder not running? If the grinder motor does not run when pressing in the front switch under the chute, please make sure the grinder is powered on. If the power switch is pressed in, please make sure the cord is plugged into the unit and the wall. Please double check the outlet for power with another appliance. Lastly, take the grinder adjustment out 2 full settings coarser and then test. If the setting is too fine, the burrs can lock up and the grinder will not power on.
  • Adjustable fork: 4mm metric Hex key screw not included for adjustment.
  • Holding pin: Contrary to the manual included with this grinder, Elektra no longer includes the holding pin in this stepless, worm gear adjustment grinder as the older version had a stepped adjustment that required the holding pin. The hole still exists for the pin on the body.
  • Blue lens light: Although there is a blue lens to fill in a hole near the chute, Elektra had their supplier not put a working bulb under the blue lens.

      We do ship to Alaska. Unfortunately, we do not have an ETA as all manufacturers in Europe are having a difficult time sourcing parts.

      Hi,

      Here is a link to the part: c247002

    6. I was wondering if you had ever disassembled or serviced an Elektra MS grinder. I took apart to check the burrs (i need new ones so I will order!). I took off the lower burr holder (tight press fit). Cleaned it all up, and pushed it back on. I notice there is a hole and there was a groove on the motor shaft almost like a spring pin or something goes in the hole, but I must have lost it during disassembly. The hole is size of toothpick between the motor shaft and the brass burr holder. Do you have the spring or whatever that goes in that hole or does nothing go in the hole?

      The new version has an open hole. This hole was on the older models that had stepped settings. Hence, if yours is stepless, then the hole remains empty.

    8. Did you receive my question about my grinder and the need to shake it around to get it to grind?

      Sorry, this is the first we seen it. Some beans will stick on the hopper, especially if they are oily. Oily beans cause this on a lot of European espresso coffee grinders as they are designed originally for the European market which does not use very oily roast profiles. Otherwise, the beans can also be larger than usual to cause this problem.

      4mm Metric Hex key. Counterclockwise to loosen and clockwise to tighten. We suggest not removing the Hex screw completely as the holding nut inside may fall to the inside of the bottom base.

      Sorry for the delay. Elektra stated there was no light by the chute on their home model grinder.
