What is the primary difference between the Mahlkönig E65S and E65S GBW?
The GBW vs non-GBW are exactly the same functionally (other than the dosing approach). If you like dosing with a separate scale, the standard E65S should be fine! Otherwise, go with GBW if you want to remove the scale part of your brewing process. The biggest difference we notice with timing is when you jump up burr size significantly (like the E80 Supreme). Grinding time is noticeable reduced. However, with 1-2g/ sec like the two E65S grinders, there is not much there to concern yourself with.
