The Mahlkönig K30: consistent reliability, custom look

Posted on 4 Nov, 2014 in Hemro Group, Mahlkönig Italia, news, news (english), TriestEspresso Expo 2014

The Mahlkönig K30 on-demand grinder immediately brings to mind the WCE (World Coffee Events) organised by SCAE. Mahlkönig is the official sponsor since 2008 and the ‘barista’ world follows and participates in this event with interest.

The K30, which was presented for the first time in 2004, was the first real professional instant grinder intended for the hotel and catering industry; today, it is a benchmark for those who strive for excellence. The high level of reliability, the materials and the cutting-edge technology features make it “the grinder of champions”, proudly placed alongside the espresso machine to mark the importance of the grinding process in ensuring that the product is of a high standard once it has been brewed.

Its mills have a particular cut which ensures a perfect particle size every time, with no overly large or small particles that could have a negative effect on the final result in the cup.

The K30 is immediately recognisable thanks to its distinctive rounded design, winner of the Red Dot Design Award. Now more than ever it can truly blend in with its surroundings, thanks to its customisable body based on the specific needs of the individual barista.

A business logo, a pattern, the barista’s photo, a personalised colour: every wish becomes a reality printed on the surface of the K30 grinder, making each piece one of a kind.

Its features are also remarkable:

-    the dosage is electronically regulated on a timer that sets itself with maximum precision;

-    the grinding time for a 7-gram single espresso is less than two seconds;

-    the coffee grinder starts automatically when the filter holder is inserted, and can be used hands-free;

-    the grinding is micrometrically regulated.E notevoli sono le sue prestazioni.
