The distant future, a one in which robots clean your house and make your breakfast, is getting closer every day with the Mahlkonig K30 Vario Grinder. Not only can this grinder give you a single quality shot of espresso in two seconds, it can do it with professional consistency that other less evolved grinders can only aspire to. This grinder will fulfill every coffee scientist's dream, with intuitive programming, easy adjustments, electronic shot counters...the list goes on.
Features and Functionality
High Capacity: The Mahlkonig K30 Vario has a huge bean hopper (1.5 KG / 3.3 LBS), and is one of the fastest grinders we have ever used, able to grind a single shot quantity of espresso beans at 3.8-4.8 grams per second.
Technologically Advanced: Programming this grinder takes another variable out of the picture when brewing espresso, making it even easier to achieve the consistently perfect shot once you get the K30 dialled in for your machine.
Intuitive: This grinder might be a robot from the future, but it still focuses on ease of use. With a press of your portafilter against the power switch, this grinder will produce any quantity you need.
Precision, Precision, Precision: Don't sit there and worry about how consistent the grinds will be that come out of this machine, it can handle most settings with ease, which won't leave you guessing if your grind consistency is an issue.
Large Hopper: Definitely big enough that you won't need to be filling beans every day. However, we do recommend keeping your whole beans stored airtight, or as close to airtight as possible, to ensure maximum freshness.
