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.

Features & Functionality of the Mahlkonig K30 Vario Grinder

  • High Capacity: The Mahlkonig K30 Vario has a huge bean hopper (3.3 pounds!!), and is one of the fastest grinders we have ever used, able to grind a single shot quantity of espresso beans in under two seconds.
  • 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 dialed in for your machine.
  • 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.
  • Intuitive:This grinder might be a robot from the future, but it still focuses on ease of use. With a press of the your portafilter against the power switch, this grinder will produce any quantity you need.
  • 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 air tight, or as close to air tight as possible, to ensure maximum freshness.
Pros
  • Professional - The K30 Vario is capable of any espresso grind setting you could ever dream of, with nothing short of consistent, professional grinds falling into your portafilter basket
  • From The Future - This grinder is as much of a personal computer as it is an espresso grinder, with programming, an illuminated display and digital timers all included features
  • Precise - This grinder takes a lot of the variables out of grinding espresso, both with quantity, texture and quality of grind
Cons
  • Too Much Machine? - This is a commercial quality grinder with superior grind quality and output. Before investing for home use make sure these features are worth the price tag.
  • Heavy - The K30 Vario is quite a bit heavier than even some small espresso machines, making it harder to easily move around if need be

A shopper asked: In the video, I noticed that the gauge was set close to zero (fine) and yet the coffee came out too fast. If I am interested in expresso coffee only, should I avoid the Mahkonig K30 that focuses on everything from french press, drip to expresso. Is there more choice of fine selections in a Mazzer MIni type A doserless? Aug 6, 2013

Daniel L: I use the Mahlkonig K30 Vario strictly for espresso, paired with the Izzo Alex Duetto 3. The grinder is very fast and eerily quiet at grinding coffee regardless of the setting for how fine or coarse. To give you an idea, grind setting at 0.5, programmed for 3.7 seconds on double, I get roughly 18.5 grams. Grinds are fluffy, uniform without much clumping even when ground much finer than needed to pull a shot with ideal flow rate / extraction parameters. I highly recommend the K30 and can definitely say that you will not be disappointed with its performance, build quality and ease of use. Sep 15, 2013

Steve D: I bought mine for a full time coffee shop and plan on using it for espresso ONLY. This is a top of the line grinder that should be adaptable to any use you have for it but it is designed primarily for espresso. I also have the Mazzer mini which sits next to it which I only use for decaf. Both grinders have an equal number of settings for fineness. Hope that helps! Oct 3, 2013

Thomas R: Not sure what you saw on the video. I actually replaced my Mazzer Mini Type A with the Mahlkonig K30. The Mahlkonig K30 is far more consistent, faster and much easier to change the grind setting. I am far from being at the finest setting. It was one of the grinders used at the Chicago Coffee Fest espresso competition. Couldn't be happier. Aug 7, 2013
