If you are looking for a grinder to handle the demanding grinding needs of your coffee bar, then the Mahlkonig K30 Vario espresso grinder is the perfect solution. The K30 possesses a large 65 mm diameter hardened stainless-steel burr rotating at a slow speed of about 1600 rpm. This combination means that a large volume of coffee (3.6 - 4.8 grams of coffee per second) can be ground while preventing excess generation of heat to prolong the life of the burrs and reduce the degradation of coffee aromas. Essentially, the K30 can grind a single shot of coffee in less than 2 seconds.
The Mahlkonig K30 Vario is operated on-demand, meaning that you only grind as much coffee as you need, when you need it. Furthermore, each grinder has single or double shot selection and all the barista has to do is select the shot size, put the portafilter under the dispenser, and the grinder will grind the exact amount of coffee required according to the selected shot size. The grinder can be operated hands-free, and the grinding is initiated by a push-button activated by inserting the portafilter handle. The single and double shot sizes can be programmed to your specific needs and each grinder is controlled by an electronic timer, resulting in consistent results which is so important in ensuring that customers come back again and again.
The grinder features a whopping 1500 gram bean hopper, reducing the hassle of constantly refilling coffee beans. An easy to adjust, stepless grind adjustment mechanism increases grinding precision so you can calibrate the grind fineness to your specific needs. Electronic shot counters for each grinder lets you know how much coffee has been ground by each burr, so you have a better idea of when you need to replace the burr.
If you know the importance of having a high performing grinder, the Mahlkonig K30 Vario will be the best investment you will make. It will grind coffee to the highest quality available, yet it is flexible enough to be tailored to your specific needs. If you are serious about getting the most out of your coffee business, you won't be disappointed with purchasing this grinder.
