  1. This is up for preorder now at €1499, €200 off its normal price. Will be interesting to see how this develops, it's a really good looking grinder. http://mahlgut-manufaktur.de/produkt/mahlgut-mola-e/
  2. Text from their blog post - looks interesting! We have already announced it on Instagram and Facebook. There will be a new mill and the MG-1(s) will be discontinued. Here are a few more detailed pieces of information thereto. It was only last year that we announced some improvements to the MG-1. The mill was supposed to be named MG-1s and had been tested for a couple of months as well. The improvements were perfectly appropriate, but, if I were to be honest, we did not really like the MG-1s. It did not “click.” The process of getting the mill off the ground was overall rather sluggish and lengthy and every enhancement felt like a workaround and not like an actual improvement. Less would have been good for the grinder. We experienced the same issue with the motor station. We had already built a couple of prototypes and tested them as well for a longer period, but the sobering result arrived with setting up the motor station’s serial production. In the end, the station was twice as expensive as the actual Handgrinder, among other things, and that would have been incommensurate. We constantly had to accept compromises with both the Grinder and the motor station when we had actually planned to improve the mill and release a sensible add-on. But then a new idea suddenly floated around our heads one day. That was the beginning of MOLA. From the very beginning, everything felt right and good here, almost like a liberation, as we were able to directly incorporate our experiences, which we had gathered in the past, and to build a better grinder all but without compromises and completely without regard to the past. It is for this reason that we will discontinue the Mahlgut-1(s) and, for the time being, development of the motor station. We currently still have various materials for a few MG-1 handgrinder in stock. We will still build these with small improvements (longer crank handle and a needle bearing instead of a nylon ring) and put them up for sale. Furthermore, we would still like to continue to advise and actively support all MG-1 owners and to offer the small update (crank handle and bearing). No one needs to worry. The support continues to be there. First off, we would like to apologize to all MG-1 owners who have shown interest in the motor station and have waited for it for a long time. We simply underestimated the subject and will make a special offer for all existing clients when the time comes. In the course of the mill’s redevelopment, we have chosen a completely different path from the one before. Thanks to a 3D printer, it was possible to test many aspects beforehand without the necessity of milling or lathing parts in a laborious and costly fashion. Our partners were very thankful for this and, thus, the first functioning prototype could be constructed relatively quickly. Taking a model into your hands is quite different from looking at a 3D drawing on the screen. After the first prototype had been built and worked the way we envisioned it to do, we decided to deal with it transparently and to publish some initial pictures / films. We are happy about the copious feedbacks and notes. This is the only way that we can continue to improve ourselves and to offer Mahlgut clients exactly what they want. Finding a name proved to be slightly more challenging. An MG-2 was out of the question. We wanted to conclude and, thus, a new name was needed, especially since we planned for different variations of our grinder. Many name suggestions had to be discarded, as they were already in use elsewhere. Luckily, a good friend thought of Mola , which is derived from Latin and means mill or mill stone, respectively. It sounds good and works on an international level, too. That way, Mola-e (for electrical mill) saw the light of day. A Mola-h (for hand grinder) and a Mola-f (for flat grinding disc) are in planning as well. But those are still things of the future. Technical details about Mola-e Mola-e is 32 cm tall and the base plate, made from German oak, has a width of approx. 28 cm. The grinder weighs approx. 11 kg (without battery), which results from the fact that we manufacture the it predominantly from stainless steel. The grinder is a 68 mm conical grinder which we have used on the MG-1 already. There is an option to get the grinder with a special DLC coating. Why DLC and no TIN and what that is exactly and what it does will be explained by us more specifically in the near future. During Mola’s development, it was very important to us that it does not grind too quickly and that it corresponds to the speed of a hand mill. The ground material should not heat up unnecessarily. The built-in motor thus only rotates with 100 rotations per minute, but can withstand the strain of up to 20 Nm temporarily. Perfect for grinding even blond roastings without issue. The motor’s transmission to the shaft occurs via low-maintenance metal gearwheels, which not only optimally transfer the force, but also run very smoothly. The shaft is doubly mounted and specially protected by means of a guide. No beans and no coffee grounds come into contact with the shaft or the sealed-up ball bearings. Mola draws its power via a lithium polymer battery. That way, the mill may be set up flexibly without the need for a nearby outlet. We have tested the motor in connection with the Lipo-battery for more than one year and were able to grind as much as 5 or 6 kg of coffee even then with a single battery charge over the period of one month. We think it is a great idea to build an electrical mill that does not require an outlet. Most coffee corners do not offer enough space anyway, all the more as the power supply units are mostly very unsightly. Due to the first feedbacks that we received, we do, however, offer a power supply unit as well. That way, everyone is able to decide for themselves if they want to work with a battery or a power supply unit. In general, both options will be possible. We are currently testing two different power supply units worth considering. Naturally, we will report back on this matter once we have gotten further. The grind adjustment is kept very simple. You simply loosen the fixing screw and turn the cylinder in which the outer grinding ring is located. Once you have found the required grinding degree, you simply fasten it once more by means of the fixing screw. We are currently looking for the perfect scale to adjust the grinder as easily as possible and, above all, repeatably. A word in advance: the scale will be milled into the stainless steel, which is not only practical, but also a visual highlight. Due to Mola-e’s size, we were finally able to realize a filter holder which may be adjusted in height and which has a flexible grip cover. Most filter holders fit innately. Those who own a smaller filter holder can reduce the contact area by means of adapter rings. That way, each and every filter holder may be used without issue. Furthermore, the widely popular Blind Tumbler fits into the holder. Enough technical details; it is time to grind. As Mola-e is a so-called single-doser grinder, the desired amount should be weighed out beforehand. Pour in the beans, put in the filter holder, and press the grind button. As soon as the beans are ground, the filter holder may be removed. The result is fluffy ground material, completely free of clots. There are currently still some pending issues before we can go into production. As of now, we will report on each and every change or step here on this blog. Those who have questions about Mola-e or wish to test the prototype had best contact us directly. We are happy about every registered visit in Essen, Germany. We would love to come to an organized meeting in the German-speaking world as well. More pics and videos on their Instagram -
  3. A blog post went up on the Mahlgut website a couple of days back, the guys who run the company both have other pressures on their time, family and other successful businesses. So despite churning out new tampers at quick the click over the past few months the Grist line is down to just the grinder and the PF stand. Hopefully no one was about to buy one of their tampers.

    Mahlgut tamper

    I have one of these original hampers for sale. Used daily but still in fantastic condition as these are built like tanks. Really heavy Bought here for £100 so would sell for the same and would half postage costs
  5. By a stroke of good luck, i've ended up with 2 Mahlgut Palm SL tampers This black 58.6 is surplus to requirements. Purchased on 5th March, it's brand new in its original box and packaging (cost £130 direct from Germany). Will take £110 delivered Cheers
  6. I gotta say, its a whole hell of a lot better looking than their previous level-lock tamper, and also much easier to compare to the PUSH. You'll be paying for the good looks however at about £100.
  7. I've got a small number of the Chinese adjustable tampers - both normal flat tampers, and the 3 wedged distribution device thing. The "Adjustable Flat" tampers are 516.5g in weight, and 58.5mm diameter - I've got a red one, a blue one and a purple one currently - £ 34.50 each plus £4.45 postage (1st Class Signed For) The "Adjustable Distribution" devices are 505.6g in weight, and 58.5mm diameter - again I've got a red one, a blue one and a purple one currently - £ 36.50 plus £4.45 postage (1st Class Signed For) (Combined postage is £6.60 if you wanted both a tamper and distribution thingy together) The coloured part of the tamper/device seems to be anodized aluminium - in the various colours - and the actual tamping/device is polished stainless, and looks very nice. I'm quite surprised at the nice quality and feel to them and both fit the ridgeless VSTs very nicely. The "Adjustable Flat" tamper compares well with the Mahlgut Palm SL (680.5g, 58.55mm) - with a very similar action and mechanism. Any interest before I put them on eBay for a few quid more? A few more pics: Other colours: Blue: Purple:
  8. With too many tampers, and too much pressure from SHMBO I've reluctantly decided to let my beloved Mahlgut Palm SL go to a new home. I've had it for a few weeks, previously having been owned by Jeebsy of this Parish... and it's in perfect condition, with the original box. I've probably used it for less than 30 tamps! It's black, and flat - and as the box states, it's "58.6mm" - though I've measured it at 58.55mm. It fits a ridgeless VST perfectly. Weighing in at 680.5g it certainly has a degree of heft about it, though not as heavy as the original Mahlgut Palm steels, it's appreciably heavier than other similar devices. The quality of engineering and manufacture is exemplary - and it's really very nicely made and detailed, with knurled top section and Mahlgut logo in the top. It'll be £4.45 shipping via Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For - with up to £50 cover. Your choice if you want more cover and are willing to pay a higher price for shipping accordingly. Pics:
  9. Hi, I'm after a Push tamper or palm style tamper like the Mahlgut Buzzer or Palm or a Pullman Palm. Or something along those lines please. I appreciate there is a set of Mahlguts on the sale thread, however this is for a set and doubt he is wanting to split, and following forum rules, I wont ask. Let me know what youve got..............
  10. Mahlgut 'Buzzer' Tamper and 'Dozer' Levelling Tool Initially for sale as a pair: £205 inc UK pp Full spec and current prices can be found HERE The 'Buzzer' is an easily adjustable, collared, palm tamper designed to give repeatable depth and level tamp. All stainless steel 58.4mm dia. FLAT faced Weighing in at a smidge over 1kg, it's satisfying hefty yet so easy to use. The 'Dozer' is an easily adjustable distribution / levelling tool. 58mm dia Both items are very well engineered and in super condition. The only sign of use is the inevitable silver rub-ring on the underside of the adjustment collar of the Dozer.
  11. Looking to get a set of either Acaia pearl or lunar scales that are in perfect condition... ...and also a set of Mahlgut distribution tool and Tamper (58.5mm) (ideally in stained oak finish but would consider others as well at the right price) Thanks
  12. I have been speaking to Mahlgut over the past month or so and they have agreed to send a Grist (Their grinder) over here for review. In addition to having a look at this grinder myself I am hoping to get it as thoroughly looked at as possible by other experienced members here. It is easy to compare this (as it looks so similar) to the Pharos, but considering the price this should realistically be a step above, however this will be an important comparison when it comes to review. Another important comparison is to the HG One, as this sits between the price of the Pharos and HG One it will be interesting to see how it stands up to them both. I can do neither of these comparisons, which is why it is important to me to put it in the hands of people who can. A final review will be written when it has done the rounds including everyones take on it. Considering the above please feel free to PM me if you feel you can add something to the review, the grinder will only be sent to members I feel I can 100% trust as whilst this is in the UK it is my responsibility. Many members are happy to have others over to their homes, so if it is making its way to someone near you and you are thinking of buying then you may well be able to go and see it in action. Lastly I understand there will be a Grind Off Event happening some time in the next few months, I would like this grinder to be there, but I need to communicate the date to Mahlgut, if anyone has any further info on when this might be happening (even a rough idea) if they could shoot me a PM that would be super.
  13. Group Buy Rules: read before posting in this thread: http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?14547-Group-Buy-Rules By participating in this Group Buy all participants agree to release Coffee Forums UK, its Owners, Administrators, Moderators or any other staff of any and all liability and waive all rights I may have under all laws and governing bodies. By posting in this thread you agree you are entering a binding contract between the Organiser and the Participant I've been in contact with the maker of this grinder over Facebook after seeing a post on their page advertising a motor and mount they will be releasing in August to go with their hand grinder. They haven't sold many outside of Germany yet, but the few reviews and comparisons I could find on the web came from kaffee netz and the indication is the grinder compares to the rosco very well in terms of consistency and to the lido on a coarse grind. My impression is it is very similar to a Pharos with voodoo daddy mods but with greater precision due to all parts being machined professionally with those famous German tolerances. In in terms of price it is quite expensive but works out about equal to a modded Pharos after tax and import fees (if it's even possible to get the Pharos modded by voodoo daddy anymore). To cut it short: the maker has told me there will be a discount for three or more purchases in countries that are not on their map (they have a map on their website of which countries they have sold to). So I've brought this to the attention of the forum and this seemed the most appropriate place. As I have not been here for very long I can't be the organiser of any potential group buy, so I would need a trusted member to step in and take it from here. Once the number of interested people is confirmed the seller can figure out the cost and we can decide whether or not to proceed. The discount offered is €50 on each grinder if purchasing five or more. A small saving and he is currently talking with the transport provider to find out the cost for delivering multiple items within the UK. The price quoted is £416 (€587) without German Tax. The grinders delivered with be anodized silver. Link to the website: http://mahlgut.eu/ Videos:
  14. Having bought the Mahlgut Tamper and used it for a couple of weeks now I have a few thoughts: I have never been a great tamper, 80% of the time my tamp was a little off on one side, the faff spent leveling the tamp in the basket wasn't completely clear to me until starting to use this tamper. It is SO much simpler, its the same tamp every single time with basically no effort. This will be true for the PUSH or any other tamper like this, it's a complete relief. Setting up the tamper is dead easy, you weigh your normal amount of beans into your basket, lift the outer guide of the tamper so its way too high and then tamp normally. You then screw the guide down to the basket edge and then screw the handle down to meet it and lock it in place. The tamper looks like it is straight off a lathe, functional and simple. I wouldn't call it ugly but its not going to take pride of place on your work surface. It weighs so much for a tamper. 1.2kg. This weight is initially a bit weird, but I have grown to like the heft of the thing. Mahlgut do customisable base sizes which you pick when ordering, very useful if you know a 58.5 will fit your basket better than a 58.4. It cost £59* landed, for me well worth it. If the PUSH comes in at a similar/lower price point however there is no compelling reason for this to be your preference unless you need the specific basket size. *After noticing the prices go up I talked to Mahlgut who explained there was a mistake where VAT was not applied to purchases in the UK, so I got my tamper cheaper than it should have been. Landed price is going to be more like £76 with this tamper now that the prices are fixed. --------------------------------------------Original post below-------------------------------------------------------- Just spotted this on the Mahlgut website - http://mahlgut.eu/shop/allgemeines-zubehoer/mahlgut-tamper/ Anyone know anything about it, seems to be the same idea, if a little less good looking, as the PUSH.
  15. Iv'e been a bit slow actually reviewing this grinder as its the reason I have it, but I have certainly been enjoying using it in the time I have had it. Here is a mod I have done today which transforms its use for lighter roasts. Backstory is that even with the right surface the suckers on the bottom of the grinder only help out a bit, with a medium to dark roast this is all you need, but chuck in a light roast and you will really struggle. It would be difficult to justify buying such a premium grinder if it counted you out of the lighter side of life. I have been convinced the right solution to this is the type of suction cups you use when pulling a dent in a car. These 'pull' the centre of the cup and create an air lock, the lock is incredibly strong. You can pick up a piece of glass that weighs a tonne with this kinda thing (although it uses an air compressor, but thats by the by) So I found these cups on ebay that when taken apart have a 4mm shaft: (ignore the flat look of the shaft, this is one I was experimenting with an filed down) I ran a die down this shaft to create a thread, then you can put the Grist together on top of these cups and screw the 3 bottom pillars down onto these cups. This pulls the threaded shaft up and locks the cups to the surface: This has an incredibly strong hold. It's near enough bolted down. I only have some med roast Rave in at the moment but I can grind these without even putting a hand on the grinder. IMO this is the kind of solution that Mahlgut should implement out of the box, it completely eliminates the struggle associated with hand grinding light roasts.
