Casted Burrs

80mm - nice!

 

if it's as simple and faff-free to use as the old version then they'll be onto a winner!

The blue one looks a good match to the Peak's decal ;-)

Nice find, looks like it should be a real winner! Presumably best bits from EK and K30 rolled into one.


DE1Pro, EK43 SSP, bloody tasty coffee!

I wonder, update/replacement to the K30 at a similar price point, or a decidedly different one commensurate with the change in burr size. If it's the latter, this could be a seriously expensive grinder.

They probably didn't feel the need to run it past a committee of wives for acceptance...:)

Their mistake. I just think it's a bit lazy! My bad.

I agree Jon.

Grinders are never the prettiest things but a bit of effort would be nice!

Just saw that, interested to see what difference the cast burrs make.

About £400...

 

Ha! What about the red "peak" stripe? That must add a few £?

And another £200 reserved for a future special edition that leaves the stripe off.

 

You would think at this level you could have aesthetics AND function, given that Mahlkonig know that this is one of precious few serious grinders that is uncompromisingly feasible to use in a domestic setting.

 

It would be interesting to have insight as to what sort of revenue Mahlkonig see from domestic sales vs commercial sales. Clearly the former isn't going to be the lion's share, but I shouldn't imagine it's entirely insignificant either, especially when being specific to the K30?
