Key Features and What They Mean
80mm Flat Burrs
The Tanzania’s large, flat grinding discs achieve a rate of consistency that ensures great-tasting coffee 100% of the time. Keeping heat from building up, the Tanzania grinds quickly, from fine to medium-coarse at a pace of 1.2 to 2 pounds a minute.
Stepless Grind Adjustment
Accessed right at the side of the grinder, stepless grind adjustment creates the opportunity to dial in the grind with ideal results. You can fine-tune to your heart’s content and make any type of coffee as good as it can possibly be.
At 8.1 inches wide, 11.6 inches deep, and 24.9 inches high, this grinder is engineered for small to medium businesses. It keeps your work space free of clutter if your counters easily become overcrowded.
1.6 Pound Transparent Bean Hopper
The 1.6 pound bean hopper holds more than enough coffee for standard single-pound retail bags. You can do even more than that with enough room in the hopper to accommodate quantities for other grinding needs.
Bag Clamp and Knock-Off Device
This feature duo assists you in creating a more efficient atmosphere by holding onto retail bags while the Tanzania grinds and quickly clearing the coffee chute. You’ll avoid leftover coffee clumps in the grinder and save your product from being wasted small amounts at a time.
The bag shaker gently vibrates to settle the fluffy ground coffee so that you don’t have to spend time doing this manually.
Further increasing temperature control, the motor ventilation system makes this model even more effective at maintaining cool grinding. The coffee will stay at peak quality.
Magnetic Disc Carrier
Holding the grinding discs in place with magnetic disc carriers instead of screws, the Tanzania cuts down on cleaning time and gets every precious gram of coffee into the bag or filter with no residues left behind.

Common Questions and Answers
Q: How is a flat burr grinder like the Tanzania different from a conical burr grinder?
A: With a flat burr grinder like the Tanzania, you’re getting the guarantee of a consistent grind. The coffee particles it produces are of a perfectly uniform size, which ultimately means that the brewed coffee will have a more balanced flavor.
Creating a bimodal particle size distribution, or coffee ground into particles of different sizes, a conical burr grinder typically emphasizes brighter flavors. At the same time, it can be tricky to make sure that the finer particles don’t become over-extracted and lend an unpleasant taste to the coffee.
Among premium retail coffee grinders, flat burr types are not at all uncommon considering their reliable results and applicability to any roast.
Q: What is stepless grind adjustment and how does it work in the Tanzania?
A: Stepless grind adjustment gives you a lot more freedom to choose any grind setting that you might prefer. But let’s start by breaking down what a stepped grinder looks like for a comparison.
Stepped grinders have preset notches on the adjustment wheels. When you change the coarseness, the dial clicks into place in one of the preset notches. While it’s easy to switch between settings, you don’t have access to any settings in between the notches.
If you want those in-between settings, you want a stepless grinder. The Mahlkonig Tanzania allows you to make more precise changes to the grind that suit your particular taste and brewing methods. This is one way to make your product stand out.
Q: What does grinder heat buildup have to do with coffee quality?
A: Any grinder worth its salt should have some means of limiting heat buildup while it grinds coffee. The reason behind this is that an excess of heat has the real potential to make the coffee taste dull, burned, or otherwise underwhelming.
There are many ways in which a grinder can be designed to prevent this from happening. There may even be a combination of features that work in tandem to control the grinder temperature.
In the Tanzania, the large burrs and motor ventilation team up to keep it cool at all times. Because the large burrs don’t require many rotations to grind the coffee, friction is reduced. When you add in the ventilation system, any heat generated from continuous use can properly escape.
The bottom line is that the Tanzania is built for cool grinding in all environments, which is good news for the quality of your product.
