Key Features and What They Mean
Premium Cast Steel Grinding Discs (Ø 80mm)
The Peak’s large, flat grinding discs produce a perfectly uniform grind and a sweet finish in the espresso. Built with durable cast steel burrs, the Peak supplies high resistance and a reduced settling-in effect for optimum efficiency and consistency.
Double Ventilation System
This dual system facilitates enhanced heat removal even while the grinder is going nonstop, ensuring perfect espresso flavor all day long.
Reduced Motor Revolutions
An idle speed of 900 and 1,100 RPM makes for incredibly cool grinding and increased dosing accuracy. The lower RPM generates less static, resulting in less product wastage.
Adjustable Spout Tube
Use any size portafilter with this grinder. Simply adjust the spout to reach the center of the portafilter for even distribution. This will promote even extraction of all the nuanced coffee notes.
Accurate Dose Adjustment Steps in 0.01 Seconds
Like baking, espresso is a science that requires exact measurements. Programming single and double doses in 0.01 second increments can take even the slightest variability out of the equation.
Stepless Grind Adjustment
The Peak has the most precise adjustment scale, ensuring accuracy and repeatability of results. You have unlimited control of the grind settings so that you can master dialing in the grind.
Premium OLED Display
Highly user-friendly, this display gives you a wide viewing angle (>160°) and access to an intuitive software menu. You’ll even have a live temperature readout to monitor your work closely.
Illuminated Spout Area
See what you’re doing up close and in detail. The illuminated spout area increases visibility, even in darker environments.
Solid Portafilter Fork for Hands-Free Grinding
This grinder provides hands-free grinding, meaning you can walk away and attend to other tasks after you position the portafilter. The Peak will hold the portafilter in place and grind according to programming automatically, allowing you to multitask.

Common Questions and Answers
Q: Who should purchase a flat burr grinder like the Peak?
A: In the world of commercial espresso grinders, there are flat and conical burr options. Each has its own advantages and effects on the espresso.
If you’re looking at a flat burr grinder (which grinds coffee with two horizontally-facing flat burrs), what you’re going to get is the most uniform particle consistency.
The uniformity of the particle distribution creates a blending effect of the coffee’s varied flavor characteristics. Many experts feel that chocolaty and nutty flavors are emphasized, which works especially well with coffee types presenting these notes.
A conical burr grinder features a conical burr mechanism and produces bimodal particles, or coffee particles of different sizes. This can be excellent for creating a traditional espresso flavor and emphasizing brighter notes. On the other hand, it can be easy to over-extract the smallest particles (fines).
The Mahlkonig Peak’s flat burrs are designed to produce sweeter-tasting espresso with well-blended flavors. If this is what you’re looking for in your shop, a flat burr grinder (the Peak in particular) is what you want.
Q: Why is heat removal important in an espresso grinder?
A: The bottom line is that too much heat kills the espresso flavor.
Grinders that aren’t constructed to the highest design standards may build too much heat. This can cause the espresso to taste muddy, burned, and or excessively bitter, no matter how perfectly the shot is pulled.
Motor speed, grinding disc size and design, and ventilation are all factors that work together in determining how warm or cool the grinder will be.
With reduced RPM, top-quality grinding discs, and a double ventilation system, the Peak can be used continuously with no danger of damaging the coffee grounds—friction is reduced and heat is whisked away.
Q: What is the difference between a stepped grinder and a stepless grinder like the Peak?
A: A stepless grinder like the Peak differs from a stepped grinder in one key way.
Stepped grinders are made with preset notches to choose from a limited number of fineness settings. In contrast, a stepless grinder offers limitless grind setting choices.
Professional baristas tend to favor stepless grinders because they offer the greatest control. You don’t have to settle for an almost-good-enough grind setting.
You can choose the exact fineness setting you need for any coffee. Only then can you really tailor your espresso recipes and get the results you want.
