Common Questions and Answers

Q: What does “grind-on-demand” mean for the K30 Vario Air?

A: When an on-demand grinder like the Mahlkonig K30 Vario Air grinds coffee, it dispenses it into the portafilter directly. In contrast, a doser grinder grinds coffee into an attached container. The user then operates a trigger to transfer the coffee into the portafilter from there.

The grind-on-demand model is ideal for preserving the freshness of the coffee after it’s ground, at which point it’s much more prone to becoming stale than whole-bean coffee.

Grinders with dosing chambers can be great for businesses grinding large amounts of coffee at a time to use relatively immediately, but it can mean wasting product if you’re not using it all right away, or worse, inferior espresso if it gets cycled into freshly ground coffee for espresso.

Going with an on-demand grinder like the K30 Vario Air ensures that you’re never losing any quality from a freshness perspective as the coffee is always ground for immediate use.

Q: How is stepless grind adjustment in the K30 Vario Air different from stepped grind adjustment in other models?

A: Stepped and stepless grinders both have their advantages for different users and applications. The difference between them lies in the amount of control you have over the adjustment options.

A stepped grinder gives you a certain number of adjustment presets from fine to coarse. You may feel them click into place as you turn the adjustment wheel or knob.

A stepped system like the one in the K30 Vario Air eliminates presets so that you’re turning the adjustment wheel freely. Because of this, you can make changes in any increment you want.

Typically, stepped grinders can be beneficial for beginners and for multipurpose coffee and espresso grinders because they allow you to switch from one end of the fineness spectrum to the other quickly. 

The problem, however, is that stepped grinders likely won’t offer the control of the fineness needed to perfect your espresso recipes. If you want the best flavor and consistency, you need a stepless system.

Q: What is the difference between a flat burr grinder like the K30 Vario Air and a conical burr grinder?

A: As a flat burr grinder, the K30 Vario Air creates the highest degree of grind consistency. The coffee is ground into evenly sized particles, which balances the flavors and creates a deep, rich espresso flavor. Often, a sweeter finish comes from a flat burr grinder.

If you’re thinking of a sharper, brighter espresso flavor, you may be thinking of the kinds of results from a conical burr grinder. It produces bimodal particles, or coffee particles of different sizes, which tends to create a purposefully imbalanced extraction that accentuates the brighter notes. 

While this is helpful for creating that traditional espresso taste, it’s known to somewhat limit the range of experimentation with espresso recipes. There is also the risk of over-extracting smaller coffee particles and under-extracting larger ones, leading to a higher ratio of bitter flavors.

It’s true that coffee enthusiasts have their preferences between the flat and conical burr grinder types. If you think you might prefer a more balanced flavor profile with a sweeter finish, the K30 Vario Air is the ultimate option.

A: Stepped and stepless grinders both have their advantages for different users and applications. The difference between them lies in the amount of control you have over the adjustment options.

In-House Testing & Manufacturing Our espresso machines and grinders are high quality, specialty equipment. They are manufactured mainly in Italy, Spain, and Germany (for Mahlkonig grinders).

Some hand crafted machines may have slight imperfections from manually hammering the raw materials.

Many products are bench tested prior to shipping to ensure they are in perfect working condition before arriving at your location.

Therefore, some coffee grinds and remnants of water may be visible upon receiving the machine. This does not indicate the machine is used. We only ship brand new machines unless we state otherwise.

Any open box or used equipment will be specially and clearly marked on the individual product page.

Mahlkonig gh2

This thing is awesome and arrived SUPER quick!

Quick and easy with a little mess.

As advertised, it tamps consistently. Each tamping process is quicker and easier than manual tamping. I like the fact the process requires only one hand, as opposed to two in manual.
The only drawback is that the tamper surface gets dirty with the grind very quickly (because it does not 'twist" as in manual). After 3 or 4 tamps we have to clean it with a rug or a brush, leaving the coffee grind around the device.
Overall, we are happy with the purchase, and my overworked wrist with a tendonitis thanks a lot. I know it is an expensive investment, but loss of my hand will cost a lot more.

Good Service I called to inquire about the PUQ58 and got the answer right away we loved the automatic makes life a little easier for everyone
Thanks

Izzo Alex Leva

Well right at one year ago I got my Alex Leva and dearly love it .. But today after right at one year of use it has stopped working... You flick the on switch and nothing , the PID does not light up but the on/off switch lights up sometimes but not always.. Other than the light on the on/off switch the machine seems dead... I do hope this is not a big deal after just a year of use... Up until this point I would give my Alex Leva a five star rating , but now I may have to revise my review... We shall see.
