Description Specifications Resources

Mahlkonig, known for their impressive build quality and accuracy added another workhorse to your cafe. The Mahlkonig K30 Vario is one of the industries leading commercial coffee grinders. Its grind-on-demand configuration allows the barista to grind coffee directly into the portafilter with freshness and aroma-saving portioning. It's speed of grind, 7 grams in less than 2 seconds, and ease of use will quickly make the K30 a favorite of your baristas.

Coffee Freshness

With the K30 Vario's grind-on-demand configuration you instantly improve your coffee's freshness. Without leaving coffee grounds in a doser and grinding directly into the portafilter you can be sure your ground coffee is always at it's freshest.

Hands-Free Operation

The Mahlkonig grinder starts automatically when you insert your portafilter. The K30 has 20 different precise grind settings. You can precisely dial in the exact grind you want for very small increments. The Vario allows even finer adjustments because it is a stepless espresso grinder.

Accurate Portioning

Electronically controlled, very exact, consistent dosing and grind profile ensure consistent pour rates. About 1.9 seconds per single espresso. You can control portioning with push-buttons for sing and double-shot dosing.

Optimum Range of Use

The holder of the portafilter is adjustable for most types of espresso machines. This allows the barista even further customization of how they'd like to use the K30 Vario.

Quiet Operation

Awesome grinder. Great customer service October 26, 2018
Reviewer: Dave from Golden Beach, FL United States  
Originally, I purchased this grinder from Seattle Coffee Gear.  After four days I heard nothing from them.  When I called they said they didn't know when it would ship.  Although their website says they have it in stock they actually drop ship.  So, I called Chris' Coffee at noon that day and had a tracking number by 2pm. The grinder was delivered shortly after.  Awesome customer service once again from Chris' Coffee!  This stepless grinder is awesome!  Quiet, fast, consistent and easy to adjust. Love it.

Great Grinder. Terrible Service. April 9, 2018
Reviewer: MBR from Illinois  
I purchased this grinder for home use. It arrived with an electrical fault. Chris' would not help in resolving and instead passed me off to the manufacturer to deal with them on my own, stating that it was not their issue. Ultimately I was able to get a new grinder direct from Mahlkonig, but the experience with Chris' was nonetheless very disappointing.

Unfortunately some products we sell the service is handled directly by the manufacture. This is their call and not ours. If the manufacturer does not provide our customers with quality service we drop them as a supplier. In this case the customer was taken care of by Mahlkonig but just did not want to hear that they needed to go through Mahlkonig.
