The name mahlkonig coffee grinder fills the hearts of most baristas with a special sort of excitement. It’s a name that’s synonymous with high-quality and state of the art coffee grinding. Mahlkonig’s legendary EK43 grinder can be found in cafes around the world and is known as the Queen of Grinders. The X54 is their first grinder designed for the home market, and it’s a worthy entry in the space.
The X54 offers many of the same features that professional grinders have but scaled down to fit into a home environment. You can use the hopper to grind directly into your portafilter for espresso or into the included dosing cup for filter coffee. The 35 stepless adjustments allow for fine tuning of particle size, and the 54mm flat steel burrs will produce beautifully even grounds. The X54 has a magnet that safeguards the burrs from metal objects that could damage or scratch them, and it’s easy to remove and insert the hopper and dosing cup.
Choosing the Right Mahlkönig Grinder for Your Coffee Business
The X54 is also equipped with a shot counter, which will allow you to keep track of your average shots so you can accurately gauge the number of ounces you’re going through and adjust your supplies and prices accordingly. The X54 has a sleek, modern design and it’s surprisingly quiet compared to other home grinders we’ve tested. To learn more about the X54 check out our review video above.
