If you’ve been a barista at any point in the last few decades, you’ve likely used a mahlkönig espresso grinder. These premium commercial coffee and espresso grinders are a staple in the best specialty cafes across the world. They are streamlined, efficient and dependable, a barista’s first choice for espresso and all other brewing methods. They are also used in catering businesses, coffee carts, micro roasters and large scale roasters, hotels and more. Founded in 1924, Mahlkonig is now a brand of Hemro International AG and has been at the forefront of professional coffee and espresso grinders for decades.
The mahlkonig x54 is a flat burr grinder with a high capacity and wide range, able to accommodate particle size for many different brewing methods. Its burrs are large and made from hardy steel, ensuring they can be used for years to come. The X54’s adjustment knob is large and graduated, making it easy to fine-tune your espresso grind. It’s a simple feature, but it makes a big difference.

The X54 has a number of other features that make it stand out among its competition. Its Disc Distance Detection system allows you to accurately set your grind fineness by measuring the distance between the burrs. Unlike some competing grinders, like the Niche Zero, which has a varying degree of fineness, the X54 can maintain the same exact fineness throughout a grinding session. It also comes with a portafilter fork, which allows you to hold the portafilter in place and frees up your hands for other tasks.
