Bigger burrs, higher extraction
The Mahlkonig PEAK was designed with sweet, high extraction ratio espressos in mind. In recent history, coffee professions have turned to large, flat burr shop grinders for these high extraction ratios, but have had to deal with the inconvenience of using a shop grinder for espresso production. Mahlkonig set out to make that process simple, by integrating some of the technology of the EK43 grinding burrs into the PEAK. The result is an espresso grinder capable of keeping up with the busiest of lines, while still maintaining that sweetness of high ratio coffees. The burrs are adjustable with Mahlkonig’s Stepless grind adjustment system, capable of being locked, to ensure the grind keeps its place.
The Mahlkonig PEAK features an all new interface, with a wide viewing angle color OLED display. This shows the barista information about the grinder, such as dosage time, number of shots, and even temperature inside the grinder. The display also allows the grind time to be adjusted to 0.01 seconds, resulting in dose accuracy down to 0.1 gram in the real world. This means less time correcting the dosage on the grinder when there’s a line out the door.
The Mahlkonig PEAK features a large, 3.3 pound hopper, meaning you have to spend less time filling the hopper, and more time managing the bar. The shape of the hopper is designed to lessen the impact of hopper load on the consistency of the coffee produced.
