Mahlkönig X54 Home Coffee Grinder Overview
One of the most reputable brands in the coffee industry, Mahlkönig, has finally entered the home-coffee scene with the Mahlkönig X54 Home Coffee Grinder. When we got our hands on it and experienced it ourselves, it was an unanimous yes to bring it on. We are excited to have something in our lineup of grinders that can grind your perfect espresso and also a great cup of coffee.
The X54 is truly an all-purpose grinder. It has a wide range of adjustments and doesn’t sacrifice the taste of your coffee or space on your countertop. If you’re looking for a great espresso grinder, the step-less dial allows micro-adjustments perfect for fine-tuning your recipe. If you seek a high-end filter coffee grinder, you can trust the X54 to grind your batch brew consistently, go fine enough for a V60, and coarse enough for cold brew. If you like to make a variety of drinks in your home, the X54 gives you a level of control to make great coffee regardless of the brew method.
The build quality lives up to Mahlkonig’s reputation. It looks and feels just as nice as the grinders in your favorite cafe but is designed to be a perfect fit for the home. Sitting just under 17 inches tall, seven and a half inches wide, and 11 inches deep, this grinder will easily stand under most standard kitchen cabinets. The fit and finish feel durable and sturdy at every touchpoint. The LED display offers four programmable recipes including manual mode if you like to grind freestyle. Plus, the insulated metal casing keeps the volume to a minimum while in use. The X54 not only grinds for all brew methods well, but it completely converts into your grinder of choice with swappable front plates for filter coffee or a portafilter clip insert.
Whether you frequently switch between brew methods or are just looking for an excellent home grinder, the X54 can do it all and well.
