The award winning Mahlkönig Pro M Espresso Grinder is a great choice for pairing with your semi-automatic Espresso machine. It is a constant precise performer that relieves you of any worries about grind consistency. The large easy to read control knob on the side allows you to quickly set grind fineness. The 65mm steel grinding discs are belt driven by a powerful motor and provide very quick delivery of grinds into your portafilter. The receiver is adjustable to fit all sizes of portafilters. Its unique shape holds the portafilter steady allowing you to operate the grinder just by setting it in the receiver where it engages a switch that runs the motor.
The language selectable programmable controls provide easy adjustment of grind size and time to establish pre-sets for dose sizes or to bypass the pre-sets for manual dosing. Independent dosing pre-sets of single and double shot sizes can be saved in memory. Pre-setting the dose size can be accomplished by setting grind-time with the touch-pad display at the front of the large bean hopper. The controls also keep track of additional information including shot counters for single, double, barista, and life. It also has resettable alerts for cleaning and disc change.
The Pro M Espresso Grinder operates when a portafilter is engaged in the receiver allowing portion controlled fluffy fresh grounds for espresso to drop right into the portafilter. The grounds dispense evenly into all sizes of portafilters.
A feature called the break-function allows you to interrupt the grind to do a partial tamp by just removing the portafilter. Returning the portafilter to the receiver continues the grind. The controller will remember how much grind time is remaining and show it on the touch-pad display.
For those who desire a les automatic experience the machine can be put into barista mode. In this mode the timer for dosing is switched off and the motor is switched on or off by engaging the portafilter in the receiver.
With grind-on-demand and easy pre-setting of grind size and time for all kinds of portafilters the Pro M provides hands-free operation. And the break-function and barista mode allows your inner barista to free-fill the portafilter by eye and tamp part-way through dosing.
The 65mm, (2.56 inches), steel disc burrs will grind the most robust coffee bean with ease. They are very long life and rated for 80,000 doses before needing to be replaced. Depending on fineness setting they can grind 1.5g to 3g per second. That means they will grind an average single espresso dose in about 5 seconds.
The bean hopper has a 1.3lb capacity and includes an integrated slider gate to close off the bottom when you need to remove the hopper with beans still in it.
Safety devices include a microswitch that senses correct mounting of the bean hopper and keeps the machine from running until the bean hopper is correctly seated and locked into position. A fuse accessible from the footplate protects the machine against external power surges. Foreign objects in the grind chamber are sensed by motor load and if the motor slows down a blockage warning will display on the touch-pad screen and the machine will shut off until the blockage is dealt with.
