German commercial coffee grinder manufacturer Mahlkönig has revealed the X54 Allround grinder, the first machine in a new line of products under the banner Mahlkönig Home. The Allround’s name references both form and function. As its cylindrical body recalls the German manufacturer’s current lineup of commercial espresso grinders, the Allround has been explicitly designed as an all-around grinder for home coffee enthusiasts. The company says a stepless 35-mark adjustment knob provides suitable grind sizes for espresso at its finest, up through Aeropress, V60, auto-drip, Chemex and French Press.

54-millimeter steel burrs spun at 1,050 RPM by a motor with an expected lifetime of 25,000 shots, according to Mahlkönig. The Allround’s LED display contains 4 timer presets as well as a manual mode. An on-demand grind button sits within the casing that can accommodate portafilters or an included receptacle. Mahlkönig said the machine is also constructed to run as quietly as possible, with an active grinding noise level of less than 70 decibels, while the hopper can hold approximately 500 grams (1.1 pounds) of roasted coffee. The company told DCN that a smaller hopper is among accessories planned for future release. On the countertop, the approximately 11-pound grinder stands at roughly 7 inches wide, 16.7 inches tall and 11 inches deep, according to the manufacturer’s specs.
