Mahlgut coffee grinder MOLA-e

The idea behind the Mahlgut coffee grinder MOLA-e is simple: The best high-quality materials, reduced design paired with precise functionality and easily operable. A robust stability with minimal dead space rounds out the concept of the crafted single-dose coffee grinder MOLA-e. Exemplary industrial design from the Ruhr Valley and Made in Germany quality.

MOLA-e is 32 cm altogether in height. The nearly 28 cm wide ground plate, like the cover, is made from German oak, and is solid as a rock. Even light beans cannot shake the otherwise entirely stainless steel fabricated coffee grinder with its 11 kg.
The adjustment of the grinder setting is very easy: release lever, rotate cylinder and set the grinder coarser or finer. Nothing more is necessary. The new grinder setting will take effect immediately with the next portion. The perfect grind setting is quickly found and easily repeatable every time due to the easy-to-read scale and the thin rotation mechanism.

Going without a hopper is typical for a single-dose coffee grinder like the MOLA-e. An opening for easy pour in of portioned coffee beans is sufficient. This is designed this way so that an additional seal is not necessary. Furthermore, the dual mounted shaft for the grinder behind the opening, along with the sealed ball bearings, are protected by a control. Should a finger get in there, nothing happens and no one is injured. Of course, that is also why no beans and coffee grounds come in contact with the shaft or the ball bearings.

When the grind setting is configured and the correct portion of coffee beans poured in, then the grinding process can be started. Just push the button and wait a moment until all the beans are neatly and quietly ground up. MOLA-e rotates at a gentle 100 rotations per minute, just as fast as a comparable hand grinder. As a result, there is absolutely no overheating with the mill charge. Despite the low rotation speed, the Japanese-made motor can withstand a temporary load of up to 20 N.m therefore, light roasts are also no problem. The transmission of the motor to the shaft occurs over low maintenance and quiet metal gear wheels which convey the power optimally. As soon as the stainless steel button is pushed again, the grinder stops immediately.

The MOLA-e, with its full discharge funnel, ensures that the clump-free coffee grounds are not strewn in all directions, but land where they are supposed to: either in the filter holder or in the optional Blind Tumblr.

Of course the filter holder can be adjusted in height without a problem. Even the filter holder grip pads are height adjustable.

MOLA-e draws its power either over the supplied power supply unit or over an optional Lithium-Polymer battery which disappears completely in the left pedestal and is not visible. With this, the coffee grounds can be flexibly positioned without there having to be a plug in the area. With a fully charged Lipo battery, a good 5-6 kg of coffee can be ground over a time frame of a couple of months.

The heart of the MOLA-e is a reliable, 68 mm conical burr set made of steel that we receive directly from Italy. After loosening just three screws, the entire grinding mechanism can be removed for cleaning. The firm, PlascoTEC, through an optional DLC coating, will make the grinder, among other things, considerable harder and wear-resistant with a lower coefficient of friction.
