Mahlkönig marks centenary in Chicago

Mahlkönig EK Omnia

German grinder manufacturer Mahlkönig celebrated 100 years in business at Specialty Coffee Expo in Chicago, United States, from 12 to 14 April.

During the Expo event, the Mahlkönig team hosted their industry colleagues at The First 100 Years party in collaboration with Intelligentsia Coffee and Standart Magazine. The event included a gallery which gave guests a peek into the company’s past, including historic images of its vintage equipment. The highlight of the party was a huge 100th birthday cake.

At the Specialty Coffee Expo, the brand shared a booth with US partners Black Rabbit Service Co, Visions Espresso, Prima Coffee Equipment, and Congruent. Mahlkönig showcased its EK Omnia grinder (pictured top), which the team report to have received fantastic industry reception. The engaging display over the three-day event included a tattoo artist who inked attendees with the brand’s iconic EK 45 grinder.

Mahlkönig will continue to celebrate its centenary year, and highlight the EK Omnia, at the World of Coffee event in Copenhagen, Denmark, from 27 to 29 June.
