Mahlkönig and La Marzocco Proudly Present: The Sync System
Master Consistency and Unlock Repeatable Coffee Quality
At Mahlkönig and La Marzocco, we share a common goal: delivering quality coffee moments with unmatched speed and convenience around the world. In collaboration we've taken the next step: unlocking the possibility to produce high quality espresso shots reproducible and repeatable across different employees/baristas and locations.
What is the Sync System?
The Sync System consists of a Mahlkönig E80W Grind-by-Sync paired with a La Marzocco machine* which are seamlessly synchronized using the Mahlkönig Sync and LM Pro mobile app. The system allows wireless communication between the grinder and the espresso machine and ensures that every espresso shot is of unparalleled quality, reproducible in all outlets, and by anyone operating the machine. No more manual adjustments – just great quality shots every time.

How Does it Work?
Through wireless synchronization via the Mahlkönig Sync and La Marzocco Pro apps, the espresso machine and grinder exchange data, adjusting the grind size automatically. If the shot runs too fast, indicating a coarse grind, the app signals the grinder to refine the grind adjustment. Contrarily, if the shot is too slow, indicating a fine grind, the grinder adjusts for a coarser grinding. This real-time communication ensures consistency in taste and quality, creating the perfect cup, no matter the location.
Maximized Consistency: Same product quality can be delivered consistently across locations and shifts.
Increased Efficiency: Baristas have more time for customer interactions as they can brew faster, enhancing the overall customer experience.
Ultra-Precise Micro-Adjustments: Automatic grind size adjustment unlocks the possibility of micro-adjustments of grind size.
Streamlined Training: Reduced training efforts for staff required, simplifying operations.
Centralized Control: Managers have complete control over recipes and operational data and insights in a Manager Portal.
Remote Monitoring: Roasters and retailers can monitor grinding quantities, optimizing their operations.
Informed Decision-Making: Equipment distributors and service partners gain insights for targeted maintenance and replacements.
Sustainability: Decreased coffee wastage contributes to a greener planet. The technology benefits everyone involved - from equipment users to roasters, coffee retailers, equipment distributors, and service partners.
E80W Grind-by-Sync: The Future of Espresso Grinding
We are proud to unveil the E80W Grind-by-Sync, our first espresso grinder featuring this groundbreaking technology. The E80W Grind-by-Sync is a significant evolution of the E80 Grind-by-Weight showcasing remarkable new features. Now equipped with cloud connectivity, it also offers an electrical adjustment of disc distance. This adjustment still can be precisely controlled by the barista manually or, when synchronized with a machine, it automatically aligns with the target extraction time. Furthermore, the E80W Grind-by-Sync incorporates an intelligent algorithm, enhancing its ability to manage disc distance with precision, ensuring perfect extraction every time.
The Future of The Sync System
Our vision for Grind-by-Sync extends beyond being a Mahlkönig and La Marzocco digital partnership. We aim to evolve it into the go-to ecosystem for professional coffee preparation by facilitating data exchange with other coffee equipment and software solutions. The initial collaboration involves La Marzocco, with whom we will premier this technology together and launch it via a collaborative launch communication plan, as we share the overarching goal of delivering quality coffee moments with unmatched speed and convenience.
Mahlkönig Distributors can order the new E80W Grind-by-Sync as of October 2023 with shipments to global markets starting in January 2024.
