Good to see it's the same.
It's Mahlkonig, not the first time you'll find conflicting specs on their website, it has happened before, for example Mahlkonig have had different specs on their brochures (pdf) and on the spec sheet. Even the users manual supplied with the grinder can have different specs than those supplied on the website.
I regularly purchase products from german websites and this is really not that uncommon.
