Looks like a E37S competitor, but with 1599 Euro price tag :roll:
maybe anfim pratica will be more competitively priced.

I think that's the question that seems to have not been answered yet.

The K30 has it's new version out with the K30 2.0 which IIRC is more expensive with it's new screen. It seems like maybe this will fill the niche of the original K30 but just in a smaller package.

A little?
That's nearly 500€ cheaper ...
Does anyone know all the differences between the two ... or is it „only" design and branding

From the pictures and information provided it only looks like there is a small difference in the design of the hoppers and adjustment collars, so yes you do seem to pay allot extra for the branding, as you always do with Mahlkonig.

But as always the actual price will drop after a few months, so I'll expect the two grinders to be within a narrower price range down the line. However Anfim is the cheaper brand of the 3, so a price difference is to be expected.

K30 can be had for €1699 so it's actually cheaper then a normal K30, €300 cheaper than the air version, additional €1000 cheaper than the V2. However none of those prices are MRP, so the €1599 MRP is not the price we will end up paying.
