  1. Hi everybody. As the title says i own a Compak k10 fresh conical grinder. The problem is that i cant find replacement burrs anywhere. I m talking for the 68 mm burrs with 3 holes(NOT 4). Only Bella Barista have in stock the redspeed ones that cost around £329 . The normal ones are out of stock. I ve sent Compak two emails which they ignored. I ve asked around the UK but noone knows anything. If anyone of the forum could help it would have been great.
  2. EK43 Turkish Burrs, I bought them from Xpenno Lightly used. Most time I've used a Coffee burr set, or quite frankly I've not used my EK43 at all during long periods. £225 shipping included to UK from Spain.
  3. Hello, For a sale Mazzer Major with 83mm burrs. It is a Drogeria model with modification of Doserless. Renovated 2 years ago. Painted by a professional painter. Replaced blades/burrs with original ones (cost me about 50gbp). Works perfectly and it is in very good condition. The grinder is really made as a tank, and will work forever. It is 230V/240V version with schuko plug (germany, italy, austria, swiss etc). For UK it is just need a 3pin uk adapter. Grinder served me very well, but because I use Compak k10 fresh, Major collecting dust. If you have any additional quest
  4. I just got a well used Mazzer Mini which had been in storage for a while. I gave it a general clean including the burrs, but when I put it back together again it isn't grinding fine enough. If I turn the wheel towards finer, there comes a point where the beans don't go down into the burrs at all. If I turn slightly coarser the beans start going down again, but the grind is rather coarse still. Can someone explain? If the problem is worn burrs I've ordered some "Nearly new" ones off eBay which should arrive in a few days. I don't know how to tell the sharpness of burrs - run your finger over th
  5. I was expecting to find loads of threads on this but either my searching is rubbish or there aren't many threads. I'm hopefully getting new burrs sometime next week. I'm sure i've read about using stale beans or rice to season (or get any manufacturing residue from) new burrs, but how much are we talking about? I'm happy putting a Kg of rice through (finally using the santos at design volumes!) but is that enough? I'm assuming the burrs are CNC cut so should be pretty clean/swarf free anyway.
  6. Hi all, Just a quick question I hope but I cant seem to find the answer. I am looking to replace the burrs on my Royal but I cant find the difference between these two parts numbers... Will the Mazzer T151A burrs fit my Mazzer Royal? They fit the Mazzer Major. Or do I need then Mazzer T151B burrs? Anyone know the difference between the two parts... T151A and T151B? Thanks
  7. Not got a manual on this grinder and have searched the internet and i cant find any info on how to get to the Burrs. Anyone got any idea on how to take apart so i can give them a clean.

    I think I can feel an imminent breakthrough on my crawl up the beginner slopes of the espresso learning curve. Changed the burrs on my mignon and I think this was an underlying problem. My distribution I'm sure has a very long way to go but I had shots looking better than before even on a first test of a guessed grinder setting. So roll on a more caffeine-friendly time of day (there's only so much cricket I want to watch tonight). I'm seeing that thickness of liquid and lack of unpleasant sourness already, and I'm on the end of a bag of beans I just couldn't get on with before. To m
  9. My MDX suddenly would not grind my beans this morning. Its been a couple of months since I last stripped it down and cleaned the burrs so did that and when I put it back together it would still not grind the coffee. The noise it is making is different too. The motor is working fine so... Could it just be that I need new burrs? They still feel rough when I rub my thumb against them but I have had the grinder for 2 years and it was second hand when I bought it.... How would I know for sure it is this Thanks in advance.
  10. Have ignorance, need relieving please. I see many common references to burr diameter in grinders, 50mm, 55mm, 63mm, bigger being better but only up to a point etc etc. But where is the diameter measured? For conical burrs is it outer dia of outer burr, inner dia of outer burr, outer dia of inner burr? Or something else entirely? What about flat burrs? Are they measured differently? How can dia of flat and conical burrs be compared if at all? thank you confused of Somerset
  11. Looking for replacement burrs in Ireland Prob is some company's based in UK will not post or the prices are extortionate. Any ideas please?
  12. Hi, I have a Cunill Iberital Marfill grinder which I bought second hand. The grinder was working perfectly the last time that I used it, yet today it mysteriously is acting very, very strangely. When I switched it on, the sound was very muffled - it's usually quite a noisy beast - and it did not seem to be grinding, although things that needed to spin, were. I emptied the hopper, unplugged it and proceeded to take it apart. I thought that maybe there was a build up of coffee grounds somewhere ... if you are still reading, you've probably already understood that I am an amateur and shouldn't be
  13. Hi guys, For sale is my Mazzer Mini E Type A grinder, with 4 month old burrs fitted. I bought it from a user on this forum about 18 months ago, and it’s seen one or two 18g shots per day since I’ve had it, and the previous owner said they made 4-6 shots a day. It is 6 years old, and only ever used domestically. It has genuine Mazzer Super Jolly burrs, fitted 4 months ago, which are still very sharp, so the grinder can produce an excellent 18g shot in approx. 10-13 seconds, and I’ve applied SuperLube to the grind adjustment threads (as recommended by users on this forum), so the
  14. This is a nice clean machine, Simple to use, sub 4000 shots and does a decent and consistent espresso grind. I bought it without a hopper but couldn't source one in this country so it has one which has been 'encouraged to fit' and works fine. I've also just realised after taking photos that I've left out the stainless steel grounds tray as I didn't need it - this is immaculate and included. I'm looking for £275.00 ovno I will deliver free within 100 miles of Edinburgh but can be collected/uplifted - buyer must organise. thanks Al
  15. For sale is my Mazzer grinder. Good points: Still grinds good coffee - I have attached a photo of the titanium burrs It has a new power cord Comes with the higher capacity hopper These are awesome machines! Not so good points: Cosmetically it has had some use (I have tried to show markings in the photos) It is missing two feet - replacements can be sourced online easily. I will be happy to answer any questions. £250 ONO collection only from South Devon.
  16. Does anyone know where Mazzer SJ originally burrs for cheap?
  17. have managed to source a small 320g hopper which will clear my kitchen units, so i'm withdrawing this for now
  18. Probably no interest in them on here, but I thought as they're going on ebay too it'd be rude not too. Taken out of a brand new EK43 (purchased last month). Other than any testing that they do at Mahlkonig these haven't had 1 coffee bean through them. £350 Price includes Royal Mail special delivery.
  19. Hi all, hope you're staying safe in these crazy times. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience, positive or otherwise, with non OEM burrs sold on theespressoshop. Would it be wise for me to save a few bucks on them and use that money, in turn, to buy more coffee? Or am I better off going with what I know and going with what I know and purchasing OEM? Any advice on this matter would be much appreciated. For a little more Background its for my (very) old mazzer major a picked up second hand. I don't think the burrs have ever been changed so any change would be a good one.
  20. Hi everyone, I recently acquired a used mdf grinder. From what I gather it's good practice to replace burrs on a used grinder but I just wanted to ask if they look dull to you as they seem to be working fine? I'm producing espresso within normal time quantities etc with a grind setting of 5. It tastes great in milk based drinks but sour on its own. Then again I'm not used to drinking it straight so that might be my taste. Anyway it's just that Gaggia burrs are £40 for a set so not an amount I'd want to spend unnecessarily. I have seen some on eBay for £20 to fit this grinder but I was wonderin
  21. Hi all. I think I need to replace the burrs on my MDF. I have found them from a Gaggia spares site for £22 each...not the pair!!!! This does seem rather steep to me. Can anyone suggest a good supplier of burrs at a slightly more reasonable price?
  22. I am currently grinding on my MDF at minimum setting of 1 & 2. Most forums, videos and other places of advice suggest the MDF be set approx 6-8 for espresso. I feel that my shots are still running a little fast even at that low grind setting. So my question is, does it sound like my burrs need replacing? The MDF is approx. 4 years old. It was stripped down and cleaned about a month ago.
  23. Brand New set of Titanium burrs, genuine Mazzer 151B for Mazzer Royal. In original Mazzer packaging. 151B burrs are the exact ones for a Mazzer Royal and can be difficult to source. Not to be confused with 151A burrs which are the same size (83mm dia.) but with gentler teeth, and are designed for the Mazzer Major although they will fit a Royal. 151Bs are specifically for the more powerful, slower revving motor of the Royal and give better performance with a faster grind and minimal temperature rise of the coffee. Titanium burrs last the best part of a lifetime. £69.00 plus postage at cos
  24. Bought a forte bg and changed to ceramic burrs for espresso so I have a set of nearly new steel burrs for sale. i can't see these any cheaper than £90 online so looking for £50 to cover the cost of the changeover.
  25. As an upgrade to my existing Brasilia RR55OD I bought a Simonelli Mythos grinder from a fellow forum member a few months ago. It's quite high mileage and after stripping it down for a deep clean I found the current Ti burrs to feel quite blunt so decided to buy a new set of Ti burrs for it. The best price I could find for these was Bella Barista (£119inc Vat) but they had none in stock so I've been patiently waiting for the past month or two still using the RR55OD. Three sets of burrs arrived in stock last Friday so I quickly ordered a set and with the usual great service Bella Barista se
