  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. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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
  11. Does anyone know where Mazzer SJ originally burrs for cheap?
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. Well, for a while I've wondered about centring the burrs on the Major after reading an article on it. I noticed that the centre spindle was sightly off when looking down the throat as it slowed to a stop. I've just cleaned it out and tested the centring by holding something against the spindle, whilst slowly turning it. Found the high spot and pushed a fat headed screwdriver through the chute, and under the carrier. Then carefully gave it a nudge... (carefully..) After trying it again, and redoing the process I put it back together and tried it. Now, instead of chirping, I can tighten the grin
  18. Bella barista are out of stock and i found these http://www.elektros.it/be/en/mcf_spare_parts/coppia-macine-diam-50mm-3-fori.html Does anyone know if they would fit the mignon?. They look the same.
  19. Just stripping my new toy down for cleaning!! Got the burrs out and not being familiar with coffee grinders I thought the burrs had been rubbing together as there is a flat spot around the edge of each burr. But it also said Mazzer 0033M which I believe is their original part number. Can anyone tell me what I have please? Richard
  20. Morning, in a home environment how often should Royal burrs be took out and cleaned? Ive read a few posts where folk have took them out and then couldn't get them to grind fine enough after re fitting? I don't want this to happen as I can't be without my Royal in a morning
  21. I just got a used Mazzer Super Jolly that I bought to renovate (mostly aesthetically I hope). I have done an initial cleaning (without removing the lower burr carrier, that will come later on). However, I am unsure if the bearings are in good shape. They don't seem to be bad as when comparing with videos where the bearings are faulty the sound is different and more of a metal scratching. I am just a neewbie in this so I was thinking of reaching out to more experienced people on this forum to give me an opinion on the sound of my SJ, and if I should/need to change the bearings. I've linked a vi
  22. Hi guys, I've often wondered how to tell when the burrs in my Rocky are wearing out or need replacing? Any tips / things to look out for?
  23. It seems to me that grinders with bigger burrs seem to produce better grinds than smaller burrs according to my research on these and other forums, is this generally true? if so, to my mind, it would seem the bigger burrs have two advantages, one, they stay cooler and two, the grinds find their way out quicker because they don't come up against other grinds on the way out as much and are therefore less likely to get further chewed up when already at the required size. Are my thoughts here correct? So if my thinking is right, would 1, slowing the flow of beans from hopper to burrs red
  24. So it has just dawned on me that I should be receiving my shiny new Mazzer SJ burrs this week and they might have to be seasoned. Having never had to replace burrs before I have never had to consider seasoning burrs. Do they need seasoning? If so can I use cheap supermarket coffee? How much coffee? Any info would be appreciated.
  25. So.. I've been debating whether to get new set of burrs for my F5 (SJ ones fit apparently!) and wanted to get some advise on how to assess when this is recommended, knowing that I'd need to put several kg through new set to season them.. When I got the grinder I checked and the set Im using now looked sharp and I certainly don't get issues grinding at the moment. Having said that, the distance between adjustment dial and the upper surface of the body is only in a region of ~2mm maybe which sounds a bit on a low side. My set of etched dials from @timmyjj21 is only partially on as the '
