  1. Hi, I'm selling my trusty coffee grinder, a Compak K3 Touch. I have only owned it for about 4 months, and I bought it second hand from a place called Wogan Coffee in Bristol, so it was a trusted place where all of their appliances are checked and in top condition. This is an absolutely fantastic grinder which can easily from filter all the way to very fine espresso grind, I'm simply selling because it is above my needs - I mostly make filter coffee. I personally have only put around 5-10kg of beans through it, so it really hasn't seen a huge amount of use. I have always cleaned this grinder and looked after it after each use, and it has served me incredibly well. I am after £100. I would prefer pickup from Bristol, in the BS6 area. I'm not totally against posting but it may take me a little while as I'm quite busy. Don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions. Rory
  2. Hi all, Just wanted to share possibly the best bargain I've ever got... I managed to pick up a Compak K3 Touch for £60 off gumtree. I'm seriously impressed with this thing, It is so consistent and is just a world away from my old Graef grinder which did (just) grind for espresso, but barely. Having a good grinder makes all the difference!
  3. Hi guys, I'm after your opinions on this particular grinder that I'm considering buying second hand. https://www.gumtree.com/p/coffee-machines/wega-automatic-coffee-bean-grinder/1228041295 They list it as a Wega nero but I'm assuming its the 5.8 Instant; am I right in assuming this is actually a renamed Compak K3 Advanced? If this is the case, are the compak k3 burrs interchangable if I purchase new ones through bella barista? What, if anything, is likely to have gone wrong with one of these that I should be looking out for before purchasing? Just seems a great deal as I was about to pull the plug on a new K3 for £350 from bella barista; or do you think it might be a better option buying it new with the safety of a 2 year warrantee, as this will be my main grinder for home use after an upgrade due to frustration with the unbearable Sage samrt grinder pro that refuses to grind beans roasted lighter than dark roast. Any help I can get from any of you more experienced with machines of this calibre will go a long way, so thanks in advance.
  4. Just finished disassembling, cleaning and reassembling my new grinder so thought it would be the perfect time to post my set up. So here is my Izzo Alex MK1 and Compak K10, next to my Gaggia Classic and Compak K3. The pictures don't really show how much bigger the K10 is to the K3. Really happy with my set up and shows that you can get a good one cheaply, if you are willing to scour eBay for weeks and clean for a couple days. Posting this while waiting for my machine to heat up, so I can make my first coffee with the new grinder. Does still need work, grinder is missing a piece and the doser lens cracked in transport.
  5. I have available this 2 year old rebadged (wega) compak k3 touch advance, super easy to use and adjust, there is an in depth review of these done by Dave C on BB site, they are currently out of stock but retail at £350 but this includes spare burrs, this one is in great condition, I have stripped and cleaned it so it is ready to go. The burrs are fine and have plenty of life left in them, but if you want it perfect then get a brand new set and fit them yourself. This is in good condition with some signs of wear but nothing that detracts from the look of this lovely little grinder. £240 inc mainland uk delivery
  6. Hi all. Does anyone know where I may locate a wiring diagram for a K3, the version with the timer adjuster POT underneath the machine? Compak are a bit reluctant to help. All part of my renovation of a K3.
  7. Cost a fortune new so if anybody got one lying around and is a reasonable price then please give me a shout.
  8. Yes that`s me off again, contemplating the grinder future this time. Anyway, there, broadly speaking appear to be a number of forum groupings in respect of grinder choices, apologies for any assumptions, errors or omissions. 1. The Iberital MC2 club, presumably purchased as mine was based on performance per pound and generally good reviews on the net. 2. The Mahlkonig Vario group, purchased as a result of excellent reviews ( some naysayers recently though) and the digital control system. 3. Zassenhausers et al, or no mate, elektrikery is the devils work and just check my fluffy grounds for not a lot of dosh. 4. The monolith grinders, Mazzer Robur et al, for those who will have and can afford the best. 5 . The rest, as in anyone who has bought something different (you`re the guys I`m mostly interested in but please chip in everyone). So much for the grouping related preamble, I feel the need to consider a new grinder next year (grinder first, machine second mantra recited) and of course I want maximum grinder for least pennies. So far, the Macap MC4 has caught my eye, Mazzer performance for a lot less? and Gaz on the forum seems to like his one. I eagerly await your observations, comments etc. Don
