  1. These burrs were swapped out of a Compak E8 when bought as I replaced them with Red Speed burrs. They are therefore brand new with only testing use at the factory. £15 including UK postage
  2. I came down this morning to a worktop covered in coffee grinds and couldnt work out why. Then I started to hear an odd noise when I was in the lounge. Turns out it was my E8 grinding on it's own. It was set to a .2 second grind time which I use to top up the basket. I switched the button to change it to my 4.5second grind time to see what that did. Turns out that resulted in even more coffee on the worktop. I assumed it was perhaps a temprental portafilter switched, but then it started beeping constantly at me with and without grinding. Clearly a gremlin in there somewhere. It has not got wet or been mistreated in any way recently to warrant this unruly behaviour. I am a bit stuck with regard to next steps as I was very lucky to have won this grinder from a forum raffle in 2015. So no idea about where to go for warranty or support. Anyone else seen such odd behaviour?
  3. I bought this grinder in September 2018 from Bella Barista, comes with their transferable warranty. This is the version with polished aluminium finish and the 3 dose interface. Comes with the excellent 83mm red speed burrs for lower retention, less friction as well as extended life. I have put 18kg through it according to the counter and these burrs are rated for 3000kg. It has the cupping hopper which holds about 300g. In excellent condition with just some wear from normal use on the portafilter holder. Bought for £1490, l am selling for £1200. I am based in Oxford and would prefer to sort collection rather than postage but I do have all the original packaging and could post as buyer's risk. Selling because I managed to get my hands on a Kafatek MC3.
  4. For Sale Compak F10 or K10 FRESH, 68 mm conical burrs. Mini hopper (it is even lower now, by me). Polished aluminium finish. Used only at home (me and the user on the forum: Viernes before I bought it). Works perfectly and it is in very good condition. 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 am buying Monolith grinder is for sale now. If you have any additional questions let me know and i am able to send any additional pictures. Payment is possible via PayPal or Bank Transfer I'm ready to sell it for (price reduced) £499 inc postage [/font]
  5. Hi Guys, I have a Gaggia Classic which is matched with a Compak K6 which has a doser. between me and my wife we drink a few cups of coffee a day and I feel i`m wasting alot of beans using the doser. It has a mini hopper also. I`m looking to sensibly/practically convert this to a doserless grinder. I have spent yesterday reading up on grinders and discovered the Niche Zero Grinder which looks perfect for my needs but I cant warrant the £500 upgrade cost when I'm told my K6 is a fantastic grinder. I have removed the doser today, which was a pretty simple task. I`ve read about buying funnels online. Is there a off the shelf option for me? Can I buy a funnel from one of the other manufacturers i.e. Mazzer? I`ve read about a possible chute option I'm not that handy, and wouldn't be able to make one, I wouldn't know where to start. There is also a small box above the exit hole which has a couple of wires connected to it, what can I do with this? See pictures attached on what the currents state is? Kindest Regards, and I do appreciate everybody's help? Mohammad [ATTACH=CONFIG]38254[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]38255[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]38256[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]38257[/ATTACH]
  6. I'm looking at some Compak options on ebay. Is it possible and easy to remove the dosers and convert to doserless?
  7. I've just taken delivery of an E8 from BB with red speed burrs. After running 1.5kg of coffee through I've started dialling in and I'm on about 10 on the scale which puts the adjustment arm around the back of the grinder. I'm not sure if the 0 mark has been set up as genuine zero. I have not got my head around the parallel system yet and I can't tell from the manual, my question is: can you adjust the orientation of the adjustment collar or is it fixed? The manual says it needs to line up with the locking shoe but until I take it apart I don't know if that can be moved as well. Also seems to be quite a gap between the adjustment collar and the grind regulator - is that normal? Any hints and tips appreciated. Maybe some bedding in and more experience required but I've not been blown away so far with the shots I've pulled compared to the same beans on my Mazzer Mini e.
  8. Had this since November. Grinder as had about 8 kilo through it and bought form BB last March paperwork was lost while in transit, and can be confirmed with BB, the machine only needs brew boiler seals doing, it leaks on warmup then seals it self. Had a full group head rebuild as well. And replaced the bottom half of the pressure valve. If anything did arise the price of this is a good price and I will gladly pay for the said item. 2. baskets 2. Portafilters. 1 tamper and Matt included. Some info is on my Postage shocker in the duetto thread £1100 Pick up only.
  9. Bought in 2012 from Brian Wogan in Bristol and only used for one cup of French press per day since then. Doesn’t come with standard hopper, it’s got a BW hopper instead. Good working order, just needs to go to a new home, moving in with GF and we need to streamline our possessions!! £150 collection only from Weston super Mare Pics now loaded.
  10. Hopefully doesn't need much introduction, but for sale is my E10 in the harder to find polished aluminium which commands a higher retail and is currently £1,779 at BB. Looking for £950 - collection preferred from E14 London. I do have the original box but it's currently in storage and I'll have this back by next week if it needs to be shipped. Purchased this through the forum new in December 2015 and has been used for one/two shots daily. Looking at the data its had 12kg run through it and 1540 shots. The only thing I've done is disconnect the fan but it can easily be plugged back into the circuit board. Photos below - let me know if there are any questions! The only reason for the sale is that I've now got a Monolith.
  11. Just on the off chance someone has one of these before I bite the bullet and order one direct from the states Many thanks in advance John
  12. Hi All, This grinder is surplus to demands. It was used in a busy'ish cafe of my mum and dads for about 2.5 years and has been in my house since, solely as a decaf grinder. So this is not my primary grinder and is way to nice to sit being used, currently no more than a few shots a month. I would say its in very good condition, circa 2013-14 grinder. With a few light marks but I would say in better condition than most for use and age. It has had regular services throughout it life as well as a burr change a couple years back. I would however say it needs a new set, however, I am not a burr expert but have striped it down and taken some photos. The only other bits to note that I can comment on is that it has no lower portafilter mount, however, as its been used on demand the portafilter was always just held and never caused an issue. Also, the seal on top of the mount has some wear, but again, easily replaced. I have considered changing the burrs, and have a contact at BB who can get these if needed, but in all fairness someone else may prefer to do this if they purchase as they can then stick a better redspeed burrset in if they wish. Total shot count is at just over 100k, but as I said, it was well used, but also well loved and looked after. It is a great grinder and a beast to use. Anyway, back to the point, what do you think its worth? Thanks all
  13. So.. in the Christmas spirit, I am prepping my wife for a grinder upgrade Having an F5 modded for OD, single dosing has its drawbacks and I would like to get an some improvement in the grind, with the hope I can taste the difference Anyway, space in the kitchen is at premium, so height is a bit of a problem, with our low units. Sill at the bottom only gives 39-40cm clearance, but if Id push the grinder in and still had good access, this could be 44-45cm. F5 currently lives in the corner so is pulled forward and not under the units. Another priority is ease of dialling beans in, with minimum waste. I would only be looking at espresso's, however it would be good if I could have flexibility of using it with a drip (no kit at the moment but you never know!) I was thinking about a Compak E5 or a Zenith 65e... I'd like to snap one up second hand, but if wife is in a good mood, I may think of a new one..Its likely to serve me for a good while anyway. BTW. Usage wise - about 250g a week on average, normally lighter roasts but I keep exploring.
  14. Hi all, I've been getting back into the wonderful world of filter coffee recently, and forgotten how much I enjoy using the V60/Aeropress, and thinking about upgrading the set up. My first question is if I use my espresso grinder (Compak K3) and just put it on a coarser setting, will this be better/worse than a specific filter grinder? Then if not and a specific filter grinder is the way to go, what would people recommend? Maybe around £100-£200 mark. I've read very good things about the Wilfa Svart that they made with Tim Wendelboe, does anyone have any experience with this? They seem to have good reviews, and relatively cheap. thanks! Rory
  15. I have been spending some time looking at getting my new londinium R and see that The compac E5 has been paired as a good choice for this machine, the next grinder up is twice the money and I am wondering if there is truly any benefit to spending the extra. i currently use a mazzer with my expobar Brutus but I'm fed up with the mess and fafh and hence a complete change over. I havent seen any negatives on the Londinium R machine and from what I have read they seem well made and reliable, I would welcome any feedback on this point. I Wasn't sure if I should post here or the grinder section so apologies if in the wrong place.
  16. Hello everyone, I managed to get myself an Elektra Semi Automatica and an Elecktra MSC Grinder package on eBay a couple of years ago. Really happy with the machine, but the grinder is a bit of a nuisance for a number of reasons. There is quite the mess created with retained grinds and static seems to be an issue. Also, the grind chute gets clogged regularly and grind retention seems to be a real issue on these grinders (for me anyway). I would like to upgrade to a non doser grinder to try and limit the general mess created by the Elektra grinder as well as upgrade to something better. Im relatively new to the coffee machine/grinder world so would appreciate any advice anyone may have. I have been reading up on different threads and checking prices (approx budget for new grinder would be £600-£800) and the Compak E5 and the Eureka 65e have both caught my eye. The Compak E8 also seems to get good reviews but might be a little out of my price range. I would appreciate any advice/direction where I should be looking at for an upgrade on my existing grinder. Thanks in advance.

  18. I have seen a K6 for sale that I am interested in. It's an older model that has seen a fair bit of use, so will need some TLC. Are there are any common failure points on these machines? I can see that most spares are available, apart from motor parts. Do they tend to suffer with motor/bearing issues, or problems where parts aren't available? From what I've read these grinders are a good value alternative to something like a Mazzer SJ? Is it safe to say that a well used commercial grinder will be a better longterm bet than something like a lightly used MC2, allowing for some repair/refurb work?
  19. Hi all, Due to a recent grinder upgrade spree, I have 2 of these grinders to offer up for sale to forum members prior to listing elsewhere. Both are separate sales, but listed them both in same thread for ease. Both grinders are in excellent condition, have had around 10-12kg put through them at most. In my setup I use one for Decaf and one for Regular, so they have both done the same weight of beans give or take. I'd argue they are barely seasoned yet, but they have produced great results for me and would be a great addition for anyone. They come with the standard hopper, and come in original boxes. Key features: 58mm flat burr grinder - a step up from a mignon Timed or manual dosing Timer can be adjusted on the dial on the front Stepless adjustment Cast body, very solid build quality Offering each grinder for £300 collected. They are currently £399each on BB website brand new. Based near Rayleigh in Essex. Many thanks [ATTACH=CONFIG]25363[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25364[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25365[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]25366[/ATTACH]
  20. 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.
  21. i spotted this when it was listed at 99p so i had a silly little bid on it to keep it in my lists, well my phone went with 10mins remaining and it was on 58quid so i bid 65 and won it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Compak-Coffe-Grinder-/282332577010?_trkparms=gh1g%3DI282332577010.N34.S2&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=bqCc6LnkMqSEmN9l675ViViuE8w%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc if the link doesnt work for you then eBay item number: 282332577010 the listing doesn't say much about it so i am unsure what model it is but it seems like a bargain for the price. feel free to weigh in with opinions and what i should check for as i will probably arrange to collect it. thanks guys282332577010
  22. Having sold my L1, I'm now looking to switch back to a flat burr grinder. Purchased this from dfk41 about a year ago who had just broken it in. It's only had about 33kg put through it. Please note that this sale is subject to the acquisition of a replacement, which is in the pipeline. Will be delivered in original box with full insurance. Pictures to follow!
  23. Due to a recent change of circumstances (the wife's still here I'm off the coffee for the foreseeable future and I was left with a few options: 1) Turn off the L1-P and grinder and leave them stood looking lonely for the next 4-6 months. 2) Sell them both. or 3) Sell the R120 and go for an OD one so the wife will still use the machine (she will not mess about weighing every two minutes I'm told). So I'm trying option 3 first. The r120 is every bit as good as I'd hoped for, but please note it is a weighty beast and tall to boot. In a home environment the burrs will out live you (rated for something insane like 12000kg). Other than the bag shaker being removed (as I'm told it wasn't the most pleasant thing to listen to) its in perfect condition and working order. Looking for £1,500. Collection only.
  24. NEW PRICE 850€ !! Compak K10 FRESH grinder. 68 mm conical burrs. Mini hopper. Polished aluminum finish. Have stains on the body, I don't know why. Only used at home. 950€. Shipping from Spain included. NEW PRICE 850€ !!
