Used price for a k10 pro barista

Recommended Posts

Hello - I wanted to gauge views from Compak owners as to what a second hand K10 should be worth. I’ve listed mine in the adverts section of the forum for £500 but haven’t had any interest as yet. Not in any great rush to sell but keen to understand if I am unintentionally off with my pricing... Any thoughts much appreciated. Cheers.

As they are about £1400 new, I think £500 is fair. Is it version with a doser? From what I have seen over the years it can take a while to sell a dosered (is that a word?) grinder.

Coffee. Because murder is wrong.

I'd be inclined to say no chance on a grinder with a doser on even on Ebay. A cafe might buy one like that complete but dosers are even getting rare there.

Marks reduce the price even more. My electronic robur didn't cost that much.

Try United Barista Marketplace. They sell to cafes and public.

Thanks, all. Much appreciated. 

Yes, it has a doser. The funny thing is, whilst intended for cafes, the doser is actually excellent for single dosing. I know it sounds odd but I found very much that the act of grinding into the dosing chamber and then sweeping it through into the portafilter helped to take out clumps without much (if any) need for RDT. Scott Rao observes the same thing in one of his books on espresso. 

Thanks again for the replies.

Some people do a clean sweep mod on them. Polythene I think to improve the action of the sweeper. Never seen any precise problems

Lack of clumps from dosers has been mentioned but not much on here. Fashion rears it's head and of course the electronic ones cost more so must be better and highly desireable ;) even when getting them to dose very consistently doesn't always work out. It did one one for me by going cafe style and only ever using one type of bean but it still needed small timer adjustments now and again and lots when I first started working like that.

I think the other problem is Niche = £500. Solo £100 less but IMHO not the equal of Niche.
