Thanks for all the great post !!! ...

K3 looks great and gives me some thing to think about ...


Yes all are messy but if the base is sloped down like a mazzer rather than a rossi its easyer and faster to clean up ( I have a cleaning company ) so thats why I'm big on this

The stark is rare and have never seen one so it would be a rush to have one sitting on my counter ... :-) but now with the other dream grinders posted .. WOW.... I feel like a kid in a candy store wanting big .. hahaha

1000 to 3000 is unreal at this time .. But I'm all about dreams and goals .. It took me 27 years and I know have the very best you can buy with the tools of my trade ..

So I BIG maybe on one of those grinders some day ..

doser or doserless I'm still unsure .. I wish I could use and then decide .. All I know is doser ..

For now I just want better and maybe some thing thats looks cool sitting next to my maker .. here is a pic

as soon as I have more time . I'll spend it here ready and learning more ..

Yes.  (I think so.)

Then again, a Baratza Vario does the same thing for only $450 . . .

 
A morning without coffee is sleep . . .

I love My Compak K3 'Touch'
Doserless, the only way to go for home
Great grinds
Easy to make fine adjustments
Easy to keep base clean, also removable tray
Even has spout that flips, to clean out grounds

You can contact Wega direct and get a Wega 6.8 conical, i.e. a rebadged Compak K10 conical, for $800 shipped. That is an absolute steal with both the Wega 6.8 conical and Compak K10 retailing for $1,350 on the cheapest sites online. I just got mine earlier this week. My girlfriend and I were doing side-by-sides shots on a few of my levers (mainly the Conti Prestina and PID'd Peppina) with my Wega 6.8 conical, Cimbali Junior (64mm flat burrs) and Mazzer Major (83mm flat burrs). Without question the shots coming from the coffee ground in the Wega were smoother with less bite (I was intentionally using an acidic Costa Rican I roasted last weekend to see which controlled the acidity the best). I have no idea how long that deal will be around, so if you re interested you might want to jump on it.

I know it is above the $500 stated in the thread title, but felt it was worth noting none the less. It would also allow you to produce much better shots than the Mazzer Stark many above have mentioned due to it's much lower burr RPM of 400 versus the Starks 1050. And 68mm conical burrs are far superior to 83mm flats. Not to mention it is almost half the price at the moment.
