It was getting there with a bit more in the basket and a coarser grind.  Like any new component to coffee it will take a bit of time, the user needs to learn, the burrs need to bed.  one day it will just happen!

Lovely grinder though, and made to last by the look of it! :)

Well, after my Amanti saga...

Just joined the club with a K10. Upgraded from a Macap M4. I genuinely can't believe the difference the grinder makes. Shots are a lot more consistent with a great deal complex flavour!

Have a few bits coming in the mail for some mods! :D

Congrats TBF on the K10  :thumb:
A quality grinder certainly makes a desirable difference in the cup and a big conical ticks most of the boxes for the taste profile our taste buds prefer

Good to hear Tim,

still crankin along with the HG one

Got a couple of bits of alloy angle and screwed the grinder down to the bench so now I can grind with one hand and no movement.

I am still not convinced about the bigger burr thing as yet,

I am getting some great coffee, but I was before with the little 38mm burr Rosco too.

Congratulations Mate!  That is a phenomenal grinder.    :thumb: I hope you had help moving it!  :rofl:

Sad that another cafe has hit the wall... I can't believe the number of people who still think its a thoroughly exploitable  business option.  If I had a dollar for everyone who told me my coffee was unbeatable and that if I opened a cafe I'd make a killing... I wouldn't need to open a cafe ;)

And I remember you telling me to lift it KK... to really appreciate the solidity and quality of the beast.

Thanks Brett but the pain my back felt was masked by the excitement of finally owning a BNZ conical grinder. I have to thank KK for the couple of tips regarding slight modifications. 1. Remove that silly tamper.
                                                                                                     2. Removing the auto hopper fill switch.
Thanks to you KK for your invaluable tips.

Regards

Trooper

Great to hear of another MD74 out there!

Where was that cafe, Melb CBD? A friend of mine contemplated a few sites but when he mentioned the rent I checked on my pic! The story was corroborated by another friend who owned a sandwich bar, his rent got jacked up forcing him to leave.

So... first impressions?

Hope hours is doing the job MOQ.  Did you ever get any joy out of your new Compak K3 with the overly mobile collar?

My BNZ is performing very well thanks Brett. Of course the usual domestic reservations of massive grind retention (fixed by removing the auto-stop and making custom sweep paddles & brushes). Producing very satisfying shots. Going to cafes is often a let down!

Short answer on the K3 - no

Long answer - I delivered it to the importer at MICE, I thought I'd give them some time to let the dust settle from the expo. I forgot about it until last week so I will send a polite query to jog their memory.

I've joined the club as of yesterday, although today was my first chance to run a coffee through it.

It's the new Compak E10 Conic OD. Similar to the K10 Fresh, but with a more standard profile and grind adjustment.

So far it's crazy fast, very, very quiet and brings out flavour I didn't think possible.

Love the big conical.... Congratulations!  Is it like the A8 in that you can lift a lid to sweep the chute??  I'd love an electronic conical but the inability to easily do a chute sweep makes them awkward in my low-volume home environment.

Not sure yet Brett, I'll check on it first chance I get. I'm not sure how much it's retaining, but I do know that if I keep the grind going a few secs longer after the bulk of it is in the PF, a big clump or two will fall out. Seems to be about right.

I'll be switching to an Acai scale soon to find out.

Nice looking grinder Kelsey, I found the Compak's to be very good grinders. I am sure this will be a long term resident on the bench!

Watching with interest, really liking the look of this grinder. Even better it can take the short gourmet hopper for the K3.
