  • The Compak is a stepless mill, with continuous grind adjustment. I find that you need to rotate the top very slightly to effect a change in grind. I personally don't love the faint numbering and marks of the grind setting.
  • The chute design one the Touch is simple and effective. It has a grind release push lever to knock out any residual grinds between the burr and the chute. It also functions as a switch to activate the grind timer (see below).
  • The hopper is fairly standard. It is somewhat low in form (they call it the "mini-hopper"), since the mills are designed to fit under standard countertop cabinets. The height of both models is 16.5 inches.
  • The machine is designed for 2 minutes of use, and 10 minutes of rest, to ensure that the motor doesn't heat up the coffee, and for the life of the motor and burrs. This is standard for home units, but we warn you, this is not for continuous operation. It'

Quick Overview

The K3 Touch is Compak's doserless model. This means that, more or less, the grinds fall straight from the burrs into your portafilter. The advantage here is that there's no doser to trap old, stale grounds.


Also, it's much easier to grind into a container (if grinding for brewed coffee) with this machine than with the K3 Elite. The tradeoff is that your espresso grind will have more clumps than with a doser grinder, so you'll have to be more careful to properly distribute grinds in the portafilter basket.


The K3 Touch features:
*A doserless design, for easy cleaning and dual espresso and brewed coffee use
*An optional-use timer. The grinder has a manual mode and a timer to automatically control dosing. The timer isn't perfect (less dense beans will grind faster, so time doesn't equal dose), but it's a good start.
*0.6lb / 275g hopper capacity
*Commercial 58mm flat burrset, with a grinding rate of 11-15 pounds/hour
*Stepless, micrometrical grind adjustment
*
dimensions: 19.5" x 6.5" x 12" (heigh x width x depth)
*Attractive, comes in black or polished aluminum
*1 year warranty on parts and labor.
