    siliva and rocky road grinder and compak K3

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all

    I just did the coffee course with jetblack and it was great! I tried the lelit combi and had a little play with the silvia. Personally i am going for the silivia as i thought the grinder and milk frother better on the silvia.

    Quick question about the rocky rd grinder compared with compak k3. Shall i spend the extra 150 dollars to upgrade to compak 3. i am still relatively new with coffee making at home... will it make much difference in taste?

    I had a similar choice when I was deciding between the rocky and a mazzer. decided to spend the extra $300 as the grinder will last through the inevitable machine upgrade later on. compak and mazzer will suit machines further up the scale where the rocky might look a little out of place. having said that, when you do upgrade later a rocky & silvia combo will still get a good price second hand.

    Hi Oreochiu,

    Glad you enjoyed the course on the weekend! To re-cap main differences for you between the Rocky no doser & the Compak K3 Touch:
    • Rocky ND has 50mm burrs - K3T has 58mm burrs
      Rocky ND is a stepped grinder - K3T is stepless (easier to fine-tune)
      The hopper is removable on the K3T for easy cleaning
      The Rocky ND is a grind on demand grinder - The K3T has a grind on demand option plus a timed dosing option

    We are more than happy to help if you would like to discuss these 2 grinders in more detail. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

    Debbie

    Yep, given that youve done the course with JetBlack and they have some good deals on the Silvia/Rocky combo, I think it would be wise to purchase from someone you have already developed a good relationship with.

    Cheers!
