    To Grab Compak K3 Touch or Cambili Cadet ??

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello CSers.

    Not sure this is correct forum to place this question.

    Have a chance to grab either used Compak K3 Touch (good condition 2 years old home used) OR La [s]Cambili[/s] Cimbali Cadet (10 years old ex-cafe need cleaning but still work ok, no missing part)? Can get them at about the same price (~$300..)

    What would be our CSers choice? Cambili to me is commercial with bigger flat burr?? but concern about its age. Compak K3 T got lots of good reviews?? *Which one or grab both :)


    Please help.

    Hi Charles

    Welcome to CS I dont know about the Cambili as I have never used one but the Compak K3 I have and they are a great grinder and smaller foot print compared to a commercial unit I would think..For that price you could have both :)

    Cheers Gra..

    Last minute advice please,

    Any reason to get 2 big grinders at home?
    To me, I dont think anyone will own more than a grinder at home (except small grinder for plunger / drip) :)

    Am I crazy if take both of them.

    Cheers,
    C

    If one fails you have a back up.
    You can use one for decaf when people are around and you dont want to purge a grinder.
    One grinder may have a different effect on taste in the shot.
    If you are a nice person and one of your friends in getting into coffee you can lend one to them so they can experience the difference between preground and fresh grind.

    Or maybe I am just justifying why I have more then one big grinder at home. ;D
