    Compak K5 price check

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys,

    What would a Compak Diamond K5 grinder in good condition be worth?

    Its hard to get a guide to their value, the K3s are common and obviously the K6s & K10s are in a different class.

    Parts for K5 are generally no problem.

    Challenge of the K5 is its large size and very small burrs, making it look the goods, but quite slow.

    Best purpose is use as a decaffe grinder.

    Really?? I would have thought 60mm burrs were fine, my commercial grinder only has slightly bigger burrs at 64mm

    Anyway, any thoughts on the value?

    Hi galumay. i purchased a k5(new) about 6 years ago and it cost me from memory $650.00. so if you can work out depreciation on that over when they last stop making them gives you a round about figure.

    I upgraded to a k10 and in comparison the k5 is very very slow.
    Hope that helps.
