    Wega grinders

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

    in my quest for a grinder i have come across so much info.

    Can someone tell me whether the wega grinders are really re badged compaks? If so what is the wega equivalent to the compak k3 touch?

    Re: Wega grinders

    I did some research and found they seem to be very similar in quality and specs.. I picked up a wega 6.8 konik for 350 on the bay of evil...I think because it wasnt a compak k10 no one wanted it...But Im sure sponsors will be able to tell you for sure...

    Wega 5.8 instant...

    The Wega is a re-badged Compak - identical in specs, performance and price.

    In fact the Wega Mini Instant 5.8 comes with a K3T instruction manual 8-)

    The Wega grinder has typically used a push of the group handle on a button rather than the tongue activation of local K3T/P grinders. The very first batch of K3P were also button activated. Either is fine and all are great grinders for the spend.

    My Wega uses the tongue or the button ;)
