Designed for instant, precise grinding, the Compak K-3 Touch Stepless Coffee Grinder is ideal for easy, professional grinding. With 58mm burrs, the Touch provides extremely consistent grinding.

The K-3 Touch employs an aluminum Uni-body housing, commercial-grade 58mm burr grinder, and single, double or continuous serving system. Precision-machined grinding burrs can be easily adjusted for 34 different degrees of fineness. The hopper holds 10 ounces of coffee beans and the dispensing chute is easy to clean.

As with all Compak grinders, the K-3 utilizes a mounted motor, wherein the motor is not fused with the housing. If the motor breaks down, it can be replaced without having to replace the whole grinder. The mounted motor also makes for quieter grinding, and most importantly, less heat transferred to the coffee grinds

Elegant and functionally designed, the K-3 Touch is designed to last.

Construction

This stepless coffee grinder grinds directly into the filter holder. The Compak stepless grinder is made of aluminum, measures 19.5(h) x 6.5(w) x 12(d) and weighs 20 lbs.

Grinding

The K3 Elite uses 58mm tempered steel, flat burrs using the traditional Italian method. The mounted motor makes for a quieter grinding experience and less heat transferred to the coffee grinds, making for more optimal shots.

Hopper

Store your beans in 10 oz. bean hopper constructed of durable Makrolon material.

Cleaning

There is a new version of this called "Compak K3 Touch Advanced Doserless Grinder". Do you have that?

Answer by Erik:

I apologize but we do not currently stock this version of the Compak K3. We are however working on getting it in.  Please check back for updates!

Does this come with any of those cleaning beans or anything? Or, is it just the grinder?

Answer by Sanfam:

These grinders do not come with any cleaning products unless they're offered as part of a package.  

Angel asked:

Questions not answered in the manual.

(1) As mentioned in one of the reviews, there is a little bit of "play" in the grind adjustment. I mean, there is some movement which doesn't feel like it is changing the setting while it takes quite a bit of force to move it outside this play. However, I have some evidence that the grind is actually changing with this soft movement because when I run the motor with no beans I can hear a very slight sound in the finer position within this play. The question is whether the grind setting is changing when moving the adjustment within this play.

(2) Does this grinder need to be calibrated? It has an absolute limit screw but can I trust that the grinder will not be damaged if I turn it to any setting down to the limit. I say down because that would be the finest position with the fear being that the burrs might be scraping.

Answer by techkathy:

1) The grind is not changing. The adjustment plate is threaded to the machine. So you are really only moving the burr up or down outside of this "play" area.
2) Any grinder should be periodically calibrated to ensure you are getting the proper grind. The grinder is calibrated at the factory so you usually won't have to do it right away.
