The F10 is a mind-boggling product. It's quiet and smooth sounding.
The grinds look and feel uniform, with no clumping, and the shot-to-shot timing and flow bear that out.
I get extreme consistent results with no effort. Getting dialed in is easy, and minor adjustments for variations the beans are a breeze.
Getting the hang of the menu on the digital touch screen was tricky. Compak needs to improve its instructions.
The flavor portrait is consistent with what other reviewers have to say about big conical grinders. The espresso tastes mellow and rich, more so than with my previous grinders, a Mazzer Major and a Cimbali Max Hybrid.
Paying more than two grand for a coffee grinder is insane, but frankly, I have zero buyers remorse. This grinder is the cats meow. I'm in seventh espresso heaven.
