Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Broomfield, CO United States  
Best grinder I’ve ever owned...quiet, super fast and consistent.  The manual isn’t great and the adjustment collar is perhaps a little too sensitive, but once it’s dialed-in this grinder provides consistent static-free grinds right into the portafilter.   I especially appreciate having 3 separately programmed settings for single, double and triple shots.

As good as it gets September 26, 2018
Reviewer: David H from Springfield , MO United States  
I have had the Compak E5 now for about a year. Impressed to the point that I could not imagine looking for anything else, ever. Grinding used to be something I would fuss over. With the E5 I don't even think about it any longer. I programmed the three settings for 6, 6.5 and 7 seconds, and have to change the fineness usually between zero and 4 on the marks, and that is it. Either a bit more grind by time or a small adjustment on the fineness and new coffee is dialed it.  

It did take some time to get the portafilter holder with the perfect amount of force to hold but not hold too hard as you can double bump the switch and no way to shut it off. But that is a minor concern. A spring detent would be a great upgrade here in the future from Compak, but now that it is set, it is not an issue.

I also love the pulse grind with the grind button. If the time you set is not enough, just touch it for a bit more to round off.

To me, this is a perfect grinder.

Great for the Prosumer September 26, 2018
Reviewer: ELLE from THOUSAND OAKS, CA United States  
Outstanding grinder. Perfect for Prosumer home use. Not too large to seem overwhelming in a kitchen. Fits underneath my counter with the shortened hopper. Simple and easy to use. Smooth dialing operation to set 25 grind levels. Cleanup is very easy as the tray is removable to clear out residual grinds.
Chris's Coffee patiently answered my 'new unit' concerns when I called since I had a bad experience with another Vendor. Unit arrived new and exactly as described on their website.  Highly recommend this grinder!

Commercial Grade Powerhouse September 26, 2018
Reviewer: Perry C from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA United States  
We have been using a Forte AP, but felt it was time to allow the Forte to handle the espresso & coffee grinding at our second home and get a higher level espresso grinder to better match the pressure profiling capabilities of our Vesuvius.  One special need is for fairly frequent single dosing.  After much research, the Compak E5 really appeared  more than capable of meeting all our needs. So far very impressed.  Very high quality, very fast, quiet, and  the optional metal single dose shot cup/hopper is ingenious and also of high quality.  No bean hopping, no clumping, 3 customizable shot timers, and finite adjustability coupled with perhaps the best portafilter holder on any grinder.  As always, Chris was very helpful with good solid advice.
