Hey Eddie or anyone else! What would you say to the differences on the Rocky and Mini or maybe Macap grinder? Still looking around at grinders! My TV came friday and have enjoyed it fully from it's first cup that came out! I know it can get better and better but that road is paved with $$$'s. Best thing was the TV came at the right time so I can use it as a X-mas gift sort of thing if you know what I mean, now to find a grinder then maybe after that a roaster. I think im getting carryed away like a kid in a candy store LOL ! Thanks Eddie in NJ!

The Rancilio Rocky is a very competent, well-built grinder that will last you a long time; replacement burrs are readily available.  Call the vendors for the price because these units have a minimum advertised price.  Stepping up from the Rocky requires significant steps in cost as well, that you may be able to put toward having the freshest coffee possible.

Not if you go used.

I got my Mazzer Mini off Ebay for $305.  It is lightly used and grinds like new.
