The standard answer, regardless of equipment, is "fine enough to produce 2 oz. in 25 seconds." The problem is that no two Rocky grinders, or two of really any grinder, will have precisely the same calibration, so there's no use in recommending an exact setting. Not to mention different beans/blends at different ages, and even different altitudes, will pull differently, and thus need to be ground differently. The best anyone can recommend is a starting point, which may or may not be somewhere in the appropriate range for your use. I have never used a Rocky, so unfortunately I cannot help you there, but somebody else can chime in shortly, I imagine. Best of luck, welcome to CoffeeGeek!

First find your "zero". Start at 20, then with the machine running (and empty) carefully turn to lower numbers until you hear the burrs touching/grinding. That's the smallest you'll want to go.
For espresso, start with 2-3 clicks above that. In my experience, espresso grinding will vary from 1-5 above your zero point. Then, assuming ALL VARIABLES ARE EQUAL, adjust from there. Note that on the Rocky, your "perfect" spot tends to end up between numbers. Either try one of the available mods, or live with it.
