I am the original owner--bought Rocky in January 2006 and used it until May 2008 when I packed up my espresso machine (third child born and finding little time to dedicate to good coffee). As a result, Rocky went pretty much unused until about 3 months ago when I started making espresso again. I have been fortunate enough to be able to upgrade so Rocky is looking for a new home. I'd guess it has probably ground between 50-75 lbs. of coffee in its lifetime. I gave her periodic thorough cleanings (complete disassembly of burr carriers/hopper to scrub the burrs, vacuum out all stale coffee and debris from cleaning), including yet another tonight. I also just recently replaced the front chute (original cracked) and overall, it's in great shape--no damage, only minor scuff marks on the front tray from everyday use. I've never used it but will throw in a bottle of Grindz as well. I'm also selling my Expobar Office Pulser incase anyone is interested in a package deal.
Buyer pays shipping unless you live close by and would like to do a local pickup.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
P.S. Also, in the attached pic you'll see a white cover. I can't recall where I purchased it from but on the advice of a fellow CG member years ago, it was recommended as a great way to clear remaining grinds from the burr chamber and chute. It's the top to a tupperware type contain that forms an airtight seal on Rocky's hopper. When you pinch the 2 gray handles, the cover changes shape allowing for easier removal/insertion of the cover. If you only slightly squeeze the handles, it allows you to use the cover much like a plunger and force air down through the grinder and thus expelling most remaining grinds. You may not want to use it but I found it much more convenient than trying to work a brush up Rocky's chute to clear the remaining grinds and I have no use for it without Rocky so it's also included in the sale.
