Detailed Commentary

This unit has met all my goals when I bought it.  I was originally looking at the Rocky, but decided for home use the Solis would meet my needs.

I have had no problems grinding fine enough for my Brasilia Lady espresso machine.  Also, the doser like dispenser allows me to grind only what I need with no wastage.

Overall, this unit has met all my needs and the simple usability make it a perfect machine for the novice home user who demands quality.  Choose the red if you want to save money and have a great show piece.

Buying Experience

Green Beanery were extremely helpful and actually stirred me away from the Rockey as my use is daily morning espresso and weekends
