A grinder with plenty of power and grind settings.
Positive Product Points
This grinder has plenty of power to do the job for any coffee desired. The Rocky is well built and heavy. The stainless sides are a nice cosmetic feature.
Negative Product Points
Does not work at all with a pressurized portafilter.
Purchased this grinder to use with my soon to be Silvia v3 (ordered today) Currently I'm using a Starbucks Barista and with the pressurized portafilter, it won't fit into the doser. Stupid me, I should have thought about this before I ordered the doser. Needless to say, the doserless would have been a better choice. I received this grinder yesterday and ground my first espresso beans today. What a great grinder. Lots of power and tons of grinder settings. You sure can't go wrong with this grinder and I would not hesitate to recommend this grinder. However, I believe the doserless would be the better choice of a Rocky.
Ordered from 1st-Line, good experience. Received the grinder in less than a week and got the free shipping. Would recommend 1st-Line to anyone.
Three Month Followup
After using the Rocky at least five times a week for the past 3 months, the Rocky is everything you could want in a well-built grinder. After getting my Silvia v3 and dialing in the Rocky, it is a perfect match, producing some of the nicest crema you can imagine. I am very happy with the Rocky and even the doser version. I would not hesitate to buy another Rocky but might opt for the doserless next time.
