Rocky is good....but

I had a Rocky for years, teamed with an Expobar twin boiler and a Giotto Rocket espresso machine.
Being a chronic GAS victim (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) I made an upgrade to the Compak K3 Touch grinder. The difference was obvious and immediate. The first shot was a huge improvement over the Rocky. I didn’t believe such a difference was possible, but there you have it. The non removable hopper on the Rocky was often annoying. Friends with Mazzer grinders say I’d gain nothing upgrading from the Compak to a Mazzer. But they’re both way ahead of the good old Rocky.

Perfect quality coffee grind

I purchased the Rancilio Silvia coffee machine and Rocky grinder on 15.09.2018 and I am completely satisfied with both machines.
The Rocky grinder is multi adjustable and I have adjusted it once in two years using several different beans from different roasters in Melbourne. The grind appears to be consistent as the coffee is of a consistent quality. I buy strong flavoured beans and find that the best flavour is from slightly under filling the group for single and two cups of coffee.
As the machine wears I will be able to return to Coffee A Roma in Malvern East, Victoria and purchase new components. Both machines are of a high standard of build and they are very good quality and so very simple to use. Show details

10 years on

Had the Rocky doserless for 10 years now and it hasn’t missed a beat. Consistent grind each and every time. Would not even consider another grinder if/when it comes time to replace. Show details

Grinds coffee well!

We bought this after purchasing a coffee machine to grind our own coffee as the grinded version was not working for us. Took a few goes to get the grind right for the machine, once we were there it all works well together. I do find the coffee grounds are dispensed inconsistently, however this isn't a big issue.

Flawless for 4 years

Bought alongside the Rancilio Silvia V3. It works flawlessly. Haven't needed to change the blades after an estimated 800 cups of coffee made. Sometimes the blades rotate without the beans getting ground, but a gentle tap will fix that. Overall very pleased and a great investment if you're a regular coffee drinker.

Excellent

This is a semi-professional grinder that will do for most home uses and amateur barristers. I've been using it for over a year with no problems at all.
Excellent grinder for home. Has enough steps to get the correct grind (can be made stepless with modification). Absolute workhorse. Good consistency of grind. Probably not as good as the Mazza mini, but (in Australia) much cheaper.
As mentioned - sometimes doesn't feed beans and requires slight tap on side. Also, not as easy to clean as I expected.

Good

Good to excellent grinder. Proof will be in length of life but control of grind is excellent and surprisingly quiet for a grinder so you can make early morning coffee without too much noise. Very good but doesnt stand out like the Silvia
very good
sometimes does not feed beans and needs talking to..not serious
