I've owned this grinder for several years. Perhaps they've improved the design, but on my version, oily beans get stuck in the feed mechanism. I have to keep a thin rubber spatula nearby to push the beans into the grinder. This is really unacceptable for an expensive machine.

Posted Tue Jun 24, 2003, 2:27pm Subject: Downscale from Rocky
I thought I'd found a grinder with a doser at Amazon recently, but when I back for a second look it was gone. While I don't believe that the Capressa's (or whatever it was) of this world belong on the same page with Rancilio Rocky, do you know of another doser grinder at the low end?
I need help. I have a Rocky that needs a new bottom base as the front portion of it was broken off in transit. Does anyone out there know of a dealer that sells such a part? I would appreciate the info very much.
Got my new Rocky (doserless) yesterday. I also found the zero point without removing the screw, it was located at +1. turned the dial back 7 clicks and tried my first shot. It totally choked my Francis X3. Bought new beans today (Molinari) and succesfully found a position(14-16 on the dial) where I can pull a perfect double in 25 sec with a lot of nice rich dark crema. If I set it to 11-12 it will result in a 1oz ristretto.
This is a huge step forward in my coffee addiction. I used a Braun low-en burr grinder until now and could not get a good shot with that one (fast running with very blond crema).
