HI currently I am planing to buy an electric grinder to replace my old hario mini. My budget is $300.00. I have looked around and found that the rocky and the virtuoso preciso are in that price. Which one should I buy? Also, if there is any other that I have miss please let me know.
Its going to be uses for espresso, paired to a gaggia classic, but thinking of upgrading the machine in the future.

Hi, I'm deciding on a grinder to cover the French Press, pour-over portion of my medium roast coffee consumption. My research on the Preciso leads me to believe it would be ideal for me in terms of grind control, covering espresso well, also. However, I'm finding multiple reliability/quality complaints in different forums. I looked at the Rocky quite a bit when I went for the Mazzer mini. Not having touched either grinder, I would vote for the Rocky. If any further posters can chime in on my ideal grinder, I would be appreciative! Mike
