Hi
I want to know if you can help. I want to buy a grinder for home. My
old one is a Sunbeam EMO480 conical burr. I am looking at the Rancilio
Rocky Doserless or Baratza Vario burr grinder. I mainly drink espresso
and have a Compak K3 that I use at work but I thinks its a bit big for
home. i want  a decent tuneable grinder. Can you help with any
suggestions or hints please
Regards
Noel

New? Used? Commercial or home only? Price?

Check your local news papers, want add papers, Craigs list,  used restaurant supply houses, restaurant salvage yards, the BST forum here and on other coffee sites.

In short, you will find them where you find them but you need to really get out there and look. Rocky has seen better days, his steps are fairly wide for most people here. He used to represent a good value but now grinders such as the Vario have pretty much passed him by.
