Burr meets the bean, clumps are gone, and your money isn't.
Positive Product Points
It's a compact highly adjustable dynamo. The conical burrs are fantastic and produce a fine espresso grind without clumping.
Negative Product Points
The lighweight burrs, price and size make it feel cheap. The lack of burr weight makes it feel like the little thing is struggling. The adjuster is so fine you would literally crank it for hours trying to move from coarse to fine grind. I'm not sure how coarse it goes, but this is for one grind style only. So don't try and do espresso and then French press.
It only costs 200 bucks, how could a good grinder cost 200 bucks? The initial price point makes it a "cheapo" grinder-right? Well I dumped my Rocky within minutes after this diminutive grinder showed Rocky how it's done. The Rocky has a sturdy, solid feel, and good looks, but I now finally get no clump grinding. I had to do every anti clump technique with Rocky, and now just grind and pull.
Out of the box you think you were taken as it's light and feels cheap. Rev it up, and you are sure you threw your money away. Dial, and I mean dial (it takes endless full turns to get to espresso) you finally are rewarded with a fine consistent grounds. This fine grinding means ultimate adjustment. I would say 2-3 full turns equall one Rocky click. Easy to dial in for temp, humidity, and bean changes.
I matched this to my Anita and have never looked back.
1st line had a good deal and the event was smooth and easy. They have replacement burrs as well.
