A prosumer level espresso grinder that has been on the market since 1991. Grinder has seen changes cosmetically since introduction, now featuring steel side panels. Features professional burrs and motor inside. At $380 (Feb '09) the price is on the high side.
Henry Townsend (quality: 1.8)
Bottom Line: Makes good coffee, but the machine broke down too quickly and it is taking far too long to get repaired.
Greg Haggard (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Not perfect, but the problems are periferal. The grind this machine produces is top notch.
Grant Watt (quality: 5.4)
Bottom Line: Perfectly matched to the Siliva. Look no further.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.0)
Bottom Line: Despite a few frustrating quirks, this grinder can grind - consistently and at a fair price. In the end, this is what a grinder needs to do. There are better grinders out there, but they also cost more. Simple as that.
George Wachsmuth (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: On the whole this was an excellent buy and I recommend the Rocky highly to anyone looking to purchase a very useable, espresso grinder.
George Feil (quality: 7.0)

Bottom Line: Good grinder, fragile construction
Endo Smith (quality: 7.1)
Bottom Line: There is a real need for a simple, solid grinder in the $300 range that fits between the cheaper Baratza models and the more expensive Mazzers. Unfortunately, the Rocky is not it.
Ed Lamoreaux (quality: 4.5)
Bottom Line: BEST unit for the price, despite design problem!
E M Long (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Worth every penny. For the vacpot brewer,especially, it will be a revelation.

David Marley (quality: 6.4)
Bottom Line: A worthy grinder with only a few nuances to get around.
