Bottom Line: Not perfect, but the problems are periferal. The grind this machine produces is top notch.
David M Strom (quality: 5.5) 01.23.2000 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: A great grinder at a good price. You NEED a great grinder to get even decent espresso, and Rocky fits the bill.
Mark Harris (quality: 5.5) 10.24.2001 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: The Rocky costs more than many are willing  to pay.  But like so many things in the marketplace,  you get what you pay for:  Reliability and Quality.

Mike Wright (quality: 4.8) 11.25.2001 Rating: 10.0

Bottom Line: great machine for the money
Richard Wolfson (quality: 4.4) 11.08.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: As advertised -- get over your fears of spending real money for a grinder and pull the trigger.  Go doserless. You won't be sorry.
Scott Smith (quality: 4.3) 09.16.2004 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder if you buy the doserless unit.
Becky Grimsrud (quality: 4.3) 11.20.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price, but do yourself a favour and go for top-of-the-line.
Andre Preoteasa (quality: 4.0) 01.12.2005 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Drop another $100 on a Mazzer and forget the Rocky if you're serious about espresso.
Galpi (quality: 4.0) 10.25.2001 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: Good grinder, fragile construction
Scott Glass (quality: 4.0) 05.17.2008 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: If your serous about your coffee, buy it, I dont think you will be disappointed.    I would like to add that buying high quality products that last for years do not contribute to our growing waste problem.
