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.
Greg Haggard (quality: 5.7)
Bottom Line: Not perfect, but the problems are periferal. The grind this machine produces is top notch.
David M Strom (quality: 5.5)
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)
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.
Richard Ross (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: This is the starting point for good burr grinders, don't settle for less.

Richard Wolfson (quality: 4.4)
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)
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder if you buy the doserless unit.
Becky Grimsrud (quality: 4.3)
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price, but do yourself a favour and go for top-of-the-line.
Andre Preoteasa (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: Drop another $100 on a Mazzer and forget the Rocky if you're serious about espresso.
Galpi (quality: 4.0)
Bottom Line: Good grinder, fragile construction
Scott Glass (quality: 4.0)
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.
