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.
Bottom Line: For a first or only grinder it will do it all for years faily well
Berhouz Abedian (quality: 9.0)
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder, but needs periodic cleaning. The design and the plastic materials can be improved.
Bottom Line: Excellent lifetime purchase. Have the doser? See Detailed Commentary on simple way to keep it swept clean!
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.
Bottom Line: Beautiful, simplistic design. Consistent Grind.
Michael Owen (quality: 1.0)
Bottom Line: A grinder with plenty of power and grind settings.
Jerome Harrison (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: Looks good on the counter, but cannot produce a reliable grind. Pass on this grinder.
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.
Richard Ross (quality: 5.5)
Bottom Line: This is the starting point for good burr grinders, don't settle for less.
Nic Miller-Clendon (quality: 7.7)
Bottom Line: A solid machine that lives up to the hype - don't bother with the doser!
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.
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.
John Trefethen (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: Fantastic, Reliable, Dependable, Simple to Opperate.
Mike G (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: $300 is a lot for a coffee grinder, but I'm happy with the purchase!
Ward Strong (quality: 7.3)
Bottom Line: The grinder makes the espresso, and the Rocky does it with style.
Darren L. (quality: 7.8)
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder
S Hanson (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: Best pro-level grinder in this price range (get the doserless, not the doser, model--even though doser looks better)
Patrick Sloane (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Quality you can rely on at a a price which is right - but go the doserless model!
George Feil (quality: 7.0)
Bottom Line: perfect grind, with a few catches
Paul Pikowsky (quality: 7.0)
