Bottom Line: For a first or only grinder it will do it all for years faily well
Berhouz Abedian (quality: 9.0) 01.08.2012 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Excellent  grinder, but needs periodic cleaning. The design and the plastic materials can be improved.
Cremina Fan 01.03.2011 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Excellent lifetime purchase. Have the doser? See Detailed Commentary on simple way to keep it swept clean!
Henry Townsend (quality: 1.8) 05.03.2010 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Makes good coffee,  but the machine broke down too quickly and it is taking far too long to get repaired.
Jonathan Ewing 09.22.2009 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Beautiful, simplistic design.  Consistent Grind.
Michael Owen (quality: 1.0) 07.31.2009 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: A grinder with plenty of power and grind settings.
Jerome Harrison (quality: 7.3) 07.22.2008 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Looks good on the counter, but cannot produce a reliable grind.  Pass on this grinder.
Endo Smith (quality: 7.1) 07.09.2008 Rating: 6.0
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) 06.17.2008 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This is the starting point for good burr grinders, don't settle for less.
Nic Miller-Clendon (quality: 7.7) 06.04.2008 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: A solid machine that lives up to the hype - don't bother with the doser!
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.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.0) 05.14.2008 Rating: 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) 03.07.2008 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Fantastic, Reliable, Dependable, Simple to Opperate.
Mike G (quality: 7.5) 03.07.2008 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: $300 is a lot for a coffee grinder, but I'm happy with the purchase!
Ward Strong (quality: 7.3) 01.19.2008 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: The grinder makes the espresso, and the Rocky does it with style.
Darren L. (quality: 7.8) 04.10.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder
S Hanson (quality: 7.0) 01.01.2007 Rating: 7.4
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) 06.29.2006 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Quality you can rely on at a a price which is right - but go the doserless model!
George Feil (quality: 7.0) 01.17.2006 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: perfect grind, with a few catches
Paul Pikowsky (quality: 7.0) 11.13.2005 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Beauty and performance for the home espresso grinder
