Okay - I did it... I've ordered a doserless Rocky. Now all I can do is wait... the long and torturous wait... ;) I am looking forward to the improvement the Rocky is sure to bring to my espresso. I currently use one of the new-generation Zass grinders and haven't been totally thrilled with it. I am hopeful that I'll have a new degree of consistency and speed that will make my habit... er espresso... even better and faster. With any luck, I will get the package this Friday - I really hope I don't have to go the weekend without it. Anyway... thank you to everyone who weighed in on my request for advice on whether to get the doser. I ended up going doserless because I rarely make more than two doubles at a time and will be switching beans and grind semi-frequently. I think the more compact profile will also fit my available space better. Has anyone with a Rocky considered modifying the 'snout' to hinge and spring load it so that it can be lifted to give access to the grind chute? Not having seen anything other than some pictures, I don't know if this is viable... just contemplating. LarryD
Hi Larry, The best thing you can do to introduce Rocky into your home is get some roasting going right now, and rest it for 4 days... What treats will await you on Friday...
