Topic: Question about Rocky (5 msgs / 136 lines)
1) From: Wendy Sarrett
I've had my Rocky for several years and I'm finding that the beans don't 
always go through, especially very dark beans.  I have to shake it to 
get the beans moving.  Any hints???? Should I run some dry rice though 
it to clean it out??

Dark roasts are challenging for grinders (oil).  Keep them clean; use 
minute rice, not regular rice.

Thanks for the tips!   I suspected that.  I'll go pick up some minute 
rice then.

Hi Wendy,
The minute rice thing works.  I have used it after trying to grind some =
beans with hazelnuts mixed in.  By the way don't try that trick.
One other thing which helps greatly is some sort of piston plunger. Mine =
is inspired by the one made by George aka caffeeguy (sp?) on the =
coffeegeek forum. other folks have used Click-Clack lids and even =
plumbers helpers (new hopefully).
You may not to go as nuts as I did in this link but you can see a =
picture of my plunger as well as my doserless conversion.http://coffeegeek.com/forums/espresso/machines/139606?LastView=11477627=07&Page=1
