Topic: Choosing a Grinder (13 msgs / 226 lines)
1) From: cja
I'm very sorry but someone asked me to send them info on the thread 
about choosing a grinder but I accidentally deleted the email and it is 
gone. One way to look at past threads is via the archive. Click the 
month and then search the page for key words... Grinder, rocky, etc.
Hope this helps (and reaches you),
Chad

Search for the emails titled:
  *How important is a good grinder for non-espresso*
There were 64 emails in that thread.
Have you GMAIL for your inbox on this list?  You can search as far back as
you like, quickly, get to it from anywhere, and it's free?

Choosing a grinder:  (1) See how much money you can spare.  (2) If it
isn't enough for a Rancilio Rocky, save some more.  If it is enough
for a Mazzer Kony go for it!  Any Mazzer or Macap inbetween will set
you up for life.

Les,
    True for non-espresso life, as well?  I've pretty much stopped with
espresso, given life at this time with little ones.  But after
cranking for over an hour last Saturday, I'm thinking more about an
electric.  But for regular Chemex and FP, occasional Vac, ibrik or
moka, is a Rocky overkill?  I can easily grind for the latter two,
though the ibrik takes a while in a Zass.

does anyone here need a GMAIL account? I am not sure if you still need an
invitation but I have 92 left if you want to use GMAIL as your
email/alternate email.

Nope, not the toolbar.  Google offers a hosted email service, for free,
which you never need to delete.  Incuded is the Google Search engine - at
the mail server, so you can search and retrieve.
I don't use the Google toolbar either - interferes...

The Rocky is a grinder for a long long time.  It is flexible and very
adjustable, but also very consistent.  It should do for all the modes
you have mentioned...

Just curious, when Rocky is no longer a grinder what does he become?-)

If a grinder is The One to have for espresso grinding, at what point does
precision grinding become unimportant to the brewing process?
Or maybe it's not quite correct that grind quality is unimportant to 
brewing style.
Brew good coffee with any particular machinery. Exchange any one ot the
machines involved for one of greater precision and taste the difference.
Other than exhausting your funds, when is it good enough to use inferior
equipment to process superior beans?
