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

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 On 10/10/06, John Nanavati wrote: <Snip>
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. Jason <Snip> -- Jason Brooks jbrookshttp://javajeb.wordpress.com

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... Brett On 10/10/06, John Nanavati wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com
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...

<Snip> Just curious, when Rocky is no longer a grinder what does he become?-) Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee URL to Rosto mods, FrankenFormer, some recipes etc:http://mdmint.home.comcast.net/coffee/Rosto_mod.htmUltimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path.

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? Cheers -RayO, aka Opa! Got Grinder?
