http://www.coffeegeek.com/forums/espresso/machines/105539The above link is a great little mod to flush out grounds from a Rocky. I thought the list would be interested in it for those with Rocky's. Don't pick lemons. See all the new 2007 cars at Yahoo! Autos.http://autos.yahoo.com/new_cars.html
I have used the Click-Clak and it did work quite well. Then, someone suggested the Eggstractor. I found one at a Duane Reid clearance for about$2.50. I have to say the Eggstractor works better for me...I notice that no matter which of those methods I use there are still some grounds left, which will come out by tapping on the spout.. <Snip>
Tapping on the spout will eventually lead to it fracturing. It is really not that strong . Better to brush the rest out with a flux brush as used in soldering.
but preferably one that hasn't been used for soldering ;- ) On 3/15/07, Barry Luterman wrote: <Snip>
I've tried them and I find it impossible to get them up into the spout. I actually drilled a small hole in the front and used a very thin pipe brush, but this was messy. Now, after using the Eggstractor, I just jiggle the cup I use to catch the grounds, hitting the spout and body of the grinder. I don't see where a couple of gentle taps on the snout is gonna hurt it, and if it does, I have an excuse to get one of those cool blue ones :-) <Snip>
I take my vacuum (just the hose) and stick it on the end of the spout and turn it on. Takes about 2 seconds and then its clean. On Mar 15, 2007, at 2:37 PM, Angelo wrote: <Snip>
