1) From: J.W.Bullfrog
Hey All,
Since i haven't stayed up to date; are the Rocky & mini mazer still the two
choices for an espress grinder?
Please no solis maestro ? etc class suggestions please.

FYI, I rebuilding one of my Faema Compacts as a wedding present, and they
need a grinder.

I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Depends on how much counterspace you have.  Check out titan grinder 
project on Home barista if you wanna learn a lot about 
grinders.  Personally I like conicals and fortunately have enuff room 
for them.

I love my Nuova Simonelli MCF!  Found it in the basement of a shop that we took over, once.  It has tiny little burrs, but it rocks for home use.

6) From: Ed Needham
I've praised the Capresso 560 Infinity conical grinder in this group before, 
and after using it daily for three months, I am still convinced it is the 
absolute best grinder I've ever touched under $100.  I've had quite a few of 
them over the years, and even the Bunn BCG, which was over $100 and I 
personally think was one of the worst grinders I've ever used for home use. 
I also have a commercial flat burr grinder that I use for espresso and 'had' 
used for drip until this little wonder took up residence in my kitchen.  The 
thing is 'quiet'.  It grinds very finely and evenly, and works for espresso 
or drip with an easy, fast adjustment, and it's only $90.  The  one I have 
is black plastic, and I've occasionally had static issues, but I am not 
worried about a few grinds on the countertop.  $140 gets you a brushed 
chrome unit--pretty.  It's the coffee I'm interested in though, and the 
Capresso 560 does the job.

Ed,
You don't have the burr wear issues that would happen with the solis?
They want to do espresso all the time.
