Jim, if I hear you sing the praises of the Mazzer one more time I'll, I'll,
I'll... I know, I'll quit trying to convince myself I'll be satisfied with a
lesser cost grinder, that I don't really 'need' it, and I will make sure it
arrives come Christmas! (keep the Mazzer brain washing coming... soon I'll
join you;-)

Mike, I actually got myself excommunicated from the 
congregation of devout Mazzerites for refusing to swear 
my coffee got 300% better.

Will you, please, Jim, tell as EXACTLY (to one tenth of a percent) how much
better your coffee got?  :-)
(-: I need that figure to support my decision to get a Mazzer as a Christmas
gift for our Miss Tea.  :-)
Cheers, Lubos

Mike, the best coffee related purchase I've made was my Mazzer.  I did go 
overboard and get the Super Jolly, but got it at a super price, so it was 
the obvious choice.  I believe it is very similar to the Mini, however, 
except that it has a gigantic hopper and you can adjust the amount of the 
individual dose.
The motor purrs like a contented asteroid and it probably could happily 
munch small planetoids for breakfast.  The grind feels perfect, no dust at 
all.  There is no plastic to speak of, so there is no static problem.
Even at that, there are a few grounds scattered around, but not much and 
not far.
The Mini and Super Jolly both are weighty affairs, you know you are dealing 
with a commercial grade device, no question.  As somebody else pointed out, 
the location of the power cord is brain dead, but that aside, the device is 
marvelous.
The only real downside I see is that the coarsest grind is not coarse 
enough for a French press, unless there is a trick to getting a coarser 
grind than I am aware of.  The stainless steel ring is infinitely variable, 
and just a couple of millimeters can make a difference in extraction...if 
you are truly picky, that is.
The manual says that it can grind inexcess of 500 kilos of coffee before 
burrs need to be replaced, should last for quite some time at my 
consumption rate.
So, go buy one and stop torturing yourself.

Mike. I agree with Dan.  If you buy any other grinder it will just cost you 
more money.  You will be thinking for the next year or two, for just a few 
dollars more I could have had the Mazzer, I could have had the Mazzer.  
Eventually you will come to actually despise the other grinder.  Before you 
know it, you will have purchased the Mazzer, and hidden the other grinder 
away in the closet in shame......  I say, Why go through all the anguish?

My Rocky vs Mazzer Mini choice ended up on the Rocky.  The limiting factor 
was the cost.
The Mazzer was 2 inches too tall to fit under the cabinets that are above 
the kitchen countertops.  In order to get a Mazzer Mini, it was going to 
cost me another $7-10 thousand for a kitchen remodeling job.  Plus, I 
would've had to wait...

Height of the Mini was one of my hesitations but I think I've overcome it.
BTW, your 'dadstoy' site doesn't mention your Rocky, still just the
Maestro... Do you use the Rocky for all grinding like you did the Maestro,
or just espresso and the Maestro for drip-vac-press etc?
