Hey everybody, good news...
I finally stepped up to the Rocky.
Seems to be everything it is made out to be!(including expensive
So a question to those who are users of this unit;
-what grind setting do you use? (for espresso)
-what type of / level of roast coffee do you use?
-what semi-auto machine would you recommend?
I currently am using an old Saeco (Nuova)SuperVapore.
The Rancilio Silvia looks like a good next step. Next month maybe!
I use 9-11 for espresso (depends on weather) for single shots with a 1980's Faema Family (pressure about 8 bars or so), and 25 for filter, so maybe the grind differs between Rockies.
At grind setting 12 or below my Saeco won't push through any coffee, no matter how light the tamp. So either the Saeco is low on pressure or there is a difference in settings between various Rocky grinders. Probably it is the Saeco.
