Rocky and S1/V2 ?

Post by twy » Fri Mar 02, 2007 4:44 pm

Does anyone have any experience using a Rocky grinder with the S1/V2- I was recently reminded that my quality would be limited by the Rocky. But, will it be good enough?

My alternative would be to buy a new grinder (M4?) with a Hx machine (Vetrano?)for around the same price. I've been a little concerned about Hx machines (never used one) because I don't want to temp surf and I will be doing a "lot" of milk based drinks (lot = 6 to 10 on occasions) Daily only a couple. I know the S1 wont even break steam over this amount. But is it overkill for my needs?

My grinder's a Rancilio MD-40, which I understand has the same burr set as Rocky. No problems here, I get consistant (and delicious) 28 second shots. :D

I use the Rocky with my S1. Never had a problem. All other things being equal (amount, tamp, etc.) I can usually adjust a pour by 2 seconds with one click of the grind setting.
