    Rancilio Rocky or Macap MC4

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Have a Gaggia Baby for about three months, and looking to get a good grinder. Something that I wont have to upgrade it or when I decide to upgrade from the Gaggia. What Ive been looking at are the Rocky doserless, and either the Macap MC4 or Macap M4 which I can get as Stepless were the Rocky is stepped. :-/ Thanks for any info

    Hi Gery and welcome,

    It appears that you are hoping to find a pre-loved grinder? :-?

    The best place for posts of this nature is in the Hardware for Sale area of the site.

    Its a good idea to read the site sales and posting policy whilst you are there as well ;)

    Also a good idea (given that this is an Australian forum) to indicate that you are not in Australia!

    Enjoy the ride...

    I went from a Rocky to a Macap and it was quite a step up--so I recommend a Macap if the price is right.

    This is the Macap M4C grinder you should be aware that they are shop grinders designed to grind into bags



    If you are looking for a doserless Macap you should look at the M4D

    This the doser model Macap M4



    All of the the Macap range are good grinders that will serve many a machine upgrade

    You should also look at the Mazzer line-up

    Dont forget the venerable Compak range... Some of the best bang for buck grinders around 8-)

    The Macap MC4 is designed as a bag grinder and due to spout design can be prone to avalanche. It really is best suited as a deli grinder.

    The M4D is a totally different kettle o fish...and at a very different spend ;)
