    Rocky or K3 Touch?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,
    I am planning to get a Silvia, but im still a bit undecided as to which grinder to get.
    The most logical and popular choice would certainly be the Rocky, but seeing as the k3 touch would probably only cost about $150 more, i wouldnt mind stretching my budget a little bit if it meant that I would be getting a better grinder.
    So, my question is whether the K3 T is worth the extra bucks over the Rocky, or whether I would be better off with the Rancilio combo..
    Im sorry if ever this question has been posted before, but I havent seen any threads comparing these two grinders.

    Wow thanks for the fast response! So that is pretty much set, but would anyone be kind enough to elaborate on how its better? (As youll notice, Im still a newbie in terms of grinders and whatnot ;D)

    Go and read the reviews... *A few topics under grinders and search using Google, you will find plenty...

    The issue here is that unless you have used a number of grinders... Many of the terms and issues will sound strange and we will spiral down a path of detail and even more detail..

    See Greg Pullmans review.. *It compares the K3 to a top end machine and is only just pipped..
