    Rocky needs new grinding burrs ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have had rocky for about 3 years. In that time I have ground about 70 Kg of beans. I have a silvia to go with rocky but I am going to upgrade to a Giotto evoluzione machine in the next few months but the budget will not extend to a new grinder at the moment.
    Will I get improvement form rocky if I put a new set of burrs in ?.

    I Would appreciate any feedback

    cheers NMO ;D

    No. Sorry to be blunt but its the quickest answer for a simple question.....not after only 70 kilos or even after a couple of hundred. The only way is to go for a better "match" of grinder to machine.

    I know rocky is not the perfect match for the Giotto Evo but it will have to do for the first 12 months.
    If there is anyone that has put new burrs in rocky I would like to hear what differance it made to how it performed.

    Cheers NMO

    Gday NMO... :)

    Dont know why youd even want to think about doing that mate.... At 70Kgs in, the burr-plates are barely worn in, not worn out. Attilio is a very wise man with all things related to great coffee including the machinery involved in delivering the goods in the cup, where it counts. His advice is spot-on.

    If you would like to use the Rocky for another 12 months, then the best thing you can do, is to employ some of the very simple and reversible mods that many CSers have applied to it. These mods can greatly improve the shot-to-shot grind consistency of Rocky and thats where coffee nirvana is lurking ;).

    Do a Quick Search (top R/H corner of page) for Rocky Mods and youll get loads of info about them. All the best... :)

    Hi Mal

    Thanks for the info on how long the burrs will last in rocky.(a lot longer than I thought). As for the rocky mods I have done the stepless mod and teflon tape mod. I will try to make the most of rocky for the next 12 months until I can upgrade.

    Cheers *NMO *;D
