    Gino Rossi CC45....are these any good?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi guys, just seen a few Gino Rossi CC45s for sale lately, and just wondering if they are any good?

    Looking to pair it with a La San Marco 85-16M-2.


    And how would it compare with other grinders like the Rocky or Mazzer Mini? Cheers.

    Yes;

    "..And how would it compare with other grinders like the Rocky or Mazzer Mini? Cheers..."

    Rocky - no comparison, the Gino Rossi is a full size commercial coffee grinder able to handle cafe volume, the Rocky is not.

    Mazzer Mini - also no comparison same as above, the Gino Rossi is a full size commercial coffee grinder able to handle cafe volume, the MM is not.

    All three grinders will grind the same quality of grinds and that is not the issue...the issue between them then is relative to their size ie, capacity for volume production and relative ease of use in the intended situation.

    So in fact then it may well be, that if your situation is for home use / domestic, that you could then turn the above upside down, and say that for home use the Gino Rossi is NOT AS "good" as the other two, due to them having smaller bodies, being shorter in height so fit under household overhead cupboards, same quality of grind anyway, one is doserless, (& please dont bring up the "size of the steps" in the adjuster because it really is not relevant and these are all quality grinders), etc etc etc.

    However, my own personal preference for home use, where the purchase price is not the issue, I would go the middle grinder rather than the two "extremes" ( rocky / Gino Rossi).

    Further......if however even despite the fact that it may be a domestic situation, if the machine is full size commercial, for the sake of "matching" the equipment properly together, I might then go the Gino Rossi and IE, match the commercial grinder to the commercial machine.

    There, that should give you a few perhaps conflicting ideas to think about!!!!!!!!

    Regardz,

    hehe yeah thanks for that. At least i know its a quality grinder now. Issues such as size etc dont really worry me because its all got its own little (or not so little place) with all the coffee stuff, so unless its the size of a fridge, it should be okay.

    Hey Fresh,
    was doing a search on the Rossi grinder and saw your feedback and comments on the Rockys steps not* being relevant.* *
    Why isnt it relevant?* I had a Rocky but ended up passing it on as my ideal grind was between two steps.* I loved it aesthetically but* moved up to a K3 touch (stepless)* which I also love.
    Just trying to understand why you feel stepped isnt relevant.*
    Cheers,
    Kess

    Gday Kessler... :)

    This has been covered many times over the years but basically, you adjust your dose slightly up or down while leaving the grind setting where it is. This more than compensates for the lack of intermediate step changes.... 8-)

    Ahhh, fair enough. Thanks Mal. I passed my Rocky onto my father who needed a grinder so it was a good deal for us all round. :)
