    Dosing from a Rocky Doser

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi CSs,
    Does anyone know whether the amount of coffee from one click of the rocky doser can be adjusted?

    Cheers,
    CT.

    I have this doser as well. I use a scientific method here - do a half-pull on the lever - not quite to the click, and get a bit more. If its too much, I scrape it in to a flat dish that I keep underneath the doser tray to catch crumbs.
    Cheers.

    I just grind what I need for each shot.
    Ive removed the separator and done the tape sweep mod.
    Grind
    3 clicks into PF
    Tap on bench
    3 more clicks into PF (grinder is now empty)
    Tap, level, tamp, load.

    There are many who remove the separator from the doser....Is there a purpose behind this piece of stainless? or can Rocky happily exist without it? I wonder what is was originally designed to do?

    I think it is meant to separate your clicks into 7g doses. However, I didnt find it useful when making 2 or 4 coffees at a time, so I removed it. And since you cannot adjust the grams per click, I thought Id just try life without it. That was about 2 years ago now.

    So - yes, Rocky can happily exist without it.

    We are going to have a number of people at our place n the next few weeks, so I am toying with the idea of putting it back in to see if it helps at all when I grind a large volume (IE: 10+ coffees in quick succession).
