    Will my rocky suit a VBMDS?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi, I currently have a silvia/rocky. Im looking at selling them to upgrade to a VBM Domobar super and some kind of grinder I cant manage to decide on. Im just after the opinion of those more in the know than I on my carrent grinder. Would a Rocky Doserless be an OK match to a new VBM DS?

    Ive heard the Silvia is a pretty picky lass when it comes to grind - so based on that, I assume that the VBM is less picky, and this the grinder would be adequate.

    Thoughts and comments, please :)
    And please, noone telling me to HTFU and buy a super jolly or something, cant quite afford an extra $1000 quite yet ;D

    Hi Sammus,

    In my experience, I would advise you to try your rocky with the VBM. I have used the Rocky with a VBM and it will do the job.

    Ideally a micrometric grinder will probably deliver an improvement, but perhaps try the rocky before you act in haste...

    Good luck in your search!

    Thats pretty much what my wallet was hoping to hear :) unless I get an irrefusable offer to buy the two together, I think I will take it step by step.

    Gday Sammus,

    Rocky is a very capable grinder and if youre already used to using him alongside the fabulous Silvia then I dont think youre likely to have too many worries with the VBM.... I used my Rocky alongside the Bezzera before pulling her down for restoration and managed to pull some exceedingly enjoyable shots so I think its well up to the task. As Chris has suggested, see how you go for a while and if all is good, youve saved yourself some immediate additional expense,

    All the best :),
    Mal.
