Perfect companion to the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. The Rocky SD is burr coffee grinder with 50mm plate grinding burrs found in entry-level commercial grinders.

Grinds directly into your porta filter. The motor of the Rocky SD is a 166-watt direct drive motor that is extremely powerful. Spinning at 1725 RPM's. This powerful grinder is quiet during operation. Rocky SD features simple controls. Change the grind setting with a simple unlock of the lever and a quick spin of the bean hopper. It can grind coffee to a fine powder or course grind in seconds.

Now, to address everyone talking about it coming covered in coffee dust, it does!! Who cares. Blew it off and it's fine. There is a note that says why. See my pics to see the dust.
I tweaked a couple things. There are three screws that hold the hopper down. They're inset. Beans get lodged in there. You can turn the grinder upside down and they'll come out, but I just put tiny squares of duct tape over the holes. I only grind what I'm needing. I don't leave beans in the hopper. After a day's grinding -- two coffees, nada mas -- I turn the machine upside down and empty it of any stray beans. When I do this, some grinds will come out of the chute. Which is good b/c it means the next morning my Rancilio is cleared out and ready to go. Some people might find that excessive, or a hassle, but I don't. I love this grinder. Would never go back to a conical burr, esp. one with a lot of hard plastic parts. Which most of them are built with.
I bought this to replace my Ascaso grinder becuase I wanted a stepped adjustment to make switching brewing methods realistic. What I didn't expect was the Rocky would be so much quieter than my Ascaso. The coffee does clump up noticibly with finer grinds, but it doesn't seem to be a serious problem.
I do find the deep recesses for the screws inside the hopper to be a curious choice. Coffee beans will get trapped in there without a doubt, and while that may not bother you, it irks me since it's so unnecessary. Another minor problem is that it's quite hard to get a brush up into the grinder to clean out old grounds without removing the spout.
A bit less minor is the trouble you have to go to in order to have the grinder running when setting the adjustment finer. You have to hold the momentary grind switch, the release for the adjustment, and then rotate the hopper all at once. It's not simple, and I wish there was a better way.
A few people have mentioned the grinder arriving covered in coffee grounds and wondering if it was actually new. My grinder arrived with Rancilio-branded tape on the shipping carton, and then inside that was a second carton (also Rancilio-branded) that appeared to be the retail box. There's just no question in my mind that the grinder was new from Rancilio, but it did come complete with plenty of coffee grounds all over it. This is just what happens to a grinder when you use it (even just for factory testing).
This is a good prosumer grinder. It is expensive but is a large step up from higher cost consumer grinders. It seems the the high end consumer grinders have a better fit and finish but over delliver on features, e.g., over 100 grind settings, to differentiate from the lower cost variants.
A step up from here and you enter into the low end of commercial products which are aimed at the espresso brewer exclusively and are an overkill for a cup or two a day brewer like myself.
It is important to note that I brew Aeropress and thus require a fine-medium grind. The Rocky will do this grind and the espresso (fine) grind. The higher cost grinders tend to be espresso only. Also, the Rocky can grind directly into the Aeropress - convenient!
Final point, if you need a low cost grinder that will do Aeropress and French Press than you should go with the Cuisinart DBM-8. At 15% the cost of the Rocky it is a great value.
