What is the most reasonable grinder to pair with this machine for home use? I am strongly considering the Baratza Vario, but I'm curious if I can get away with the Preciso? Thanks!

Best Answer: If you're going to spend that much on a Rocket, it would only seem right to get the Vario. You can certainly get an espresso grind with the Precise, but you will be limiting yourself.
