We do love ourselves a grudge match over here at SCG, and today's contest is between the Rancilio Rocky and Baratza Preciso grinders. While they're both stepped grinders -- meaning that they have a notch configuration on the burrs so you have referential numbers vs. an infinite grind (like you find on the Mazzer grinders, for example) -- they each have different cases to make. The Rocky has commercial-grade components and a reputation as a solid, well-built machine, while the Preciso gives you more control over the grind (offering both macro and micro settings) as well as the ability to retrofit with the Esatto if you're looking for simple, weight-based grinding.
Watch as Gail shows us the features between these two grinder -- including a tour of their burr sets, functionality and grind quality.
