Hi All, very recently joined. I’ve put an introduction in the Lounge sub forum. After wanting to take coffee drinking more seriously I finally took the plunge and bought a used Europiccola (the looks got me ages ago). After grinding beans with a Krups el cheapo blade job - yes, I know… today I’ve taken delivery of a Rancilio Rocky SD. Now I’m aware that in the larger scheme of grinders it’s pretty low down when compared to some, but I’ve just had my first 18g through it and bearing also in mind that I’ve only had the EP for a week I managed a 1:2 extraction ratio. 18 in 36 out. And the actual coffee drunk was like night and day from the drink before. I binned the remaining ground beans and most definitely won’t be going back to the Krups!! I still need a tamping station and some scales that read fractions of grams, but overall I’m pretty chuffed with my efforts.
