We’ve previously written about the Breville Smart Grinder as one of the top conical burr grinders whether you’re grinder for espresso, french press or drip coffee. We’ve also compared the Breville Smart Grinder to the Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder to help you make a better buying decision. In this post, we’ll be comparing the smart grinder to another popular choice for a coffee grinder, the Rancilio Rocky Coffee Grinder. Read on to learn what is the difference between them and which is a better choice for you.

Both the Breville Smart Grinder and Rancilio Rocky Coffee Grinder are top of the line conical burr grinders that provide a high-quality consistent coffee grind. The Rancilio Rocky is a more expensive option, almost twice the price of the Breville, which might lead you to think its a better option, but that’s certainly not the case. The Breville Smart Grinder is packed with great features and it’s perfect for the home user, where we think the Rancilio Rocky is more suited for commercial use, it does require more expertise for someone to be able to measure the grind coarseness and volume manually. We highly recommend the Breville Smart Grinder for home users and for any type of coffee grind you require.
