The Rancilio Rocky has been one of the top home espresso grinders for years, especially considering its value for money.This doserless model gives you a fantastic grinder with a chute in place of the doser, reducing the amount of wasted coffee as well as the amount of stale coffee often left behind in dosers. Grind only what you need directly into your portafilter.
A main power switch is located on the right of the machine. Another “push and hold” switch on the front of the grinder is used to start and stop the grinding.
The Rocky Doserless is the grinder of choice for most finicky home baristas due to its quality of grind and durability.
Please note that most coffee grinders are tested at the manufacturer and coffee grounds may be found in the grinder as a result.
The Rocky can be quickly and accurately adjusted using its 55 different grind settings.
To make the adjustment you just push down on a release lever and turn the bean hopper. You can quickly and easily change from course to fine. It can grind your beans into a fine powder for Turkish coffee or espresso and even course enough for French press. With a Rocky the most particular barista will be able to fine-tune their extractions to perfection.
The Rancilio Rocky’s motor is legendary. It is the same motor that Rancilio uses in the Commercial MD40 grinder.
It has a high temperature overload switch to prevent possible damage if a stone gets caught in the burrs.
Like the motor the grinding burrs on the Rocky are the same ones that Rancilio uses in the commercial MD40 grinder.
They are the flat plate style and 50mm in diameter that are even designed to handle a commercial load.
Rancilio as a company has a long tradition and history of production of high-quality espresso machines that date back to the twenties.
After decades of growth and learning, they proudly continue to offer their products that are first in their class in design and technology. Ever since Roberto Rancilio founded the company in 1927, they have been driven by a passion for extraordinary espresso.
