Improving upon the Rocky is not an easy task. The Rocky has been one of the top home espresso grinders for years. The addition of the doserless model gives you a fantastic grinder with a chute in place of the doser. The chute reduces 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. The doserless Rocky looks almost identical to the stainless steel Rocky with the obvious lack of a doser. 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 holding fork for the portafilter handle has been drastically redesigned and provides a very stable platform to grind into. The Rocky 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. Rancilio is in the process of updating the look of the Rocky Grinder, it may ship with either a rose tinted or blue tinted bean hopper. Available in Stainless Steel.

Features & Benefits: Coffee

Heavy Duty Construction

The Stainless steel version has a stainless steel back panel and base with a heavy-duty black case aluminum frame. The Black & White has a black plastic base and back cover with a with heavy-duty white aluminum frame.

Doserless Grinder

This grinder uses a "chute" instead of a doser traditionally found on semi-commercial grinders. A retaining fork holds your portafilter handles as you grind directly into it. A doserless grinder will reduce wasted and staled coffee by grinding only what you need. No coffee is left behind.

Multiple Grind Settings

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.

Heavy Duty Motor

The Rocky’s motor is legendary. It is the same motor that Rancilio uses in the Commercial MD40 grinder. It is a 166-watt direct drive motor that is very quiet and extremely powerful. It will not slow down even under the most demanding workload. The motor alone weighs around 12# and spins at 1,725RPM. It has a high temperature overload switch to prevent possible damage if a stone gets caught in the burrs.

Top Quality Grinding 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.

Easy to use Controls

To turn the grinder on and off you just have to flip the switch that is located on the lower left front corner.

Tinted Hoppers

The bean hopper is made of rose tinted plastic that is designed to help keep your coffee fresh. A cover helps seal in the freshness. The bean hopper can hold up to 10.5 oz coffee.

Grind Settings - Rancilio Rocky

What are the recomended grind settings for espresso, pour over, and french press?

Answer on our Community →
Maggie aswered:
For espresso, a good starting point is between 5 and 8; pour over would be somewhere around 30; and French press would be somewhere between 20 and 30-it all depends on the kind of coffee and how recently it's been calibrated.

Grinder Noise

I have a Gaggia MDF and the noise is making my household crazy.  I have a Silvia ( with a DIY PID ) and roast my coffee.  I'm pretty happy with the grind of the MDF, but would like something quieter.  I've wondered abou tthe Rocky.  Thoughts?  Thanks

John Seymour aswered:
I also used a MDF for several years. I was always worried I would wake up my apartment neighbors. I am not sure about the Rocky grinder. I upgraded to a Ceado grinder and I can vouch that they are very very quiet.

I can use this machine to grind both brewed coffee using a paper filter and espresso? I assume I cannot, if I buy the Rocky that predoses for espresso portafilters...?

mjackson aswered:
Mitchell, Technically you could but it would be much more difficult to get the coffee into a filter. It also would be harder to use the grounds up in between changing settings. I would definitely get the doserless one.

The advertisement for this grinder indicates that is has a removable bean hopper. Can you buy additional hopers to easily change different beans?

techkathy aswered:
It does have a removable bean hopper. But there ate 3 screws that hold the hopper in place. The hopper is also open at the bottom. If the hopper were removed and still had beans inside they would spill out of the open bottom of the hopper. Other grinders (Mazzer, Ceado, etc) do have a hopper...

I have had my grinder since 2008 and have not had any problems with it. Paired with my Gaggia Classic, I have been a happy espresso drinker for many years. I would recommend the grinder as a reasonbly priced machine for the espresso officianado. While the majority of time and depending on the...

DanielCulver aswered:
Gary, grinding for a French Press is often a conundrum. Many beans require a very fine grind and a lessened steeping to get the best flavor, but many people (myself included) are wary of consuming too many fine coffee grounds that you would get with the French Press using a very fine grind. One...
Gary aswered:
Daniel, thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I had not thought about using a french press in that way given the size of the screen mesh of the filter. Reminds me of the turkish coffee I used to make many years ago in a pan on the stove. That was before all of the stuff we have...

I have a 10-year old Rocky (doserless). It has been great once I learned how to dial in for variation in beans, taste, etc. Unfortunately, it suddenly stopped working completely, suggesting some sort of electrical fault. I have removed the bottom of the unit and can identify the main electrical...

Sanfam aswered:
As far as the Rocky is concerned, it's basically just a large, AC-Driven motor with the output shaft connected to the lower burr plate. Unfortunately, I am not familiar enough with the motor's design to give you a solid idea of where to begin, but I would suggest researching AC Motor repair...
DrSteel aswered:
Thanks for the input. I agree that it may be a motor failure. However, the drawings show a starter capacitor plus other components in addition to the motor. If the motor has failed, replacement cost suggests buying a whole new unit. If it is a simpler part (resistor, capacitor, switch) maybe it...
