The Rocky is the most durable coffee bean grinder available in its price range. It is extremely well made and we highly recommend it for home use and light commercial use. It is a dosing grinder, which makes it especially suited for use with an espresso machine. Although, it would have no problem grinding fine or coarse enough for any type of coffee/espresso machine you might have. The forks that are designed to hold your espresso machine portafilter in place are removable so that you may use any receptacle you want to catch the coffee. The Rocky is the grinder of choice for the finicky home barista due to its quality of grind and durability.
Features & Benefits: Coffee
Heavy Duty Construction
This stainless steel version has a stainless steel back panel and base with a heavy-duty black case aluminum frame. This commercial-quality construction is durable and designed to match your other Rancilio products.
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 lbs. 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.
Both the bean hopper and ground coffee container are made of tinted plastic that are designed to help keep your coffee fresh. They both have covers that also help seal in the freshness. Both the bean hopper and the ground coffee container can hold up to 10.5 oz coffee.
The Rocky is designed to dispense the ground coffee directly in to your espresso machine portafitler. After the coffee gets ground it drops in the ground coffee container. Then just pull the handle and it will dispense approximately 7 grams of coffee through a small hole in the front directly into your portafitler. You will notice the two plastic forks that are designed to hold your portafilter in place. These are removable so that you may place any receptacle that is less than 3 _” tall such as a filter for a drip coffee machine. To remove them you just have to remove two Phillips head screws. Just give us a call for details on to remove the forks.
what's the warranty period for the refurb items like Rancilio grinder
There is a six month warranty on the refurbished Rancilio Rocky
I'm seeing a TON of refurbished Rocky Doser machines on the net period. Makes me wonder if this thing is reliable.
DS,I just think people are upgrading there grinder, also the fact that people can sell them at a good price and get it makes me believe that they actually are reliable. It is built like a tank.
I love my Rocky, but I recommend the doserless. You don't want coffee sitting in a doser getting stale. They are really meant for commercial applications where you are making several espressos and hour.
