Owning the Rocket Espresso Macinatore Fausto
Rocket’s Macinatore Fausto is designed with elegance and ease in mind. This stepless grinder is infinitely adjustable, so you can make the tiniest adjustments while dialing in your grind without being limited to a set amount of steps. Adjusting the grind size is easy using the micrometric adjustment knob, which repositions the bottom burr rather than the top. So, when you need to take off the top burr to clean it doesn’t affect your setting; meaning, you can go straight back to grinding shots at the same exact setting as before. If that sounds familiar, you may be thinking of Eureka’s patented micrometric regulation system and burr design, and you’d be right. The Fausto is a Rocket branded Eureka grinder, and features all their innovative elements. It’s also programmable by time, our favorite feature. So you can easily program the Fausto to dispense a single or double shot of espresso on demand, that are adjustable within 1/10th of a second.
Programming the Fausto is easy, and doesn’t require any menu navigation. Instead, you can simply select the shot you’d like to program on the touch screen and press the plus or minus icons until the screen displays your preferred time. You can also grind manually by pressing the single and double shot icons simultaneously. Fluffy grinds dispense evenly down the chute into the center of your resting portafilter which is propped up for hands free grinding. To access the large 65mm burrs for cleaning, or just to swap between roasts, the hopper can be stopped and easily removed. The Macinatore Fausto is available in chrome or black, and features Rocket’s signature branding. It not only looks the part standing next to any of the machines in Rocket’s line, its knockout high-performance will keep pace with any of them too.
