Simple to use, produces a high quality grind, and built to last, the Rancilio Rocky is an excellent grinder for home and light-duty commercial use. The doser version makes it easy to grind beforehand in anticipation of heavy duty coffee requirements.
The Rancilio Rocky Doser comes with a redesigned coffee drip tray and still uses the same hardened steel burr cutting disks as the Rancilio MD40 commercial grinder and has a heavy-duty thermally protected motor. Because the Rocky uses large 50mm (2 inch) cutting disks, the powerful motor is able to run at a lower RPM. This ensures that the coffee does not burn and also makes the Rocky grinder very fast and quiet. Its high throughput of coffee (8 seconds per shot) will reward you time and time again, when you are in a hurry or late for work.Although called grinders, true espresso grinders, such as the Rocky, more properly cut the coffee. This ensures that the coffee packs easily and provides consistent resistance regardless of the tamp pressure. The Rocky has a nearly infinite range of settings for super accurate espresso settings and can easily handle extra-fine settings such as what's required by the Rancilio Silvia. The Rancilio Rocky Doser grinder also has a 30 shot doser capable of accurately dispensing multiple espresso shots if desired. This is a great feature if you are having a dinner party or are in an office environment, but for one or two espresso occasions we still prefer the more ritualistic and Barista-approved shot-on-demand method - grind, flick, flick, flick!This is no light-weight grinder Weighing in at over 17 lbs, the main body of the grinder is constructed out of die-cast aluminum, painted over with porcelain-enamel paint for durability and scratch-resistance. The painted iron-frame underneath provides long-term strength. The 304-brushed stainless steel accent is the same finish as the Silvia, but will look good beside any espresso machine.Built to last a lifetimeProfessionals will change the burrs after 500 lbs, but most residential users should get 750 lbs easily with no adverse effect on their espresso. Lets see... at 63 espressos per lb and 1 lb per week, well you do the math.Which Rocky grinder to buy - doser or doserless?The Rocky Doser is handy for larger volume users and also acts as a handy receptacle if you overfill your basket. You can also "grind to order;" just turn on the grinder and keep flicking the lever until your basket is full. With the Rocky Doserless, just place your portafilter handle under the spout and grind - you will soon perfect the art of gauging the correct amount. Remove the "stainless fork" and you can grind large amounts of coffee into a storage container or equivalent.
