It’s Italian and it’s called, “Rocky” so that means it’s a champion. The Rancilio Rocky, designed specifically for espresso, enjoys the reputation of being one of the toughest, most durable grinders on the market. Based on the engineering and innovations developed from Rancilio’s commercial grinders, the Rocky has set the bar for other grinders competing in the home espresso market.
The Rocky Doserless Burr Grinder allows you to grind and dispense any amount of coffee into whatever container you’d like; any espresso machine portafilter or drip coffee basket, etc. A flip of the switch will begin the grinding process and immediately ground coffee will flow down the coffee chute until you turn it off. Simple, easy, reliable.
The Rocky Doserless Grinder is one of the markets best built home and light commercial coffee grinders for the money. With a body weight of 17 pounds (with the motor making up 11.5 of those pounds), its brushed stainless steel housing, and heavy-duty plastic accessory components, there is no doubt that the Rocky is one of the toughest grinders in its class.
Because of its tough build and performance and reasonable price, the Rocky is a popular choice for cafes and restaurants that need a medium duty primary grinder. Its wide range of grinding options can convert coffee beans from uniform coarse grinds to fine powder. This quality grinding is crucial for home, as well as high-end and commercial espresso machines and it’s a dream for the espresso connoisseur. With so many settings, you can adjust the Rocky to very exact specifications. Great for home, office, or professional use.
Detailed Product Features
Commercial Quality Grinding Burrs
There’s no mistaking the 50mm grinding wheels for anything but professional quality. Made of hardened, tempered steel and engineered in a precision cutting tooth design, the Rocky has both perfected a uniform, consistent grind as well as ensured long wear. Should you eventually need to replace the wheels, they’re simple to remove.
Convenient Direct Dosing System
Unlike the original Rancilio Rocky Doser Grinder, this “doserless” model allows you to dispense fresh ground coffee directly into your filter basket (in your espresso machine portafilter), as well as a filter basket for a drip coffee maker. This design makes the Doserless Rocky Grinder an excellent general purpose coffee grinder because you are not limited by a dosing hopper. Simply put, you can grind your coffee beans and dispense the grounds directly into any container you wish.
Coffee Bean Hopper
The Rocky has a modest sized bean hopper to allow it to fit under most kitchen cabinets. This 10-oz hopper is made of light blue tented, molded plastic.
55 Different Grind Settings
Finding the grind setting you want is easy with the grinding dial. The ultra-fine threading allows you to go beyond the last setting up to 55 different grinds and all the places in between. With that amount of versatility, you can happily grind for espresso with precision, and you can also grind for drip, Turkish or French press coffee brewing.
Quiet, Powerful and Safe
The motor on the Rocky was developed for the commercial environment where power and noise reduction was a must. No other motor can compete with the Rancilio whisper soft operation and torque for grinding coffee beans. The motor is directly connected to the cutting wheels for “direct drive power.” In fact, most of the weight in the Rocky is from the motor itself, which weighs in at a hefty 11.5 pounds! Expect years of trouble free use with the Rocky in your home.
As an extra pre-caution, the Rocky features a great safety device. Should the grinding mechanism jam or become overheated, a thermal protection devise shuts it down to prevent damage to the motor or the grinding mechanisms.
