Rancilio. It’s the most recognized name in commercial quality espresso machines and grinders. And now, the company has packaged all the professional features and functionality that they’re famous for into its latest line of Rocky grinders. The Rocky SS Coffee Grinder is ideal for the coffee enthusiast looking for better control over grinding. Featuring 50mm burr grinding plates crafted of the finest tempered steel, the Rocky is designed to deliver 55 different types of quality grounds at the press of a button, all without imparting additional heat during the process. As for its functionality, it comes in a doser or doserless variety. With the doserless, you’ll have more manual control over the amount of grounds you deliver to your chosen filter or carafe. And with a doser, you’ll have the ability to tap out the right amount of grounds into the portafilter and then go straight to your espresso machine in mere seconds.
Rocky SS has grinding burrs with a diameter of 1.9 inch (50 mm), guaranteeing a production of 5.5-7.7 lb/hour (2.5-3.5 kg/h). The dosage is 0.2 oz (7 g), with a capacity for 10.5 oz (300 g) of coffee beans. Semi-automatic version.
- Commercial Quality Grinding Burrs – The tempered steel grinding plates rotate at super slow speeds to prevent heat build-up, which can ruin your perfectly roasted beans. The hugely productive motor is also insulated to prevent overheating.
- Excellent Home Hopper – The compact hopper is blue tinted for UV protection of your beans, but still easily see-through for monitoring of your bean level. The hopper holds over a half pound of beans, and lifts off for easy cleaning.
- 55 Ways to Grind – A twist of the grind dial on the Rocky gives you 55 levels of control over the output of the grinder. The ultra-fine threading allows you the versatility of going from espresso to drip to French press coffee brewing, and every other type between!
- Quiet, Powerful and Safe – Rancilio designs for commercial use, and that means creating motors and grinders that emit as little noise as possible. The Rocky Grinder is no exception, and is one of the quietest available. Safety is just as important, with the balance of the grinding elements designed to prevent rocking and torque. 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.
