The Rancilio Rocky SD Grinder is an excellent doserless grinder, taking all of the commercial qualities found in a professional grade grinder, but with a home-purposed size and price.
Bite into the Rancilio Rocky, the perfect match for people looking to get started with espresso, or even for experienced hobbyists who want quality grinds. This stocky and rugged grinder has a high quality steel lower casing, grinds hard, and grinds fast.
The Rocky 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.
Excellent weight, has a removable portafilter holder which positions it directly below the grinder outlet.
The graduations for the bud spacing (grind setting) are pretty big and it could use a timer. Does a good job but lacks some features that would make it excellent.
Rancilio Rocky SD Doserless Coffee Grinder
Have had my new Rocky SD Doserless Coffee grinder for two weeks and it works great! Bought it to replace one that had finally worn out after several years. Liked the service from EspressDolche, who had one in stock (another retailer tried to sell me another brand after telling me that there were none in Vancouver and none expected for months!!). When I got home I found that the grinder had a broken hopper - no problem at all as I called and they set another machine aside for me to replace the one with the broken part. Couldn’t be happier and this is now my new place for all coffee machine related stuff !!! Helpful and professional staff and great response to my needs.
