Commercial quality for the home or small office
The Rancilio Rocky enjoys the reputation of being one of the most durable mills on the market. Based on the innovative engineering that is the hallmark of Rancilio's commercial grinders, the Rocky set the bar for other grinders in the home espresso market.
The Rocky No-Doser will grind and dispense any amount of coffee into any type of coffee container: an espresso machine portafilter, drip coffee basket or other. A flip of the switch will begin the grinding process, releasing ground coffee down the coffee chute until you turn off the flow. Simple, easy and reliable.
With a body weight of 17 pounds (the motor makes up the bulk of that at 11.5 pounds), the Rocky's brushed, stainless-steel housing and heavy-duty accessories distinguish the Rocky from other grinders in terms of value for money.
Its sheer toughness, reliability and pricing has made the Rocky a popular choice with cafes, restaurants and home users alike. A wide range of grinding options allows for very exact grinding specifications and a variety of preferences, including uniform coarse grinds and fine powder, making the Rocky an ideal choice for both home and commercial use.
The Rocky's 50-millimetre grinding wheels are engineered in a precision, cutting-tooth design and made of hardened, tempered steel. The Rocky is built to last but should you eventually need to replace the grinding burrs, they are simple to remove.
Unlike the original Rocky Doser Grinder, the "doserless" model dispenses fresh ground coffee directly into the filter basket (located in the espresso machine's portafilter or the filter basket of drip-coffee makers). This design makes the Rocky No-Doser an excellent, general-purpose coffee grinder because users are not limited by a dosing hopper. You can grind your coffee beans and dispense the grounds directly into any container you wish.
The Rocky's conveniently sized bean hopper means it will fit under most kitchen cabinets. The 10-oz hopper is made of light blue, tented, molded plastic.
Finding the grind setting you want is easy with the Rocky grinding dial. The ultra-fine threading allows you to go beyond the last setting to as many as 55 different grinds and all the places in between. With that amount of versatility, you can happily grind for espresso with precision or for drip and French-press coffee brewing.
The Rocky's motor was designed for a commercial environment where power and noise reduction is a must. No other motor can compete with the Rocky's 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 Rocky's weight derives from the motor itself, which weighs in at a hefty 11.5 pounds! Expect years of trouble-free use when you purchase a Rocky.
As an extra precaution, the Rocky features a great safety device. Should the grinding mechanism jam or become overheated, a thermal protection device shuts the machine down to prevent damage to the motor and the grinding mechanisms.
