Product Description

Perfect companion to the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. The Rocky SS is a doser burr coffee grinder with 50mm plate grinding burrs found in entry-level commercial grinders. Capable of grinding up to 7.7lbs per hour the Rocky SS will be sure to keep up with your needs. The Rocky SS features a dosing chamber which holds freshly ground coffee. At the pull of a handle, just like the pros, about 7 grams of coffee are dispensed directly into the porta filter. The Rocky SS features a plastic fork to hold your porta filter in place. The motor of the Rocky SS is a 166-watt direct drive motor that is extremely powerful. Spinning at 1725 RPM's. This powerful grinder is quiet during operation. Rocky SS features simple controls. Change the grind setting with a simple unlock of the lever and a quick spin of the bean hopper. It can grind coffee to a fine powder or course grind in seconds. The tinted bean hopper of the Rocky SS keeps just over 1/2 a pound of whole bean coffee fresh and ready to grind on-demand.

I must say my espresso and cappuccinos are as good or better than our local coffee shops.
Zoe
Either way this machine is definitely worth the investment and will probably be the last grinder you will ever buy - you will pass it on to your grandkids!

The Rocky has the adjustability to grind so fine that it can completely choke the espresso machine.

I won't rate this product 5 stars because I don't believe it is a good value. At almost [...], this thing should be flawless, and its not. If my only criteria were grading the ground coffee it produces, it would be a 5 though. Let me say though that it does a fantastic job making espresso grounds.

The path I took before I purchased this grinder started with a Black Friday sale at Starbucks where I picked up a Sirena espresso machine for $315. I had been coveting this machine since I had been introduced to espresso a year earlier but couldn't stomach the [...] gut wrenching price for that machine. Box in hand, I headed home to make my first espresso.

Long story short, I spent a few days using my [...] blade grinder to grind the coffee and came to the conclusion that I couldn't get the grounds consistent, even or fine enough. So I spent some time reading the thread on c[...] about my machine and found that most people on there recommended the Rocky. I thought [...]for a coffee grinder was ridiculous (I typically use stronger language but....) so I shopped around and settled on the still expensive (seriously, we're grinding coffee here) but reasonable Breville BCG450XL Conical Burr Grinder. I liked the Breville as it was fast, quiet, clean, small and light. However, its finest setting ("Turkish") wasn't really all that fine. Even on the finest setting, I was pulling triple shots in 8-10 seconds (which is about 2 seconds longer than when not using any coffee!). At that rate the espresso is thin and there is no crema.

Not being the type to give up on anything, I did some more research on the coffee grinders out there and was disappointed to find there was nothing in the $100-200 price range that people had good things to say about.

The Rocky grinder is so incredible. Tons of horse power and a consistent grind. I grind for espresso and I can increment the grind size in slight increments according to how well the espresso is making it through the porta-filter on my espresso machine. Awesome way to fine tune and adjust according to the quality and age of the beans.

Built like a pro grinder - heavy duty!

Regarding the decision of dosser vs. doserless: If you are going to us this as a COMMERCIAL grinder and pour shot after shot - go with a dosser for measuring convenience. But you will always have some of your ground coffee sitting in the hopper.

If you're making your espresso's one at a time - go doserless. Then you're getting your coffee freshly grounded just before you use it.

UPDATE 9/2011: Still running great and creating a perfectly even, fine grind for espresso.

UPDATE TO UPDATE: 11/2012: Still running great and creating a perfectly even, fine grind for espresso. Definitely getting my monies worth out of this one.

I recently bought this great burr grinder along with the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. Getting a great home espresso is all about the grind. I didn't know this until just recently. I'd been a dope, using a cheap blade grinder not knowing what a HUGE difference a burr grinder would make.

Now, I have my grind and my tamp dialed in, along with a great espresso machine (The Miss Silvia). I must say my espresso and cappuccinos are as good or better than our local coffee shops. If you are really into your espresso or cappuccinos, you MUST have a burr grinder. This is well made and easy to use. I highly recommend it.

I can say that it has really improved my morning espressos. Having the ability to grind the coffee myself right before I pull a shot has improved the quality and consistency of my lattes. The Rocky does a great job with the grinding and with the doser, I haven't had too much problem with "dust". It's build is of a fairly high quality- plastic could be a bit heftier, but with a little care it should last me many many years, and it turns out great coffee grounds. Well worth the money even though it is not cheap. I use a La Pavoni hand pump machine, and it has never turned out as good a shot as I can now obtain with the combination of it with the Rocky.

I'm really bummed based on the other reviews, because I must have got a lemon. I bought this grinder new about 3-4 years ago as part of a package deal with a Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. I did not buy it from Amazon, but from another retailer. I started out by setting the grind as fine as possible per the instructions by adjusting the wheels until they barely touched and then backing off one notch. Then, for about 2-3 years I struggled with getting much more than about 10 seconds shot time, no matter how hard I tamped the shot, or how much coffee I put in the portafilter. First I bought a nice new heavy tamper, and then a rimless portafilter. Then I thought it was too high shot pressure from the Silvia, so I researched online and found out how to adjust the pressure - I dropped the pressure and got longer shot times, but lost most of the crema. Also, taste was never good with either the higher or lower pressure. I eventually gave up, and started going back to Starbucks. Then I read online that the grinder wheels on the Rocky can get dull and need to be replaced. So I spent about $50 and ordered new replacement grinder wheels. Everything was going good on replacing the wheels until the last screw holding on one of the existing wheels stripped -- I found out online that this is a common problem when replacing the Rocky grinder wheels and the only suggested solution was drilling out the old screw. So I looked into a tap for drilling out the screw, and then just gave up fearing that I would damage the grinder and growing tired of the time and effort I was spending on it. I put the Rocky in the pantry (where it is still sitting with the new unused grinder wheels).Read more ›
