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 lived in Italy for a couple years in the 70s, and introduced my husband to the goodness that is a properly crafted espresso, which was reinforced through subsequent holiday trips to Italy. We owned a coffee shop for 12 years, so we are very versed in how to make proper espresso, as well as brewed coffee. We closed our coffee shop 5 years ago (for personal reasons) and sold off our equipment, except for the grinder that we used for the espresso. We promptly purchased a Rancilio Epoca S1 espresso machine for personal use in our remaining business, as we are quite picky about our espresso and it is close to impossible to find a coffee shop that encourages/trains baristas in the proper steps to making great product. Sad to say, our poor old espresso grinder became unusable for our exacting requirements, so we examined options to replace the old grinder. After a lot of consideration, we decided that putting money out at the beginning for a quality product was much more preferable than trying/testing a number of less expensive grinders.
The product was shipped VERY quickly; no complaints regarding the shipping itself.
As noted in other comments, there was a residue of grounds in the box when unpacked ... which we totally expected, as we knew that this was for mechanism tests ... rather it be tested at the factory than us have to do it! It is impossible to get every little bit of coffee out of the grinder without doing a dismantle for cleaning ... which could in itself lead to later problems. Instead of complaining about the grounds, we cleaned up the outside & loose parts before installing it on the counter ... quite an easy job.
As we now live in an area that does have major shifts in humidity, we are eternally grateful for the ability to easily adjust the grind to accommodate the change in humidity from day to day. We use only filtered water in our espresso machine, tamp the grinds appropriately to get the correct draw timing for a perfect crema. Works like a charm. If we still had our coffee shop, we would use this grinder for decaf espresso, as we did not use that grinder as much as for regular espresso (we had an industry-appropriate work horse -- a Rancilio MD-50 -- for regular espresso). I was hesitant to spend so much on a grinder, but having purchased espresso equipment in the past (and buying an Epoca espresso machine for our personal use), it was far wiser to purchase something that would properly do the job and last a long while. If these machines can stand up to coffee shop abuse, they should last a long time in the personal environment.
1) The portafilter holder is just about useless. I took it out and it's a lot easier to use the machine.
2) It's a bit of a chore to clean. The grinder definitely can be a pain to clean as coffee gets all over the insides and I found using the point of a kitchen thermometer very handy it unclogging the machine.
Otherwise this should last you a lifetime.
This thing is a TANK. It gets used all the time. I love this grinder. The adjustments are great. The quirks are still there but well worth the purchse.
Arrived a day early and packed perfectly. runs very smooth and quiet. I set the grind at 5 and it was perfect with my Silvia bottomless portafilter with a 25 second pull.
Seller included a 500g package of excellent espresso as an added bonus.
My Silivia was happy to get her Rocky at last!
