Detailed Product Features
Commercial Quality Grinding Burrs
There's no mistaking the 50mm grinding wheels for anything but professional
quality. Made of hardened, tempered steel and engineered in a precision cutting
tooth design, the Rocky has both perfected a uniform, consistent grind as well
as ensured long wear. Should you eventually need to replace them, they're simple
Handy Dosing Lever
Since the Rocky was developed to be an espresso coffee grinder, it has a built-in
coffee grounds doser all set up to dispense approximately 7 grams of ground
coffee with every pull on the doser handle. The Rocky can be used directly for
any espresso machine with a common sized portafilter.
Made of tough, impact resistant, molded plastic and metal, the Rocky coffee
dosing hopper is designed to clearly show the level of ground coffee available
for use. You also can see the sturdy, plastic auger fins that direct the ground
coffee into the dispensing chute. The dosing lever is located on the side of
the hopper and below it is an open dock that holds the portafilter steady while
it is being filled.
Coffee Bean Hopper
The Rocky has a modest sized bean hopper to allow it to fit under most kitchen
cabinets. This 10-oz hopper is made of light blue tented, molded plastic.
55 Different Grind Settings
Finding the grind setting you want is easy with the grinding dial. The ultra-fine
threading allows you to go beyond the last setting up to 55 different grinds
and all the places in between. With that amount of versatility, you can happily
grind for espresso with precision, and you can also grind for drip, Turkish
or French press coffee brewing.
Quiet, Powerful and Safe
The motor on the Rocky was developed for the commercial line where power and
noise reduction was a must. No other motor can compete with the Rancilio 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
weight in the Rocky is from the motor itself, which weighs in at a hefty 11.5
pounds! Expect years of trouble free use with the Rocky in your home.
As an extra precaution, the Rocky features a great safety device. 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.
