Overview

Rancilio. It's the most recognized name in commercial-quality espresso machines and grinders. And now, the company has packaged all the professional features and functionality that they're famous for into its latest line of Rocky grinders. The Rocky Doserless Coffee Grinder is ideal for the coffee enthusiast looking to step up from the basic grocery-store grind and commit to having better control. Featuring 55mm burr grinding plates crafted of the finest tempered steel, the Rocky is designed to deliver 55 different types of quality grounds at the press of a button, all without imparting additional heat during the process. Rocky's large, UV-resistant bean hopper holds more than a half a pound of beans so you won't have to stop mid-grind during a large dinner party for a refill.

Features & Functionality of the Rancilio Rocky Doserless Grinder

  • Commercial Quality Grinding Burrs: The tempered steel grinding plates rotate at super slow speeds to prevent heat build-up, which can ruin your perfectly roasted beans. The hugely productive motor is also insulated to prevent overheating.
  • Excellent Home Hopper: The compact hopper is blue-tinted for UV protection of your beans, but still easily see-through for monitoring of your bean level. The hopper holds over .5lbs of beans, and lifts off for easy cleaning.
  • 55 Ways to Grind: A twist of the grind dial on the Rocky gives you 55 levels of control over the output of the grinder. The ultra-fine threading allows you the versatility of going from espresso to drip to French press coffee brewing, and every other type between!
  • Quiet, Powerful and Safe: Rancilio designs for commercial use, and that means creating motors and grinders that emit as little noise as possible. The Rocky Grinder is no exception, and is one of the quietest available. Safety is just as important, with the balance of the grinding elements designed to prevent rocking and torque. 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.
Pros
  • Commercial-Grade Burr Grinder - The 50mm steel grinding plates are the same construction and quality as Rancilio's other commercial grinders.
  • Perfect Capacity - Smaller than the big commercial grinders, this machine still handles a little more than a half-pound of beans at a time.
Cons
  • Power Switch - Some users have complained about the placement of the power switch on the Rocky. Its location may make it difficult to handle the portafilter and operate the machine at the same time.
  • Large - The Rocky weighs 18 pounds and the motor makes up 11 of them. This will certainly take center stage in a small kitchen so make sure to measure your space prior to purchasing.

How is this machine different from the Rocky, for daily espresso-ground beans? Everyone says the Rocky is built like a tank, and good build quality is important, but I'd rather have something smaller, so I'm wondering about getting the Ascaso instead. Will it measure up?

Ascaso I-Mini I1 Flat Burr Grinder
Best Answer: I prefer the stepless dial on the I-mini to the stepped adjustment of the Rocky, you can get much closer to ideal grind size this way. That said, the smaller size of the I-mini means it has a slower motor and a smaller bean hopper.

Do you plan on using the grinder for anything other than espresso? If so, I'd recommend the Rocky, as its MUCH easier to make big adjustments on than the I-mini.

Hope this helps!
