Big on features but small in stature, the Rocket Espresso Faustino Espresso Grinder is sized just-right for your kitchen counter. The Faustino's compact form factor and short under-cabinet height makes it the perfect pair with Rocket Espresso's home machines—while still offering the grind quality for incredible home espresso. The Faustino begins with outsized furniture that belie its compact casing; a large textured grind adjust dial, thick portafilter rest, and capacious bean hopper offer excellent ergonomics. Internally, a sound-insulated case, stepless 50mm flat burrset, anti-static grounds chute, and shaped dosing cone ensure clean, consistent portafilter fills. Controls are mounted at a slight angle with a high-contrast touchscreen that allows for dosing options or continuous grinding modes. The Faustino is offered in matching chrome, contrast black, or special edition Appartamento finishes.

Tips and Tricks
- Bean Hopper Lock Screw: The recessed hopper lock screw takes a long 3mm hex or allen key. If you don't see it, use a flashlight and you'll see the screw head recessed in there.
- Missing +/- Buttons?: This is a 'lockout' function to prevent accidental changes to time. Push and hold the circles where the +/- buttons were for about 3-4 seconds and they should unlock!
