Features & Functionality of the Rocket Espresso Macinatore Fausto Grinder

  • Easy-to-Use Controls: Press the single cup button for one dose, the double cup button for two doses or both buttons at the same time for continuous grinding.
  • Stepless Grinder: Some fear the time investment of dialing in a stepless grinder, but the Fausto's micrometric adjustment makes achieving the perfect grind easy. As an added bonus, adjustments are made to the bottom burr. This means that the Fausto grinder maintains its calibration through disassembly and cleaning of the internal burrs.
  • 65mm Burrs: With 65mm flat burrs, the Fausto grinder is stepping up the home grinding game in a big way. Accurate and fast, Rocket Espresso's decision to equip the grinder with commercial quality burrs has our hearts all aflutter!
  • Sizable Bean Hopper: This bean hopper holds over one pounds of beans and includes a handy-dandy stop-gate for hopper removal. Simply slide over the stopper tab and watch in amazement at the lack of bean spillage!
Pros
  • Big in Features, Small(ish) in Size - Much smaller than commercial grinders but with the same great quality and features.
  • Less Clumping - The Rocket Fausto grinder can grind fine with less clumping than competitors.
  • Easy Adjustments - Dial in and keep the perfect grind with the micrometrical adjustment wheel!
Cons
  • All That and A Bag of Potato Chips - The opposite of bad, the Fausto is rocking some serious features and functionality. That said, not everyone will need or use what it offers, so assess to ensure it meets your home grinding needs.
How Does it Compare?

The Rocket Espresso Fausto grinder provides more features than its direct competitor, the Mazzer Mini, while staying in the same price bracket. It also matches the Rocket Espresso machines for a perfect pair!

I just received this grinder and the manual says to clean the chute on a daily basis. How do you clean the coffee chute? The top to the funnel is tightly fastened with screws - so neo access there. Must the top of the grinder with the upper burr be removed to get at the chute? If so this is poor design for cleaning. The manual provides ni information on how to clean.
ALLAN K on Jun 29, 2016
Best Answer: Hey Allan!

A quick run up the grounds chute with a pipe cleaner or small brush should be all you need, no disassembly required!

This is very similar to the Eureka 65e. Besides size, the main difference seems to be that the motor is 245 vs the Zenith's 500 watts. How much of a difference does that make in consistency? It seems the more powerful motor would be a better choice.

Also it seems the Euro version of the fausto comes in at 500 watts. Has it been modified for the American market?

Best Answer: Buy the Zenith and don't look back!! Eureka is one of the oldest companies in Italy...and the Zenith is commercially rated.

How coarse does this grind? I'd like to use it for espresso, but also occasionally for an Aeropress.
A shopper on Aug 1, 2016
Best Answer: I've used it for my french press on occasion. Its just coarse enough for a french press, although not by much. I've never used an aeropress, but I think they recommend a fine grind for that, so the coarser grinds on this machine should be fine for the aeropress.

Does it do well switching between decaf and regular?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2016
Best Answer: Well, it has a large hopper big enough to hold a pound of beans at a time. To switch between decaf and regular you would have to empty the hopper, which possible, but not necessarily easy. If you only put the amount of beans into the hopper that you intended to use for that shot of espresso, then yes, you could easily add which ever beans you wanted. If you wanted store beans in the hopper, then I would say no it doesn't do well - you have to close the hopper chute, remove a screw, empty the hopper, replace it, tighten the screw, run the remaining beans in the machine through and throw the grinds out then add the new beans to the hopper.

(1) Is this a newer version of the Mazzer for Rocket?

(2) Is a short hopper available?

(3) How soon will you have a video review?
Ali M on Jan 21, 2016
Best Answer: This is a new version although is not related to Mazzer. It was developed by Rocket and is designed to improve on the features and performance of the older Mazzer Type A. It has larger burs, easier adjustment, better management of clumping and better controls. The video is posted now. For now, no shorter hopper is available but we have that on the product feedback list with Rocket.

hi there, is this weight dependent and I need to fill the bean hopper to have a consistent grind or I can just put 18gram of beans and still get a consistent grind with no flying grounds.
thanks!?
wenhui L on Aug 15, 2017
Best Answer: Hello!

The Fausto is definitely not designed for single-dose brewing (most flat burr grinders aren't great at it due to their natural retention). You'd definitely be better off filling the hopper and using the time function.

Is the bean hopper made of glass or plastic?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2017
Best Answer: Hello!

The Fausto's hopper is plastic.

Would this fit a Rocket Giotto Evoluzione v2 knob. Could be fun to make some modification. Also, the Rocket Fausto grinder can you buy a shorter bean hopper thing?? Or, can you recommend something that would work but not from Rocket??

Best Answer: Hello! The R58 chrome knob cover will not fit the evoluzione knob, unfortunately. They are threaded differently since the R58's knobs are turned outward. If you're looking for a smaller espresso-quality grinder, the Eureka Mignon, or Baratza Forte are both phenomenal choices. Hope this helps!

What is the best and at the same time most practical way to clean the Fausto's burrs? Straight up Grindz, or disassemble the burr housing and brush them clean? A little concerned the disassembly will ruin the calibration. Thanks in advance!
Jaime C on Feb 1, 2017
Best Answer: Gail has a video (https://youtu.be/f5Nf8Do1AmE) on cleaning the burrs. Actually opening the Fausto doesn't ruin the calibration as the other comment says due to it's design. I wish Gail would have run Grindz first to then see what is left to clean when you open it. I'll try that next week - seems Grindz and vacuum get it pretty sparkling clean where you can see.

We've been using the our Fausto for almost 8 months now and love it! Do you have a recommendation for when to change the burrs? Also, where can we get replacement burrs when the time comes? Thanks in advance!
Will H on Dec 14, 2016
Best Answer: Hello! We don't (yet) have replacement burrs for the Fausto, but are looking into stocking them ASAP! You likely have another year or two of home use before you need to replace them.

Hope this helps!

Instantly Upped My Espresso Pulls!Review by Drew
Price
Quality

Let's be honest. This is a lot of money for a Coffee Grinder. Deciding to buy it was far from easy considering how new the product is and relatively little information on the product...other than the Name!

Enter Seattle Coffee Gear. Their information and videos helped me see the quality of the product, but I was still wrestling with other similarly priced "High End" Coffee Grinders. A call to their Customer Technical Support did the trick. The technician was very patient with me while I went through my list of questions. She was incredibly informative and if she didn't know the answer, she said so and then quickly put me on hold to get the answer. She was objective and made me very comfortable in making the decision and all I can say is WOW, I am so glad I did!

I have been using a Baratza Vario with my Quickmill QM-67 for about 2-years. Very disappointed in the quality of this Mid-Range Plastic Piece of Junk, but I was able to get a decent Espresso Pull out of it despite the difficulty in keeping the settings in place while grinding. That all changed when the Rocket Fausto arrived.

Stepless adjustment was great and the quality of the grind is incredible. I am somewhat disappointed in the length of time required to get a Double Shot (15g) Grind out of it as it takes a little more than 9 seconds, but I was able to dial in incredibly quickly. The quality of my Pull is incredible compared to my Vario. I instantly transformed my QM-67 into a great Machine simply by purchasing this incredible Grinder.

Quality wise, this Grinder is a Beast. Shiny Rocket All The Way. Manual was simple, not as detailed as I would like, but the machine is incredible intuitive so no real problem. I am very happy with my decision. (Posted on 2/14/2017)

First, I confess that I upgraded to a Rocket R58 and Fausto grinder from a Breville Barista Express, so I am taking a big leap here. But I researched and researched and the Fausto lives up to all the characteristics you might look for. The stepless adjustment is a breeze - super fine scale and very easy to use. The grind is very uniform with very little clumping and the timer is perfect to dial in your shot weight. I use a scale will 0.01g resolution and I find the shot weight to be very repeatable. I do occasionally adjust the grind time by 0.1 seconds or so over the course of a week, but mainly because I buy beans locally roasted within the past 3 days so they age a bit over a pound of coffee.

One tip you may use: I initially mounted the holder for the portafilter and then took it off. I would rather hold the portafilter under the chute and slightly shift it to evenly fill it without having to level it or getting a mound of coffee in the middle that will fall off when you take it out.

The Fausto is very easy to vacuum out and you can run Grindz through it, but it would be nice to have some guidance on opening the top to access the burrs. I do wish there was more technical information available but Rocket is not very forthcoming.

One possible demerit. Twice now in 3 months my grinder has stalled and I've had to remove the hopper and remove the beans in the feeder and manually turn it. I think a bean wedges in the burrs and for some reason the motor torque is not high enough to crack it.. Seems for $1000 the motor would be sized correctly. (Posted on 10/9/2016)
