Simple to use, produces a high quality grind, and built to last, the Rancilio Rocky is an excellent grinder for home and light-duty commercial use. The doserless version offers great versatility for your various grinding needs.

The Rancilio Rocky Doserless is here with a redesigned coffee drip tray and a new smoked blue "bean hopper" to help keep UV rays out! Grind to order with the doserless model! The "portafilter fork" is even removable to grind espresso, drip grind or heaven forbid, percolator grind for grandma, into a container (max. 5 1/2" high).

A new switch on the lower front of the Rocky activates the grinder motor (in addition to the main power switch on the side). We still recommend the Rocky Doser if you are making more than a few drinks during the day since the doser acts as a handy receptacle for any extra precious coffee that is ground in error. We are asked on a regular basis which model to choose - doser or doserless. Our answer - whichever one you choose, you will wish you had the other one 50% of the time!

The Rocky uses the same hardened steel cutting burrs as the Rancilio MD40 commercial grinder and has a heavy-duty thermally protected motor. Because the Rocky uses large 50mm (2 inch) cutting burrs, the powerful motor is able to run at a lower RPM. This ensures that the coffee does not burn and also makes the Rocky a very fast and quiet grinder (without beans grinding, the motor is virtually silent). Its high throughput of coffee (about 8 seconds per shot) will reward you time and time again, when you are in a hurry or late for work.

Although called grinders, true espresso grinders, such as the Rocky, more properly cut the coffee. This ensures that the coffee packs easily and provides consistent resistance regardless of the tamp pressure. The Rocky has a nearly infinite range of settings for super accurate espresso settings. and can easily handle extra-fine settings such as what's required by the Rancilio Silvia.
This is no light-weight grinder
Weighing in at over 17 lbs, the main body of the grinder is constructed out of die-cast aluminum, painted over with porcelain-enamel paint for durability and scratch-resistance The painted iron-frame underneath provides long-term strength. The 304-brushed stainless steel accent is the same finish as the Silvia, but will look good beside any espresso machine.

Built to last a lifetime
Professionals will change the burrs after 500 lbs, but most residential users should get 750 lbs easily with no adverse effect on their espresso. Lets see... at 63 espressos per pound and 1 lb per week, well you do the math!

Which Rocky grinder to buy - doser or doserless?
The Rocky Doser is handy for larger volume users and also acts as a handy receptacle if you overfill your basket. You can also "grind to order;" just turn on the grinder and keep flicking the lever until your basket is full. With the Rocky Doserless, just place your portafilter handle under the spout and grind - you will soon perfect the art of gauging the correct amount. Remove the "stainless fork" and you can grind large amounts of coffee into a storage container or equivalent.

    Very Happy

    Such a huge step up from my little hand held grinder. Had a commercial Rancilio grinder and espresso machine years ago and so very happy to be back.

    Worth it

    Posted by CD on 2015 Nov 27th

    Received in a timely manner, easy set up, Zero mark on Grind was bang on, no adjustments needed. The fun part was trying to get the right grind, this took about a 1 pound of coffee before the correct setting was found (using the Breville Dual Boiler 900XL,, scale was used to learn what 18g looks like in the portafilter) . Once found though....mmm. Minimal "flyaway" grind with portafilter under chute.
    Solid heavy unit, may be a problem if you switch beans as hopper is not removable.
    I'm very happy with it.

    Has Deficiencies

    Posted by Doug on 2015 May 7th

    Bought this model because we have 2 - 4 roasts on the go at any one time and grind enough for just one espresso at a time. We do not want impurities from the previous grinding to contaminate the new grind. Unfortunately that is almost impossible with this grinder as the hopper retains a few beans in its crevices and the exit spout has a ledge that retains almost a teaspoon of ground coffee, all waiting to mix into the next grind. Definitely disappointed and I would not buy this grinder again.

    Perfect Grinder

    Posted by Tony on 2015 Jan 10th

    Just received my Rocky grinder from espressotec, and I am stoked! This thing is bomber! Espressotec's online site is easy to navigate and I had the grinder on my countertop in 3 days. Perfect!

    Don't buy the Silvia w/o this grinder

    Posted by Bryan on 2014 Nov 8th

    Buying this grinder made all the difference when making espresso with my Rancilio Silvia. I was using a Breville burr grinder, with satisfactory results, but to me that was akin to buying a Porsche and using low-octane gas. Once I got the Rocky, it took the coffee to a whole other level. It's expensive, but I think you get what you pay for. Overall, I'm glad I made this purchase.

    Another happy experience with Espressotec

    Posted by Dominic on 2014 Nov 7th

    I just purchased a Rocky doserless grinder. Love the pulse power switch feature. I have been using the Rocky doser model for a few years and the only reason I got rid of it is because I gave it to my daughter so her family can enjoy good coffee as well. I love shopping online and Espressotec is one of my favourite places to shop, And I always stop by the store whenever I'm in Vancouver, recently saw their new store and it looks great !!

    Well built, good grind quality and range

    Posted by Russ on 2014 Aug 16th

    I bought the Rocky to accompany my Silvia V3. After reading several reviews of the Rocky vs. other grinders such as the Bratzas, I decided on the Rocky for its build quality and competitive grinding ability.
    After ordering the grinder it arrived from Espressotec in 3 days (to Alberta). Impressive!
    It did not take long to dial in the grinder for the beans I had along with the Silvia. There is some clumping at the finer settings but I don't think that's avoidable at least not at this price point (or in this very dry climate).
    I chose the doserless model and am very happy I did. There aren't beans being wasted sitting in the hopper and the chute discharges nicely into the portafilter and with a bit of practice spillage can eliminated almost entirely.
    So far I have only used the Rocky for espresso but another reason I bought it was that it has the range to make French press grinds as well. Since I'm only on setting 9 I have lots of room to go coarser.
    All in all I feel it was a solid choice and with the right care and maintenance I'm sure it will last me a long time.

    Should've gotten the rocky first

    Posted by Mario on 2014 Jun 22nd

    I hoped that I could get away with a less expensive grinder for my silvia which I purchased last year. I started with the Espressione Professional and used it for 3 months before the grind consistency degraded so much that my shots were pulling in 10s on the finest setting. From there I moved to the Capresso Infinity, which is a decent grinder but very limited on the grind size settings with only 16 options. I tried for 2 months to get it just right and it was always either too fine or too coarse - very frustrating. I finally gave up and got the rocky. All I can say is that it was meant to go with the silvia - they look great side by side and I should have gone for the rocky right away instead of wasting my time with other cheaper grinders.
