About the Product
Grinding for espresso? Let the Virtuoso’s professional-grade 40mm conical burrs perform their magic for a consistent, fine grind. How about a French Press? The Virtuoso can handle that too, with a particle size uniformity that gives you consistency from cup to cup. In fact, the Virtuoso is so consistent at both the coarse and fine ends of the grind range that we consider it to be in a class all by itself — and so do many of the micro- and specialty-roasters who swear by it.
Perfect companion to the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine. The Rocky SS is a doser burr coffee grinder with 50mm plate grinding burrs found in entry-level commercial grinders. Capable of grinding up to 7.7lbs per hour the Rocky SS will be sure to keep up with your needs. The Rocky SS features a dosing chamber which holds freshly ground coffee. At the pull of a handle, just like the pros, about 7 grams of coffee are dispensed directly into the porta filter. The Rocky SS features a plastic fork to hold your porta filter in place. The motor of the Rocky SS is a 140-watt direct drive motor that is extremely powerful. Spinning at 1725 RPM's. This powerful grinder is quiet during operation. Rocky SS features simple controls. Change the grind setting with a simple unlock of the lever and a quick spin of the bean hopper. It can grind coffee to a fine powder or course grind in seconds. The tinted bean hopper of the Rocky SS keeps just over 1/2 a pound of whole bean coffee fresh and ready to grind on-demand.
