Featured in The Wirecutter’s Best Coffee Makers for 2018.
Rancilio HSD-ROC-SD Rocky Espresso Coffee Grinder is burr coffee grinder with 50mm plate grinding burrs that can grind up to 7.7 pounds of coffee per hour. The coffee machine grinds directly into the portable filter for simple operation, and it features a detachable metal fork to hold the portable filter in place.
The Rancilio HSD-ROC-SD is equipped with a powerful 166-watt direct drive motor with a torque of 1725 RPM and is heavily insulated and has a thermal overload shut off switch that assists it in safeguarding against overheating and also safeguarding the burrs and motors if something gets jammed in the burrs. The motor, however, does it task quietly. Each of the units is tested before packaging, and this might leave a small trace of coffee residue from the prior tests.
The coffee machine features simple controls, and you can alter the grind setting by simply unlocking the lever and just quickly spinning the bean hopper. The machine can grind coffee to a fine powder in seconds. It comes with a tinted bean hopper that keeps just more than half a pound of whole bean coffee ready to grind on-demand.
The Rancilio HSD-ROC-SD has dimensions of 14 inches (height) x 9.75 inches (depth) x 5.25 inches (width), and it weighs about 18 pounds. The coffee maker is manufactured in Italy and comes with a 1-year warranty. It is also available with an additional one year warranty from some vendors.
