The MD series offers a range of dosing grinders designed to optimize the grinding of every dose of espresso. The powerful motor allows grinding at a low speed, which prevents the bean from overheating to maintain its aroma and keep the flavor intact. Rancilio offers models with different capacities. Robust and reliable, the entire MD range offers excellent performance at a low cost.

MD Rocky has grinding burrs with a diameter of 1.9 inch (50 mm), guaranteeing a production of 5.5-7.7 lb/hour (2.5-3.5 kg/h). The dosage is 0.2 Oz (7 g), with a capacity for 10.5 Oz (300 g) of coffee beans. Semi-automatic version.

The New Rancilio Rocky is the most durable coffee bean grinder available in its price range. It is extremely well made and we highly recommend it for home use and light commercial use. It is a dosing grinder, which makes it especially suited for use with an espresso machine. Although, it would have no problem grinding fine or coarse enough for any type of coffee/espresso machine you might have. The forks that are designed to hold your espresso machine portafilter in place are removable so that you may use any receptacle you want to catch the coffee. The Rocky is the grinder of choice for the finicky home barista due to its quality of grind and durability. Please note that most grinders are tested at the manufacturer and coffee grounds may be found in the grinder as a result. All machines sold are new unless otherwise clearly stated. 

This stainless steel version has a stainless steel back panel and base with a heavy-duty black case aluminum frame. This commercial-quality construction is durable and designed to match your other Rancilio products.

The Rocky can be quickly and accurately adjusted using its 55 different grind settings. To make the adjustment you just push down on a release lever and turn the bean hopper. You can quickly and easily change from course to fine. It can grind your beans into a fine powder for Turkish coffee or espresso and even course enough for French press. With a Rocky the most particular barista will be able to fine-tune their extractions to perfection.

The Rocky’s motor is legendary. It is the same motor that Rancilio uses in the Commercial MD40 grinder. It has a high temperature overload switch to prevent possible damage if a stone gets caught in the burrs.
Like the motor the grinding burrs on the Rocky are the same ones that Rancilio uses in the commercial MD40 grinder. They are the flat plate style and 50mm in diameter that are even designed to handle a commercial load. To turn the grinder on and off you just have to flip the switch that is located on the lower left front corner.

Both the bean hopper and ground coffee container are made of tinted plastic that are designed to help keep your coffee fresh. They both have covers that also help seal in the freshness.  The Rocky is designed to dispense the ground coffee directly in to your espresso machine portafitler. After the coffee gets ground it drops in the ground coffee container. Then just pull the handle and it will dispense approximately 7 grams of coffee through a small hole in the front directly into your portafitler.

  1. Heavy and professional budget grinder Review by JSUK

    I had a really good shopping experience with Cafe Italia; I was nervous about a post- Brexit border calamity but the dispatch and transport was very transparent and reassuring. The grinder arrived well packed and well on time. It works great, thank you.

  2. Great Looking grinder, great service. Review by Thomas

    I purchased a Rancilio coffee grinder from The Espresso Shop and the service was very good. The parcel from Italy was delayed a little, however, when I got in touch with the customer service by email, it was very efficiently and quickly rectified and the machine was dispatched on the same day. I have given 5 stars for the service, as to the machine, I only used it few times, so I can't comment on the machine in detail, maybe a little later. It is well built and sturdy machine and from my research it is the best coffee grinder in that price range. It certainly produces a great coffee grind for my La Paving espresso machine. So far I am pleased with it.
    Thank You.

  3. Superb 'budget' espresso grinder. Review by JSPL

    The pandemic caused me to desperately miss the coffee shop experience, resulting in my purchase of a second hand La Pavoni professional. I needed a decent espresso coffee grinder to go with it, the Rancillio Rocky seemed to be the most affordable, solidly constructed grinder on offer. Caffe Italia had a very competitive price and the service was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending both the Rocky grinder and Caffe Italia to any prospective home barista.

  4. Beautiful machine which however failed within a week Review by Coffee Friend

    I was so excited to receive the Rancilio Rocky! The espresso quality is fantastic. I researched grinders for weeks and settled on the Rancilio.
    Unfortunately after one week of use suddenly it stopped working! It makes a loud sound but no coffee comes out. Now I am just waiting to see if after-sales support will answer my email..

  5. Outstanding in every way Review by Andrew

    Outstanding Price, outstandingly quick delivery (all the way from Italy), outstanding coffee Flavour. The Rocky - Silvia combo is every bit as good as they say - a truly professional quality setup. I used the Silvia for around 5 years with a £150 grinder. I just didn't believe all the hype about spending at least as much on the grinder as on the espresso machine. Following a conversation with a local coffee roaster, I finally gave in about six months ago and ordered the Rocky. Result: The upgrade has revolutionised the flavour of my brews. The improvement in flavour extraction is so dramatic that it has to be tasted to be believed.

  6. Perfect Review by Balaja

    The grinder is as good as ít looks. Didn’t find any problem is this two weeks.

  7. A Great Machine Review by CK

    A really nice grinder, very easy to use and also looks good too.

  8. Excellent service and product. Review by Pixie

    I think this is an excellent coffee grinder - really good value for money, and the best deal came from Caffe Italia who delivered the product smartly. What’s not to like?

  9. Beautifully engineered machine Review by Coffee Chris

    I bought this as our first burr grinder. I spent so many weeks reviewing and watching videos of the many hundred grinders on the market. This brand kept cropping up as a little was clear to me the price offered on this website for this machine compared to other websites made it an absolute steal. I finally pulled the trigger - then waited in haist for the arrival unsure and questioning my decision. After what felt like a long wait (I ordered just before Easter meaning it didn't move from Stansted Airport during Easter - my own fault for ordering so close to the holidays) the product arrived double packaged. Setting up was a doddle and my beans were grindered to a consistency like I have never seen before.

    Did I make the right decision? Absolutely yes! What a gem of a machine. Fantastic! Has it turned my £200 espresso machine into something more akin to a £1000 espresso machine? Yes. I can not believe how much better this has made every drink I have made since buying it. I was mad on coffee before buying this - now it has taken over my life!

    So very happy.
