  1. because it didn't work a wilde the upper burr holder could be jammed, carefully take id off, clean it good and then put it back until you touch lower burr with the upper.
  2. to get starting point you adjust burrs to touch each other. when they touch each other you have finest grinding, after you hear metal voice you turn back 3 dots and grind only for 1 dose. you check it, if it goes to slow, you go one more back and clean grinder, THAN you grind 1 dose more. 2 or 3 times and you will get perfect grinding.

Our Silvia, almost 8 years old, is putting out shots too fast (10 to 15 seconds), even though we've been dialing down the grind on Rocky more fine, putting more coffee in, and tamping harder. We...


Try to redo what you have been doing, but set it to the extremes to see if everything is functioning. If you set the grind say to 4, it should come out very slow or maybe not at all.

Rancilio Rocky w/ doser: clean sweep of coffee grounds


The Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder is a superb, highly recommended machine, but its doser is pretty useless in the home. First reason: you want to grind coffee instants before you brew or pull your espresso shot; otherwise, the grinds just lose aromatics and flavor. The doser only works for multiple doses, so you're better off just grinding the amount you need each time. If you're buying a Rocky, get the doserless model.

If you have the doser model, like I do, you also find that the vanes which sweep the coffee into your portafilter or cone leave a layer of grounds on the doser floor. If not cleaned out, they turn rancid. There are coffee web sites with fairly complicated instructions on how to modify the vanes to do a clean sweep. Here's the simple way:

Flip up the doser cover, and spin the vanes while pressing your finger lightly on the outer top edge of one vane. The vanes have enough play so the pressure brings one into light contact with the doser floor, sweeping 99% of the grounds into your waiting portafilter.

Coffee exits portafilter too quickly. Rocky grinder with burrs set as close as possible. Grinders and rubber recently replaced.


Sounds like your group handle needs a new basket (the piece with all the small holes in it). Presuming that grind is set correctly and that coffee is being tamped enough? Sometimes as the basket gets older, the holes can get larger and coffee doesn't have enough time to infuse with the coffee before exiting.

Have Rancilio Rocky for about 3 months. Noticed grinds around base from time to time. Yesterday picked up machine, saw accumulation. Tapped base, more came out. Took off base, about 2 oz. of grinds inside....


Hi There could be a piece broken around the chute where it comes out of the grinder and enters the grounds chamber. There is a rectangular opening in the plastic that can get broken causing the grounds to enter the machine.

Silvia pressure issue


The Silvia comes equipped with a "pressurestat" that may have gone out of adjustment. Do a google search on that and you will find numerous pictoral guides on how to do this. The owner's manual that came with the machine (they have electronic versions at espressotec.com, among other places) will also give you basic instructions. Good luck!

Have a Rancilio silvia machine, grind coffee with a Rancilio rocky. Problem is that sometimes... more often than not, the coffee coming out of the portafiller spouts comes out quickly and sprays all over...


Try taking the portafilter out and run water through it as if you were making an espresso. check if the water coming out is very fast. I believe there is a screen there that is held in by a flat screw. If you take that off you should be able to see light through it. If you can't soak it in some cleaner until you can see light through it. There could be a couple of things causing this. The other thing that comes to mind is that the boiler has to much pressure but it should say on your gauge if that is happening. You might find that it just needs a good cleaning.

Grinder setting for the Rocky SD In setting the spacing of the grinders:where are the "grinders" located? (I am assuming that they are under the plastic cover at the bottom of the bean container-right?)....


Your assumption is correct.
But you do not have to (and you can not) see the grinder wheels to adjust the grinder. The numbers on the bean container indicate the level. All you have to do is to push down the release lever (on the right side) and then turn the container -- towards right for finer grindings (lower number) or to left for coarser coffee. Around 12 is usually suitable for espresso machines.

Coffee not strong enough


I had a problem like this with my first proper Gaggia. Cutting a long story short I found that the coffee I was using wasn't ground finely enough. The Illy stuff that comes in cans was ok, but pretty much everything else preground (incuding Lavazza!) was too coarse.

Sidestep the problem by getting yourslef a Rancilio Rocky grinder then you can adjust the grind in TINY increments for your perfect coffee moment...
