Pasquini Moka Grinder w/Doser

Hi, there!

The doser on our Pasquini Moka isn't...well, dosing. The spring appears to be intact, but the blades aren't turning.

Any idea what we can do to fix this?

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.

Briel Java coffee grinder doser failure


My doser lever failed. I diassembled the doser housing (three screws in the base) and found the return spring had fractured. I did not have any spring steel (such as a piece of clock spring) so I found it possible to cut a piece out of an old feeler gauge (38 thou) using tinsnips. I cut to the correct length and glued into the plastic housing as originally -just saved myself $100 and more importantly to me, all the pain of getting the grind setting correct on a replacement grinder

Hi There is a spring that holds tension on the paul (ratchet) underneath that is broken. You need to replace the spring. Remove the plate on the bottom of the doser to see the paul and spring. The spring is flat on most Rocky's.

We have a Mazzer Super Jolly grinder and we can not get the dosing lever to move without pulling very hard while holding the machine with the other hand. Please help.


your doser mech is possibly gunked up with old grinds, first off try stripping it and cleaning it out, if that doesnt work you may need a new return spring but i think its far more likely to just need a good clean. this is from the mazzer mini but the doser design is pretty much the same so it should help you with disassembly

no, dont worry. Just return the lever by hand. Replace the spring and it will break again. It is a hassle to replace and not having it will not affect the function

Cleaning grinding blades


mazzers have 3 springs in grinder body, each one support for upper burr holder. check for them , if it is not the case than consider that the spring could come with coffee. often we see stones and metal parts geting between burrs.
clean it again and look good for 3 springs , if they are in their place, close the burrs to finest than go back for half of circle and grind coffee.
