Rocket Espresso Faustino Grinder Pre-2022 Model in Appartamento Copper
Owning the Rocket Espresso Faustino Grinder
The Rocket Espresso Faustino is a fashionably small grinder with simple functionality that won’t get in the way of grinding for espresso. This is one of the smallest grinders we’ve had the opportunity to test and yet it has the performance a good espresso deserves. The star feature boasted by the Faustino is its stepless micrometric adjustments, giving it nearly unlimited grind settings to play with. The 50 mm steel burrs can be adjusted with the micrometric adjustment knob near the hopper which moves only the bottom burr when adjusting the grind setting. In short, this means that you won’t have to readjust your grind setting after cleaning the burrs and grinding chamber. Plus, the Rocket Faustino is equipped with anti-vibration technology that allows it to grind quietly (very quietly). Even though it’s smaller than Rocket’s Macinatore Fausto grinder, the Faustino has just as large of a hopper that can hold up to 1.5 pounds of beans.
A small touchscreen display keeps everything neat and simple with the option to choose between a single dose, double dose, or manual dosing. Visually, the display has a clean design and all UI elements are arranged for easy reading. The pause feature lets you pause your grind or cancel it altogether with just a push of a button. Just leave the portafilter in the holder, press your desired amount, and watch the Faustino dispense fluffy grounds from the chute. If you like the Faustino, but need something a little bigger and more powerful, then the Rocket Macinatore Fausto may be more your speed.
Rocket’s Faustino is certainly pretty to look at, and with it’s solid features and small footprint, the Faustino can be a good companion on a kitchen counter. Pair it with your Appartamento for a matching look!
