What is the Faustino?
This is the latest domestic grinder from Rocket Espresso Milano - The Faustino.
It's amazingly well built, aesthetically beautiful, ergonomic in use and looks absolutely stunning next to the Rocket Espresso Machines themselves.
Think the size of a Eureka Mignon Vs a much slicker cousin of the Mazzer Mini and you're pretty close.
Made by 'You know who' - the best grinder producers in the world right now.
Is it any good?
The Faustino is probably the best of both worlds when it comes to high-quality domestic electric espresso grinders. It's produced by Eureka, who are responsible for producing the best domestic grinder on the market (The Mignon) and the best commercial grinder in the industry (The Mythos).
It fuses the performance of Eureka grinders, with their patented micro-metric adjustment dial alongside the design aesthetic of the Rocket range.
What is it capable of?
The Faustino is capable of grinding to an excellent standard of espresso grind. Speed wise you are looking at around 9 seconds for a 17g double shot. This is due to its 50mm flat steel burrs.
It's a dedicated espresso grinder, meaning it grinds out of the shute (on-demand grinding), directly into your espresso handle (portafilter), reducing waste and maintaining freshness.
How do I use it?
The Faustino is very easy to program, with its touch screen controls housed on the top of the dosing funnel. You can store two programs (volumes based on time), adjustable with plus / minus buttons for 0.1-second intervals. It's a simple and very effective interface, making set up and dial-in easy.
Which version is this?
This is the Matte Black finish version. It is geared to sit nicely next to either fo the Siera (Black) Appartamentos or the Cronometro or R58 ranges of machines. The perfect pairing.
Why buy from us?
We are an official Rocket dealership (9 years), providing genuine full 2-year warranties. We carry all parts for repair/service and do all our own technical support in-house - not outsourced.
We offer a fair and informative service, where we will guide you on the right machine for you, not just the most expensive.
All machines are re-tested before they leave us so that we know 100% that they are in perfect working and aesthetic condition when they reach you. Factory testing is good quality, but these machines come delivered in trucks from Milan to the UK, where they go through considerable movement along the way.
The Rocket Faustino comes with a 2-year back-to-base warranty (domestic use only) with Machina. See our Terms and Conditions page for all the information.
