Rocket released a new grinder with 75mm burrs, the Super Fausto, to the market.
Rocket grinders are produced by Eureka.
Does anyone know on which Eureka model this Super Fausto is based?

Should be a pretty easy as there's only one 75mm burrset in the whole Eureka lineup (Olympus/Atom). What did you find and where did you have doubts?

My guess would be that the Atom 75 is the closest resemblance. Not a lot of info about the Super Fausto though - keep in mind that Eureka makes more than one kind of 75mm burr.

They make one type 75mm burrset but you can choose for different coatings. It's the Mythos burrsets which can be ordered as no coating, TiN (standard Mythos) or Red Speed.

There's at least one more geometry: Eureka Atom Pro (though I wouldn't expect it in the Super Fausto.. Still, lack of good info)

The closest analog is probably Nuova Simonelli G60. Eureka is part of the Nuova Simonelli Group. The G60 is a cone doserless grinder and the Super Fausto is likely same design wise except with 75mm burrs. The Fausto line has been around for a few years and Eureka has a great track record manufacturing. If they're introducing new models, people must be satisfied and they're selling.
