Rocket Appartamento, Giotto, Mozzafiato, R58 and R60v Coffee Machines

We completely love the Rocket Espresso range of Coffee Machines. Their domestic home coffee machine line up really allows Rocket as a brand really to own home espresso in the 2-6k price range, with a home coffee machines that just rock! The range starts with a compact vibration pump e61 group head heat exchange Rocket Appartamento and is closely followed by the iconic Rocket Giotto and Rocket Mozzafiato. Then moving into the rotary pump e61 group head dual boiler machine you have the Rocket R58 and then the range is currently topped by the pressure profiling R60V. The R9One is soon to be released and will be their flagship unit.

These are commercial built espresso coffee machine, packaged into home size units perfect for the kitchen bench. These manual machines are our speciality, and by manual we refer to cafe style machines with group heads. These home coffee machines in many ways are a commercial coffee machine in a home espresso machine size which take up less bench space and consume less power. So they have either a heat exchange, dual boiler or multi-boiler setups meaning you can do coffee and steam simultaneously. Temperature is controlled by either a pressure stat, or a pid with temperature adjustable in increments of 0.1 degrees celsius. And pumps are either vibrating, or commercial rotary pumps. These machine produce awesome results, but do require more effort than a fully automatic one button machine.

The start goes back to the early 1990's when espresso machine engineer Ennio Berti resigns from one of Italy's major espresso machine manufacturing companies. He believes the world is ready for a coffee revolution - a commercial quality domestic espresso machine. Starting at the very end of the process (the perfect cup of coffee), Ennio works back to create the ultimate espresso machine, and Andrew and Daniele have continued with this process. Rocket coffee machines not only look and are finished beautifully, they are well thought of and designed to have a modern heart inside a traditional looking yet simple exterior. They have worked hard to keep flashy digital displays away from visible sight in order for the machine to be at one with the barista, allowing the barista to be present in the beautiful moment that is making espresso coffee.

On visits to the Rocket Espresso factory in Milan Italy, Pedro Lara fell in love with the brand and understood the why behind Rocket when speaking to the owner company owner Andew and Daniele. Andew and Daniele bring philosophies from opposing sides of the world into their Milan factory to make the best espresso machines they possibly can. We believe this has been a winning combination and one which will continue to grow from strength to strength. Most importantly, Pedro Lara is strongly against selling products for the sake of selling products, he loves and resonates with Andrew and Daniele's ethics and this to us is key to promoting beautiful products to a beautiful world. Rocket Espresso's passion and ethical approach, combined with an unparalleled level of bench testing, explains why Rocket is one of the best selling premium home espresso machine brands in Australia.
