Rocket Espresso machines are made by hand in Milan, Italy. They feature the legendary E61 group head which allows for easy and consistent pre-infusion. The build quality and materials are on par with the commercial espresso machines we use and sell to our wholesale customers, allowing for our tech to service these machines if the need arises.
In our opinion, the Rocket espresso machines are the best home machines on the market. Additionally, the price point is unmatched by other brands of home espresso machines without any compromises in quality or function. This is the last espresso machine you will need, or want, to buy.
The R58 is a dual boiler espresso machine featuring PID temperature control, full commercial rotary pump, and the option of using a direct water connection or the water reservoir supply.
Independently operating dual boilers and superior thermo siphon system design allows for unprecedented stability in the espresso boiler with increased levels of both steam pressure and hot water supply available from the independent service boiler.
Purchase of any Rocket Espresso machine from us includes a three hour espresso brewing class at our roast works on S. Broadway. Scheduling and information can be found by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What roast is your coffee?
We roast to a profile unique to each coffee which is designed to highlight the natural flavors of the bean while emphasizing sweetness and balanced acidity. On the spectrum of "typical roast" levels we would generally be in the medium to medium light on all coffees.
Do you offer ground coffee?
We do not. One of the best ways to brew really excellent coffee is to grind within 30 minutes of brewing. You'd be surprised the difference this makes, and our rule of thumb is grinding fresh on a very cheap grinder is better than pre-grinding on a very nice grinder.
Why is your coffee so expensive?
Really excellent coffee is picked by hand, and goes through multiple sorting processes and methods to improve quality. The higher number of processes involved in removing defects, underripe beans, and damaged beans the higher the amount of labor and the lower the yield from the farm. The extra work and higher amount of bad coffee removed is the primary reason for the increase in price.
Secondarily, we are trying to increase the amount farmers can earn for their coffee. We need to prove to them and their children (most importantly) that they can make a good living growing coffee. If this doesn't happen more and more farms will stop producing when children move to the city because of the low incomes in the coffee industry.
