Spotlighted by GQ magazine as one of the “Best Stuff of 2012,” the Presso ROK is an environmentally friendly manual espresso maker created with durable engine-grade metal guaranteed to last at least 10 years. Going above and beyond simple espresso, the innovative ROK comes with a stainless steel frother to produce rich milk for lattes, cappuccinos and macchiatos -- all without using one bit of electricity.
Created with traditionalists and espresso enthusiasts in mind, this London-designed espresso maker lets you exact complete control over brewing pressure using the two levers located on the sides of the ROK. Since this espresso maker brews with ground coffee, so you're not limited by capsule and pod selection.
The ROK comes packaged in a modern reusable storage tin, complete with accessories including a tamper/measuring spoon, and detachable double-shot spout. Should any of the metal parts fail within a decade of your original purchase, ROK will replace the components gratis. When all is said and done, the Rok Espresso Maker is truly the complete kit to make all the coffees you love.
1. Tamp ground coffee into the portafilter. 2. Pour in freshly boiled water into the water cylinder and raise the levers. 3. Squeeze the levers down to extract espresso.

Hello! I was wondering if the model that you have is the one with the glass container vs the plastic in the original? I understand that ROK upgraded the receptacle from plastic to glass.
The only version of the reservoir produced with the Rok is the plastic style that is sold with all of the machines. At this times, we haven't heard anything indicating that this has changed at any point. I would consider that information incorrect.
I own the original version, Presso, and have had it for 5 years and I LOVE it. I highly recommend this espresso maker! I was wondering if the white filter disc will be available. It is extrememely hard to find. I need a replacement because I stored the maker for a while forgetting to empy out the grounds and it molded and the smell permeated the disc inside. So, to whomever buys this, always clean it out after use! I can only find a replacement in europe for only like $3 but the shipping is killer! Let me know, thanks!
Jan - We just started carrying the ROK espresso machines. We should have replacement parts very soon.
What is the size of the portafilter?
It is a 49 MM portafilter and we are working on sourcing a tamper as well. Stay tuned as it will happen in the near future.
Would I be able to do double espressos on this?
Yes, the ROK can make a double espresso shot:

In a Nutshell
Attractive and functional, this machine produced rich, flavorful espresso and velvety crema with the pressing down of two levers.
Like the AeroPress, the ROK is designed for simplicity. The 11-inch tool consists of two long, curved levers attached to a wishbone-shaped body, a clear hot-water chamber with markings for single and double shots, and a portafilter for grounds. Also included are a measuring scoop that doubles as a tamper, an adapter for making two single shots simultaneously, and a syringe-like milk foamer (you simply stick it into milk and pump the plunger to froth).
The instructions were clear, and the superb result—rich, full-bodied espresso topped with a nice crema—had test cooks lining up for shots.
Note: The ROK is the newest incarnation of the Presso Espresso Machine
