"Rocket Espresso Machines; Italian Design for the At-Home Barista…"
Rocket Espresso was born in 2007 in Milan, Italy, when the commercial company ECM (Espresso Company Milano) decided to focus on commercial products. Three espresso enthusiasts – Jeff Kennedy, Danielle Berenbruch, and Andrew Meo – decided to “give a new lease on life” to the domestic products ECM had created, starting with the Cellini and the Giotto.
These prosumer machines boast commercial grade features, like lead-free copper boilers, Faema E61 brew-group, No-Burn Stainless Steel Steam Wand, quiet pumps, Sirai pressure stats, and stainless steel and chrome construction while still embodying a classic Italian design that's a style trend-setter in any setting, either the home, retreat or office.
The perfect companion for any semi-automatic espresso machine, the 7″ x 4” RocketEspresso Tamping Station looks good anywhere but especially next to your Rocket Espresso machine. Fashioned from stainless steel for long life, and covered in a rubberized black coating, it holds your portafilter level and straight while you tamp the grounds. It even has a parking place for your tamper so it will always be at hand.
The stylish 58mm Rocket Espresso Tamper is made of polished stainless steel to match the company’s line of elite espresso machines and grinders. The base has been engraved with the Rocket Espresso Milano logo and the handle features an ergonomic design for your comfort. This Rocket Espresso Tamper has a convex bottom.
Compatible with all Rocket Espresso Giotto and Cellini models, this 58mm bottomless portafilter lets you perfect and enjoy the art of espresso. Without spouts, this portafilter gives you an unobstructed view of the entire extraction process as it progresses. The Rocket Espresso Bottomless Portafilter is made of chrome-plated brass for maximum heat stability.
The perfect accessory for manual and semi-automatic espresso machines, the Rocket Espresso Stainless Steel Knock Box lets you dispose of spent pucks in style. The polished finish and its rounded shape make this knock box stand out from the crowd. The knock bar is protected by a rubber wrap to absorb the force from your portafilter. The Rocket Espresso stainless steel knock box has a large 30oz capacity and features durable construction capable of withstanding daily use.
One of the most important aspects of making great coffee drinks is paying attention to the quality of the water you use. It is essential to filter out those elements that affect taste while maintaining a certain balance of good minerals for providing the essential base of any coffee drink. The Rocket Espresso Water Reservoir Filter is designed to fit both Giotto and Cellini machines.
