Back in 2007, Rocket Espresso came together to dedicate themselves to high end espresso and powerful commercial-grade machines for the barista at home. The word “Mozzafiato” roughly translates to “breath-taking” in Italian, and “Giotto” comes from the late Giotto di Bondone, an acclaimed Italian painter and architect from Middle Age Florence.
Rocket continues its artful tradition of beautiful, but powerful hand-crafted machines. Today an in-depth look at their Mozzafiato and Giotto machines.
Baratza innovations changed home grinding for espresso and specialty coffee enthusiasts. About a decade ago Baratza introduced the Vario grinder. And to this day the Vario is still recommended as the entry-point into higher-end home grinding for espresso and specialty coffee.
Nearly ten years later and the Vario is still a major player in home grinding - and Baratza continues to innovate. Today an in-depth look at their newest product the Sette 30 AP. It’s the more affordable younger brother of the Sette 270 which came out in 2016 and was awarded best new product by the specialty coffee association.
