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.
It wouldn't be a stretch to say that I fell in love with Rocket Espresso machines after my dalliance with the Rocket Espresso R58 Dual Boiler machine. So, I was ecstatic this week when two new Rocket Espresso boxes turned up in my office. The Evoluzione V2 machines are the most advanced iterations of Rocket's line of Cellini and Giotto home espresso machines and I could hardly wait to get them out of the box.
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.
The latest addition to the performance-driven Rocket Espresso Giotto line, the Premium Plus retains many of the commercial components and functionality that made its predecessor a favorite with espresso enthusiasts.
