Owning the Rocket Espresso Giotto Type V

Another stunner from Rocket Espresso, the Giotto Type V is a heat exchange espresso machine that combines high performance with Rocket’s high style. As with all of Rocket’s espresso machines, the Giotto Type V boasts awesome aesthetic elements like its bevelled side panels; tapered, height adjustable feet; and easy-grip gear design steam and hot water knobs featuring Rocket’s signature “R.” Said knobs are non-compression and slide easily open, for powerful steaming. The Giotto Type V is capable of brewing and steaming simultaneously, making it an excellent machine for producing several milk-based drinks, one right after another. The traditional E61 group head is present on the Giotto Type V to ensure a temperature stable path for the brew water, by syphoning hot water from the boiler, through the group, and back. Rocket’s E61 has been thoughtfully reimagined to include a dual pre-infusion system, made up of a static chamber and mechanical working piston, both of which work together to ensure the puck is thoroughly saturated for the best possible extraction. Rocket was also one of the first manufacturers to include a PID temperature controller on their heat exchange machines, of which the Giotto is one. This controller, hidden behind the drip tray so as not to disrupt the sleek design, keeps the temperature stable to the degree, and uses 4 settings to accommodate different roast styles. This innovation on Rocket’s part has become an industry standard on many HX machines these days.

Internally, the Giotto Type V houses a large 1.8 L copper boiler and 1200 watt heating element, and, integrated sensors monitor the boiler and reservoir levels for low volumes, alerting you and, if necessary, shutting off automatically so as not to let the boiler run dry. One of our favorite things about the Rocket machines are the accessories. They include a full color training guide complete with a USB thumb drive with extra content. Plus, rather than include a chintzy plastic tamper, Rocket throws in a branded metal tamper so you’re always ready to brew like a pro. The Giotto’s effortlessly timeless look and innovative integration of the PID make the Giotto an excellent addition to any home barista’s kitchen. If you love Rocket’s style, but prefer a smaller model, the Appartamento slides into any space at just 9” wide; for even greater functionality, take a look at the Giotto Evoluzione V2, which can be plumbed directly into a water line.

PID Temperature Controller

PID Temperature Controller

Generally, heat exchange machines require a cooling flush after steaming or before brewing a shot if the machine has been sitting; however, by integrating a PID to regulate the temperature, Rocket removes the need for a cooling flush. The PID temperature controller uses 4 signal parameters to ensure the best results in the cup.

Reimagined E61 Brew Group

Reimagined E61 Brew Group

In a traditional E61 brew group, hot water is constantly circulated between the boiler and brew-group to ensure proper brewing temperature. Rocket incorporates a dual pre-infusion system into their E61, which consists of a chamber and mechanical working piston, to aid the extraction and ensure the grounds are fully saturated upon brewing.

Heavy-Duty Boiler

Heavy-Duty Boiler

At the heart of the Giotto Type V is its 1.8 liter copper boiler, equipped with a 1200 watt heating element. The copper design shows improved heat retention and temperature stability, resulting in greater energy efficiency. Passive heat from the boiler also heats the removable cup warmer on the top of the Giotto Type V.

No-Burn Stainless Steel Steam Wand

No-Burn Stainless Steel Steam Wand

Rocket Espresso’s patented cool-touch technology ensures that the steam wand is safe to use, since only the nozzle gets hot. The heavy-duty wand has a two-hole tip and is engaged with a large ergonomic control knob at the top of the wand. Below the steam wand is the steam pressure gauge; the machine is at steaming pressure when the gauge measures around 1 bar.
