Owning the Rocket Espresso Mozzafiato Evoluzione R
An upgrade to the Mozzafiato Type V, the Mozzafiato Evoluzione R from Rocket Espresso retains all of the aesthetic features of the Type V while adding a few integral upgrades into the mix. For instance, like the Type V, the Evoluzione R is a heat exchange PID machine; but unlike the Type V, the Evoluzione R features a near-silent rotary pump, and can be plumbed directly into a water line. We love the direct plumb feature, especially since you can easily incorporate a filtration system, such as BWT, which removes all harmful minerals and the need to descale your machine while it’s in use. Rocket, ever the innovators, was one of the first manufacturers to incorporate a PID into their heat exchangers, though it has now become an industry standard on high-end HXs. The PID is hidden behind the drip tray so as not to distract from the machine’s intricate design, and it can be adjusted across four settings to accommodate different roast styles. They’re also one of only a handful of manufacturers to make adjustments to the E61 group, which circulates water from the boiler through the group to aid in temperature stability and is a staple on most prosumer machines. Just like on the rest of their machines, Rocket integrated a dual pre-infusion system on the Mozzafiato Evoluzione R, consisting of a mechanical working piston which works progressively within a static pre-infusion chamber for fully saturated, crema-rich extractions. The PID controller keeps brew water temperature stable to the degree, and, once combined with this thoughtfully redesigned group, the Mozzafiato Evoluzione R is equipped to deliver super consistent shots. The Mozzafiato Evoluzione R really dominates the space, and its espresso game is on point.
Internally, the Mozzafiato Evoluzione R is identical to its Giotto counterpart. It 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. Of course, plumbing the machine in eliminates this problem altogether. The Evoluzione R also features the same height adjustable feet and no-burn steam wands as on the Type V version. 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 Mozzafiato is reliable and sleek, rounding out any home barista’s set up and fully capable of cranking out shots for days (and months, and years). If you love Rocket’s style but need your machine to slide into a small space, at just 9” wide, the Appartamento is the way to go; though, if you need even more power and capacity, the dual boiler R58 is an excellent step up.
Commercial Rotary Pump
The Giotto Evoluzione R is equipped with a commercial grade rotary pump with external pressure adjustment controls, allowing users to fine tune pump pressure while viewing the dedicated pressure gauge. Rocket reconfigured the internal architecture of the pump to increase efficiency and reduce noise creating the one of the quietest rotary pumps around.
Direct Water Line Connection
A dedicated control switch allows users to alternate between drawing water from the 2.5 liter reservoir or plumbing the Giotto Evoluzione R directly into a water line. We recommend incorporating a BWT water filter into the plumb line to remove scale building minerals from the water, thus improving the coffee taste and longevity of your machine.
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 settings to ensure the best results in the cup, and can be adjusted to accommodate different roast styles.
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.
