MADE BY HAND
Fatto a Mano which is Italian for "made by hand" is the tradition of craftsmen working on machines using a labor intensive process that gives attention to the smallest details. That is the tradition being kept alive by Rocket Espresso Milano. Their products are as functional as they are beautiful to look at. That is certainly the case with Appartamento.
Just one look at this espresso machine and you know right away that it is loaded with features. Here are some of the things that set it apart:
E61 Group Head - It uses the famous E61 Group Head. For those who are familiar with espresso machines, the E61 Group Head is known as the standard in the industry because it is designed to maintain the temperature throughout the whole extraction process. Any fluctuation during the process can have an effect on the quality of espresso.
Heat-Exchanging Boiler - The 1.8 liter boiler of the Appartamento has a heat exchanger which allows milk frothing and coffee brewing at the same time. It is also insulated to keep the temperature stable and costs low.
Professional-level Gauge - The Appartamento has a gauge which show the pressure inside the boiler. You can use the information that it provides to improve the espresso that you can produce.
Reliable Pump - Delivering the right level of pressure when it is needed, the vibration pump used by Rocket engineers on the Appartamento is also quiet and has a unique device that reduces back pressure, which prevent blocks from happening.
Safe Wands - The machine is equipped with wands that were designed for safety. It can be handled without having to worry about being scalded by steam or being burnt.
Quality Accessories - The Appartamento comes with an aluminum tamper, dual portafilters, a basket, a brush, a scoop, a piece of cloth for cleaning, and the manuals.
Stainless Steel Housing - The Appartamento uses an AISI 304 stainless steel case that is elegant, practical, and durable.
Dual Pre-Infusion - This espresso machine from Rocket has a mechanical pre-infusion. Pre-infusion refers to the first few seconds of the brewing when the coffee is immersed in water under low pressure.
With all the features that were mentioned, you are sure to enjoy using the Rocket Appartamento. Here are just a few of the benefits:
Easy to Control - The boiler and freshwater reservoir are both controlled by a microprocessor. That means there is little that you have to do. It’s all automatic.
Perfect for Tight Spaces - The Appartamento is built to be compact. It has all the usual features and performance of a Rocket Espresso machine, while being small enough for use in places where the space is limited.
Easy Access - One of the usual problems encountered with other espresso machines is that it’s difficult to access the water reservoir. With the Appartamento, that is not a problem because the tank has a separate lid. You do not have to take the machine apart just to get some water in.
Unmatched Elegance - Rocket Espresso machines are more than just efficient devices for making quality coffee, they are also elegant pieces of craftsmanship that can occupy a place of pride in any kitchen.
