      What is the Rocket Appartamento?

      Rocket are the market leader for premium grade domestic espresso machines. The Appartamento V1 HX (Heat Exchanger) is Rocket’s compact domestic machine, geared for use in the home or office, to produce artisan quality coffee. It's a classic Italian designed espresso machine, constructed from steel and finished in chrome. Rocket machines are known as pro-sumer (commercial grade for domestic use), delivering coffee for domestic use, that's as close to commercial grade as you will find at this level.

      This is the Nero or Serie Nera version of the Copper Appartamento, with a powder coated body around the back and sides of the machine.

      Who is it suited to?

      The Appartamento is really geared towards people wanting to drink great coffee in the home or office. It's aimed at those wanting to replicate cafe quality coffee, without going over the £1300 mark. If you are looking to upgrade from the likes of a Sage, Gaggia Classic, Di-Longhi or similar, this is an excellent choice and will deliver much (MUCH) better results.

      How is it better than what I have already?

      It's an HX (Heat Exchanger), which means it's a huge jump up in quality from the likes of a Gaggia Classic, Rancilio Silvia, Dualit, Di-Longhi etc. All these machines are single boiler 'cycle' machines, so they suffer from poor temperature and pressure stability - essential for brewing good espresso. The HX design supports excellent temperature & pressure, so it can brew espresso and steam milk accurately and at the same time without missing a beat.

      The design is further enhanced by the E61 group head, which is the large curved piece of metal at the front of the machine (weighing approx 5.1KG), which is what drives it's solid temperature stability. Together, the HX boiler and E61 group help deliver rich, silky espresso that is much higher in quality than any cycle machine.

      What is the build quality like?

      The Appartamento is built like a tank. It weighs around 25KG, so it's reassuringly heavy. The unit is housed around a solid stainless steel chassis, so it's very stable. The attention to detail is exceptional, with excellent finish both inside and outside the machine. It has beautiful clean lines across it's production, which give it a luxury feel.

      How do I use it?

      Once the reservoir is filled up, it takes around 12 mins to get fully up to temperature (20 if you want to see full heat transfer across the entire machine). It's a manual activated machine, meaning you have to manually pull the lever up to start the shot and down to end it. It's also a stand alone machine, so you need a separate grinder to run alongside it (See HERE). It has separate (cool to touch) steam wand for steaming milk and hot water tap for topping up black coffees.

      What do I get included?

      Inside the box you will also find: Single & dual portafilters, single, double & blank baskets, high quality Rocket metal tamper, micro-fibre cloth, group cleaning brush and training / manual CD.

      Please note: These machines are not for commercial use. If you need a machine for a cafe, bar or restaurant, this is not suitable. You should look at the Boxer range.
