What is the Rocket Porta Via?
Rocket are the market leader for premium grade domestic espresso machines. The Porta Via (Dual Boiler) is Rocket’s first ever portable machine, geared for use in looking for artisan quality coffee - where ever you are. It's a dual boiler with tank fill only, all neatly housed in a flight case that's about as slick a package as you are ever likely to see.
Like all other domestic Rocket units, it boasts a fully stainless steel body, chrome finish and an E61 group head. 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.
Who is it suited too?
The Porta Via is really geared towards people wanting to drink great coffee in the on the move that just can't bear drinking rubbish coffee in places where they have missed the world coffee memo. Travel by car lots? Go on loads of camping trips? Visit the in-laws and are always subjected to god awful coffee? This is the fix.
What is the build quality like?
The Porta Via is like no other espresso machine you have ever come across. It weighs around 30KG (Including the case), so it's reassuringly heavy. The unit is housed around a sold 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: Bottomless portafilter, high quality Rocket metal tamper, 2 x Rocket Flat White Cups, Rocket 50cl Milk Jug.
