      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.

      Who is it suited to?

      The Cinquantotto is geared towards people wanting to drink amazing quality coffee in the home or office, but with precision control over temperature during the brewing process. If you are interested in playing around with the types of coffee you use (roasts styles or origins), or the way you brew it (varying temperature), then the Cinquantotto if the machine for you.

      It's not uncommon for people to upgrade from HX machines too dual boilers once they become more into the quality or precision control of their coffee. That said, more people are going straight for the R58 as their first machine with the view of just going for the best first time around, with the view of avoiding future upgrades.

      What is the build quality like?

      The Cinquantotto is built like a tank, but with the look and feel of a Mercedes. It weighs around 30KG, so it's reassuringly heavy. The unit is housed around a soild 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.

      What's so good about it?

      The Rocket Cinquantotto has separate insulated brass boilers for both brewing and steam. These enable simultaneous brewing of espresso and steaming of milk with ultimate temperature control and stability. The fully programmable PID (electronic temperature control), uses sensors inside the boilers to deliver precise temperatures, ensuring stability to within 1°C. This feature allows for precise adjustments to suit specific types of coffee, so total variable control to suit your needs and tastes.

      It contains a commercial grade rotary pump, separate boiler and pump pressure gauges, a cool touch technology (anti-burn) stainless steel steam wand, separate hot water tap, a large stainless steel drip tray and a large cup warmer.

      The R58 may be classed as a domestic machine, but it is considerably powerful, capable of producing excellent espresso and perfect micro-foam for flat whites, lattes and cappuccinos at a level that is normally only seen in commercial equipment.

      What about water connections?

      The R58 runs from its internal reservoir by default, but comes with a full kit to connect to mains water supply if preferred. It features microprocessor controlled, automatic level controls on the boiler and fresh water reservoir. This means water is automatically drawn from the reservoir into the boiler, plus it protects the boiler from burn out should the supply of water run out.

      What has changed since the last version?

      • Shot counter built into the front of the machine.

      • External controller now touch screen.

      • External controller now USB instead of a parallel port.

      • On/Off scheduling feature
