Are you a latte lover with limited counter space? The Rocket Appartamento has you covered. The incredibly efficient heat exchanger design means you’ll have substantial steaming performance without having to give up all of your extra kitchen real estate. The cup rail can be easily removed, bringing the height to just 13.25″! With its large 1.8 liter steam boiler the Appartmento packs a punch and makes quick work of steaming large quantities of milk.
The Appartamento confirms Rocket’s outstanding reputation for high quality, hand-made espresso machines. The 304 stainless steel chassis, thoughtful internal layout, and hefty E61 group head mean you’ll enjoy fantastic lattes and espressos for years. The sturdy feet balance to the machine both visually and structurally. We love the stylized accents like the Rocket logo steam knobs and side panel inserts.
If you’re a fan of any size milk drink, looking to save space, and want the ability to entertain multiple coffee drinks with ease we highly recommend the Rocket Appartamento.

The reservoir is the water tank an espresso machine pulls water from to fill its boilers. Having a reservoir means a machine can be more portable and work in homes where plumbing isn't an option.
E61 Group Head
The E61 group head was designed in 1961; the fact that it's still around speaks to its reliability. This style of group head allows for mechanical pre-infusion while also exuding romantic espresso machine style.
These machines are built from the ground up with the home barista in mind. They span a wide range of needs but what they all have in common is a focus on creating a great user experience in a footprint that will fit on your counter, and look great there too.
Heat exchanger espresso machines continue to be the most popular in cafes around the world, because they offer the ability to steam milk and pull shots at the same time with mechanical simplicity. This design can run a bit hot when left idle, but with a short cooling flush they can pull consistent shots all day. Heat exchanger machines offer great steam power thanks to their large steam boilers, and adding a simple appliance timer eliminates waiting for long warmup.
Vibratory pumps are the most common design in compact espresso machines, because they’re durable, compact and economical. Although they’re a bit louder than rotary pumps, when adjusted to proper 9 bar brew pressure vibratory pumps offer comparable espresso quality.
