What is it?

The Rocket Appartamento is a heat exchanger espresso machine with an E61 group head and a vibratory pump that runs on an internal reservoir.

Who is it for?

The home barista who has a compact but stylish kitchen and needs a machine that can produce consistently delicious shots and provide the steam power for multiple lattes. A machine that's simple, small, yet powerful, and leaves enough money for a great grinder.

Why do we carry it?

The Rocket Appartamento packs an unreasonable amount of power into a wonderfully small package, making it an easy pick for those that need a top notch machine but are short on space. If you want to serve a dinner party of milk drinks the Appartamento will have you covered, and it certainly won't let you down when you want to get nerdy and try different recipes. As a heat exchanger, you may not be able to adjust temperature, but it consistently dispenses 200°F water, meaning you can trust it to continuously produce great results.
