The Rocket Giotto Evoluzione R is a top-of-the-line coffee machine designed and manufactured in Milan, Italy. It is equipped with heat exchange, PID control and a rotary pump, making it a powerful and efficient machine. The rotary pump is quiet, and the machine can be connected to either an internal water tank or a mains water supply with the flick of a switch. The machine also features two-piece adjustable feet for easy height adjustments and a refined body design that makes it an elegant addition to any coffee lover’s home. The Rocket Espresso machine is known for its superior technology and performance, and this model is no exception.
Rocket Espresso has incorporated advanced technology from their commercial machines into the Giotto Evoluzione R, making it a powerful and high-performing machine. It features PID temperature control, insulated boilers and 9mm boiler end plates for improved stability and temperature control. Additionally, the rotary pump ensures quiet and durable pump performance, and the user can choose to either draw water from the internal reservoir or connect the machine directly to the water supply.
The Rocket Giotto is a well-known and respected home espresso machine that has been on the market since the 1990s. Ennio Berti’s founder believed that the world was ready for a coffee revolution and has put in much effort to make the Giotto and the Rocket Espresso brand what it is today. The engineers work backwards from the end goal of creating the perfect espresso and thus designing the ultimate espresso machine. The machine is purpose-built using the best traditional craftsmanship and technical knowledge to provide a commercial-grade experience at home. Despite its long history, the machine is constantly refined and redesigned to improve its performance.
The 1.8-litre boiler of the machine is constructed with a lead-free brass end plate that improves thermal retention and then coated with nickel to protect against copper oxidation. The thermo siphon system layout is redesigned to ensure balance in the machine, allowing for perfect milk texturing and optimal extraction temperature for the best espresso taste and flavour. The machine also has cool-touch steam and hot water wands. Unlike companies that use cheaper parts and cut corners to reduce costs, Ennio’s machine is built with high-quality, commercial-grade components and manufacturing processes.
Rocket Giotto machines are visually appealing and thoughtfully designed to have modern inner workings while maintaining a traditional and simple exterior. The temperature control is optimised through a PID controller that uses four different signal parameters to ensure stability and the best results in the cup.
The machine has an adjustable temperature display that lets the user choose specific brewing temperatures for different coffee and roasts. The company has deliberately kept flashy digital displays out of sight to keep the focus on the espresso-making process and to create a more immersive experience for the barista. They have accomplished this by concealing the digital display behind the drip tray, which allows the barista to focus fully on the espresso extraction process without being distracted by bright lights.
