Legendary espresso machine manufacturer Rocket Espresso Milano is finally introducing their Dual Boiler machine. This machine features separate boilers, one for steam production and one for espresso. The boilers are controlled using a PID device. As one would expect from Rocket, the R58 has exceptional styling. The PID attaches to the side of the machine so you no longer have the awkward marriage of analog and digital, just the classic look that made Rocket famous.
The machine is made up entirely of AISI 304 steel which is nickel plated chromium, a very high grade of stainless. The insides are made of all copper and brass. The machine features the ability to be run as a pour over (tank mode) or plumbed in directly to your water supply and it uses a rotary vane pump. The boilers are insulated to prevent heat loss. This machine is truly remarkable.
E61 Group Head
The Rocket R58 features the extremely well known and widely used E61 group head. The E61 is known for its temperature stability, durability and ease of use.
Separate boilers for steam production and for espresso production. Not only can you perform both functions simultaneously, but you have full control over the temperature of each boiler.
Height adjustable feet
The R58 features Rocket's new rocket shaped adjustable feet.
Both boilers are made of copper and come with lead free brass endplates and additional external insulation for optimum thermal retention. Coffee boiler capacity is 0.58 liter, while steam/service boiler is 1.7 liter.
Powerful Heating Element
In order to warm up both boilers in no time, Rocket accessorized both boilers with 1400 W heating elements. Such a powerful element will generate almost infinite amount of steam, allowing you to produce perfectly frothed milk every time.
Quiet operation and robust performance. The Rocket can be run as a pour over machine using the included 2.5 litre water tank or it can be directly plumbed into your water main.
A truly exceptional and innovative PID (Proportional, Integral, Derivative) is mounted on a cord, externally from the machine's chassis. It allows you to adjust temperature of both boilers and turn the service boiler off.
The few initial seconds of brewing, when coffee is subjected to a low-pressure water, is called a pre-infusion. The R58 is accessorized with a mechanical pre-infusion system. This reflects into smooth coffee extraction with optimum aroma, body and crema.
No Burn Steam & Hot Water Wands
The machine is equipped with no burn steam and hot water wands that can be manipulated without worry about scolding your hands.
Level control cuts the power circuit if water is low, with a microprocessor that automatically controls the level of the water tank and boiler. A low water level warning will tell you when you need to refill. Please note: for proper operation, it is a must to use water with mineral content.
Stainless Steel Housing
The Rocket R58 is housed in a highly durable and very beautiful AISI 304 stainless steel case with a stainless steel cup frame surround.
The Rocket Espresso R58 machine comes with two portafilters, a PID, an aluminum tamper, a blind basket, a brush, a scoop, a cleaning cloth and a set of manuals.
