The R60, an older brother of the very famous R58, is the newest dual boiler machine made by Italian Rocket Espresso Milano. It is truly unique thanks to 5 stage pressure profiling, PID temperature control, dual walled steamer and hot water arms, beautiful stainless steel body stainless steel boilers.
The R 60V features a unique pressure profile system that allows further enhancement in the cup with the ability to fine tune pump pressure over the course of the extraction.
The Rocket Espresso pressure profiling system uses a five step approach to allow the extraction to be split into five different time intervals, each allowing for a different pressure to be programmed, making it poss ible to both ramp up or ramp down pump pressure depending on the coffee type and flavours being chased.
The Rocket Espresso communication pod allows adjustments to be made through a remote controller or through the machine wifi system which will display real time temperatures, pressures and extraction times.
Dual boiler and PID controlled. Rotary pump with water reservoir or direct water connection.
E61 Group Head
The Rocket R60V features the extremely well known and widely used E61 group head. The E61 is known for its temperature stability, durability and ease of use. The group weighs 9 lbs.
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.
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.
Pressure Profile System
The R60V takes the coffee extraction to the new level. It allows you to split the extraction into five different time intervals, each allowing for a different pressure to be programmed, making it possible to both ramp up or ramp down pump pressure depending on the coffee type and flavors being chased.
The few initial seconds of brewing, when coffee is subjected to a low-pressure water, is called a pre-infusion. The R60 is accessorized with a mechanical pre-infusion system. This reflects into smooth coffee extraction with optimum aroma, body and crema.
No Burn & 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 R60 is housed in a highly durable and very beautiful AISI 304 stainless steel case with a stainless steel cup frame surround.
The Rocket Espresso R60 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.
