Comparison: R58 and BES920

We are back with another comparison! This time we are looking at the R58 and BES920. The Rocket R58 is really the gold standard when we compare dual boiler machines.R58 and BES920

Last time we did a comparison to the R58 we took a look at the Oracle, which has a ton of extra features--causing it to sit in an espresso machine class of its own. So we decided to take another look at the R58 and compare it to something a little closer in  design.

The R58 and BES920 are both excellent machines, promising a great shot of espresso. But certain features and functions will be more appreciated by different home baristas.

The R58 is a classic espresso machine. It features a rotary pump which will create the ideal pressure and do so very quietly. It features a removable PID, so you can make the adjustments you want, but still have the clean looking machine that Rocket strives to design. The R58 also has the option to be a plumbed in machine if that tickles your fancy.  Oh and did we mention the E-61 brew head?

R58 and BES920The Breville BES920 features a lot of the "creature comforts" that the R58 doesn't sport. Automatic on and off functions being the big one. The BES920 has a built in PID system, so you have the control to pull some great shots. The Breville has a stainless steel boiler while the Rocket is a brass and copper build.
