Semi-Automatic Espresso Machines
Be your own barista! Semi-automatic espresso machines offer just the right amount of control over how your espresso is made at home. While they may look different, the basic functionality of a semi-automatic espresso machine includes a boiler, a portafilter and a switch or lever to perform the extraction. You’ll still grind and tamp your espresso (or insert an espresso pod), start the extraction and then steam or froth your milk as necessary. Semi-automatic espresso machines fall into two different types:
- Manual Control: On these semi-automatic espresso machines, the shot is initiated and you stop it once you decide the extraction is complete, usually in 20-30 seconds. This offers real-time control over the length of your extractions
- Programmable Doses: These semi-automatic espresso machines allow you to program the extraction to stop after a specific amount of time.
Built with the commercial-grade components and handmade craftsmanship you've come to expect from Rocket Espresso, the Rocket R58 Dual Boiler offers you double boiler functionality and dual PID temperature control - all in a plumbable, classically styled chrome and stainless-steel housing. Features of the new V2 model include a stronger chassis complete with nylon rails for a seamless drip tray fit, an upgraded magnetic drip tray closure, and an upgraded control board for optimized steaming and brewing.
