Rocket Espresso History

Ready to revolutionize the espresso world after resigning from one of Italy's major espresso machine manufacturers in the early 1980's, Ennio Berti believed he could create a domestic espresso machine made entirely of commercial machine components. Teaming with Fredrich Berenbruch, the duo created Espresso Company Milano (ECM). In the late 1990's, ECM met New Zealanders Jeff Kennedy and Andrew Meo. Shortly thereafter, New Zealand was introduced to the E61 Rocket; a pioneering step in home espresso. In 2007, ECM decided to concentrate on commercial machines, and left Kennedy to focus on perfecting the household espresso machine. Rocket Espresso Milano was then formed. The current Rocket combines the history of Italian espresso engineering with passion provided by a couple of Kiwis.
