Overview

Who says you need counter space for serious coffee? Rocket's newest machine brings their outstanding handcrafted quality to the urban dweller with the aptly named Appartamento Espresso Machine. Featuring Rocket's tried-and-true heat exchange boiler and E61 group head pairing, you'll be pulling shots and pouring lattes in polished style. Classic features like mechanical pre-infusion, a heated group head and articulated steam and hot water wands make it a true prosumer device. Rocket's new pint-size compatriot adds a flash of bold design inspiration with circular side-panel inserts and engraved steam and hot water spouts.

Features and Functionality

  • Rocket Design - A flashy update to Rocket's (already showstopping) design, the Appartamento will draw stares from everyone who enters your kitchen.
  • Heat Exchange Boiler - A 1.8-liter heat exchange steam boiler allows you to brew espresso and froth milk at the same time.
  • Heated Group Head - A small flow of water off the boiler keeps your machine's group head warm for more consistent shot temps.
  • Small Footprint - The reduced dimensions of the Appartamento suit it for small counters and space-restricted kitchens.
  • Manual Control - Learn to brew all on your own with mechanical steam and brew controls.
  • Two Year Warranty - We're proud to offer two years of parts and labor support for every Rocket machine purchase.
Pros
  • Quite a Looker - The combo of mirrored steel and fun side-panel cutouts give the Appartamento a distinctly vintage appearance.
  • Heated Brew Head - Consistently hot shots in a machine this size? Yes, please.
  • So Simple - The classic Rocket Espresso knobs, levers and switches are easy to use and satisfyingly tactile.
  • Portafilters - The Appartamento comes with spouted portafilters for both single and double shot use cases.
Cons
  • Loud Pump - The vibratory pump is just as loud as on its larger brethren. We doubt apartment neighbors will appreciate the early morning wall shaking.
  • Plastic Rack - We wish the cup warmer rack was steel instead of plastic.
How Does it Compare?

The successor to the Cellini Classic, the Appartamento is thinner and flashier with its contrast side panels and engraved piping. Unlike the slightly pricier Premium Plus, the Appartamento lacks a PID.

Tips and Tricks

The Appartamento's boiler heats up the whole machine, especially after extended use. If you are used to bracing the side of the machine when removing your portafilter, the lower half of the machine is much cooler than the top.
