Overview

Adorable and well-adorned, the Rocket Espresso Appartamento semi-automatic espresso machine brings prosumer-quality construction in a compact format. An E61 group pulls piping hot shots while the heat exchange boiler offers side-by-side brewing and steaming. Other accoutrements include an insulated no-burn steam wand, a dedicated hot water wand and a polished stainless steel case with fun side-panel cutouts in a pearl white colorway.

Features and Functionality of the Rocket Espresso Appartamento Espresso Machine - Store Demo Unit

  • Heat Exchanger - A heat exchanger allows you to brew and steam at the same time.
  • Heated Group Head - A heated group head helps keep shots consistent between pulls.
  • Small Footprint - The reduced dimensions of the Appartamento suit it for small counters or space-restricted kitchens.
  • Manual Control - Learn to brew all on your own with mechanical pre-infusion, steaming and brew controls.
  • Rocket Design - A flashy update to Rocket's (already showstopping) design, the Appartamento will draw stares from everyone who enters your kitchen.
Pros
  • Quite a Looker - The combo of mirrored steel and the 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 uninsulated 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.
