Product Description

The classics always endure and Rocket’s Cellini Classic is no exception. Featuring a timeless stainless steel case and powerful steam performance, this machine offers the same technology as Rocket's Premium Plus and Evoluzione models. Sometimes, the classics are all you need.

Features & Functionality of the Rocket Espresso Cellini Classic

  • Heat Retaining Boiler: Constructed of copper, the 1.8 liter boiler contains brass encaps, which assist in heat retention.
  • Shiny Case: Made of stainless-steel and featuring brushed side panels.
  • Professional E-61 Brew Head: Aiding in thermal stability, this brew group features a solid, lead-free brass end plate.
  • Vibratory Pump: Helps prevent blockage by eliminating back pressure from the boiler.
  • Cool Touch Wands: Steam and hot water wands are internally insulated to keep your fingers burn free.
  • Removable Cup Rack: Remove cup rack to reduce height.
  • Accessible Water Reservoir: Easily access the 98 ounce water reservoir at the top back of the machine.
  • Water Sensor: This sensor will let you know when it's time to refill.
  • Individually Constructed: Each machine is unique and hand made in Italy. Small warps in the case are normal and part of each machine's unique assembly process.
  • Thermal Stability - The copper-plated boiler assists with thermal stability and is great for energy saving.
  • Delicious Shots - This machine brews an excellent shot of espresso, if we do say so ourselves!
  • Cool Wand - Even with direct contact, the no burn steam wand keeps your hands cool as a cucumber.
  • Modest Drip Tray - Some might say the drip tray is on the smaller side, so you may find yourself emptying a little more often.
