Looking for a little flexibility in your life? Rocket Espresso Giotto Evoluzione model has just that with its easily convertible water source functionality. Set the Giotto Evoluzione up to use the internal water reservoir or plumb it directly into a water source. Rounding out this upgraded semi-automatic machine's features: a quieter rotary pump, dual gauges for both boiler and brew head pressure readings, the renowned E-61 brew group and an included high-quality metal tamper.
Features & Functionality of the Rocket Espresso Giotto Evoluzione
Insulated Boiler: Increases heat retention and thermal stability resulting in greater energy efficiency.
Copper Boiler: A 1.8 liter copper boiler retains the thick lead-free brass and plates and is now wrapped in a special insulating blanket. This reflects up to a 30 percent increase in thermal stability and energy savings of up to 22 percent.
Upgraded Tamper: These machines now include a metal tamper and are now up to par with the style and quality of the Rocket machine.
Stainless Steel Case: Finely crafted polished AISI 304 stainless-steel housing is beautiful and highly durable.
Professional-Class E-61 Brew Head: The legendary E-61 brew group features a solid, lead-free brass end plate that aids in thermal stability and heat retention.
Dual Pre-Infusion System: Mechanical pre-infusion system has a progressively working piston and static pre-infusion chamber, resulting in smooth coffee extraction and superior aroma, body and crema.
Rotary Pump: Pump features a special device to eliminate backpressure from the boiler, preventing blocks.
Stainless Steel Nozzles: Steam wand with a two-hole tip and hot water wand are internally insulated so you won't burn yourself on them after use.
Removable Cup Rack: You can pull off the cup rack to reduce the espresso machine's height.
Large, Easy-Access Water Reservoir: Easily access the 98-ounce water reservoir via the separate lid — you won't have to take all the cups off the top of your espresso machine in order to refill it.
Low Water Sensor: Level control cuts the power circuit if water is low, with a microprocessor that automatically controls the level of the boiler and water reservoir. A low water level warning will let you know when you need to refill.
Generously Dimensioned: 20 percent higher volume (compared to other machines on the market) is paired with optimum thermosyphon system to quickly heat up and provide superior extraction.
Plumbable - We love the flexibility of being able to plumb this model or simply use it as a tank model. This is a great option for those who want to start with a tank version and then later plumb it in.
Ideal Shots - The Giotto pulls an excellent shot of espresso.
No Burn Wands - Internally insulated steam wand and water dispenser keep the casing cool so you won't burn your hands.
Water Dispenser Design - When you turn the water dispenser inwards, it obstructs the brew lever, which is only a minor annoyance.
