Overview

The Rocket Espresso Giotto Timer Evoluzione R brings modernized Italian styling to your kitchen counter. With roots tied to classic E61 machines recognizable the world-over, the Giotto timer sneaks in cutting-edge espresso tech—including PID heat management, energy-efficient boiler insulation, and a minimalist shot timer—into its shining steel case. An excellent balance of user-friendly operation and top-class espresso, the Giotto cools down the overhot E61 group with a flow restrictor that requires less flushing and pairs it with a 1.8-liter insulated heat-exchange boiler that lets you brew and steam at the same time. Driven by a commercial-class rotary pump, the Evoluzione series can be run directly from your kitchen water line, letting you skip the refills and stick with the espresso. The Giotto Timer is more than its components; careful design choices give you all the tools you need for excellent espresso without sacrificing the luxurious look of your machine.

Features and Functionality

  • Shot Timer - Built into the face of the machine, this low-profile screen shows your shot time automatically.
  • Brew and Steam - A classic heat-exchanger design lets you pull a shot while steaming milk.
  • Convertible - A quiet rotary pump makes it easy to plumb your machine into your kitchen water line.
  • PID Efficiency - Electronic heat management offers a tighter temperature band and easy adjustments on-the-fly.
  • Power-saving Mode - Your Giotto will shut off its heating element after 90 minutes of inactivity to save lower power consumption.
  • Adjustable Height - The Giotto offers removable foot extensions and cup rails, letting you drop the total height up to 2 inches.
  • Insulated Boiler - Boiler insulation aids with temperature stability and energy saving.
Pros
  • Hidden Modernity - Rocket Espresso does an excellent job of giving you technology without requiring you to look at chunky plastics or bright LEDs. The new shot timer is small and unobtrusive, while the PID controller is hidden behind the drip tray—only use it when you need it.
  • Excellent Espresso - You'd expect a machine at this price to make some good coffee, but its hard to overstate how well its flow restrictor/PID combo works to make shots more consistent.
  • Room to Grow - Simple to use right out of the box, the Evoluzione Timer offers easy access to temp management and optional plumbing for more advanced home baristas.
Cons
  • Cleaning Required - A fingerprint-craving steel case, ridged drip tray, and spluttery hot water wand require you to keep up on cleaning to keep your Giotto Timer looking good.
How Does it Compare? The Evoluzione line of machines offers optional plumbing, while Type V is reservoir-only.
