Overview

Heritage design meets modern accouterments with the Rocket Espresso Giotto Timer Type V. A classic E61 design in a stainless steel case belies the technology packed inside, offering the best of both classic design notions and usability. Features like a built-in shot timer, hidden PID controller, and group flow restrictors elevate the Giotto Timer's functionality beyond standard espresso machines—all without sacrificing the machine's style. Simultaneous brewing and steaming, efficient heat management, and high-powered steaming combine to make a machine as easy to use as it is to look at.

Features and Functionality

  • Built by Hand - The Giotto Timer Type V is designed and built by hand in Milan, Italy.
  • Shot Timer - A mini shot timer adds extra functionality without affecting the classic face of the machine.
  • PID Controller - Placed behind the drip tray, this PID controller replaces the pressurestat of other machine and offers more stable temperatures in the steam boiler.
  • Steel Case - The Giotto's bold, angular case, removable cup rail, drip tray and feet are all a rust-resistant stainless steel.
  • Heat-exchange Boiler - A 1.8-liter steam boiler with a cold water tube running through it pulls water fresh from the reservoir. Steam pressure is calibrated at the factory to passively heat water to ideal brew temp.
  • Solenoid Valve - As big a part of the E61 group as any, the exposed tube above the drip tray syphons off back pressure for cleaner pucks and easy backflushing.
Pros
  • Shot Timer - A minute shot timer mounted low on the case adds extra usability without dominating the face of the machine.
  • Easy Brewing - Rocket's minorly-modified E61 design makes for soft, repeatable shots—without sacrificing on taste.
  • Dramatic - The Giotto's sloping side panels add a dash of Italian flair to the machine's looks.
Cons
  • Shiny and Chrome - Keep a microfiber cloth handy to keep your machine looking bright and clean.
