Perfect your palazzo with the Rocket Espresso Giotto Type V Espresso Machine! This scaled-down centerpiece takes all its design cues from classic Italian machines—sloping lines, hand-polished steel and an exposed E61 group—while its internals are tuned for the requirements of home espresso. A heat-exchange boiler offers side-by-side brewing and steaming, with the capacity for multiple drinks at a time. An integrated PID adds easy access to temperature control for those looking to coax the most out of their favorite roasts. And, its internals are chock-full of professional quality components designed to last for years of use.

Features and Functionality

  • Built by Hand - The Giotto Type V is designed and built by hand in Milan, Italy.
  • Steel Case - The Giotto's bold, angular case, removable cup rail, drip tray and feet are all a rust-resistant stainless steel.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Two Year Warranty - We're proud to offer two years of parts and labor support for every Rocket machine purchase.
  • All the Right Angles - The tapered shape of the Giotto's case strikes a bold look in a modern kitchen.
  • PID controller - A nice touch for a bit of added temperature stability.
  • Adjustable - With two-stage adjustable feet and a removable steel cup rail, the Giotto can squeeze under or step over almost any kitchen cabinet or counter.
  • Hot Water Wand - Ultra-hot steam shot straight from the boiler makes for messy cleanup.
  • Microfiber Mandatory - The polished steel may be gorgeous, but your fingerprints all over it sure aren't.
How Does it Compare? The successor to the Giotto Premium Plus with PID, the Type V adds a stainless steel rail stock and adjustable feet for more kitchen configurations.
Tips and Tricks Keep in mind that this is a heat-exchange machine! any adjustment you make to the steam boiler will shift your brew temperature as well.
