Overview

The Rocket Espresso R58 Cinquantotto showcases its classic Italian espresso roots blended with a few hidden high-tech touches to ensure the best coffee possible in your kitchen. The Cinquantotto is equal parts classic and modern, blending pro espresso essentials—like independent boilers, a 58mm E61 group, and a water line-ready rotary pump—with modern updates like a touchscreen PID and a low-profile shot timer. In particular, this updated PID controller offers a vibrant color display with easy access to boiler temperatures and auto-on programming, ensuring your machine is ready to make coffee whenever you are. Even the stainless steel case sees a contemporary twist, with updated legs and updated cup rail capping the iconic design. The Cinquantotto's stunning handmade design and premium components means it will be the centerpiece of your kitchen or bar for years to come.

    • Pros
      • Auto-On: The Cinquantotto is one of the few full-size Semi-automatics available with built-in power scheduling, a nice feature when your machine takes a while to heat up.
      • Silence is Bliss: The big, solid case and quiet rotary pump make the R58 exceptionally quiet on the counter.
    • Cons
      • PID Pod: While the side-mounted PID is removable, you leave behind a mounting point and easy access to machine functionality.
  • How Does it Compare?
    The New R58 Cinquantotto adds a mini shot timer, updated cup rail, legs, and a refreshed PID controller to Rocket Espresso's classic dual boiler platform. In particular, the new PID offers touchscreen control and new auto-on programmability—while remaining detachable to maintain the machine's vintage looks.
