  1. hi, i need some help from Giotto or Cellini PID owners. i came along this info on a Rocket manual for HX which i find very interesting, BUT it lacks the pressure gauge information. can someone make the proper observations (giving the HX ~15 minutes to stabilize after changing temperature)? thank you
  2. Hi, I'm from Argentina and I had a friend traveling to Europe, where he was kind enough to bring me a Rocket Evoluzione Giotto R, he bought it from the official Rocket distributor at the country he was visiting. He was back home 2 days ago and I Installed and setup my machine as per the users manual instructions. Was able to brew a couple shots while dialing my grinder, and a continuous hissing sound started to bother me, it was coming from the cup warmer. Turned off the machine and went online to read about this issue, found it most likely was the pressure relief valve. Removed the
  3. Possibly a good deal for someone? only 10 months old http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rocket-Espresso-GIOTTO-EVOLUZIONE-Coffee-Machine-/322101615742?hash=item4afec09c7e:g:o-gAAOSw8vZXL0qY

  5. [video=youtube_share;hpPT8klhEc4] I've just started playing with a VST basket, wow, huge difference. Much finer grind required for a 2:1 brew ratio at around 27sec. Do you guys include or exclude pre-infusion time from your pull time? I'm finding the shot a little bitter when excluding it, but in reality that equates to a 33sec ish shot time, which feels bit slow.
  6. I'm selling my beloved Giotto Evoluzione V2, bought new from Bella Barista May 2014. Usual light scratches on the drip tray, otherwise unmarked, also has the optional metal cup holder surround. Comes with all accessories originally supplied. Currently plumbed in with a water filter system. Not much else I can say about it really, wonderful machine, will be sadly missed, only going due to the imminent arrival of an R60. Looking for around £950 ish I'm in West London, happy to demo for anyone collecting.
  7. Hi coffee Friends. I have my hands on an old ECM Giotto that won't refill the boiler. I've emptied the boiler and now I need the machine to fill it back up, but when I turn on the machine nothing happens. The LED lights up and indicates that the machine has been turned on but the pump doesn't do anything. I've tried many things: 1: unplugging the cable from the water level probe - didn't have any effect 2: changing the gicar (black control box) to a new one - didn't have any effect 3: changing the vibration pump to a new one - didn't have any effect Does anybody have any ide
  8. Bought new from Bella Barista in 2013, my beloved (and very well cared for) Rocket Giotto Plus v2 espresso machine is up for sale. http://www.rocket-espresso.com/downloads/Plus_V2_A5_brochure_WEB.pdf It is in very good condition (some marks as you would expect, in particular the silver paint around the on/off switch is fading off, but nothing at all untoward). I am selling because I have just bought a new volumetric machine for a change. As well as the standard kit that it came with, I am including the following upgrades: metal cup rail, IMS shower screen, set of Rocket stea
  9. Firstly, is a Giotto and a Cellini the same just different looks? If and only if I was going to buy one should I buy a; Rocket Giotto Evo V2 Rocket Cellini Evo V2 Rocket Giotto V3 - PID Rocket Cellini V3 - PID it seems like Vibe, PID,Tank fed v Rotary, tank and plumb in
  10. I think this is going to be my next purchase. I have a Gaggia Classic, which i've had for a couple of years now (since being a member of this board). I'm thinking that the Evo would be a good upgrade which I dont think I'd need to change again for a long time. I like americanos with a drop of single cream, 2-3 cups per day. Espressos are rare now. People from bella-barista have given me some good advice as I thought I needed a twin tank, but a HX is more my cup of tea/coffee.
  11. I have just bought a Giotto over the weekend on the forum which I cannot wait to get home and try, however I now relise that my current Nemox Lux grinder might not be upto scratch to get the best out of the machine. I am not looking to spend a fortune on another grinder but I noticed on Ebay a rebadged Macap md5 grinder going for sale which looks brand new, it's a bit more than i wanted to spend at the moment but is this going to be a good match for the Giotto or should I be looking at other grinders?

  12. Reduced to £800. Bought new from Bella Barista in 2013, my beloved (and very well cared for) Rocket Giotto Plus v2 espresso machine is up for sale. http://www.rocket-espresso.com/downl...ochure_WEB.pdf It is in very good condition (some marks as you would expect, in particular the silver paint around the on/off light is fading off, but nothing at all untoward). As well as the standard kit that it came with, I am including the following upgrades: metal cup rail, IMS shower screen, set of Rocket steam wand tips, naked portafilter, nice (heavy) branded Rocket tamper.
  13. ...when switching on from cold for it to heat up and just as it's reaching what you can hear is boiling point, vent off steam for a second or two through the top of the machine (looks like it's coming out by the cup warmer) ? Happens once, sometimes twice but it's only when switched on from cold. Also, gentle dripping from the small vent on the front panel until all up to temp. All seems fine and machine operates as I would have expected it to once up to temp and pulling shots. Just want to know that that is normal behaviour to put my mind at rest. Cheers
  14. More of a simple Modette really but this has remedied a minor niggle that I had with my Rocket Giotto. I'm talking steam valve as I steam milk for pretty much every drink but it would also be valid for the hot water valve for anybody using it regularly. When the standard valve is fully closed, the face of the threaded brass insert, within the knob, contacts a face of the chromed valve body. This contact causes the valve to 'stick' by offering resistance when you try to turn the valve open. So I found myself having to apply more force than expected and have the knob, initially, jum
  15. I don't (or at least didn't) know much about espresso machines, but have been happily using a Gaggia classic for about 5 years until I saw a Rocket Giotto and loved how it looked. But I couldn't justify the cost for a cappuccino or two a day just because it looked nice. A day later, I spotted a faulty ECM Giotto on eBay, all I knew was that it tripped the power when you turn it on. 5 minutes of research told me it was a predecessor to the Rocket Giotto, and so, knowing nothing about how a coffee machine works, I snapped it up for £150 and crossed my fingers that it would be an easy fix instead
  16. Hi All, I'm new to the forum and about to upgrade from a 10 year old Gaggia Classic to a Rocket Giotto (ideally before Christmas). Does anyone know if there is a difference between the Rocket Giotto Evoluzione V2 and Rapha Rocket Giotto? It seems the should be the same but I can't understand why the Rapha only has one pressure gauge? Any help much appreciated! Cheers Neil
  17. As alluded to in the Wiggo's Giotto thread, Sir Chris Hoy is also a fan of Rocket and a recent tweet of his setup showed a healthy selection of beans from Has Bean
  18. I'm sure we have a few cycling fans on the forum Have you seen Wiggo's custom Giotto? click for more images
  19. Well after carefull deliberation i decided to........................Wait and save up a bit more increase the budget a bit and get a Londinum 1 that was until i showed the wife the pics and video i seem to recall the words ''I'm not having that in my bL***y house'' ringing around my ears the lever does not appear to fit with the ''Retro cool and expensive'' apperance of the house so i am told anyway so thats that idea well and truly out of the window, however she loves the look of the Rocket and the similar looking ECM and others. So since im saving up a bit more i fancy either the The Ro
  20. Having a steep learning curve here with the Rocket Giotto / Eureka Mignon, and need some advice before I completely tear my hair out Firstly, I'm a bit confused about the basket sizes that came with the Giotto. I have: 1 single spout PF 1 double spout PF 1 Rocket naked portafilter (purchased separately) Now, I assumed that the single spout basket being the smaller of the two was a single dose. However, today when weighing 8gms of coffee, it evidently isn't as it's so little in the basket you can't even tamp it. So, I upped the dose to around 15gms which still doesn't c
  21. Hello, I've finally manage to join after reading many many threads on here. I bought my classic about a year ago after having a Cubika for 2 years before that. I am now looking to upgrade after playing with smart San remo machines on a recent barista course. I'm looking to get something above the Siliva level but my limitation is that it must be tank fed rather than plumbed in. I'll keep reading to gather ideas but wanted to ask for advice.
  22. Hi all, As per title, I have a Giotto, plumbed in to a 3M filter. Been that way for a number of years, filter's changed every couple of years but the machine has not been descaled in that time. It has been regularly cleaned with Cafiza and lubed with Molycote. I've checked the mushroom and inside the group. Pictures attached. Is this bad, do you think it needs a descale ? Reason I ask is that the machine temp has been a little unstable recently and recovery times feel slower. Maybe just psycological, knowing the filter was due a change. Also, with this type of filter, how often
