  1. Hi. Sorry if this has been asked before, i did try a search. Does anyone know of a short hopper option for the Rocket Faust, i'm expecting delivery any day but i already know it's around 10mm too high for where i need it to fit! Thanks
  2. This is my first "proper" setup after years with a Rancilio Silvia and Mazzer Mini. The Compak has red speed burrs and after 6 months is now getting pretty consistent on the dosing. Now I've assembled all of these lovely toys and have my workflow sorted it is feeling pretty dialled in.
  3. So just received my new Rocket today and curious as to why the portafilter is not locking into the group head to be at 90 degrees from the body as per the manual. Iv'e tried pulling it in harder but any more force and the machine is moving. It's basically sitting at 7-8 o'clock instead of 6 and so the spouts are not straight when extracting. Has this come out the factory wrong or is there something I'm missing? To note this is for all porta filters, the single/double and the bottomless I purchased.
  4. Hello! I was unable to find any major details about Rocket R9 One build, in particular regarding the material used for the saturated group: chromed brass? stainless steel? Someone can enlighten me? Many thanks in advance
  5. Hi All, Got a friend looking at an R58. But at least three different sites list a different height for the machine. Also confusing is rockets suggestion that current generation has height adjustable feet, and that in certain heights, it can no longer be plumbed. Do any of you have the exact height (with, or without the adjusted feet, and without cup rail)
  6. Hi all, forgive me if this has been asked before - I had a quick search but couldn't see anything similar I have a new Rocket R58, a pretty substantial machine both in dimensions and in weight (around 30kg), which sits on a worktop in the kitchen with wall units above it. After adjusting the feet, I have around 15cm of clearance above the machine. The machine is not plumbed in; I use the water reservoir and this is the root of the problem I have. To check the water level I have to move the machine quite a bit to be able to see into the reservoir (first world problems, eh!) - has an
  7. For no reason what so ever what would be next branch up on the prosumer tree, I have had levers before, not quite on the L1 mood, what else is there that's worth the turn over presuming I am already married to all the grinder I will ever need?
  8. I guess originally it was my wife who requested the Dualit Expressivo she was given as a Christmas or birthday present, actually it sato in the box unused for eons until I bothered to unwrap and set it up. Now shortly after that she decided this was to much trouble to use unless I was making it and for her sins bought a Nesspresso and frother, we used these for a while until one day we ran out of pods.... the only thing we had was a packet of coffee!!!!! So the Expressivo was used and since then the Nesspresso has since sat idle. Now for me I have been wanting to upgrade for a w
  9. Any experiences on this machine? For small coffee shop, alternatives are sanremo zoe and la spaz s5... Cheers!
  10. Announced at Host Milan 2017 - "The world’s first truly portable espresso machine" https://player.vimeo.com/video/239025786 http://rocket-espresso.com/assets/re_portavia_dle_web.pdf
  11. I have a Rocket R58 and for the past couple months I have been experiencing the following problem: When turning the machine on after about 15 minutes the steam pressure continues to rise past the 1-1.5bar green zone on the dial to around 2.25bar, this is the point where the OPV releases, the OPV activates and releases the excess pressure, initially this was intermittant but now it occours every time the machine is turned on (I have now turned off the steam/service boiler). The heater doesn't shut off and the water in the boiler is continued to heat, so my initial thoughts were that its a
  12. So the Oracle experience didn't last long/go well as it seems it was faulty, so for a few reasons I have chosen to take a refund and begin searching for a manual machine. I have backed the Niche Zero so my plan is to research and source a good second hand machine to pair with that when it is released. I have plenty of time but want to make sure I do my research and don't buy the wrong thing. So far I've only looked at Rocket machines (online not in person) and really like the R58. A dual boiler would be my preference and they are within budget for a well looked after second hand one.
  13. Hi all We're selling our near new / perfect condition Rocket machine (2 group) plus grinders (and add-ons such as jugs, thermometers etc). looking for £4,500 for a quick sale This machine was hand-made for us in Milan and is as good as new (less than a year old). We’re only selling it because we’re selling our cafe and the new owners have the exact same machine as us (and like us, are coffee geeks) – we feel that this speaks volumes about the quality of the Rocket. If you buy before 15th September then you are totally welcome to see it in action - we're based in Castle Cary, So
  14. Hi Guys Selling my beloved Rocket R58v2 with Mazzer Superjolly Electronic, trying to sell as combo but willing to split. Purchased from Machina Coffee 4 years ago. Machine is in Excellent condition, always used protective slip mat on top of cup warmer and drip tray (See pics). Also used a take away container to limit drip tray removal for back flushing and every day use. Always back flushed with water and regularly cleaned with puly caff and puly milk. It was plumbed in for 3 years with bwt. NO BOX though, had to make a speedy getaway from my ex partner, left everything apart from co
  15. Hi Everyone, I have a 2 1/2 year old Rocket Espresso Appartamento for sale in Copper. It's in good condition but could probably do with a service. I've loved using this machine it has been a dream, consistent shots and the steam wand is great for microfoam. I would like £600 for it or close to, viewings welcome. Collection only from Bishop's Stortford. Any questions please ask! Will upload photos shortly.
  16. Hello, Selling this on behalf of someone who no longer has a use for it after opening their cafe. It was bought from Machina in May 2018, so roughly 18-20months old. Warranty was only 1 year so has expired. Machine is in very good condition having had very little use in a home environment. Collection only from Edinburgh. Images to follow ASAP. Price: £700 ono.
  17. Hi all, My Rocket Appartamento is coming up to 2 years old now and I've just noticed something that's concerning me a bit. The brew temperature of the water appears to be lower than I'd expect. (espresso shots). I don't have any form of thermometer installed on the machine to give an exact reading but I know it's not as hot as normal because: 1. When drinking my shot it doesn't seem to be as hot 2. When flushing there doesn't seem to be the same level of steam or bubbling from the group head as before I've tried giving more warm-up time so this morning I left it o
  18. Aluminum portfilter handle, think it better suits the machine. Does get hot if machine is left on for a long time, usually not an issue. Have just made a new one which has a larger diameter which goes a bit better, will upload a pic when its on.
  19. Well had my Rocket machine for just over a year now making 5 -6 cups a day more at weekends It's never let me down Cannot fault it really brilliant machine:good:
  20. Hi all, Relatively new to the forum and yet to own a coffee setup. I'm after a bit of advice about purchasing my first grinder and machine! Exciting!! I'm currently using an aeropress which is good but I'm more of an espresso kinda guy. I drink 2-3 coffees a day, maybe more if I can make a decent cup! I'm limited on space so I think an Appartamento would be suitable machine for the space I have, are there any other machines anyone can think of that would fit this criteria? I'd prefer a HX machine to a single boiler, are there any DB that would be suitable? I have a b
  21. My OCD Distributor arrived in the post on Friday, together with a new Torr 58.55 tamper. I'm amazed at the difference they make, the distributor particularly, very simple but clever piece of kit. My fausto grinder clumps a bit, light fluffy clumps, but still clumps, the OCD just deals with it, the Torr fits perfectly and finishes the job off. Just ordered a ridgeless VST to replace my ridged, apart from that, happy as a pig in muck with my setup now.
  22. [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.
  23. Hi all, just wondering if any of you have been fortunate enough to have got your hands on one of the new Rocket Fausto grinders ? I see BB are selling them but they are currently out of stock. Did they previously have some stock and someone on here got one of these ? If so would be very interested to get your thoughts and opinions on this grinder as I feel a bout of upgraditus coming on and if this performs as well as it looks it could replace the Zenith at the top of my current list of potential new grinders !
  24. Is it just me who finds cleaning your machine enjoyable? Just spent a great hour stripping down my grinder, good clean, new beans dialed in, the back flushing my machine, cam lube, good wipe down and polish, most enjoyable! All ready to go
  25. Morning all, I'm slowly diagnosing my sour shot issue and can fairly confidently point my finger at brew temperature. I'm using Clifton Coffee EQ (http://www.cliftoncoffee.co.uk/shop/eq-seasonal-espresso-blend-v-9/) which is a fairly light roast but it's grinding a dream, fairly dry fluffy grinds and super easy and nice steady even extraction using a naked portafilter. I've been using 18g grounds (I have a Ceado E7 grinder) and experimented from 1:1.5 to 1:2.5 brew ratios in around 30 seconds extraction and the shots are still coming out different styles of sour i.e. strong and sour to th
