  1. 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.
  2. So it's finally arrived. Landed with Bella Barista from Italy yesterday, fedex overnight and with me by 9:30 this morning, perfect. First impressions: Heavy, very well built, and very shiny! I also asked BB to see if the Eureka short hopper fitted, which it did, so had one of those sent over as well. Only negative so far seems to be the slightly naff grounds tray, just a shiny disc really, doesn't seem to sit anywhere; they could learn from Mazzers very simple solution. I just threw 1kg of old beans through it (thanks again BB!) and then dialled it in with some Chatsworth blend from Rave and I'm definitely impressed. Very easy to dial in (about 6 shots) lovely adjustment mechanism, and compared to my previous Mazzer Mini Electronic type A, it seems a little more consistent; of course that may just be new toy syndrome. It's also bit quieter than the Mazzer, and definitely a tad quicker. Dialled in I'm getting 18g out in just under 14sec, the Mazzer would take 18-19sec. I'll report more once I've had a better play over the weekend, just need a new R60V now, enquiries already made with BB !! :-/
  3. There have been a few general comments about the Vesuvius being the only true pressure profiling machine. The logic is that the Vesuvius changes the actual pump speed to control pressure, where as the R60v controls pressure via a stepper valve further up the flow stream. As an R60 owner, I thought I'd ask Andrew Meo, owner of Rocket, for his thoughts; very kindly he responded as below. Whether you agree or disagree, I found his answer very interesting. Hi Scott Thank you for your email. I do not agree with these claims! There are different methods to achieve pressure profiling and in order to do so you must measure the pressure being supplied to the group of the machine. We do so using a pressure transducer which measures the pump pressure being supplied to the group. The pressure transducer then increases or decreases the pressure to the group to follow the program that has been pre set, via either a gear ump or a motorised solenoid. We use two methods; the rotary gear pump (that I believe is used in the Vesuvius) in our commercial R 8V machine, and more recently the motorised solenoid valve in the R60V. The two methods achieve the same results, with neither one or the other being preferred by us. Simply when the rotary gear pump spins faster, more pressure is delivered, as communicated by the pressure transducer. In the case of the motorised solenoid valve, the ‘normal’ rotary pump supplies pump pressure and the solenoid valve which opens and closes many times per second then supplies the correct pressure as measured by the pressure transducer. In both cases we are measuring the pressure via a pressure transducer and then adjusting that pressure. Both the gear pump and the motorised solenoid adjust pressure through the use of a pressure transducer, as pressure decreases / increases so does water flow. Please feel free to share my thoughts on this if you wish to Regards Andrew Meo
  4. More than a tad excited to get home and open this later!
  5. 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.
