Rocket Espresso Appartamento


- +


The Appartamento is a heat exchange espresso machine from Rocket Espresso designed with the power of high-end equipment in stylized, compact housing. Rocket Espresso’s unique aesthetic shows in the circular side panel cut-outs and large, gear-like steam & hot water knobs. At the core of the machine are a 1.8 liter copper boiler and 1200 watt heating element that work in concert with the E61 group for temperature stability. The heat exchange boiler allows the Appartamento to brew and steam simultaneously. Coming in at a height of just over 14 inches and a width of just under 11 inches, the Appartamento will fit easily where space is a commodity, without compromising on power.

Dimensions: 16.7” D x 10.8” W x 14.2” H

Weight: 44 lbs


Commercial E-61 Brew-Group

The Rocket Espresso Appartamento has a professional quality, nine-pound E-61 brew-group made of chrome plated brass to ensure proper heat stability. Espresso extraction is aided by a thorough pre-infusion process to preserve coffee flavor and aroma. Hot water is constantly circulated between the boiler and brew-group to ensure proper brewing temperature. The machine comes with a commercial portafilter as well as single and double-shot filter baskets.


The Rocket Espresso Appartamento has a dual pre-infusion system, consisting of a mechanical pre-infusion system with progressively working piston and a static pre-infusion chamber, resulting in flavorful, aromatic, and crema-rich extractions.

Heavy-Duty Boiler

At the heart of the Appartamento is its 1.8 liter copper boiler, equipped with a 1200 watt heating element. The copper design shows improved heat retention and temperature stability, resulting in greater energy efficiency.

Commercial Portafilter

The commercial-grade chromed portafilter comes with single and double shot filters and baskets for your convenience.

Electronic Controls

The boiler and reservoir water levels are monitored by sensors that will alert the user if the machine needs to be refilled, and shut it off if ignored. This feature helps to prevent a dry-boil and prolong the life of the machine.

Removable Cup Warmer

The copper boiler also heats the removable cup warmer located on top of the machine. Heat is released through holes in the top of the machine, ensuring that your cups are heated.

Frothing and Hot Water

No-Burn Stainless Steel Steam Wand

Rocket Espresso’s patented cool-touch technology ensures that the steam wand is safe to use (only the nozzle gets hot). The heavy-duty wand has a two-hole tip and is engaged with a large ergonomic control knob at the top of the wand. Below the steam wand is the steam pressure gauge – the machine is at steaming pressure when the gauge measures around 1 bar. Use the steam knob to foam and steam milk, soy milk, or half and half for a cappuccino, latte, café breve, or latte macchiato.

Stainless Steel Hot Water Nozzle

The hot water nozzle is located to the right of the brew group and features another large ergonomic control knob like the steam wand. You can dispense hot water for tea, a café Americano, instant soup or hot chocolate, drink mixes, or hot cider.

Cleaning, Maintenance, and Other

Water Sensor & Reservoir

The Rocket Espresso Appartamento comes equipped with an electronic microprocessor controlled automatic low-water-level sensor that will automatically shut off the machine to prevent a dry boiler. A warning system will also alert you when the water reservoir needs to be replenished. The water reservoir has a generous 2.5 liter capacity and is removable for easy cleaning and refilling. Remove the cup tray from the top of the machine, and remove the water reservoir using the handles. Rinse with non-abrasive detergent, and refill at the tap. A water softener can be used to increase the length of time between descaling cycles.

Regular Upkeep

Use a damp cloth to keep your brew group head free of excess grounds, and use a brush to clean the shower screen and group gasket on your brew group. The portafilters’ metal filter-basket and filter handle can be cleaned in warm water and non-abrasive detergent to remove excess grounds and coffee oils. When the drip tray fills, empty it and clean the drip tray and stainless steel drip tray grid with a damp cloth. The stainless steel body of the machine can also be wiped down with a damp cloth to keep it looking its best.
