Rocket Espresso is known for producing some of the best commercial espresso machines on the planet. Rocket Espresso’s endless pursuit of espresso perfection has earned them an unmatched reputation in an industry that where only the best survive.
Rocket Espresso’s refreshing take on home espresso just got a new look with the Appartamento Nera! Their much-loved compact machine gets a cutting-edge black powder coat case while maintaining its adorably outsized controls and side panel cutouts in copper or white finishes. Inside, you still get the Appartamento’s 1.8-liter copper heat-exchange boiler for brewing and steaming coupled to a heated E61 group for boiler-to-spout temperature consistency. The Nera also includes quality of life features like sprung valves, an electronic water sensor, and an insulated steam wand; making it one of the best compact home espresso machines on the market.
- Modern Look: The new black case design helps differentiate the Appartamento Nera from the other mostly chrome E61 boxes.
- Excellent Espresso: The Appartamento’s prosumer design means that—once you get your technique down—shots will be consistently delicious.
- All Manual: The Nera’s all manual control layout encourages you to perfect your barista technique.
- Minimal Updates: The only difference on the Nera is its powder coated case and metal cup rail—and its cost.
