The Appartamento V1 HX (Heat Exchanger) is Rocket’s new compact domestic machine, aimed at home users that want artisan quality coffee but don't have a huge amount of space.
Handmade in Milan, these E61 manual lever machines combine stylish minimalist design and great temperature stability for perfect espresso.
It's been produced with a few key points in mind:
- It's compact.
- It's been produced with fewer materials, making it Rocket’s greenest machine.
- Despite it's lower price tag, there’s no compromise in quality.
- Great new cutaway design feature with a choice of copper or white side panels. (This is the white version, see the copper version here.)
The Appartamento V1 contains an advanced heat exchanger design, featuring an optimised ‘boiler capacity to thermo siphon system ratio’. This technology results in a fast heat up time and stable, separate temperatures for both brew and steam, allowing you to brew espresso and steam milk simultaneously.
It runs from an internal reservoir only, (no mains water connection). The boiler and fresh water reservoir have microprocessor controlled, automatic level controls. This means water is automatically drawn from the reservoir into the boiler, plus it protects the boiler from burn out should the supply of water run out. The reservoir is easily accessed for refilling, just under the removable cup tray.
The Appartamento also comes with a number of accessories - see the technical info below for a full list.
