Specs and usage:
Just pull the E61 grouphead lever up and the R58 brews your espresso shot. The lever action engages the pump when up and then engages the pressure relief valve when pulled all the way back down upon brewing completion.
Rocket Dual Boilers R58 comes with two commercial size 58 mm portafilter handles, one with single spout and the other with double spout. It is made of chrome-Nickel plated high density brass that contributes to the thermal stability. Included with the handles are two ground coffee filter baskets for single and double espresso shots. A 58mm E61 Naked Bottomless portafilter is available.
E61 grouphead is a desirable feature that you can find in the Rocket lever espresso machines and more expensive commercial espresso makers. It is made of high density solid brass (about 9Lbs!) and beautifully chrome platted, polished to perfection. This grouphead is always hot and ready for brewing due to it's thermosyphonic circulation system that circle hot water continuously between the grouphead and the boiler for better thermal stability. With the added PID in R58 machines, temperature stability and control is easier than ever.
E61 Blank shots? Single boiler HX E61 machines require significant flashing of water (blank shot) when the machine is on stand by more than 15-20 minutes to relief pressure and stabilize temperature at the E61 grouphead. The R58 is equipped with dedicated PID controlled brew boiler that unlike single boiler HX machines, it never reaches steam temperature, therefore pressure built up at the grouphead is minimal and minimal flashing is required if at all. This contributes to much better consistency of shots.
Two boilers with automatic refill allow you to brew and steam at the same time, there is no waiting time between brewing espresso and steaming milk. Steam Boiler is 1.8 Liters in volume and coffee boiler is small at 580ml. Each comes with 1400 watts heating element. Since both have automatic water refill there is no wait time between one espresso shot to another and you get instant steam power at any given time. Once Rocket R58 is on, it's always ready to make any coffee any time.
Exterior PID is now included in all Rocket R58 espresso machines models. The temperature control is located on the left side of the machine attached with cable. It contributes to highest precision of water temperature and stability adjustable at your finger tips. Programming is made by using the included leaflet for temperature conversion table. With a PID control, Espresso Shots guaranteed to be consistent time after time.
Boiler gauge and steam pressure gauge with ready light let you know when the machine is ready to brew coffee or steam milk. You can adjust the brewing pressure OPV (Over Pressure Valve) and steam pressure by adjusting the Sirai commercial grade pressure stat.
Sirai pressurestat may be is slightly noisy at home environment (it clicks) but is considered reliable and accurate.
Automatic Boiler Refill - When the water level inside the boiler goes low in the Rocket R58, a probe sends a signal to the pump to fill water into the boiler until it reaches its optimal water level. Water used with the machine must have positive and negative ions for the sensor to work properly.
The R58 has a manual pressure relief valve. The lever to the right if the E61 grouphead controls the valve. Pulling it up starts the brew process, pulling down stops the brew process. Once stopped, Rocket's manual pressure relief valve opens and release pressure from the grouphead and the portafilter handle to the tray. The pressure relief dries the used ground coffee in the portafilter handle so its packed nicely into a cookie shape, easier to knock it out.
The Rocket E61 Grouphead has a pre infusion feature. It creates uniform extraction of the ground coffee in the portafilter handle, resulting in maximum aroma.
Rocket Espresso R58 comes with water tank and it is also plumb-in ready for water and drain connection. Both drain and water connection are required when plumbing the machine in.
Water connection / plumb in feature is standard in the Rocket R58 espresso machines. However, keep in mind that direct water connection to your main require filtration system and flow control of your household water pressure. Please consult us prior to hooking it up.
Rocket R58 comes with a dedicated full size boiler just for steaming. This feature guarantee high steam power, continuous any time all the time. The other boiler is ready to pull the perfect espresso shots consistently one after the other thanks to its PID temperature control.
Separate stainless steel wands for hot water and one for steaming or frothing milk.
Swivel base with anti burn dual layer insulation wand for steaming milk.
