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.
Black Powder Coat: The Nera's case is finished in a resilient black powder coat.
Heat Exchanger: The 1.8-liter HX boiler allows for simultaneous brewing and steaming.
E61 Group: Boiler-heated and backflushable, E61 groups offer reliable operation and more consistent brew temperature.
Compact Case: The Appartamento's compact 10"x17" footprint makes it one of the smallest prosumer machines on the market.
Manual Control: Brew and steam controls are all analog for hands-on brewing.
Three-Year Warranty: We're proud to offer three years of parts and labor support for every Rocket machine purchase.
