Rocket Espresso R9 Commercial 2 Group Espresso Machine

In stock

The new Rocket Espresso R9 series available in 2,3 and 4 Group models.

Rocket Espresso are making big strides in the coffee industry for such a relatively new company. The R9 ticks all the boxes and shows the statement of their intent. The main feature is the saturated groups for unprecedented levels of temperature stability similar to the La Marzocco group commercial machines, with individually temperature controlled boilers for each group. It also has flip style arms like the Slayer, making steaming simple and theatrical at the same time. Combined with Rocket Espresso traditional Italian design and style. This is an advanced 2 group commercial machine at great value that truly stands out. For 2017 we also have the R9 as our main 2 group machine in our small batch coffee roastery.

2 Group R9 version In Stock on a next working day to most UK addresses with Freightroute Pallet service. Please allow 2-3 working days as a precaution.

Please contact us for prices on 3 and 4 group versions.

The pursuit of the perfect espresso is an endless quest. In designing the Rocket Espresso R 9, engineer Ennio Berti opted for a fully saturated group to further enhance machine temperature stability through PID control in the stainless steel multi boiler machine. Pressure transducer technology was used to dramatically reduce steam pressure recovery times, increasingly important in high volume cafes. Aesthetically the R 9 shares the contemporary look that sets Rocket Espresso machines apart from others, with a lowered machine height that allows for a better interaction between the barista and the customer. The digital display features boiler temperature adjustable in increments of 0.1 degrees celsius and shot timers for each group.
