Hand Made In Italy - Watch the R58 Being Made

Body Construction

The Rocket R58 is made with high quality AISI 304 stainless steel, providing long lasting beauty and durability. Even the cup frame surround is made with stainless steel.


Commercial Grade Brew Head

Weighing in at 9 lbs, the Rocket R58 has one of the highest quality, commercial grade group heads available, providing outstanding heat stability. Heat stability is a crucial part of making good espresso as temperature fluctuations can greatly alter the flavor and consistency of brewed espresso.


Dual Pre-Infusion System

Obtain smooth coffee extraction with great aroma, body, and “crema” through a dual pre-infusion system. The system features a mechanical pre-infusion system with a progressively working piston and static pre-infusion chamber. Anyone who has done their research in the espresso machine market will know this is a unique feature that isn’t available on many competing espresso machines.

Two Copper Boilers

The boiler for coffee brewing has a 0.58 liter capacity, while the second boiler has a 1.7 liter capacity and is used for steaming / hot water dispensing. Both boilers are made with high quality copper and come with brass end plates, providing great heat stability. For additional temperature stability, the boilers have external insulation. Heating power is optimized to result in quick heat up times. The brewing boiler uses 1400 watts and the steaming / hot water dispenser boiler uses 1400 watts. When the boilers are used simultaneously, the combined power consumption of both boilers combined is 1550 watts.


Commercial Grade Rotary Vane Water Pump

For optimal performance, the Rocket R58 features a commercial grade, high quality, rotary water pump. It even has external pressure adjustment for enhanced pressure control.

Video: Sound Level of the Rotary Vane Pump on the Rocket R58

The sound level of the Rocket R58 rotary vane pump during extraction is about 67 decibels if measured right next to the machine. If measured 3 feet away, the sound level drops to about 59 decibels.


Dual Pressure Gauges

Monitor the pressure in each boiler with high quality, dual pressure gauges – one gauge for each boiler.



Cool Touch Steam Wand

A nice feature on the Rocket R58 is the cool touch, anti-burn, stainless steel steam wand. Only the nozzle gets hot during operation, making operation, safe and worry free. As an added benefit, milk doesn’t bake to the wand during operation, making cleaning a breeze. The steam nozzle is designed for easy milk frothing and can produce some of the finest microfoam possible.


Low Water Indicator

A microprocessor is used to automatically control the water level in both boilers. An additional low water indication system monitors the water reservoir to ensure that water level doesn’t get too low. Operating the machine without water can cause costly damage to the heating element. The low water indication system helps prevent this from happening. The power button will flash when the water is low.


Water Reservoir or Direct Water Connection

The Rocket R58 has two water options – a reservoir or a direct water connection. The water reservoir has a capacity of 2.5 liters. The espresso machine also has a full drip tray drainage system.

Differences Between Alex Duetto 3 and the Rocket R58

  • Both the Alex Duetto 3 and the Rocket R58 are pretty large machines and can take up a lot of space on the counter, but the Alex Duetto 3 is about 2 inches wider than the Rocket R58.
  • The boilers on the Duetto are a little larger than those on the Rocket R58 - so you can brew and steam longer for more drinks, etc.
  • Some customers say the build quality of the drip tray is somewhat lacking on the Alex Duetto 3. The Rocket R58 doesn't get these complaints.
  • The Rocket R58 is a 15amp machine. The Alex Duetto is available in 15 or 20 amp. Compared to a Duetto running on 20 amp, the steam is weaker with the Rocket R58.
  • The Rocket R58 has dual pre-infusion
  • The Rocket R58 has a slightly larger (0.1 liter difference) water reservoir.
  • Portafilter handles on the Alex Duetto 3 are a little more ergonomical compared to the Rocket R58 portafiler handles.

  1. No visible electronics looks great

    Posted by keith on 23rd Jun 2017

    The espresso shots are wonderful. I love my machine. Machine was shipped extremely fast and double boxed with added protection. The detachable pid remote is actually one of the features I liked as I prefer a traditional look with no visible electronic.

  2. Couldn't be happier with my new R58

    Posted by Derek on 23rd Jun 2017

    I think Rocket did a great job. The R58 works exactly as described...actually better. Its quiet, and its PID interface is very easy to use. Not much to screw up here. The preinfusion works beautifully as well, despite what some say.

  3. Double boiler is the way to go!

    Posted by Barber on 23rd Jun 2017

    If something happens to my Rocket, I'd order another tomorrow. It is much easier for us to use than our previous HX machine

  4. Important Part of Our Morning Routine

    Posted by Marcus on 23rd Jun 2017

    This is a beautiful machine. It is a fully capable espresso maker.

  5. Formost espresso machine

    Posted by David on 23rd Jun 2017

    This is the most fun a person can have making a cappuccino. This is by far the foremost espresso machine for home use, ever fabricated; beautiful, well engineered and easy to utilize.

  6. Great for steaming

    Posted by Robert on 23rd Jun 2017

    Excellent repeatable shots time after time right after each other. Loads of steam.

  7. Great machine and amazing service

    Posted by Tomas on 27th Jul 2016

    I love my Rocket r58. I have been using it for past 2 months every day and it's an incredible espresso shots pulling powerhouse. It's beatifully made. Definitevely a centerpice of our kitchen.

    But I have to send a shout out to Joe and his incredible servise as well. Of course I foud his store over the weekend. I wrote him an email about the price and he was really quick to respond. We exchanged a few emails and he was as quick every time, on Saturday night / Sunday morning. I got an incredible deal on this machine I couldn't get anywhere else.

    I have Amazon Prime. So I'm spoiled by Amazon shipping. But Espresso Outlet is as good. Gigantic box was at my doorstep incredibly quick. Which is even more impresive given that the box was so big that I had to move some furniture to be able to get it inside my appartment.

  8. Customer Review

    Posted by John on 9th Mar 2016

    I was looking to upgrade from my Ranillio Silvia and Rocky Espresso machine setup; the Ranillio has provided a ton of love and good use over a 10-year course and in fact it still works like a charm BUT I am a foodie, wine lover, enjoy my espresso and family entertainment so it was the right time to set out on this new journey of stepping it up a notch.

    The same process I do whenever I upgrade any electronic and or appliance in my home I do the research; if your spending 3k plus you better make sure you do the homework and work with a solid reputable retailer especially when your dealing with specialty manufactures that you are not going to find in the typical retail stores.

    What are our resources? You tube, what I call the top 4 online espresso retailers and or distributers? and Blogs…. What I tend to see are blogs are bias and or not a real reflection of a product more of an opinion or that persons experience but you don’t know their level of expertise so it’s a hard gauge, and the retailers and or distributers are bias towards specific machines; but I will say this give make sure you know what you want in term of features, usage, price point than you can pretty much narrow it down quickly and this is what I did.

    What are the top online resources? 1st in Coffee, Wholelatte, Seattle Coffee Gear and Chris’s Coffee 1st in coffee is where I purchased my first machine my Ranillio very positive experience and the owner has good overall general knowledge of his products, Wholelatte have not dealt with outside watching You Tube and videos are helpful one thing I saw here was price point was a bit higher (again never called to negotiate), Seattle “who does not like Gail’s videos and passion they are great; must be a great local place, and Chris’s I have never seen such consistent reviews and they are responsive BUT then I stumbled across Espresso Outlet now seeing the name I am thinking “Outlet” for me that means cheap re-branding machines with kids running the store front but I sent an inquiry anyway, why not I am in the market for a machine lets exhaust all options.

    Feb 12th Joe from Espresso Outlet calls me; he’s the owner and we spent at least 2 hours on the phone and he walked me through machine types, prices what to look for and answered every question under the sun; before we hung up he sent me some links and suggestions; it was towards the end of that call I told Joe I am buying from you regardless he just haf the honesty about him and took the sales BS out of it. He took the time to explain, and all his suggestions were inline with all the reviews and others I spoke with. I than came to realize this is a family man running a small mom and pop shop not this huge retailer AND he has a solid relationship with one of the best distributors so your getting two level of support one much more personal and the other is your plan B and they both support one another AWESOME especially when you’re buying a machine from ITALY or any over the pond manufacturer

    Let me remind you I am not buying a car or house it’s an espresso machine J but I am anal; I spent that weekend which happened to be Valentine weekend reviewing and exchanging e-mails with Joe who was very responsive; in the end we made the deal that Monday. Espresso Outlet is the real deal they are not an Outlet they deal with high end quality machines in which they test drives themselves first, so you won’t see every model on the market available; Joe weeds out the good and the bad. Espresso Outlet is very competitive in the market place and strives to ensure his customers are getting the best price point and value; with that the customer service is hands down the best I seen in any store… I wont sit here and say there was not a glitch or two but those where pure shipping issues in which Joe tackled them right on and resolved and at the end of the day I received a great machine, great service and I hope I established a new business relationship with Espresso Outlet

    You asking what setup did I get right? First keep in mind as I stated earlier walk in knowing what your budget is, what functions you want, usage and tolerance for educating yourself on making these great coffee based drinks because its not like a car or TV your taking out of the box and driving or watching it will take some time to dial it in no matter what machine you go with it.

    I am a proud owner of the……. Rocket v58 and what a machine from looks, feel, quality of the construction and lets not forget the coffee is amazing BUT it’s not the machine itself that makes the coffee amazing its 3 other factors and 2 of the 3 are obvious the beans and water but the 3rd not so much it’s the GRINDER I thought I can get away with my Rocky grinder and I could have but Joe explained to me the difference of temp with the grind, the BURRs etc… to much science for me but he held hard on get a grinder so I did MAZZER doser and its amazing… He allowed me to try the grinder side by side and if not happy send it back, well he was spot on the grinder made a BIG difference needless to say its on my countertop now. YES, you will spend 30% of what you paid for the machine for a quality grinder and read the reviews in fact they all say you may as well invest in a high end grinder and a bit less of a machine – the grinder is that important. In closing if your spending good money on an espresso machine go all the way in the end its worth it and it’s a lifetime gift to you, the gamily and guests plus you can pass it down the family tree.

    Joe thank you for your service, professionalism the whole 9 and anyone reading this and in the market you found your online retailer no hesitation!!!!!! Ciao
