Care: Wipe with a warm, damp cloth as needed. Rinse filter and shower screen after each use
Includes: One ROK EspressoGC maker, one single spout portafilter, one double shot splitter, one combination scoop/tamper
Instructions: Fill the portafilter with coffee ground to espresso fineness and apply a level and firm tamping pressure to compact into a puck. Lock the portafilter into the ROK. Place your cup underneath the portafilter spouts. Fill the ROK's water reservoir with water and lift the arms of the ROK to fill the brewing chamber with water. Allow several seconds for pre-infusion before firmly grasping both arms of the ROK and squeezing inward to begin extracting espresso. Continue to squeeze the arms inward until you have extracted the desired amount of espresso
Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, perfectly brewed espresso is a matter of taste. From a British company called Rok comes a non-electric espresso maker that puts the power completely in your hands so you can make each cup just the way you like it.
While steam-powered espresso makers have been around since the turn of the 20th century, the Rok Espresso Maker is a hand-pumped machine. Not a single volt of electricity necessary (no pricey coffee pods either). The sleek engine grade metal and elegant shape make a statement on the countertop and bring new joy to a cherished part of any coffee connoisseur's day.
For best results, be sure to use finely ground espresso beans and boiling hot water. By changing the amount of pressure you apply to the handles, you can control the strength of the espresso you make. The slower and steadier you press, the stronger the taste.
The Rok Espresso Maker comes with a 10 year guarantee and is packaged in a reusable tin that includes a measuring spoon, detachable double spout, and a stainless steel milk frother.
