Rocket – Giotto Evoluzione (V2 Heat-Exchange Boiler)

Giotto: This model is identical its counterpart the Cellini Evoluzione in terms of functionality and internal components. The only differences are aesthetic and external, with the Giotto having (arguably) a more stylish design, with angled ‘wing’ side panels and slightly different gauge designs (see photo). 

Preference for the Giotto or Cellini is entirely subjective, as they function exactly the same, although the Giotto has arguably a more ‘unique’ and stylish design. Due to extra stainless steel materials required for its design, the price of the Giotto is also marginally higher than the Cellini.

Product Summary:

The latest (V2) version of the Evoluzione, Rocket’s flagship model intended for home use, is one of the strongest performing competitors in its class. Unlike the larger and higher priced Rocket R 58 (dual boiler) model, all permutations of the Evoluzione model have heat-exchange (HX) boilers. While HX models generally require more skill to use, they have the advantage of being less costly (due to fewer parts) and with practice can still make espressos of the equal (or in the hands of a skilled barista, possibly better) quality espresso shots.

Like all other Rocket models, the Evoluzione is hand-crafted in Milan, Italy. Rocket prides itself on using commercial-grade components – you will not find them cutting corners or using any cheap plastic parts. Highlights include the acclaimed E-61 brew group, a strong (yet quiet) rotary pump, and a powerful steam boiler attached to a no-burn steam wand. This is very solid machine overall, and built to last. More importantly, it consistently produces superb espresso shots.

Nearly all customers who have purchased a Rocket Evoluzione from Caffe Tech have been very happy with their choice. This is a truly excellent value for its price point, and we often recommend the Evoluzione V2 over other machines in the same category.
Key Benefits:
  • Commercial-grade heat-exchange (HX) boiler, allowing for simultaneous brewing and steaming.
  • Precise control over temperature settings: as with other Rockets the PID controller is detachable to prevent the risk of users burning their hands on the group head, and so as not to detract from the look of the machine-front
  • Extremely sturdy design with commercial-grade parts, built to last and easy to repair – it requires a bit more practice to become skilled at using an HX boiler model, but it is arguably more fun to use.

Feature Highlights:
  • Pre-infusion system, operated by turning the lever up halfway, accurately pre-infuses the espresso grinds with enough water to fully extract maximum flavor and aroma.
  • Equipped with a powerful rotary pump, for quieter operation, and able to deliver a high, consistent level of pressure for best results during extraction.
  • No-burn steam wand.
  • Insulated HX boiler.
