The ROK works with fresh ground coffee, like a conventional espresso machine. There's no need for wasteful and expensive pods or capsules.
Unlike push-button, automatic machines, you're in complete control of your coffee making from start to finish and can fine-tune your method until you find the coffee that's just right for you.
For those who prefer their coffee with milk, the ROK includes a stainless steel frother. The hand-sized, hand-pumped frother allows you to texture warm milk for lattes and cappuccinos.
Also included is a reusable storage tin, a measuring scoop which doubles as a tamper, and a shot splitter attachment for when you're making coffee for two.ROK includes: br> ROK espresso maker br> Portafilter br> Reusable storage tin br> Stainless steel milk frother br> Combined coffee scoop and tamper br> Instructions br> 10 year warranty on metal parts br> br> For more details view - br> - The New Old Guide to Getting the Most From Your ROK br> - ROK Docs br> - BPA Test Results for the Presso & ROK br> br> Dimensions (cm) br> 33.5x26x33.5 br> br> Weight (kg) br> 3.43
Makes the best home made coffee. Took a bit of trial and error to get the grind right, but well worth it.
Marvelous machine, great in every way!
Definitely on my Wish List. Met a fellow camper with the Rok who made me a coffee. Best tasting coffee after my coffee at Parachilna. I have a fully automatic Saeco at home, would love to replace it with the Rok. Just what I need for great coffee in the bush - no power needed.
Have been using these for some time now at a friends place and decided to finally get one myself. They are great. Great design, and stands front and centre in the kitchen. Quick and easy to use, and the coffee tastes great.
I found this review really useful and it has some really nice product shots http://www.slinkystudio.info/reviews/2013/1/5/rok-espresso-maker-review.html
Having owned and used a Presso, forerunner of the Rok for 5 years I can tell you it's great. It makes a perfect coffee and it's so easy to use. Clean up is fast, a quick rinse under hot water and drain. And ...... no electricity required, definitely ticks all the boxes.
Makes a great cup of coffee, looks fantastic, making a great cup of coffee takes a bit of skill and can be difficult to pick up but it definitely adds to the satisfaction of the coffee however at the end of the day the plastic components contain BPA at currently unconfirmed levels.
This is the perfect office coffee maker. It only takes a few minutes to squeeze a delicious cup of coffee, and seconds to clean up. No waiting to get up steam - just fill it from the Zip MiniBoil. No expensive hydraulics or electrics to go wrong. No capsules to chuck. Brilliant !
This is not just a great coffee maker, it's stylish and is quality built. You can feel the quality by the weight of the machine as well as the smoothness of operation. There are cheaper versions around that make good coffee, but they wont last as long, nor will they give you the same sense of satisfaction. You won't want to put your ROK in the cupboard, you'll keep it on display :) I have a Presso (pre ROK) and I love it. I sell ROKs in our cafe and our customers are always happy with them! Well worth the money in my opinion.
A home must have and lets face it cost about the same as a months coffee shop bought coffees
This is the BEST coffee machine ever... It makes a perfect cup of Java and in no time. I love it.
This machine sits on my kitchen bench - Gets used daily - No fuss - Great coffee. (Plus good for weekends away)
Taste is not to bad for a hand machine - coffee will always taste better out in the bush anyway.
Good robust unit, but the price is outrageous for what you get. Would take a long time to amortise the cost over the number of camping trips, but it is the only way I could justify the price. Would I buy again or recommend it - No. There must be cheaper units that make the same tasting espresso out there!!!
A machine that simple, hands-on feeling yet great coffee at no extra sweat or waiting in the queue for burnt cafe coffee.
A classical piece of kitchen tools that has a WOW factor and sure to envy your critics......
