Rocket Espresso's refreshing take on home espresso just got a new look with the Appartamento Nera! Their much-loved compact machine gets a cutting-edge black powder coat case while maintaining its adorably outsized controls and side panel cutouts in copper or white finishes. Inside, you still get the Appartamento's 1.8-liter copper heat-exchange boiler for brewing and steaming coupled to a heated E61 group for boiler-to-spout temperature consistency. The Nera also includes quality of life features like sprung valves, an electronic water sensor, and an insulated steam wand; making it one of the best compact home espresso machines on the market.

  • Black Powder Coat - The Nera's case is finished in resilient black powder coat.
  • Heat Exchanger - The 1.8-liter HX boiler allows for simultaneous brewing and steaming.
  • E61 Group - Boiler-heated and backflushable, E61 groups offer reliable operation and more consistent brew temperature.
  • Compact Case - The Appartamento's compact 10"x17" footprint makes it one of the smallest prosumer machines on the market.
  • Manual Control - Brew and steam controls are all analog for hands-on brewing.
  • Three Year Warranty - We're proud to offer three years of parts and labor support for every Rocket machine purchase.
  • Pros
    • Modern Look - The new black case design helps differentiate the Appartamento Nera from the other mostly chrome E61 boxes.
    • Excellent Espresso - The Appartamento's prosumer design means that—once you get your technique down—shots will be consistently delicious.
    • All Manual - The Nera's all manual control layout encourages you to perfect your barista technique.
  • Cons
    • Minimal Updates - The only difference on the Nera is its powder coated case and metal cup rail—and its cost.
  • Tips and Tricks

    While there is an electronic water sensor, make sure to check your tank for enough water before pulling a shot.
