Simplicity beats complexity. This device is a classic example of simplicity triumphing over complexity. I previously onwed a top of the line gaggia “beans to coffee” machine which cost over £600 some years ago. This looked great, and was very convenient, but never made a decent cup of coffee in its life. In order to get an even vaguely acceptable strength it was necessary to have all the controls cranked up to maximum, which meant that only a dribble of coffee emerged at the end. It also went wrong regularly about every ten months and had to go off to be repaired. I was told that the issue with these machines was that they could not build up enough steam pressure (hence the problem with coffee strength) and that what i really needed was a pump action machine. Again, i went for the best one in ths shop, paying from memory about £500 for a pavoni. This proved worse than the gaggia. The coffee produced was either a large cup of luke warm faintly coloured water or a reasonable quantity of weak coffee.

This is a fantastic product. Cheaper than a lot of other coffee makers. The instructions on how to make coffee (other than espresso) are limited but individual preferences differ and great cappucinos, americanos can be produced after a little experimentation (observe the barista in your local coffee shop). Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die Presso ROK Espresso Coffee Maker:

  • Manual, non-electric espresso maker
  • Made from polished, high quality aluminium
  • Strengthened alloy formulation
  • Creates cafe style coffee in the comfort of your own home
  • Formally known as Presso Espresso Coffee Maker

I purchased this because, well, i love my coffee. I was tired of the noise my noisy espresso machine was making, and trying to keep it clean was rather annoying. It is a bit pricey, but compared to other espresso machines that can produce quality this good, it is an absolute bargain- the build qualitythe build quality is superb. Apparently it is made from engine-grade metal so it is virtually indestructible. The container itself is plastic so a little bit disappointing, but at least it won’t shatter like glass if i drop it i guess. But it feels so well built- ease of usesurprisingly i find this really easy to use. It does take quite a bit of learning, but it really is worth it.You see; most cheap domestic espresso machines produce a fake crema which in my opinion tastes horrible.

Excellent, but unforgiving, espresso maker (but). Makes absolutely fantastic espresso. Anyone who says it doesn’t, just hasn’t got it right: this is very understandable as it is very unforgiving, but when you get the right combination of coffee, grind, water temperature, pressure, etc, it makes up for all of it. The first week or two i had it i was getting some mediocre espresso out of it, mainly because to give it a proper testing and nail down the perfect technique required drinking more espresso in one sitting than i could handle. So i did the scientific thing: i invited over an acquaintance and we worked through all the different combinations of variables – coffee grind, coffee blend, how hard we pushed the handles, how much water we put in, how hot the water was – that we could think of until we were consistently producing a very, very impressive espresso (and we were severely over-caffeinated). There are many good videos on youtube detailing technique – watch a few and find what works for you. However, i had to remove a star for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the milk frother that comes with it is incredibly, frustratingly useless. I don’t think you could make a worse one if you tried. I know that it’s thrown in as a freebie, and that the espresso maker itself is the product you’re buying, but the fact that the frother is there made me want to use it and then it took me 4-6 days to calm down.

All i have to say on this machine is that it’s fantastic. However if your looking for a machine that gives always gives a thick crema look elsewhere as at the start it’s a pain to get one. Besten ROK Espresso Coffee Maker

World’s greatest coffee machine. . Been using this for a couple of years now. Makes brilliant coffee & seriously looks the part. I will never go back to using coffee machines. The simplicity of it is wonderful & it’s not messy. It takes a little while to perfect the coffee, but becomes easy after a while. You need to make sure you keep the coffee scooper as the coffee pusher create no holes and compact the coffee, then use the handles in a steady manner. I actually haven’t used the frother, so i cannot comment on that. Previously coffee machines, even good brands like delonghi have lasted me less than 1 year.

Superb coffee, i have drunk a lot of joe and had plenty of machines but the flavour and aroma takes me to a busy italian coffee bar. I have had the machine a couple of hours and can testify it is a quick process.

Takes a while to get the grind right but once you have, great piece of kit.
Great toy, hard to make espressos with it. . Very very hard to get things right. If the grind is the tiniest bit too fine or the tamp is too hard it just clogs the whole thing and nothing will come out, if the grind is the tiniest bit too coarse all the coffee comes out in 1 second. Now the frother, that’s just a joke. It doesn’t work, throw it away.

I’ve had one for a couple of years and can wholeheartedly recommend it. I was worried that it wouldn’t stand up to the pressure of regular use but it has done.

Really pleased, well packaged, stylish. Yet to see if it makes good coffee.
Surprised how good it is for a manual. Our espressos lack crema and that syrupy texture but we do get good flavour depth from the espresso. . So i’m impressed in relation to price.

Love the rok, makes the smoothest, most satisfying coffee i’ve ever made. My girlfriend has started to use it too and she loves it. Takes a little experimenting to start with to get the perfect espresso, but once you get it t your liking you’ll never regret itthanks rok.

If you’re looking for a real espresso machine and are reluctant to lay out at least £350 on a proper one that doesn’t produce imitation espresso, then the rok could be the answer. The rok works on the same principle of more expensive machines except it doesn’t heat the water and the machine, like lever operated machines, doesn’t use an electric pump. Like any espresso machine there are a few cardinal rules that must be followed to ensure excellent results. Always use freshly roasted coffee beans and grind with a decent grinder that is suitable for espresso (porlex, zassenhaus panama and lido are examples of suitable hand grinders). Also, treat yourself to a proper 49mm tamper – the plastic one provided is next to uselessremember, don’t expect to get superb results the first time you use the rok. Experiment with different grinds, remembering a double shot of espresso should take between 20 and 30 seconds to express. Always thoroughly warm the machine by filling the machine a few times with boiling water (with portafilter attached) before brewing. The rok website has some useful tips in its faq section. There’s also plenty of info on youtube.
