History of Rocket

Coffee has become an essential part of many people's daily lives. Coffee makers have been developed to meet the growing demands of coffee lovers and one notable brand is Rocket of Italy. Rocket has a long history dating back to the 1920s. In this article you will learn more about the rise of the company and how it became one of the leading manufacturers of coffee machines.

The company started in 1927 as a small metalworking shop in the city of Milan. It was later taken over by Giuseppe Bambi, who initiated the entry into the coffee machine industry. Bambi was fascinated by coffee machines and was always looking for ways to improve them. Believing that steam was a crucial component of espresso quality, he developed an innovative steam pressure system that has become a hallmark of Rocket espresso machines today.

The Rocket brand was founded in 2007 by Andrew Meo and his business partner Daniele Berenbruch. A coffee enthusiast and entrepreneur, Meo had a passion for coffee and collaborated with Rocket Italia to develop a new range of machines that would capture the true essence of espresso making. Using first class engineering materials and craftsmanship, the company was able to deliver a range of sophisticated machines that caused a stir in the coffee industry.

Rocket Espresso quickly became a household name in the coffee maker community, and in 2008 the company introduced its first home coffee maker, the Giotto. This machine was an instant hit and helped make the Rocket brand one of the most recognizable names in the coffee industry.

Rocket's success can be attributed to several key factors. First, the company's unwavering commitment to quality is a driving force behind its success. The company uses high-quality materials and applies world-class engineering processes to ensure its products meet the highest standards.
Second, Rocket Espresso's flagship R58 is widely regarded as one of the best espresso machines out there. The R58 is a twin boiler machine that offers exceptional power and control. The machine's PID temperature control system ensures that the boiler temperature is always maintained at the optimum level, resulting in consistent espresso shots.

Finally, Rocket Espresso's ability to innovate and evolve has also contributed to its success. The company is constantly looking for ways to improve its machines and has introduced several new models over the years, including the Appartamento, the Mozzafiato and the Cronometro.

In summary, Rocket has a rich history spanning several decades. The company's commitment to quality, innovation and exceptional craftsmanship has made it one of the leading coffee machine manufacturers in the world. With its range of sophisticated machines and commitment to excellence, Rocket Italy will remain a dominant force in the coffee industry for many years to come.
