Art Series #8 Rocket Espresso R NINE ONE “Chiara Scuro”


In stock


For sale- The boss’ personal pride and joy.

Well over $3.5k of custom work went into this one and visitors to our roastery would have seen it. This never to be repeated custom work is supplied “as is” with 3 month parts RTB warranty. It has done around 3000 shots and has received a thorough service and our buddy Rick aka The Coffee Machinist has cast his critical eye over all of his custom work and spruced it to look absolutely immaculate. We’ll also supply the original stainless sides.

For this machine, we want you to view it in person and for this reason, we’d prefer it to be for sale from the roastery. Shipping in the OEM crate can be arranged if the purchaser insists, but at your own risk due to the nature of the custom work.

“Chiara Scuro” extended the Rocket Espresso Art Series family to eight.

Contrasting light and shade paints a picture of what we wanted to achieve with the epic Rocket R Nine One, and we’re thrilled with the final result.

Favouring brushed and selectively tinted stainless steel, anodised aluminium, blued brass and charred timber, the machine has the presence and elegance we feel it deserves- to match the incredible performance of the Rocket Espresso prosumer flagship.

This machine incorporates a world first for espresso shou-sugi-ban (Japanese charred oak) technique to create a stable and hard wearing plus aesthetic with textural properties of charcoal. Under the timber, a 2mm stainless steel sub-frame makes for stability of each side, but there is so much more!

Wherever you look on this machine, there are surprises to be found:

  • Beautiful hand brushing
  • Anodising
  • Tint over hand brush
  • Heat blueing
  • Custom blackened brass steam lever and paddle actuator

As always, we thank our buddy Rick aka The Coffee Machinist for developing dreams and then making them reality
