Rocket Appartamento TCA

Rocket Appartamento TCA - The new generation of the popular classic

There are classics that never go out of fashion. They evolve, adapt to the times and yet retain their unmistakable essence. One of these classics is the Rocket Appartamento espresso machine. We are pleased to present here the latest innovation from Rocket Espresso Milano: The Rocket Espresso Appartamento TCA - the next generation of the iconic Rocket Appartamento.

On our blog stage, we'll raise the curtain and shed light on all the important information and exciting details surrounding this new advancement. So, get excited and sit back, the show begins!

What does the new edition have to offer?

With five new design variants, a completely redesigned brew group and updated electronics, the Appartamento TCA sets new standards in the world of espresso. But that's not all. In times when sustainability and energy efficiency are becoming increasingly important, the Rocket Appartamento TCA has also taken a step forward in this area. The new edition consumes less energy without sacrificing performance or quality.

And the abbreviation "TCA"? That stands for Temperature Control Adjustment. This allows you to adjust the temperature so that it exactly matches your coffee beans and your taste.

Make espresso in style

At first glance at the Rocket Appartamento TCA, it is immediately clear that this is where innovative technology meets unmistakable design. The twelve striking circles on the side walls, which have been highlighted using an embossing technique, magically attract the eye, while their depth creates an intense, three-dimensional effect. The new, vertically aligned Rocket lettering on the back also sets a skilful accent and underlines the modern design.

The clean lines with rounded sides and gentle curves - a masterpiece of designer Valerio Cometti - give the Rocket Appartamento TCA a unique, new aesthetic. Thus, the brew group also captivates with its dynamic as well as functional shape, creating an unmistakable look.

But the Rocket Appartamento TCA offers more than just visual highlights: it can be customized. Choose between classic stainless steel or matte black for the housing and set your own accents with side panels in white, black or copper. With five possible color combinations, you can design the machine according to your personal taste.

Experience personal coffee enjoyment as easy as child's play

In addition to the impressive new design, the further developments in the electronics are also impressive. These guarantee outstanding coffee enjoyment:

Like its predecessor, the Appartamento TCA features a 1.8-liter insulated copper boiler and a vibratory pump that pumps hot water to the brewing unit at up to 15 bar.

With a 2.5-liter water tank and a combination pressure gauge for boiler pressure display, it sets new standards, because from now on the pressure setting of the boiler - in steps of 0.1 bar from 0.9 to 1.2 bar- can be individually adjusted via a pressostat. And although the pressure is 1 bar by default, the motto is: your espresso, your rules. This gives you full control over your espresso and, thanks to improved control electronics and the new design of the E61 brew group and the housing, you can also benefit from maximum intuitive and simple operation.

The E61 brew group has a slimmer design and now stands out clearly. The new electronics, on the other hand, make it possible to choose between four different preset temperatures. In addition, the Rocket Appartamento TCA is equipped with an automated standby mode that activates after 30 minutes.

And if that wasn't enough, the Appartamento TCA allows you to froth milk and make espresso at the same time thanks to the HX system (heat exchanger).

Customize the Portafilter - How to do it?

You would already like to know how to set the boiler pressure and the water temperature? Espresso Perfetto will show you the way:

  • First, turn off your machine.
  • Pull the reference lever up, then turn the machine back on and wait until the status light turns yellow.
  • Now move the reference lever down.
  • When the lamp flashes red, you can increase the pressure by 0.1 bar by briefly pulling the reference lever (1x flash corresponds to 0.9 bar, 2x flash 1.0 bar, 3x flash 1.1 bar, 4x flash 1.2 bar).
  • By pressing the reference lever for a longer time, the set pressure level is saved. After that, the lamp changes to flashing green and you can adjust the sensitivity of the heating control in the same way.
  • After pressing the reference lever again for a long time, this setting is also saved. The lamp then changes to a white glow and your machine is back in normal operation.

And voilá. Now you're not only an espresso lover, but also a master of the craft.

Saving energy with pleasure

With every sip of espresso you enjoy from the Appartamento TCA, you will be helping to make our planet a little bit greener in the future.

The standby function is an example of these innovative changes. It enables the machine to automatically switch to energy-saving mode or switch off after 30 minutes. This not only saves electricity, but also extends the life of the machine. In addition, the internal boiler insulation has also been improved, which reduces the overall energy consumption of the Rocket Appartamento TCA by up to 15%.

At the same time, the heating time of ten minutes is pleasingly short. In this way, you not only protect the environment, but also your wallet with regard to the electricity bill - a win-win situation for sustainability and budget.
