ROK is a manual, non-electric espresso maker which is made from polished, high quality aluminium.
Not only does it look good but it is also environmentally friendly as the only power required is to heat the water as needed for an espresso.
Perfect for use at home or for holiday homes, caravans or on boats.
The pressure required to make the espresso is achieved with the lowering of the lever arms.
The process of lowering the arms traps air and forces water through the ground coffee at a high pressure.
All you need to do is bring some water to the boil, place coffee in the steel filter/portafilter, pour the boiling water into the chamber at the top, raise the arms to let the water filter through and lower the lever arms to brew your espresso.
That's all there is to it. A Cappuccino or latte can also be made using the stainless steel milk frother.
Formerly known as the Presso, the ROK Espresso Coffee Maker has a similar design but with strengthened alloy formulation, increased thickness of top arms, a reinforced water chamber and comes with reusable embossed metal storage tin.

If you enjoy the ritual of coffee making and can spare 5 minutes then this is for you. However, be advised that making an espresso with this device is an exact science. Providing you follow these steps you will pull outstanding coffees every time (the packaged instructions could do with being a little more in-depth):
1. Pre-warm the portafilter by pouring boiling water over the outside metal casing for a few seconds
2. Pre-warm your cup of choice. I fill with boiling water, leave for a minute then discard. These 2 steps ensure your coffee retains its heat and doesn't arrive lukewarm.
3. Grind 18 grams of beans as finely as you can. You'll need a burr grinder such as the handheld Porlex model here: (Porlex Stainless Steel & Ceramic Hand Coffee Grinder).
4. Tamp your ground coffee so that it's level and tightly packed. Insert portafilter into the device and secure firmly.
5. Half fill the water chamber with boiling water. Slowly raise the arms to the top. Now here's the key part; continue to fill chamber until there's only a small air gap above the water line. This helps create the requisite pressure for a nice thick crema. Without this pressure your espresso will be under-extracted.
6. Two small pre-pumps will build up even more pressure. By pre-pump I mean the merest of squeezes; you don't want to start the extraction just yet. The water line is a good indicator of how far your pre-pumps should travel.
7. Place cup underneath the portafilter and squeeze the arms downwards for 25-30 seconds in one smooth motion.
I should add that due to the pressure build up the final extraction does require a bit of muscle so this may not be for everyone. It'd make a great gift for the right person though. Looks absolutely stunning (especially in copper) and is a joy to use. Can't recommend highly enough!
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. The ROK still looks like the same day i purchased it.
Update 2: Now the portafilter is coming apart. Reading around, I see this is a common problem. I'm expecting the manufacturer's response to be the same execrable, unhelpful, customer-hostile mantra (i.e., pay us more money).
Previously: Superb lever-style espresso maker, with a clever design. Looks good on the counter, too. Milk frother is rubbish, though -- get a Bodum jug if you want froth.
Everything about this is a joy. Unpacking it on arrival, I was constantly admiring the really excellent and ingenious way it is presented. The ROK itself is a thing of beauty: well made and gleaming it adds something stylish and sculptural to the kitchen.
My first attempt was pretty good, I feel. I made a horrible mess everywhere, but I have told myself that this is all part of the ritual! The coffee itself was, although not perfect, far, far better than the vast majority I ever get served in coffee shops and cafes. This will get better when I get the hang of it.
I feel this is the start of a happy relationship.
