ROKMAKER Hand-powered Espresso Machines

View all 10 Photos

Winner of the “Most Innovative Product Award” at the 2013 London Coffee Festival, the Classic ROKMAKER is a hand-powered espresso maker crafted from engine-grade aluminum. Designed by the London-based company ROK Kitchen Tools, the personal cafe essential is manual and portable. You don’t need outlets or bulky machinery to make good espresso; all it takes is a ROKMAKER and your own two hands.

With a body made of aluminum, the ROKMAKER is strong and lightweight at just over six pounds. The durable design holds up to wear and can be carried, so it’s a great item to bring along on a trip. With this tool, you can make your own espresso while traveling and, if you have a thermos, even when outdoors. Just add hot water and start tamping. If you’re old enough to drink coffee, you’re probably strong enough to do the job. Most adolescents and adults achieve a bar pressure average of 5-10, depending on upper body strength.

Sustainable and budget-friendly, the ROKMAKER saves electricity, waste, and money when compared with traditional espresso machines and Nespresso. The design also gives you more freedom. Suitable with any coffee brand, the ROKMAKER lets you play with the local or subscription coffees you have always wanted to try. Plus, the versatile tool can be used to make all of your favorite espresso drinks, from ristretti to lattes. All you have to do is read the recipe, buy a good espresso grind, and practice. Learning the feel of the ROKMAKER is easier than it looks; many users even achieve a thick crema on their first attempt.

A knight in shining armor, the ROKMAKER makes a great addition to your home coffee bar and a smart gift for college students and espresso-lovers of all ages. The ROKMAKER comes with a portafilter, a stainless steel milk frother, a splitter for crafting two single shots, a tamp and spoon, an attractive stainless steel travel tin with foam fittings, and a 10-year guarantee. Its base is fitted with rubber legs to prevent slipping and scratching, and the manual device is quiet, so you can make espresso everyday without disturbing the late sleepers in your life. Available through our store.
