Rapha Espresso Machine by Rocket Espresso Milano

Rapha has teamed up with the likes of Rocket Espresso Milano to produce a limited edition (200 in total) Giotto espresso machine.  The Giotto is a top of line espresso machine that won’t disappoint.

The machine is constructed out of stainless steel, pure copper (Cu. 99.9%), and lead free brass.  It really is a thing of beauty.  The Rapha H Van silhouette graphic and cycle club logo are engraved on the machine, as well as the phrase “Oggi Ci Daremo Una Botta.”  Translated it means, “We’ll give ourselves a kick up the backside today.”

As one would guess, it doesn’t come cheap.  The machine runs €1,700 or roughly $2450 for those of us stateside.

  1. I used a Giotto for a number of years. It was worth every penny. Only replaced it for a true commercial 1 group. Mmmmm…espresso.
