Product Details

ROK specialises in making non-electric espresso makers and tools that make espresso just as well as their electric counterparts. This makes their tools more compact and less noisy, too. With the EspressoGC Explorer Edition, ROK has retained the timeless classic design of the original and re-engineered the pressure chamber using BPA-free glass composites to deliver twice the performance. Moreover, the ExpressoGC Explorer edition includes extra features that make it suitable for every level of expresso expertise, including a standalone milk frother for making perfect cappuccinos and lattes. Most distinctly, it includes a unique SmartShot filter – a pressurised chamber that clips into the Standard Portafilter to create the perfect conditions for crema-topped espresso, even if you use coarsely ground or not-the-best-quality beans. Every machine includes:

  • Standard Portafilter
  • Naked (Bottomless) Portafilter
  • SmartShot Basket
  • Manual Milk Frother
  • Dosing Funnel (to avoid mess when transferring ground coffee into portafilter)
  • Coffee spoon (which doubles as a tamper)
  • Clip-on double adapter
  • Competition Filter Screen
  • Full instructions

Why we love it

'The Explorer Edition has a wide range of tools that encourage experimentation. It’s excellent for households where everyone has different preferences for how they like their coffee.'
