Features taken directly from our commercial espresso machine range give the Cronometro machines superior technology that is normally only found in full sized commercial espresso machines.
Now with digital shot timer, PID temperature control, insulated boilers and the Rocket Espresso 9 mm boiler end plates, stability and temperature control is further enhanced.
The use of a rotary pump ensures quiet yet robust pump performance and allows the user to have the machine draw water from the internal machine reservoir or alternatively connect the machine directly to the water supply.
The Cronometro machines are offered in two different body styles, the Giotto or the Mozzafiato.
Rocket was one of the first manufacturers to incorporate a PID into their heat exchangers, though it has now become an industry standard on high-end HXs, and it just goes to show their commitment to innovation. The PID is hidden behind the drip tray so as not to distract from the machine’s intricate design, and it can be adjusted across four settings to accommodate different roast styles.
They’re also one of only a handful of manufacturers to make adjustments to the E61 group, which circulates water from the boiler through the group to aid in temperature stability and is a staple on most prosumer machines. Rocket integrated a dual pre-infusion system, consisting of a mechanical working piston which works progressively within a static pre-infusion chamber for fully saturated, crema-rich extractions.
The PID controller keeps temperature stable to the degree, and, once combined with this thoughtfully redesigned group, the Giotto Cronometro R is equipped to deliver consistent shots. Though it’s a small change, we’re a big fan of the blackened gauges on the Cronometro R version, and think it adds to our impression that this is a lean, mean, brewing machine.
Internally, similar to the Cronometro V, the Giotto Cronometro R houses a large 1.8 L copper boiler and 1200 watt heating element, and integrated sensors monitor the boiler and reservoir levels for low volumes, alerting you and, if necessary, shutting off automatically so as not to let the boiler run dry. Of course, plumbing the machine in eliminates this problem altogether, and allows you to use an inline filtration system to purify water to aid in espresso taste and machine longevity. The Cronometro R also features the same height adjustable feet and no-burn steam wands as it’s counterpart.
