Rocket Cronometro Giotto Espresso Coffee Machine - Type V

The Cronometro Type V (2019) - HX (Heat Exchanger) is Rocket’s mid-range domestic machine, aimed at home users that want artisan quality coffee.  Handmade in Milan, these E61 manual lever machines combine stylish minimalist design and great temperature stability for the perfect espresso.

Rocket Cronometro Giotto Espresso Coffee Machine - Type V

This version is for the Giotto design, which is the inclusion of the diamond-shaped sides.

Please note: All Rocket's machines are hand-built in Milan and ordered direct from their factory to match your order precisely.

HX Design:

The Cronometro Type V is in the middle of their range. By that we mean that it has an HX design, which is essentially a single boiler with a clever tweak that can deliver separate/stable temperatures for both A) Brewing espresso, and B) Hot water & steam.

Its heat exchanger design features an optimised ‘boiler capacity to thermosiphon system ratio’. This technology results in fast heat-up time and stable, separate temperatures for both brew and steam, allowing you to brew espresso and steam milk simultaneously. 


The Cronometro V is the version with a vibration pump, as opposed to the R version which boasts a rotary pump.

Water feed options:

It runs from an internal reservoir only and can't be plumbed in to run from a mains water connection. It has microprocessor-controlled, automatic level controls on the boiler and freshwater reservoir.  This means water is automatically drawn from the reservoir into the boiler, plus it protects the boiler from burn out, should the supply of water run out.  The internal reservoir is easily accessed for refilling, just under the removable cup tray. It also comes with a number of accessories (see technical info below for more details).

Temperature control:

This new version also includes a PID that allows you to control your brew temperature to 1 degree C for espresso extraction.  The unit is located inside the drip tray to avoid detracting from the aesthetics of the machine.

Other key features include:

  • Height adjustable feet
  • Shot timer
  • Vibration pump
  • Pre-infusion
