You're in control...
Wrap your hands around the polished aluminium handles. Feel the experience. You drive the finely engineered gearing that lowers the piston to generate the pressure to extract the coffee oils to create the perfect espresso. Designed by one of the UK's leading product innovators, there's over 10 years of 'know-how' built into every ROK. See it hands-on here.
No electricity, no pods...
There is no lock-in to expensive pods - you choose the coffee - based on two espressos a day you could save over £300* a year compared to buying Nespresso capsules - and you won't be binning 730g of aluminium**. Plus the ROK uses no electricity. Just add hot water and the power of your arms - so much more fun and involvement than just pressing a button on an electric machine. You can order it here.
Take your time, become a home barista...
Allow some time to master the ROK. It's not got a manufacturer's preset button - because you are the settings! There are so many variables to a perfect espresso from the freshness and fineness of the grind to maintaining temperature of the water. The ROK is like the finest pen in the world, but it relies on you being able to write! Experiment. Some people get crema right out of the box. Some don't. Once mastered you will be truly amazed at the results you can achieve. The ROK is the tool that helps you become the master craftsman.
...it's easy once you have the know-how.

THE HISTORY OF THE ROK ESPRESSO MAKER
It began in 2002...
With a vision to make the best espresso using the power of your hands. Back to the routes of espresso makers. It hit the market in 2004 as the Presso. In 2012 it became the ROK. Now 50,000 users later it's completely re-tooled and better than ever.
With a new alloy mix, reinforced plunger and more metal where it matters, we stand by ROK for 10 years. It's still providing owners with the visceral experience of making amazing coffee. It becomes part of their life - part of their daily or weekend ritual.
Keep it fresh...
Want great espresso? We have a few expert tips here. ROK espresso lovers are not in a hurry. They don't want to rush the experience. It's got to be done right. Let the world spin by. It's like putting on a vinyl record on the turntable. Setting up the arm. Checking the speed. Hearing the depth of sound that digital glosses over. The ROK is the antithesis of one button electric machines. You will fall in love with it.

Your ROK comes with a stainless steel milk frother. See how to get the best from it here. Every delicious latte or cappucino starts with a perfect espresso. Add the right mix of frothy milk to make your favourites.
