Rocket Espresso Milano is responsible for this caffeinated gift from the gods - the Rocket Porta Via - the world's first truly portable espresso machine.
Arriving in a hard-shell carry case, ready for your car boot, camping table or garage bench, the Rocket Porta Via incorporates Rocket's commercial-grade nous into a professional and compact package that's able to brew coffee and steam milk simultaneously.
Weighing in at around 29kg, the case includes foam-padded slots for a pair of ceramic cups and saucers as well as a tamper, a professional-grade portafilter, jug and an external water reservoir. Once the Porta Via is plugged in and the cylindrical water reservoir is attached, barista-quality crema is a mere 10 minutes away. The unit can also be safely packed and carried away immediately after, even if still warm. Winning.
