ROK is a therefore venture project that we have developed from idea to production and distribution.

Originally launched as ‘Presso’, ROK Espresso maker is a manual, non-electric espresso maker which is made from polished, high quality aluminium.

The pressure required to make the espresso is achieved with the lowering of the lever arms. The process of lowering the arms traps air and forces water through the ground coffee at a high pressure.
All you need to do is bring some water to the boil, place coffee in the steel filter/portafilter, pour the boiling water into the chamber at the top, raise the arms to let the water filter through and lower the lever arms to brew your espresso.

Formerly known as the Presso, the ROK Espresso Coffee Maker has a similar design but with strengthened alloy formulation, increased thickness of top arms, a reinforced water chamber and comes with reusable embossed metal storage tin.
