Rocket’s most unique espresso machine, the Porta Via, is being touted as the world’s first truly portable espresso machine. The name, Italian for “take away,” describes its unusual ability to be packed up in a rugged carrier, similar to a musician’s road case, and transported from place to place. The Porta Via doesn’t skimp on quality components, either. Rocket equipped this unique machine with a 40 oz heat exchange boiler and traditional E61 group, which continuously syphons water from the boiler through the group and back, leading to serious temperature stability while brewing.
The components are the same as you’d expect to find in any prosumer machine, including: an E61 group head, Ulka vibration pump, pressure gauge, as well as a commercial portafilter and wand. Plus, Rocket’s specially designed thermosyphon two-boiler system allows for simultaneous brewing and steaming. For added stability, the boiler temperature is regulated by an internal PID to ensure stability.
The machine is on the heavier side at just over 65 pounds, since Rocket truly wanted to provide a high-quality portable espresso machine, and, such a machine requires a bit of heft. The Porta Via is perfect for those that simply can’t sacrifice quality espresso on the go. It’s perfect for a second home or light entertaining at a dinner party. Plus, it’s a serious upgrade to any hotel room, or camp site with a power supply, perhaps more accurately called a “glamp” site. Directly after use, the machine can be packed up and whisked away to the next exciting locale, even if it’s still warm.
With its robust road case design, the Porta Via is designed to travel. Never settle for subpar espresso on the road again with this portable, prosumer espresso machine.
To use, it’s simply a matter of removing the case, putting aside the accessory tray, sliding the drip tray into place, securing the portafilter, screwing the reservoir into the top, filling it up, and, in ten short minutes, it’s ready to brew and steam into the included pair of porcelain cups.
Rocket’s unique take on a heat-exchange boiler utilizes a unique two chambered boiler with a 0.5 L brew boiler and 0.8 L steam boiler, which are usable simultaneously. This system is extremely temperature stable thanks to a PID, and heats the Porta Via up to ready-to-brew temperature in a swift ten minutes.
The E61 Brew Group ensures temperature stability during brewing by constantly circulating hot water between the brew boiler and brew group. The Porta Via comes with a commercial portafilter.
