Craftsmanship, quality and exclusivity! These are the features that make the RUGGERO a truly spectacular espresso machine.
The RUGGERO was designed by John Slade in 2005 as a tribute to his father in law, Henry Rogers.
Henry, known to his clients as Rodg, made espresso machines his life and livelihood. He had a long history in the coffee industry as he was one of the first espresso service technicians in Melbourne. Henry introduced John into the industry and shared his wealth of knowledge of espresso machines. John, in turn, shared his passion with his son, Paul, who today is the proud owner of Disave Espresso Equipment Suppliers. The RUGGERO was born from the nickname Rodg that is of Italian origin and comes from the name Roger
Traditional E61 lever group head which weighs 4.2Kg is made completely of brass and has been chrome plated.
Dual boiler system of which each is 1500ml in capacity and has a large 2000watt element in each boiler, the largest boiler capacity to element wattage in its class. What does this mean? Steam, steam, steam, and a quick heat up time! Both boilers are insulated to help reduce heat loss.
Boiler construction is of copper and brass which has been proven for its reliability, strength and durability.
One boiler is for producing steam, hot water and to pre-heat the water entering the brew boiler via a heat exchanger so as to keep the brew boiler temp stable. This boiler (steam boiler) is controlled by an adjustable pressure stat that can be adjusted up to 1.4 bar steam pressure for more steam velocity. (Machine comes set at 1 – 1.1 bar)
The brew boiler is dedicated for maintaining the perfect temp of water for the extraction of coffee via the group head. It does this with its PID temp controller which can be set very easily to the desired extraction temp for the blend of coffee you are using. The PID controller minimizes the temp swing by pulsing the brew boiler element to maintain the set temperature.
The machine comes standard with a vibrating pump and is fitted with a pump pressure regulator which is adjustable externally to maximize your control over the extraction pressure. (Comes set at 12bar)
Two taps – one for hot water to make tea and one for steam, which has a no burn steam arm. The body is made of 2mm thick stainless steel for strength.
Large drip tray so you don’t have to empty it all the time.
The water reservoir has a capacity of 2750mls. Steam pressure gauge and pump pressure gauge.
Custom hand built machine to order, your color, your sign. Comes standard with the traditional Crema Cafe light box sign – color must be selected when ordered. Body can be painted in any automotive paint color available in Australia or design something yourself and we will make it happen.
