Seattle Coffee Gear's Guide to Rocket Espresso DVD

You know how much we love Rocket Espresso's machines and we could think of no better way to show that love than to produce an entire DVD about it!

Developed as a visual user's manual, this comprehensive DVD covers tons of great information -- from setup to how-to guides to maintenance instructions to troubleshooting tips -- that you can watch at your own pace as needed.

We're including it with all new Rocket Espresso machine purchases, but if you've purchased a Rocket Espresso machine from us in the past and would like a copy of the DVD, we'll be more than happy to send it to you. Simply send us an email with your original SCG order number and your current mailing address, and we'll drop one in the mail to you.

Ask the Experts
Q. I need an internal part for my espresso machine; can I get it from you?

A. Funny you should ask, because now you can! We recently launched a new Parts section on our site, which allows you to easily select the specific internal part you need by using an exploded machine diagram (when available).

Beginning with a selection of Saeco machines, we will be regularly expanding our available parts to include as many of the manufacturers and machines that we sell as possible. If you don't see your machine there, you can also fill out a form to request more info from our parts manager on if/when parts will be available.

If you're technically savvy enough to diagnose your machine's major malfunction, determine which part will fix it and then install that part with no questions asked, then this will be an excellent resource for you. Check it out!
Seattle Coffee Gear TV
We're still settling into the new store so didn't have quite as much time to film as we would have liked. It's always something, eh?!
Featured Products
Explore the world of coffee, one bean at a time. We're offering a selection of Velton's favorite Single Origin beans, roasted to order so they'll arrive super fresh at your door. Current selections include Costa Rica Terrazu, Guatemala Huehuetenango & Ethiopian Sidamo Moredocofe.
And the froth stands alone! If you have a favorite coffee prep method that does not offer you easy (or great quality) milk frothing & steaming (and you want it), this stand alone frother from Capresso is a great solution. Smooth, silky results and easy to clean, too.
Can't think of the perfect gift for the java lover in your life? A tamper or a knock box or a grinder -- or all of them? Show them you care enough to know about their deep love for coffee while also giving them the flexibility to choose exactly what they need. Available via email or post.
