Rocket Coffee Machines, Melbourne
Melbourne’s K Bean Coffee Machines does not sell Rocket coffee machines. Melbourne buyers will see the class-leading Profitec coffee machines when they visit my Melbourne coffee machine shop.
Profitec and Rocket coffee machines are at the high end, fighting it out for the crown. Profitec and Rocket are like oil and water so you find that it’s very rare to find a retailer selling both brands. I don’t know of any Rocket coffee machine shop in Melbourne that also sells Profitec coffee machines. It’s one or the other for us retailers.
I choose Profitec and you can see why by watching the Profitec Pro 700 in depth video below which shows the internals of a Profitec Pro 700 and all of it’s components.
Another way to see why I choose Profitec is to read my thoughts on the Profitec Pro 700 coffee machine v the Rocket R58 coffee machine by clicking here
Saeco Automatic Coffee Machines
As you know, K Bean is passionate about manual coffee machines. No automatic coffee machine can get close to a manual machine when it comes to performance, reliability and joy of use.
However, there are times when automatic bean to cup machines are requested for the home or for the office. I have selected a couple of semi-commercial automatic machines for just this case.
The semi-commercial Saeco machines are designed for office use but they are also great for home if you are looking for a a fully automatic coffee machine. They are bigger than appliance automatic coffee machines (eg, Jura, Breville, Sunbean) but they offer a huge step up in performance, build quality and reliability.

Macap manufactures a range of Italian coffee grinders, designed for commercial use. I don't generally recommend them for the home.

The Baratza Sette 270Wi, 270 and 30 AP are great value grinders that deliver exceptional grind quality and speed as well as neat and tidy dosing. With the Baratza Sette coffee grinder range, the outer burr rotates and the inner burr is fixed. Grind is fluffy and very tidy (low static) and grind retention is now a thing of the past as coffee passes straight through the grinder, vertically, directly into the espresso portafilter.
The Baratza Sette 30 AP represents great value as an entry level coffee grinder. The Baratza Sette 270 is there if you are looking for stepless adjustment. The Baratza Sette 270Wi has the added benefit of integrated scales for weight-based dosing.
