ROK Espresso Maker - Most Sustainable Award

ROK Espresso Maker - Most Sustainable Award

The ROK Espresso Maker has received the 2019 Buy Me Once Excellence Award for Most Sustainable. Part of a more than 10-year commitment to be the Clean Green Espresso Machine.

https://uk.buymeonce.com/pages/buymeonce-excellence-awards

Designed to be the most eco-friendly espresso maker on the market, ROK have created the perfect alternative to coffee makers that require disposable capsules, pods and filters. By using only kinetic energy to power it, the Presso cuts down your waste and provides a smooth and easy extraction. Its mechanical nature and solid design means that planned obsolescence is not on the cards and this item can go on doing its job indefinitely.

ROK harder with your ROK Espresso Maker Revival Kit

ROK harder with your ROK Espresso Maker Revival Kit

They like their hands-on, non-electric coffee making machines in Indonesia – especially the ROK Presso Espresso Maker. And when they see room for improvement, they go right ahead and do whatever is needed. So welcome to the ROK Espresso Maker Revival Kit from Indo manufacturer Someday Somehow.

It replaces the plastic cylinder with an all-metal one, made of dural aluminium, for extra strength and reliability. Also new is the Teflon stainless steel plunger, a silicone O ring, hex spline and washer adjustment ring.

The tweaks take the hand-powered electricity free machine from perfect to perfecter … to bring you that cup of pure pleasure you have come to expect from ROK equipment.

What's your favourite kit to make espresso when you're away from home?

What's your favourite kit to make espresso when you're away from home?

When I posted this question on Reddit a month or so ago, I had no idea what my first post on Reddit would result in. If you are not familiar with Reddit, click the link below. I used the embed code bit so I hope it works. Firstly, a big thank you to the Coffee and Espresso community on Reddit for providing so many great bits of gear to make coffee and particularly espresso on the road. An extra thanks to a fellow Canadian who posted the Oomph as his go-to away-from-home coffee maker.  What is this oomph thing? I did a search and could not find it so I asked again and got a link. Which then started a chain of events that has culminated today in me having a go at making a coffee with the oomph. Wow. Love at first sight, touch and taste.  Your favourite gear to make espresso when you are away from home? from espresso

Picture yourself drinking beautiful fresh coffee anywhere.

Renew Fest 2017 - People Powered Espresso

Renew Fest 2017 - People Powered Espresso

People Powered Espresso supporting the 2017 Renew Fest in Mullumbimby
May 6 and May 7.

Getting your ”get up and go” without creating a yeti-sized carbon footprint is the essence of what we’re all about at Espresso Unplugged.

We love getting our hands into the soil, growing stuff and feeding our souls. And we love finding and creating products that are solid, built to last and easy to repair (when they eventually wear out).

If you drill down into the things that we think really matter, protecting the planet is at the top of the list - followed closely by helping people craft food and drink that is the closest to what nature (nurtured by humans) intended, with the least possible machine-made intervention.

When you’ve gone to the effort of sourcing Fair Trade, sustainably grown coffee beans, and you buy them fresh, locally roasted and ready to grind, we think it makes sense to grind and brew them in equipment that gives you the best experience and results – while looking after the planet.

People-powered grinders and coffee makers are perfect for ‘off the grid’ lifestyles, or low energy consumption homes from tiny houses to house trucks or yurts. No plugs required.

If you’re drinking coffee for health reasons (because yes, coffee is good for men’s health in particular) or ‘super-powering your day’ reasons, we highly recommend you drink the best quality coffee you can.

Investing in products that give you more control and that have a long life is one more step towards contributing towards a sustainable future.

We don’t ever want to see the products we sell find their way to landfill. And it might be old-fashioned, but we believe in repairing worn parts, and giving every unplugged product the longest life possible.

We look forward to sharing our passion for the unplugged life with you at Renew Fest 2017.

Can I take a ROK Espresso Maker Camping?

Can I take a ROK Espresso Maker Camping?

We just got this great inquiry on our website. Thought I would answer right away and have it on our blog for others to benefit from. Our answers are below. 

Hi there. I am interested in purchasing a ROK Espresso Maker. I have a caravan and we go away camping a lot in the winter months. I was just wanting to know if you could answer a few questions for me, please?

1) Is it quick and easy to use?

Both quick and easy. There is a learning curve but after cranking out a dozen double shots you will be able to make your coffee camping with ease. Getting the water boiled will take the most time.

2) Would it be okay to take it camping?

Take a ROK on the Wild Side. The ROK Espresso Maker loves being off-grid in the bush, take it whereever you go. There are now smaller manual espresso makers but the ROK will be the talk of the campsite.

3) Does it require electricity as sometimes we go to (unpowered sites)?

No cords attached to anything we sell. Or strings attached. We are a 'what you see is what you get' family-run business.

4) What do you get in the ROK Espresso Kit, and how much do they cost?

$229 and you get the Espresso Maker, Milk Frother, Portafilter, and Double Spout Splitter.

5) I'm going away on a camping road trip in a couple of weeks, if I ordered one now how long would it take for it to arrive to me in Laidley Qld, 4341?

Allow 3 working days from placing your order.

I'm so sorry for the questions overload. I just want to make sure I am happy with my purchase.

Not a problem. We are in the business of keeping people happy and caffeinated.

Have a wonderful day!

🌼🌻
