    Rocket Home Machines Work Flow and capacity

    hi and thank you for your time in advance

    if you have a rocket machine like R58 or R60v ( or something in this range ) i want to know how much work flow can the machine take during a day , i'm fascinated by the look and brewing capability of rocket machines and am inclined to buy one , i have a choice to use it in one of these 3 places , so i want to know which is more in line with the machine's capacity and work flow , first place is my office which due to nature of the work there ( it is a writing/theater production office ) coffee is a necessity , we haven't had a espresso machine there yet , but i believe that at around 20 to 30 cups of espresso in a day will go on a busy day , but about 10 on a average day .
    second place that i can use is for my low volume coffee shop , not so much as an commercial machine but rather than for a machine that is going to be used exclusively for espresso ( only bland espresso and not any espresso based drinks ) my reasoning is that other pressure profiling machines are way more expensive , and we won't have more then 5 or 6 costumer for espresso only ( and that's on a good day ) but i like to give them the best espresso experience that they can have , and as i think you'll agree too , pressure profiling is the way to go on that front .
    and finally that i use them as are intended in my home , which is an option , but i got a Breville dual boiler , that my wife is used to using it, and i don't think the reasoning of " i liked the looks better" will go over as well as i like to
    any way if there is anything about these machines work flow and capacity that suggest that i can use them for any or all these places , please let me know . also any other thoughts and suggestions that you might have will be appreciated too .
    thank you

    I have a first-gen Rocket 58 at my shop / Rocket Apartmento at home - both machines are great. The 58 is a big step up with the double boilers. Perfect extractions when paired with a nice grinder. I think the pressure profiling would be nice for the hobbyist/enthusiast but a waste of money on most people. In fact, it may cause more confusion to many that others. It really depends on if you're driving the espresso machine or the general 'office worker' is using it.

    thank you , that was on the back of my thought too . what kinda leaned me to r60v was that you can set it up with 3 different profiles and then let the machine do it's thing , which meant i can program a triditional nine bar for one of them so other can use it , and have 2 other to play with different coffees , but i have to agree that it doesn't make much financial sense
    you mentioned you got r58 at your shop ?! so you use it in a commercial setting ?! if so , how is it and how many shots per day do you take out of it ?! can i support the heavy day work flow that i mentioned ( about 25cup per day ) ?

    Its in a commercial environment but no a cafe - its my 'lab' machine so it doesn't get a ton of duty cycles. Most espresso manufacturers will have a duty cycle / estimated for use..
