Rancilio Specialty is the fruit of the Rancilio R&D Department’s experience combined with the skills of a team of specialty coffee experts. This line of machines is designed to engage with the demanding environment of a quality-focused coffee bar by joining workhorse reliability with advanced control and a timeless aesthetic. Proprietary multi-boiler brewing technology gives each machine unparalleled temperature control and consistency, offering baristas the option of using temperature profiling at the brewing stage. The Rancilio Specialty line also features variable steam pressure with 4 presets, adjustable drip tray height, and records the parameters of the last 30 espresso extractions.
Egro NEXT is the new frontier in fully automatic coffee machines. Featuring stylish ergonomic design, the Egro NEXT is intuitive, easy to use and to clean. It guarantees a top quality in-cup result for all types of hot or cool coffee, milk and powder-based drinks. Egro NEXT has been designed mainly for use in hotels, fast-food outlets, convenience stores, service stations, cafes and self-service facilities.
The Ramp Up Road Tour 2019
Rancilio Specialty is hitting the road this summer with the newest espresso machine, the RS1. The series of events is called Ramp Up, and it is a barista-focused road tour that seeks to empower baristas by offering free, professional development classes and by elevating drink-making with a fun, skills-based competition: the Technical Throwdown.
We built the RS1 with baristas in mind, and with that a dedication to baristas in various communities around the world. We feel it is most important to not just act as a manufacturer but to create a platform that elevates, empowers, engages, and supports the coffee industry.
We had the opportunity to sponsor this year's Barista League in Helsingborg, Sweden! We also got to sit down with the founder, Steven Maloney and talk a bit about the event and the core values of the competition.
