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.
The new Egro Next is a future-proof super-automatic espresso machine ideal for any self-service or staff-operated cafe concept. The Next technology features an app-controlled user interface offering familiar controls and gestures found in smartphones and tablets. The ability to quickly adapt to our rapidly changing world is the driving force behind the app-controlled interface. The screen of the Next can also be placed on a kiosk or a countertop and paired with the machine via Bluetooth for compliance with ADA requirements. The Next features connectivity with the Egro Cloud, a service to track and report live drink data and the machine’s operational status.
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.
