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.
