Coffee roaster and tea blender The Drury Tea & Coffee Company has announced the launch of a new entry-level espresso machine from Rancilio, the Classe 5.
The Classe 5 is a replacement for the Epoca machines that Rancilio has been manufacturing for many years. It is available in one-, two- and three-group models with, for the first time, the option of a two-group compact, and Tall models across the range.
The one-group machine can be specified with an optional water tank for installations where plumbing is not readily available.
Unlike its predecessor, the new Classe 5 has an all-metal chassis with a stainless steel finish and a choice of black or white side panels.
Also new is a fully automatic self-cleaning function, Rancilio’s ’Easy Clean’. This takes the backache out of end-of-service cleaning by automatically back flushing the group heads.
The UK specification on the Classe 5 includes, as standard, Rancilio’s patented ergonomic quarter turn ’C’ levers, which operate the steam wands. This feature takes the effort out of steaming milk and avoids the risk of repetitive strain injury.
The Classe 5 features all new electronics and it has a USB interface for programming and easy updates.
