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 new entry level Classe 5 is a replacement for the Epoca machines that Rancilio has been manufacturing for many years.
It is available in 1, 2 and 3-group models with, for the first time, the option of a 2-group compact, and ‘Tall’ models across the range. The 1-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 auto-matic 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 pro-gramming and easy updates.
