What makes it Special?
In short, RS1 is a multi-boiler espresso machine available in 2 or 3 groups with automatic dosing, Advanced Temperature Profiling technology, pre-infusion and post-infusion.
- SCA certified espresso machine
Rancilio Specialty RS1 passed the rigorous Specialty Coffee Association testing standards and is recognised as a SCA Certified Espresso Machine
- 4.3″ touchscreen and grouphead with dedicated display
- Multi-boiler system
Each stainless steel group contains a micro-boiler and two heating elements. As well as keeping the temperatures of both the water and the group stable, the multi-boiler system improves the thermal performance of the machine, even when simultaneously brewing espresso and steaming milk, and allows different temperatures to be set for each group head.
- Advanced temperature profiling
Thanks to Advanced Temperature Profiling technology, baristas can increase or decrease the temperature of the water dispensed during espresso extraction by up to 5°C (9°F). By accurately controlling the temperature profile of the espresso extraction, baristas are given a precise tool to unlock the flavour potential of each single-origin coffee or blend. By adjusting the temperature, variable results can be achieved in terms of sweetness, acidity, body, bitterness and astringency.
- Pre-Infusion And Post-Infusion
The barista can vary the water pressure both in the initial stage (pre-infusion) and in the final stage (post-infusion) of the extraction process, choosing between mains pressure or pump pressure, and adjust the duration of both stages. By using low-pressure water from the mains, the barista can achieve more consistent extractions, reducing the risk of channelling and better preserving soluble substances and aromas which, with high-pressure over-extraction, may not make it into the cup.
- Variable steam lever
Steam lever with a “Purge” function and two positions for steam delivery, each adjustable to different powers: perfect for switching between various jug sizes and different types of milk.
- Tech-friendly design with eco mode
Easy access to pump adjustment and internal components, arranged to speed up maintenance operations. Insulated steam boiler with programmable water renewal and low power and eco mode.
- Wood Kit (optional)
Wooden handle portafilters and wooden steam lever handles are available as optional for RS1 and RS1 Black.
