Classe 9 is the latest traditional espresso machine from Rancilio. It has a futuristic design packed with character and sleek yet technological lines. Sophisticated materials give this prestigious machine an air of importance with the body and external components made exclusively from stainless steel and aluminium.When Rancilio LAB was designing the Classe 9, it focused on exploring new ergonomic and functional design features and then naturally combined them with an elegant and refined look.
One feature that immediately catches the eye is the ergonomic lighting in the work area that makes the barista's work even easier and facilitates cleaning and maintenance. Stunning blue LED lights on the steel side panels accentuate the machine's lines and design, lending the Classe 9 an elegantly dynamic yet bold and trendy look. One of the most outstanding main functional features is the soft-touch button control. It maximises the buttons' ergonomic design to make starting and stopping the machine while dispensing is extremely effortless and easy. Classe 9 is available in automatic and semiautomatic versions with 2, 3 and 4 groups.
The more sophisticated version of the Classe 9 with USB technology comes with advanced electronics and an alphanumeric display for managing the machine?s main settings and the 4-Tea hot water dispensing programme with programmable time-controlled dosing. Classe 9 offers all the latest features from Rancilio LAB and can be fitted with different milk systems: iSteam, YouSteam and C-Lever.
Xcelsius is an advanced temperature controlled brewing technology jointly developed by Rancilio LAB and the prestigious Polytechnic University in Turin, Italy. So advanced it is covered by 2 world patents. The XCelsius system enables the temperature of the brew water for the espresso to be set dynamically, with an increase or decrease of up to 5°C (9° F) during the brew cycle. Each group head operates independently of each other and can have completely different profiling temperatures - profiling up, down or constant temp. The XCelsius system guarantees excellent temperature stability in each group head in accordance with the standards of the World Coffee Events 2011 (the organization that runs the World Barista Competition WBC). With a push of a button on the group you can disable the group head during slow periods in order to conserve energy. Restore it to the profiled temperature in less than 5 minutes.
