XCELSIUS the taste revolution
The Xcelsius system enables the temperature of the brew water for the coffee to be set dynamically, with an increase or decrease of up to 5°C (9°F) during the 25-30 seconds it takes for each individual delivery. This function allows the particular aromatic characteristics of each individual blend to be brought out for the perfect cup of coffee.
The Timeless Elegance of the Lever
Classe 9RE oozes vintage appeal, its mechanical parts and levers driving the totally manual action capture the hearts of all those nostalgic for those heady days when coffee was made by hand, a harmonious ritual performed with passion by the barista whose unique skills are now once again given free rein to find their natural expression in impeccable espresso.
Sculpted by Light
The steel sides of Classe 9 are marked by a blade of light that runs along the front edge.
The reflections and glare on the steel create an atmosphere of great effect, making this a certain eye-catcher in every type of location.
Form and Matter
The combination of materials used to build Classe 9 provides a beautiful sense of balance.
The upper control panel is made from a new, sturdy scratchproof polymer that frames the controls, and makes them seem to float over the machine housing.
The base and side covers in steel and satinised aluminium are modelled with great attention to detail and ergonomics.
Form and function inextricably come together to bring a result of the utmost quality.
Soft Touch and Functional Leads
The excellent ergonomics of Classe 9 are perfectly reflected in the innovative Soft Touch control panel with quick-response buttons and 3-colour operating lights that indicate that the various functions are running. The size of the buttons and clear graphics assist baristas in their daily activities, simplifying and easing their workload.
The new C-Lever steam valve with a special control knob and ergonomic design is complete with open-stay and open-close functions. Ease of use for optimum steam system performance.
Quality in the Details
The polymer side bumpers provide strength and ease of use.
The work area is illuminated by an array of directional lights that give the barista greater control over all phases of preparation, and valuable assistance in maintenance and cleaning.
Rancilio has designed Classe 9 TALL for all coffee-based beverages that require large cups/glasses. The work surface is set at a lower level than on the standard model, allowing glasses up to 5.7 inch (14.5 cm) in height to be used. The TALL model can also be used to dispense Italian espresso, thanks to the removable plate that allows cups to be placed the correct distance from the group.
