The Rancilio and Egro LAB departments are manned by a close-knit team who, between them, have all the necessary technical skills to cover the engineering aspects of the professional coffee machine industry. Two excellent organizations engaged in designing and testing the most effective solutions to our customers' global needs.

We of Rancilio Group strongly believe that every grain of coffee has its own particular characteristics, making each mono origin or blended coffee special and unique.

In order to achieve an unmistakable flavour and style, we work with enthusiasm and meticulous attention to detail. Our machines enable operators to serve beverages with an unquestionably high cup quality and to achieve results of the highest standards.

Essential characteristics such as the colour of the froth and its texture, the pleasure and complexity of its aroma and the exquisite taste of coffee are held to be factors of the vital importance throughout all phases of analysis and design.


We have developed telemetry and connectivity systems which are extremely efficient and easy to use.  

They provide immediate and truly intuitive connection with the support of a laptop, PC, tablet or Smartphone.

Yet another important step in evolving towards enhanced interaction with the coffee machine, with the ultimate aim of turning it into a winning ally with which to implement an immediate and functional dialogue.

We are firmly convinced that the new IT and communication technologies represent an indispensable factor for market advancement and high class product differentiation.
