The Rancilio Group’s European tour, from Horecava Amsterdam to the Vienna Coffee Festival »
As we look forward to SIGEP Rimini, the first appointments of the year are Horecava in Amsterdam and the Vienna Coffee Festival.
For Rancilio Group, 2018 starts with a European tour whose full programme will take Rancilio coffee machines and Egro super automatic models from the North Sea coasts to those of the Romagna Riviera in Italy, via the banks of the Danube.

The first stop is in Amsterdam for Horecava 2018, which confirms its standing as an important forum for discovering the latest trends of the hospitality and catering industries on an ever evolving market, one that always anticipates the hottest novelties of the continent. In this same setting, on the booth of the Mocca d'Or distributor, the new Egro Next model is being presented, the fully automatic coffee machine which, right from the first day of its launch at Host Milano 2017, continues to captivate the interest of trade operators. An interest generated by its new functions along with integrated technologies of the latest generation.

The new dispensing group of Egro Next, available with brewing chambers of different capacities, in the 22g version, guarantees rapid and high quality delivery in the preparation of American-style coffee and Coffee Boxes over 2.7 litres. An ideal solution for take-away and self-service venues, which are highly successful throughout northern Europe. Another new feature of Egro Next is the Cooled Coffee Module. A solution developed for the preparation of all cold coffee-based beverages which, by drastically reducing the temperature of the coffee when brewed, is able to prevent ice-cubes from melting in the glass.

The new touch screen interface with HD monitor is based on the Android operating system. Built on an intuitive icon-based browser, it has demonstrated to all stand visitors how easy it is to operate the Egro Next machine. It is possible to prepare any type of beverage and to personalize the interface with a few taps and quick swipes.

At the end of the Horecava trade fair, Rancilio Group will fly direct to Austria for the Vienna Coffee Festival, scheduled to run from 12 to 14 January. While making its debut as an exhibitor, Rancilio Group will also be the official sponsor of all the competitive events pertaining to the SCA "Austria Barista Championship". The hopeful candidates will challenge each other in 5 activities – barista, latte art, coffee in good spirits, brewer, cuptaster – on Rancilio Classe 11 coffee machines endowed with Xcelsius technology for temperature profiling.
A Rancilio Classe 11 machine used for the finals – scheduled to take place on Sunday 14 January – will be signed by all finalists and, at the end of the competition, will be donated for charity.
At the Vienna Coffee Festival, the Rancilio Group "Coffee House" will exhibit the Rancilio branded traditional coffee machines with the high-end Classe 11 Xcelsius fleet, the Kryo dosing grinder and the complete lines of the medium range Classe 9 machine. Barista Tristan Rus will be in charge of the interactive laboratory "Extraction Lab" and will accompany visitors to the "Coffee House" to discover the secrets of a perfect brew, in between tasting sessions featuring ten different coffee blends.

When the curtain comes down on the Vienna Coffee Festival, Rancilio Group will get ready to travel to Rimini to welcome SIGEP visitors to its "Coffee House".
