Features & Functionality of the Rancilio Epoca E 1 Group Automatic Espresso Machine

  • Helpful Gauges: Discernible boiler pressure and water level gauges let you know if your machine is operating at optimal levels.
  • Cup Warmer: Ample space is available on top of the Epoca E for warming multiple cups or shot glasses.
  • Brew with Pods: Skip the grinding and go straight for the pods! A pod adapter can be purchased if you prefer to brew sans grinds.
  • C-Lever: Turn this ergonomic steam knob up for full and open steaming or down for a more controlled frothing experience.
  • Workable Space: Rancilio machines offer additional work space on the drip tray which they call a Grid System. This flat surface makes it easier to keep cups steady and remove for an easy clean-up after a long hard day of brewing.

what is the difference between the Rancilio Epoca S1 and E1?
Phil F on Jun 13, 2016
Best Answer: The S1 is semi-automatic, you'll be pulling all of the shots yourself. The E1 features electronic programmability, so you'll be able to set how long you want the shot to pull.

Hi, I'm confused.... For all the Epoca 1 group models, SCG says the daily capacity is 30 drinks a day. However, I heard in a SCG video a while back that it has a 30 drink capacity PER HOUR. What gives? That's a big difference. Which one is it?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2014
Best Answer: I am sorry that our recommendations may offer different drink limitations! There are different models of the Epoca, which may account for some inconsistencies in our drink numbers. We recommend only 30 drinks a day for the Epoca ST (spread out over a day and not in a row), and normally we say 50-60 a day for the E1 and S1. The Epoca E1 and S1 can usually handle 30 in a PEAK hour, but should still only be used for around 50-60 a day maximum. If you have further questions please give us a call to speak with commercial sales at 866-372-4734.

Love it!!Review by geancafari
I bought it for my own use at home and this is the perfect machine!! I just Love it! no complaints about it, it is kind of expensive though but it worth every penny... 100% recommended. And the coffee it make is simply delicious. I also bought the perfect companion for this which is the Rancilio Kryo 65 and it rocks, this is the grinder that this machine deserves.
