Stylish by design and easy to operate, it has all the outstanding qualities of Rancilio coffee machines combining electronics with traditional hardware for higher performance. The machine body is now rust-proof, scratch-proof and wear-resistant for years of usage.
The Semi-Automatic control of this machine makes it extremely simple and reliable in all situations. The Epoca S is available plumbed and now in a 'tank' version with an independent water tank that allows it to be used without connection to the main water supply.
How the Rancilio Epoca S 2 Group Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine Works
- Semi-Automatic (S) - This version is what you might commonly find in your typical coffee shop, where time and water quantity are all controlled by the barista during extraction. No need to worry about pressure profiles, as these machines will take care of that for you at a standard 9 bars.
- Semi-Automatic Tank (ST) - This version has the same features as the Semi-Automatic but does not require a water source as the water tank is built into the unit.
- Automatic (E) - This version will take a lot of the guess work out of your extraction variables by setting water quantity profiles that will keep everything much more consistent across the board. This sort of machine is considered quite a bit easier to use.

Ask a Question
If you are looking to create a focused concept around espresso then you will definitely want a machine that is going to be 220v, but past that I would recommend calling or emailing our commercial department to help you specify the machine that is right for your specific location and concept. There is a place for a 110v machine too, but it would not be recommended as the machine that you are basing a large stream of revenue around as it would not be able to remain heat stable past that 50 drinks a day or 25 in a peak hour. Please let us know if we can assist you any further. You can also reach our commercial team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
