It's common in the espresso machine industry to compromise quality when you get to the less-expensive machines in the line. Not so with Rancilio. Even the Epoca two-group machines have the same boiler, heating system & group temperature stabilization systems as the top of the line, industry leading Rancilio Classe 9!
The Epoca S2 (Semi-Automatic) is the most simplified of Rancilio's 2-group commercial espresso machines. Plumbed-in, the S2 features single on/off pump activation switches for each group, innovative C-lever steam valves on either end, a hot water tap, drainage outlet & dual gauges (boiler & pump pressure).
Powered by a 4300 Watt element, the Epoca S2 is best-suited for medium-volume cafes, bistros, restaurants, banquet halls & professional roasters. The semi-automatic specification of the S2 lessens the price in a 2-group machine for businesses on a tighter budget.
