London based coffee roaster and tea blender, The Drury Tea & Coffee Company, has introduced the all-new Classe 7 espresso machine, the most recent addition to the portfolio of Italian manufacturer, Rancilio. This innovative new machine incorporates the very latest technology and represents the cutting edge in modern machine design. With over 80 years’ experience in the UK coffee trade, Drury, has worked closely with Milan-based Rancilio for practically 30 years.
Rancilio Classe 7
Available in two or three group standard and tall specifications, the Classe 7 is well suited to the rigours of the high street coffee shop trade, but is equally at home in hotels or busy bars. What is immediately obvious is the modern good looks and stylish finish of the machine, which is manufactured from stainless steel and finished in a choice of black or white side panels.
Its good looks belie a host of technological features that represent the cutting edge of espresso technology. It has a back-lit digital display with full diagnostics; programmable on/off function; ergonomic push button operational panel and, uniquely, as standard for the UK market, Rancilio’s patented ‘C’ lever steam operation, which has been designed to reduce repetitive strain injury.
Incorporated into this model is an automatic group head cleaning system; a fully insulated boiler to preserve energy; an independent cup warmer and cool touch steam arms. Rancilio’s patented iSteam is now available for the first time as an option on the Classe 7. This is a proven auto frother that produces a rich creamy foam for cappuccinos and lattes, which is comparable with manually textured milk. In fact, the foam is so good, it can even support latte art.
The all-new Classe 7 has been chosen by Drury to complement its extensive range of over 17 different espresso coffee beans. The machine carries a full year’s parts and labour warranty and customers regularly purchasing Drury coffee qualify for free initial and ongoing barista training from the Company’s dedicated barista training department either on site or at Drury’s purpose-built facility in Woolwich, south-east London.
List prices for the Classe 7 start at £5140 for the standard two-group machine. The optional iSteam auto frother costs £450.
