Rancilio Specialty RS1 – the official espresso machine sponsor of the Golden Bean

Rancilio Specialty RS1 – the official espresso machine sponsor of the Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition and Conference, Australia/New Zealand.

The team at Golden Bean are excited to announce the Australian partnership with the Rancilio Group as the espresso equipment supplier for this year’s Golden Bean Roasters Competition and Conference.
Rancilio Group is no newcomer to Golden Bean, having been involved 3 years ago in the event and also being the North American partner since its introduction in 2016.

Rancilio Group will be supplying the new Rancilio Specialty RS1 machine for all espresso based drinks and will for the first time be introducing the fully automatic machine Egro NEXT Pure-Coffee for the Automatic Category, recently introduced into the competition this year.

Australian Area Manager – Paul O’Brien (pictured above), will be supporting Golden Bean with backup support for this year’s Golden Bean, keeping the espresso equipment dialed into Australia’s best coffee companies’ entries. Paul knows the brand well, having been involved in the past with the expansion of Rancilio Group back into the Australian marketplace. The new RS1 is one of the most technical machines in the market and is well on the way to making Rancilio Group one of the world’s leading machine companies again. The slick full stainless-steel body has curves in all the right places and matches in well with the new technology that has been introduced under the bonnet. The RS1 has the latest features, including advanced temperature profiling through the individual group boilers, precise temperature stability and variable steam pressure for perfect milk texturing.

The Golden Bean team has put the RS1 through its paces this year during tradeshows in Boston, New York City and Chicago. The RS1 handled big volumes of workload in short increments of time without losing any temperature stability. This is the perfect equipment required for the 2019 Golden Bean Competition where we are expecting close to 2000 coffee entries.

We are excited to be involved with Rancilio Group in this year’s Australia/New Zealand Golden Bean event and look forward
to creating a global consistency within the competition.
