Xcelsius is the newest patented temperature control technology from the Rancilio LAB. The key features of the system are the unique water
system with double-phase heating, the architecture of the brew group and
innovative control electronics.
The system is protected by 2 international patents and has been
developed in conjunction with the prestigious Polytechnic in Turin,
which is one of Europe's leading universities.Rancilio has dedicated
over 3 years to developing this system with a special team of designers
in the R&D division: this is clearly a very important and strategic
project for the company.
With Xcelsius you can easily adjust and guarantee the stability and the
precision of the coffee brewing temperature in any situation. Xcelsius
features elements that are profoundly innovative and different: in fact,
Xcelsius has been developed to be flexible and dynamic. This is
something completely new and means that is it possible to extract coffee
and dynamically change the temperature of the water DURING the
extraction process, which is known as TEMPERATURE PROFILING.
This a new frontier for coffee machines, and enables us to explore
completely new sensorial possibilities: the temperature of the water
used when extracting coffee is one of the main parameters that
influences the result in the cup in terms of taste, so it follows that
if you vary the temperature in a controlled manner during extraction you
can enhance or conceal the various aromas of an individual blend of
