Designed with the Prosumer in mind, the sleek Rancilio Epoca model ST 1 Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine is the perfect combination of quality and performance and looks like a fine Italian sports car. The Rancilio Epoca ST 1 includes all of the benefits of a café semi-automatic, but with a built-in water tank for convenient home use. This commercial quality machine will please any coffee aficionado who is accustomed to paramount quality in the luxury of their own home.
The Rancilio Epoca ST 1 Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine features commercial quality components like a three-way solenoid valve for maximum heat retention and an oversized brass boiler with a heat exchanger and has plenty of power for steaming and frothing milk time after time.
The Rancilio Epoca ST1 comes with a single and double spout portafilter, a single and double shot filter basket, a measuring scoop, a plastic tamper and a detailed instruction manual.
Please note: Because the Rancilio Epoca ST 1 Espresso Machine is a commercial espresso machine, it cannot be returned. All sales of commercial and semi-commercial equipment are final. This machine ships by freight. For more information, please see our policies page.
The Rancilio Epoca ST1 features a large brass boiler, brass water lines, brass fittings and connections and brass chrome-plated porta filters that all combine for great brew-water temperature stabilization.
Solenoid valve - The Rancilio Epoca ST1 features a commercial quality three-way solenoid valve. This valve relieves the machine of water pressure, allowing you to brew again almost immediately. A three-way solenoid valve also removes more water from the spent coffee puck – making it easier to empty the portafilter.
Water Filter - Clean water is essential for making great espresso and Rancilio includes an in-tank water filter for providing water as clean as possible for brewing and dispensing. It also helps to inhibit scale build-up. The plastic 2 liter water reservoir is accessed through a trap-door on the top rear of the cup-warming tray and can be filled by pouring directly into the reservoir.
Body Beautiful - The shape, fit and finish of the Rancilio Epoca ST1 body shell is extraordinary for any type of machine. It reflects superb Italian style and craftsmanship and is rust-proof, scratch-proof and wear resistant to provide years of service and constant great looks.
Hot Water Dispenser - In addition to steaming and frothing, the Rancilio Epoca ST1 includes a separate spout and control knob for dispensing hot water for tea, hot chocolate or café Americanos. Just turn the knob above the hot-water spout and hot water is poured into your waiting cup.
Boiler Pressure Gauge - You will know when your machine is ready by observing the visible gauge on the front which displays the boiler pressure. There are also 2 indicator lamps near the on-off switch, one indicates that there is sufficient water in the reservoir to operate and the other indicates a low water condition.
The Rancilio ST-1 comes with a full kit of components and accessories
to get you up and running quickly.
If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!

In short…Epoca is what Rancilio advertises it to be: A commercial grade heat exchanger style machine which can be used at home. Warmup: Boiler reaches factory set boiler pressure of ~15 psig (adjustable) within 15 minutes of turning on. Before pulling a shot, I leave the portafilter in the group head for another 15 minutes, then pull one blank shot. After this the machines ready to go. This 30 minute warmup cycle isn't a problem with me since I turn it on when I wake up and it heats up while preparing for work. Water temperature stability: Stable. The boiler is factory set (user adjustable) to cycle on when the boiler pressure drops to ~12 psig and cycle off when it reaches ~15 psig. This heating cycle is ~10 seconds. These on/off setpoints translate to boiler steam/water temperatures of ~243 F and ~250 F & illustrate the consistent temperature at the heat exchanger thru which the expresso water gets pumps through before passing through the portafilter. Frothing: It has plenty of frothing power. The latest version of Epoca has the “Clever” steam switch – turn the “Clever” counter clockwise 1/4 of a turn and it locks the steam valve at 100% open. If you prefer to vary the steam flow while frothing just turn the “Clever” clockwise (downward) and you can manually control steam flow from 0% up to 100%.

My Epoca ST 1, purchased a couple of months ago stopped working today. Circuit checks out ok, and no reponse to the switches, no response on the green lights, nada. No previous odd behavior, just today's non-functioning.
Well, our machine has worked fine since it first arrived. Now, last couple of days it have been loosing pressure suddenly and everything seems right but the fact it get loose that often is starting to scare us all. There is enough water at the tank, it is normally plugged and it gets rinsed often. What can be happening? Because there is no weird noise coming ot of it. After we run some water from the group head the pressure starts to build up until it falls once again, and keeps doing it
I have pressure making espressos but when we backwash the machine will stop making noise. It seems like there is not enough pressure for it to backwash the water back into the machine. Everything else appears to be working.
Thank you for your time, Val
I'm having pressure problems with my new machine generally and it never seems to quite reach critical mass (pressure wise) and consequently doesn't ever quite recover. We've only just used it a couple of times and the pressure issue was from the beginning. We have another machine (exact same) and it doesn't behave this way. Thank you for your help.
