A shopper asked: What is a PID controller? What does it do and what does it look like? May 24, 2014

Teri KStaff: A PID is to adjust temperature to a specific degree and also keep it stable at that temperature. I would suggest reading the article from Kat at the link below for a bit more information regarding what a PID is, as well as checking out the video to see what it looks like.

CruzIan asked: OK I've had very good luck asking questions here so here goes... Any advice, suggestions appreciated. I'm looking to get set up with a grinder and machine for about $1000 but if I REALLY push it I could spend $1400 or so. I'd be doing 4-8 double shot lattes / week and an occasional espresso. I'm looking at the Crossland CC1 and a Vario grinder, a Silva and a Vario, or the Breville 900xl and Breville smart grinder (notice the drop(?) in grinder quality). I'm no expert, but I'm a very quick learner when it comes to things mechanical (I can be a perfectionist when it comes to things like this and enjoy the geek process). I like the build quality of the Silva but that's it's biggest draw for me. Should I be looking at other options like a Pasquini Livietta or Nuova Simonelli Oscar. I've mostly passed them up due to lack of a PID and price to some extent. Feb 7, 2014

Silvia proficiency coming along

The Silvia package is definitely fun to play with (I have used it at least once a day since I got it a couple of weeks ago), although I am seeing some things I would change about it. For example, the wait time between steaming and brewing is a little annoying, so in the future, might consider one with a heat exchanger. Also, the temperature surfing bit, while I am getting better at it, took a while to get used to. I would say the learning curve is steeper than some, but the shots turn out great as does the milk foam, when I get it right, which also seems to be hit or miss. The machine looks nice on the counter, and has a great reputation, so I think it will be a good investment.

I've been using this combo daily for 4 months now. Well worth the $$ and time spent getting it right. Dialing in the Preciso was easy after making the internal adjustment ( it arrived on the coarsest grind setting....road gravel ) Online step-by-step instructions made it an easy job. Silvia gets the shot done perfectly. I've found big differences in the coffee now... some espressos have a sweet finish that doesn't go off. Others more suited to to a different style of drinking. I did get a thermometer to work out frothing. think it calibrated my eyes to the job. now i can do perfect micro-foam without the cheat. espressos, breve's, cappacinos & my grandaughter's hot chocolate all come out fantastic.

Loving my new Rancilio Silva & Baratza but viewing videos is much easier than actually dialing in your unit. I love the videos, don't get me wrong, but either I'm a slow learner (took a pound of coffee to get the grind right) or somethings that look simple are actually slightly harder than they look. But I'm having a blast and yes, I'm getting great shots for latte's and cappos at the proper temp, time, dose size, fresh roast, etc but haven't hit that God shot yet

After quite a bit of shopping and hemming and hawing I chose the Rancilio Silvia as my entree into the world of the home barrista. It has been tricky to perfect my grinding and tamping, but the PID control has made the temp and timing worry free. Love the machine. Love the PID. Loved the package deal on the grinder. And loved the support (online and docs that came with the machine) provided by SCG. A worthwhile investment, you won't regret!

Absolutely love the latest addition to our kitchen. It has been fun learning to use both machines. I am disappointed with the quality control on the Baratza, but my issue is with the manufacturer, not Seattle Coffee Gear, they have been great. When we first used the Baratza, the timer feature did not work. I opened up the machine and found the timer to be in two pieces. It was an easy fix, but quit working altogether two weeks later. The grinder produces consistanly ground coffee and is very easy to use. They clearly put their money into the burrs rather than the timer.
The great coffee that this combo makes is worth the frustration. I'm not willing to give it up to send the grinder back for repairs.

Pros:
Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

Cons:
Noisy, Cheap timer on grinder

I was in between the Silvia and the CC1. I was leaning towards the CC1 even though (IMO) the Silvia was a better machine. I was looking for the "best bang for my buck," and the CC1 has a PID installed for the same price as a stock Silvia. Then I found this package, and it eliminated any price advantage of the CC1.

I couldn't find this specific package anywhere else at the price I paid. Either way, I'm glad I bought it here because SCG's customer service has been top notch.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Commercial Grade, Great Taste

Still getting used to this machine; the Silvia does take some practice; it is both art and skill. After a couple of weeks, my tamp is more consistent and I am developing a better 'dance' re: coordinating frothing with my shots. Overall, a great machine! I am absolutely satisfied with my choice. As far as the Vario grinder is concerned, well, it does a fantastic job. Once I "found" my setting, it never needs a tweek.

Pros:
Great Taste, Commercial Grade, Easy To Clean

Cons:
High learning curve
