Features & Functionality of the Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine

  • Steaming/Hot Water: Featuring a commercial grade chrome-plated steam wand, the Rancilio Silvia quickly delivers plenty of steam for milk frothing and hot boiling water for your Americano or a cup of tea.
  • Brew Group: Inspired by Rancilio's professional espresso machines, this chrome-plated brass group ensures even heat and water distribution, resulting in highly consistent espresso extraction.
  • Pressure Release System: The commercial-grade pressure relief system utilizes a 3-way solenoid valve which makes for easier cleanup — either by reducing splatter from an inadvertently removed portafilter or by reducing post-brew drip, effecting a dried out coffee ground "puck."
  • 67 oz. Water Tank: The water reservoir is removable, making for easy regular care. You can fill it while operating or by taking it out and filling it from the sink.
  • 15 BAR Heavy Duty Pump: A powerful water pump will effectively force water through your coffee grounds and extract full flavor.
  • 12 oz. Brass Boiler and Three Thermostats: Brass evenly distributes heat, so this boiler will get up to temperature quickly and easily maintain it through multiple repetitive uses. The thermostats monitor the espresso, steam and boiler heat to ensure excellent espresso extraction without worrying about overheating.
  • Stainless Steel Construction: Brushed stainless steel case, rust resistant steel frame, stainless steel bolts and screws and only the finest fittings and tubing give this machine a sleek, industrial and functional design.
  • Plug n Play: Requiring no special plumbing or electrical outlets, you can easily plug the Silvia right in and it's ready to operate.
  • Portafilter and Filter Baskets: The Silvia comes with a commercial-grade, heavy-duty chrome plated brass portafilter and two stainless steel filter baskets (one for single shot, one for double shot) which measure 58mm in diameter.
  • Drip/Cup Tray and Warmer: The stainless steel drip pan and cup tray are easy to remove and clean. Plus, a warming surface on the top of the machine gives you a space to warm your cup before you pour your espresso, keeping it at the right temperature — an essential element of fine espresso.
Pros
  • Easy to Use - Users will find that operating the Rancilio Silvia is simple.
  • Good Price for High-End Machine - You can't go wrong with the price of this well-designed, high-end machine.
Cons
  • Precise Grind Needed - To extract an ideal shot, you'll need to achieve a rather precise grind.
  • No Programming - With the exception of the PID (optional install), there are no programming capabilities with the Rancilio Silvia.

How Does it Compare? The Rancilio Silvia produces ideal shots, but it takes a little more work because of its specific grind requirement. Be prepared to dial in your grind every time you use a new bag of beans, and to use fresh beans for the best flavor.

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
