Comparison: Silvia vs Barista Express

In corner number one we have the The The Breville Barista Express has a stainless steel boiler with a thermocoil design. What's a thermocoil? A thermocoil or thermoblock takes water from the reservoir in an espresso machine and heats it on the fly, versus heating up a full boiler of water. The benefit is a shorter wait time for the water to come to temperature, but it is not as consistent. The Barista Express has a built in burr grinder, so for someone on a budget or with limited counter space this would be an excellent option. The Breville has several programming options, something the Silvia does not have. Be sure to check out our full Crew Review Comparison video below!
