Overview

Looking for a home espresso machine built like the real deal? Look no further than the Rancilio Silvia. Designed after some of the most iconic commercial machines to grace a bartop, the Silvia packs in durability, reliability, and vintage charm into a footprint about the size of a sheet of paper. This single boiler workhorse stands out at its pricepoint with sturdy steel casing, burly brass components and all-manual operation. The Silvia also manages must-have functionality like a 3-way solenoid, a standard 58mm portafilter, and easy access internals for maintenance and repair. The Siliva's focus on long-lasting service is just one reason it has remained largely unchanged in its decades-long run.

Features and Functionality

  • Classic Espresso - The Silvia has been in production for over 20 years—making it one of the most stable espresso platforms on the market.
  • Single Boiler - The single 12-ounce brass boiler serves both brew and steam temperatures.
  • Steel Case - The Silvia's steel case offers sturdy service and fits in any decor.
  • Professional Components - Built with the same exacting care as Rancilio's commercial lineup, you can rely on the Silvia to pull shot-after-shot for as long as you need.
  • 3-Way Solenoid - A dedicated group solenoid helps purge excess pressure, preventing portafilter 'sneezes' and allowing for backflushing.
  • Compact Case - The Silvia's 9.5"x11" base and 13 inch height makes it suited for the smallest of spaces.
Pros
  • Built to Last - Thanks to the Silvia's robust simplicity, you can find many decades-old working examples still in use today.
  • Primer - The Silvia Will teach you everything you ever needed to know about making espresso.
  • Good Espresso - With a little practice, the Silvia will brew an excellent shot, cappuccino, or latte.
Cons
  • Touchy - Sturdy and simple, yes—but the Silvia's wide temperature swings and unrestricted flow rate make it a challenge to operate for beginners.
  • Hot Water Woes - The Silvia does not come with a hot water wand for tea or Americanos.
SCG Staff Says... Note: Current Silvia HSD-SILVIA-19 models may ship with either power or lightning symbols on their power switch.
How Does it Compare? Overbuilt components and a dead-simple setup set the Silvia apart from other machines at its pricepoint. Better, it's also available with a PID controller pre-installed which makes it a much easier machine to use. Want to learn more about PIDs? Click Here.
Tips and Tricks We recommend steaming first, then brewing for better milk drinks.
