Overview

Take your morning shot to new levels of accuracy with the Rancilio Silvia PID Espresso Machine. Originally spartan on features, the base Silvia's overbuilt design suited our techs perfectly! They've added a solid-state relay and PID controller to replace the original thermometer setup; tightening temp control and offering easy adjustments through the front-facing LCD screen. Better, the new controller unit also adds pre-infusion programming for those trickier coffee blends, as well as a programmable shot times for automatic shot brewing. Equipped with more consistent shot temperatures and some labor-saving features, the Silvia PID is just the machine for the lover of classic espresso with an eye for the present.

Features and Functionality

  • PID Accuracy - Digital temperature management offers higher accuracy, to-the-degree temperature control, and quicker recovery when brewing or steaming.
  • Pre-Infusion - Programmable infusion and dwell time makes shots easier to pull and more repeatable.
  • Shot Timer - Set and save your ideal shot time for consistent espresso.
  • Prosumer Components - The Silvia's survivor status is built on a steel case, solid brass boiler, and portafilter and group designs from Rancilio's commercial line that all offer excellent service life.
  • Backflushable - An integrated 3-way solenoid valve makes the Silvia group easy to clean, and helps to relieve back-pressure from the portafilter for cleaner coffee pucks.
Pros
  • PID Prowess - Not only does the PID get you tighter temperature control, but it also adds pre-infusion and shot time programming.
  • Build Quality - There are still original Silvias kicking around from 20 years ago. A machine with this level of build-quality is hard to find.
Cons
  • Single Boiler - A dual-use single boiler means you'll have to manually manage temp between brewing and steaming.
SCG Staff Says... Note: Current HSD-SILVIA-19 models may ship with either power or lightning switch symbols.
How Does it Compare? The Silvia PID replaces the standard bi-metallic thermostats found in the Base Silvia with an electronic PID controller and solid state relay. With a PID, your machine features a much more precise temperature profile, as well as preinfusion and shot timing—making the Silvia PID significantly more forgiving then its PIDless counterpart.
