Consumer Espresso: Rancilio Silvia
Previous Product Consumer Espresso Next Product

A true benchmark machine, this machine made Rancilio a lot of money since it was introduced in 1998 - it has become the standard against which all other consumer, single boiler machines are measured against. Currently in its 3rd revision.

Andrew Balfe (quality: 0.3) 03.20.2010 Rating: 4.8
Bottom Line: Good machine while it worked, wouldn't risk another one as it is too expensive for such a short life.  Going back to Gaggia.
Andrew K (quality: 3.0) 01.25.2006 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: if you have the coin you'll never want to buy a different machine.  It's the Paul Reed Smith/Chris King of home Coffee Machines.

Bottom Line: silvia is a great machine at a good price, which will hopefully keep away the upgrade fever for a while yet
Bartholomew Bono (quality: 7.7) 02.06.2007 Rating: 8.8

Beau Dromiack (quality: 4.5) 09.21.2008 Rating: 10.0

Benjamin Fournier (quality: 8.0) 08.03.2007 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Excellent first espresso machine for the home.  Highly superior value to lower end machines, well worth the step up. Exceptional resale value if later upgrade desired.
Bill Guthrie (quality: 6.8) 01.08.2005 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: This machine serves as a fantastic entry into the world of espresso, yet it more than likely will be all the machine that I will ever need.
Bob (quality: 2.5) 11.27.2000 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: You can not find a better machine for under $500.00
