It inspires me to write a travel adventure called "Driving Miss Silvio". I simply love every aspect of it.
Positive Product Points
Robust, durable machine that emulates the commercial machine. I love this machine to bits.
Negative Product Points
Haven't found any negatives yet.
I'm glad I chose Miss Silvio against a similar Gaggia machine. My advisor on 'wholelattelove.com' heard that I wanted a machine that would make me work like a barista and therefore emulate many of the features of a commercial machine. It does and is everything the reviews and manufacturer's literature says it is. It is superb value for money. It is unforgiving (as expected) and makes me work hard to hone my grinding and other techniques. I wanted to work like a barista rather than cheat. With the Rancilio Rocky grinder, I'm making close to perfect shots after four weeks and have produced consisistently thick and creamy latte milk after practicing daily for four weeks.
