Bottom Line: Solid, learning curve to pour a credible shot
Positive Product Points

Super solid, great construction
After the effort of really getting to know the machine inside and out, I felt I could pour a credible shot

Negative Product Points

Takes a long time to heat/pre-heat the boiler
Found it time/labor intensive to get to a great shot

Detailed Commentary

I'm on the prowl for my next espresso machine.  After having owned the Silvia for years, I never developed a mac-like affinity for the product.  

I tend to think of coffee and want it, not with a delayed reaction for the heating mechanism.  Out of the box shots poured weren't ideal.  I also felt like I wanted more real-time visibility into boiler temperature.

Like other Rancilio products, such as the Rocky, the build and overall quality of the machine is impeccable.  I just didn't quite end up jibing with it.

Buying Experience

Amazon, sure worked fine
