Bottom Line: Fantastic, I love to make coffee with Miss Silvia!!!
Positive Product Points

Perfect, a very good construction, very good performance, ... I love it!
99% of metal and a raisonnable size. can go into every kitchen!

Negative Product Points

The water tank don't have a simple system to be remove. It's the only one thing i've found.

Detailed Commentary

in french:
Terrible, cette machine est magnifique.
La construction est quasi-entièrement en métal, le poids est conséquent d'ailleurs: 14kg! Mais ce sentiment de solidité absolue est génial, on se sent alchimiste lorsque l'on prépare un café avec. c'est incroyable.

Le café est chaud, trés chaud, la vapeur est puissante (même si je ne m'en sers pas trop!) et si la consommation électrique vous effraie, dites-vous qu'une fois chaude, le thermostat s'active que de temps en temps environ et pour une quarantaine de secondes.

Par contre, le temps de chauffe initial est long.

Le seul reproche c'est le réservoir d'eau qui n'est pas des plus pratiques à extraire.

Buying Experience

In french:
je suis passé par un fournisseur pour professionnels, autant pour la machine à café Silvia, ça a été; pour le moulin Rocky, ils sont revenu à plusieurs fois sur le tarif.

Franchement, il vaut mieux passer par une société qui traite avec du public et non avec des marchands de tapis. Je pense que le meilleur moyen est de passer par un torrefacteur.

Three Month Followup

In french:

A l'usage, même si la machine géniale, la durée des opérations est laborieuse. Il faut pas mal de patience pour maitriser la bête.
C'est le revers de la médaille. Ma superautomatique Krups remarche de plus en plus souvent le midi.
