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.

Bottom Line: Very compact and easy to use
Silviu Chitoiu (quality: 7.5) 09.27.2013 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: It's worth every penny
Joseph Tai (quality: 5.5) 07.03.2013 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Great starter machine for 2 people household.  Not the fastest or the prettiest, but she can be the most consistent and faithful espresso machine you can have :)

Bottom Line: Rancilio Silvia
Scott De Rozic 03.27.2013 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Solid, learning curve to pour a credible shot
Steve Edelman (quality: 1.0) 03.17.2013 Rating: 0.8
Bottom Line: Avoid Ranchilio - Flawed construction
Luc Poirier 12.31.2012 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: If you want a machine that makes near perfect expresso or latte at a reasonnable price and that will last for a very long time , buy the Rancilla combo, you won't regret it.
Ed Lawless (quality: 9.0) 12.31.2012 Rating: 5.8
Bottom Line: Almost a brilliant machine - but what a major potiential weakness!!  Buy it, but haggle hard as it is not quite as indestructable as the glossy brochures would have you believe.
Chris Brown 12.20.2012 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: This machine truly is a commercial quality machine without a large footprint.  I would buy again.
Alex Antipa 12.20.2012 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Worth the money!
Oleg Rodionov 12.10.2012 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Beatiful machine, exellent espresso, but regular steel base is prone to rust!  Spill tray area is rusty after 3 years of heavy use. Seriously  Rancilio????
Robin Ingenthron 12.04.2012 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Good if you pre-heat your cup (water in microwave).  Not quite hot enough otherwise.
Charles Lewis 11.16.2012 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: I joined the club.
Johnathan Sisson (quality: 6.7) 08.28.2012 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Great starter machine! Though it will take a while to get used to.
Chris Clark (quality: 9.1) 03.31.2012 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The Silvia is about patience and practice. If you have both in store, you're ready to go.
Ronald Fischer (quality: 8.0) 10.14.2011 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Makes great espresso, slowly.
Jeff Evans (quality: 7.0) 06.28.2011 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: Looks cool.....makes killer espresso.....built solid!
Dwayne Primeau (quality: 0.7) 02.22.2011 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Serious quality - well built - commercial grade.  Requires desire to learn about proper extraction.  With the right grind and technique - will provide better coffee than all but the best coffee shops
William Hendrix 01.29.2011 Rating: 5.6
Bottom Line: The machine is okay but not worth the price. Would not buy an espresso maker on-line again.
Jennifer Cowles (quality: 5.5) 01.14.2011 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: A must have machine for the common household barista to make a killer latte to impress the friends and family. It's one step away from going commercial.
