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: great machine  has a boiler reset button if it overheats and quits working reset your boiler and it will work like new
Steven Henderson (quality: 6.9) 12.29.2002 Rating: 9.8

Steve Cairns (quality: 8.0) 04.28.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: A superb machine for the money.  For those willing to spend time to get to know this equipment, they will be rewarded with wonderful espresso shots and espresso based drinks.
Steve Boothe (quality: 5.7) 04.05.2009 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: If you like using a machine that will force you to develop your barista skills, the Silvia is for you.  Be prepared...she's seductive and will have you counting the minutes until the next time you touch her (just don't tell your wife that!).

Stanley Wong (quality: 5.0) 12.29.2010 Rating: 8.6
