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: This machine rocks, but if you're looking for an automated machine, stick with the Solis SL90.
Thomas Gauperaa (quality: 7.0) 07.19.2002 Rating: 9.2

Raymond G (quality: 7.0) 12.26.2006 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: I like metaphors so here's how I'll summarize this. This machine is not a luxury sedan. It's like a Porsche. It's not comfortable and easy to drive, but once you get the hang of it, you'll find that you can soon be pulling shots like a pro barista.

Brian Rose (quality: 7.0) 09.29.2010 Rating: 8.4

Bottom Line: Fantastic product that produces superb results
Jonathan Christie (quality: 7.0) 12.30.2009 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Excellent machine that can produce top quality espresso and very good micro-foam. Recommended as a 2nd machine however, as it takes some time to fine tune.
Ira Weiss (quality: 7.0) 01.02.2002 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: A sleek looking high quality system that makes great shots!
Jon Rutherford (quality: 7.0) 04.29.2005 Rating: 9.2

Shannon Richardson (quality: 7.0) 01.07.2002 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: Anyone who is serious about making quality espresso, this is it.
Ryan Kew (quality: 7.0) 12.07.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This is one Pimp Espresso Machine, easy to use and doesnt seem to have a steep learning curve to get a nice espresso with tons of crema and awesome froth that many reviewers would have you believe. In other words its user friendly even for a 1st machine.
Steven Henderson (quality: 6.9) 12.29.2002 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: The Best machine for the money by far. If you cant afford a new one then get a used Silvia.
William Enwright (quality: 6.8) 06.23.2002 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: A beautifully made machine that deserves your attention; before and after purchase.
Brent Baker (quality: 6.8) 01.04.2007 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: An amazing machine with professional-grade parts that (when paired with a quality grinder and consistently good barista skills) can produce amazing espresso beverages
