Rancilio Silvia 2016 "E" Edition Espresso Coffee Machine
Impressive steaming power: Once the Silvia is up to steaming temperature, it produces surprisingly powerful, dry steam.
Solid brass boiler: Many espresso machines in Silvia’s price range have aluminum boilers, which don't retain heat as well as brass.
Commercial-grade components: From the commercial portafilter to the internal workings, everything on the Silvia is built to last.
Shallow drip tray: If you don't empty the drip tray after each use, you’ll have a mess on your countertops. Industrial aesthetics: Silvia is built to last, but its boxy housing isn’t for everyone. Single boiler: With a single boiler, you can’t steam and brew in unison, but with a little technique (see FAQ tab for details), you'll get great results.
The Rancilio Silvia 2016 Edition. espresso machine is in a class all by itself. Whilst most manufacturers have a range of domestic and commercial machines, Rancilio is primarily a commercial coffee machine manufacturer. Rancilio only make one domestic coffee machine; the Silvia. All the expertise of building high quality commercial coffee machines has been compressed and built into a machine for the home that has a reputation for solid performance and reliability. To our surprise, the New V4 EDITION has upgrades from the previous model that make this machine even more desirable! It has a large brass boiler that allows for ample steam product, a solid brass 58mm group head for superior heat stability and an iron frame with stainless steel casing for long lasting durability. The portafilter comes with a commercial, ergonomically designed handle, as standard equipment. Other features include a built in cup warmer, hot water dispensing for hot chocolates, tea, and long espresso drinks. A newly designed multi directional steam wand makes milk frothing even easier, as you can use a variety of size and shape jugs. The Silvia has a large water reservoir which is filled from the top of the machine so this can be done easily at any time for continual production of great shots. There are also some safety features that are worth take into consideration.
There is a thermostat for the boiler, another for the steam production, and a third thermostat that turns off the power to the boiler if there has been a mal function. This third thermostat can be reset anytime as it is really a circuit breaker style switch. It is located inside the machine so be prepared to remove some screws. There are videos on YouTube showing more details of this. Also, the Silvia has a 3 way solenoid valve that releases pressure within the machine once the brew switch is switched off. This helps prevent scalding and dripping as well as letting the coffee puck remain drier for easier knocking out.
To go with your SilvaA good grinder is as important as a good coffee machine and this factor is often overlooked. We feel the Silvia and Eureka Mignon, rather than the Rocky make a great combination. The Eureka Mignon with it's stepless micro adjustment capability makes this an ideal pairing, if you have a tight budget then consider a Tiamo hand grinder requires a bit of manual effort but will grind fine enough to give a good espresso. Also, do not overlook a good tamper!

After careful consideration we added the Rancilio Silvia single boiler to our range in 2014. The V3 edition, as it was known then with the upgraded boiler from aluminium to brass combined with the steel element made this a very desirable single boiler espresso machine for the money. .
