The Rancilio Silvia is, quite simply, the best espresso machine in the under-$1,000 field. Introduced in 1997, the Rancilio quickly became legendary for its quality stainless steel construction and its versatility. It’s not only the best-selling espresso machine of all time, it may be the most modified espresso machine ever. The V3 includes a number of important upgrades, including an adjustable expansion valve and a commercial articulating steam wand.
COMMERCIAL QUALITY FOR THE HOME
Rancilio makes commercial machines, and the Silvia benefits fom the company’s knowledge and experience. The Silvia features the same commercial grade components used on their professional machines, including a forged marine-grade brass boiler, chromed brass group head and chromed brass portafilter. The body is polished stainless steel over a solidly built iron frame.
IMPRESSIVE STEAM POWER FOR VELVETY FOAM
Turn out beautiful cappas and macchiatos with the articulated commercial steam arm. The Silvia works up an impressive head of steam and delivers it in a consistent, steady stream required for perfect microfoam.
CLEAN LINES, EFFICIENT DESIGN, NEW OPTIONS
The Rancilio Silvia is a workhorse machine with thoroughbred lines – clean, straight and built for efficiency. The convenience factors include a 3-way solenoid valve, which relieves residual water pressure and prevents exploding espresso, leaving you a nice, dry puck that’s much easier to clean up. In addition, the new Silvia V3 comes standard with an ergonomic commercial portafilter, and can be adapted for use with ESE espresso pods with the Rancilio Espresso Pod Adapter kit.
