With the growing importance on time management, where we need to be always punctual and the ever busy morden lifestyle. Espresso machine is a very vital item in every household and coffee house to get your coffee ready in a short while an move on to your next activity. Given a variety of espresso machines which vary with different coffee flavors from simple, relatively complex and totally exotic, Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine with Iron Frame and Stainless Steel Side Panels is a popular, classic style and semi-automatic espresso machine that lasts a long time.

The great coffee maker comes with a good grinder and water filter. The Silvia espresso machine produces excellent coffee and silky micro foam milk for cappuccino and latte. It therefore offers totally professional levels of performance and reliability.

 

Features of the Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine review:

The Rancilio Silvia Espresso machine has the following great features which make it very reliable and efficient in performance.

 

Boiler wrapped in a foam thermal insulator:

This is a power saving feature which helps to reduce the energy usage when the machine is working, thus maintaining thermal stability. It also aids in prevention of the internal parts of the coffee machine from releasing toxic substances which may compromise the quality of the beverage. As a way of energy saving, the machine is designed to automatically shut off after 30 minutes of inactivity.

Pods and cups adapter:

The Silvia espresso machine has special adapters and filter holders that are designed to hold the coffee cups that are available in the market, (this is an optional feature though). This allows the ground coffee aroma to always stay fresh. The filter holder is fitted with chrome-plated group cover to enhance the image of this coffee machine.

 

Steam nozzle, wand and valve:

This new upgraded steam arm from Rancilio is brilliant and much better than the standard wand that is available in the market since it gives the operator more control on how to regulate the temperature of the beverage being prepared, the wand is also designed in a way that makes it easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

 

Stainless steel construction:

It is fitted with a rust resistant steel frame, knobs and other great features which gives it a more sleek and executive look. The stainless steel construction enables it to last longer thus saving on the replacement cost.

 

Heavy duty pump (15 BAR):

This high pressure pump enables extraction of full coffee flavor to maintain its original aroma, making it convenient and easy to use.

 

Pros:

The coffee machine has the following great benefits as per the many applauding online reviews

  • Value for money; due to its reliable and high performance feature Silvia espresso delivers high quality coffee, you have to agree with me that with such a kind of machine, there is no loss.
  • Good looking (design wise); this machine has a sleek characteristic that gives it an edge over other espresso machines. The stainless steel provides a long-lasting yet professional outlook on the product
  • The machine offers free shipping, so as much as it’s heavy (weighs a ton).It comes with a good package deal for transportation.
  • Good coffee is easy to achieve since the coffee extraction time is effectively controlled by the machine.

 

Cons:

  • The machine has temperature swing therefore if not carefully monitored, it can easily burn or the beverage can come out weak and sour with poor cream.
  • Not easy to make shots with if not carefully operated with an efficient grinder, one may have to toss quite a number of shots in the trash before coming up with a perfect shots, not forgetting numerous trials of grinders before getting the right one

 

Final Verdict:

There may be numerous models of espresso machines in the market, but if what you are looking for is a timeless, reliable and a high performance machine that gives you quality coffee, Rancilio Silvia espresso is the way to go. There has been fuss in the internet on the quality of the grinder that comes with the Silvia espresso (which I do not deny), however the trick lies in the burr grinder that ensures its optimal use.

This machine works exactly the way it should work and if you are the kind of person who wouldn’t mind to spend for quality and durability I do recommend Silvia espresso.
