Subject: Rancilio Silvia....moving on to? Which machine?
 

Hi we have a well loved Rancilio Silvia which we rely on for making 2-6 coffees per day.
We love a latte so milky microfoam is important and at times the Rancilio comes up a little short in this dept. Also having to wait for the steam to get up to temperature is a pain...if I had to be picky!

Can anyone recommend machines in the next 'level up ' of coffee machines which would enable us to produce shots + amazing milk at the same time? Am I asking too much!

Any advice welcomed. I am not expert just an enthusiast!

"How to Buy an Espresso Machine"

You will probably be looking at a heat exchange or a double boiler.  There are some new things on the block like the CC1 and nocturn that is not out yet.  I am pretty happy with my heat exchange.

I had a Rancilio Silvia for two years and just upgraded to a Quick Mill Anita. Although I was happy with the Silvia, I am now really pleased with the Anita. It was more expensive than I originally planned to spent but it looks like it will last for ever. There are a couple of extensive reviews of the Anita on youtube that will give you a much more thorough overview than I ever could.

So what's your budget, and does that include a new grinder as well?
