Under 25 posts Topic: why is the Silvia given a bad rap?
Forum: Espresso Discussions: Espresso Machines   Subject: Re: why is the Silvia given a bad rap?   Posted: Mon Apr 27, 2015, 9:41am

Preview: It's not really that it's given a bad rap.  It just hasn't kept up with the market while crawling quite a bit upwards in price.  Even at its price point there have been better options for many years....

Forum: Espresso Discussions: Espresso Machines   Subject: Re: Exploring my Rancilio Sylvia   Posted: Mon Apr 27, 2015, 9:18am

Preview: When I use my Sylvia, it is shot first then steam. All the same reasons as above. There is nothing wrong with milk drinks, I have shots and milk drinks every day and I enjoy them both. One is not better...
