Positive Product Points

- makes great espresso, even if your grind or tamp is slightly off
- PID and pressure gauge give you feedback on performance
- ready to pull a shot in 10 minutes
- steams pretty well and no wait time to steam
- easy refill
- quality construction
- compact footprint

Negative Product Points

- doesn't look like a $2000 machine, wait, it's not.  so scratch that. Certain parts (like the drip tray) are pretty simple stamped sheet metal construction but it looks really nice.

Detailed Commentary

At my last work place we had a Sylvia.  I never could l figure that thing out. I didn't know about temp surfing and we had a capresso grinder, which wasn't good enough for the Sylvia.  Now, at home with the Silvano, I don't need to play any games like that.  Granted, I now have a Virtuoso Preciso grinder.  But my sense is: the Silvano is not too sensitive to grind.  Get a good grinder like the Preciso and you're good to go.  At my current work place we have a high end commercial machine and grinder and quality beans.  I get better espresso at home with the Silvano.

I'm new to espresso at home, I'm no expert on espresso but what's not to like about this machine?

Buying Experience

Chris Coffee was great. They threw in a really nice pound of dark roast beans that they produce (voodoo).
