Consumer Espresso: Rancilio Silvia
Previous Product Consumer Espresso Next Product

A true benchmark machine, this machine made Rancilio a lot of money since it was introduced in 1998 - it has become the standard against which all other consumer, single boiler machines are measured against. Currently in its 3rd revision.

Andrew K (quality: 3.0) 01.25.2006 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: if you have the coin you'll never want to buy a different machine.  It's the Paul Reed Smith/Chris King of home Coffee Machines.

Jim Robins (quality: 4.0) 05.06.2001 Rating: 5.2
