Commercial-grade rocker switches with integrated indicator lights are featured on the Rancilio Silvia. The main power switch is located in the centre on the face of the machine. There are two indicators next to the main switch. The green light is to let you know the machine is on, and the orange one is to let you know the element is active. When the Silvia is first turned on, the orange light adjacent to the switch will illuminate. The light will remain illuminated until the machine is at operating temperature for brewing espresso, or steaming/frothing milk. On the left side of the control panel are the controls for brewing espresso (top), dispensing hot water (middle), and steam activation (bottom).
The Rancilio Silvia has a stainless steel steam wand that pushes out ample amounts of steam. This steam wand features a one hole removable tip that can swivel around allowing a great range of motion. In under 35 seconds the Silvia is capable of getting 200ml of milk to optimum temperature.
This model Silvia features an insulated boiler. This insulation improves energy consumption and will help maintain temperature stability.Other features of the Rancilio Silvia are:
Brass Parts – this includes a brass boiler, brass lines, and a chromed brass group head. The large brass boiler can hold up to 300ml, making it ideal for home use.Removable Water Reservoir – the Silvia has a 2 litre capacity removable water reservoir. For ease of use, it can be removed for filling or topped up whilst the machine is running.
Commercial Group Head – the main advantage of this tried and true group head is that it produces consistent shots for proper extraction. The heavy chrome plated group handle and filter baskets (58mm), are identical to the ones used in the Rancilio commercial line.
Cup Storage – the stainless steel cup stacking surface, located on top of the Silvia, is passively heated. This is essential when making a great espresso!
Removable Drip and Cup Tray – for easy cleaning.
Instant Hot Water – for tea, coffee and other hot beverages.
Pressure Release System – the Silvia has a three-way solenoid valve which works by releasing any built up pressure in the group handle once an espresso shot has been made. This feature allows the machine to be prepared for making another espresso instantly.
Accessories – Group Handle (portafilter) with double spout, two stainless steel filter baskets (8 & 16 gram) for making either single or double shots of espresso, coffee tamper, measuring spoon, rubber back flushing disc, an instruction booklet, a user friendly information sheet that we have put together explaining how to get started and operate your Rancilio Silvia.
