Rancilio Silvia V1 - reconditioned
60057230Rated 3/5 based on 1 reviews.
A refurbished Silvia in working condition with 3 months warranty. New seals, reconditioned steam valve, descaled and cleaned. There may be wear/tear marks and blemishes as this item has been used. The Silvia has a steel chassis which is powder coated. There may be some surface rust where the powder coat has worn off under the drip tray.
The Rancilio Silvia home espresso machine is able to deliver cafe quality espresso and steamed milk good enough for cafe quality lattes and cappuccinos. Unlike appliances sold in department stores, it is manufactured by an Italian company that specialises in Espresso Machine manufacture. It has been designed to last, with key components made of brass and stainless steel rather than Zinc and plastic.
The Silvia must be paired with a quality burr grinder, such as the Rancilio Rocky. But in our view, upgrading to something like the Compak K3 Touch is well worth it (if coffee flavour is your primary concern).
It can take a little effort to master, so if you want to use it like a pro enroll in one of our home barista courses.
Rancilio Silvia - A Closer Look
Key components on the Rancilio Silvia are made from brass - the group head, boiler and portafilter. This ensures great longevity and very good thermal stability.
Thermal stability is required to get great espresso extractions. After pre heating the machine, the heavy brass components will not easily move from their steady-state temperature which helps the brew water stay close to the optimal brew temperature.
Because the brew head and portafilter are made from brass, they will have long service lives. This is in stark contrast to chinese made appliances available from department stores.
It's important to use the right size tamper for any coffee machine. The perfect size for the Silvia is 58.3mm. We have a PreciseFit tamper custom made for the Silvia.

still getting to know her8 June 2016HI, I got a refurbished Sylvia V1 recently and I'm still getting to know how she works best. It looks like I will need to replace a seal... My review might change after that.
