Rancilio silvia espresso machine

  1. 1. Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine – Coffee on Demand The Rancilio Silvia espresso machine 2010 edition is a machine which has a popularity among users worldwide. Having over four years of dependable overall performance, the Rancilio Silvia is one of the most highly regarded semi-automatic machines within the business. The Rancilio Silvia espresso machine features a forged marine brass portafilter, group head, and boiler. The large 12-ounce boiler also allows for steam capacity which is unequalled by other machines at this size and price. The Rancilio Silvia is a little fussy regarding the grind that you use with it. We highly recommend partnering this machine with a top-quality burr grinder such as the Rancilio Rocky or Gaggia MDF or Isomac ROBY or GranMacinino. This machine also comes with a 7 gram coffee scoop, a plastic tamper, and two filter baskets (single and double). Some of the most crucial elements for producing high quality espresso are influenced by the Style, Size and Construction of the portafilter. Size: The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area.
  2. 2. Construction: The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, therefore producing a quality cup of espresso. This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity. Style: This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and is tamped (pressed) firmly into place. Boiler: The Rancilio Silvia espresso machine‘s boiler is constructed of marine quality brass and also offers the largest volume of any home machine in its class. This large volume delivers the very best steaming power and recycle time when making several espressos. The brass structure resists unsightly pitting and scale build up for prolonged durability. The three-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that relieves the water pressure off the coffee when the brew switch is turned off. This has two functions; it dries out the coffee to prevent dripping and makes it simple for you to knock the coffee out of the portafilter with one knock. The Silvia has the same switches as their popular S20 series commercial units. There are four snap-acting rocker arm switches. The main power switch is situated in the middle by itself. Whenever this is switched on the heating element is activated. A separate orange ready light will then turn on. As soon as the light goes off the machine is at operating temperature. The top left switch works the pump and is also known as the brew switch. Switch on to begin the brewing process and off when you are finished. The middle button on the left is for dispensing hot water. The bottom left switch activates the steam function. When this is switched on the boiler will heat up to steam temperature. Then turn the steam/water knob situated on the side of the machine and start frothing.
  3. 3. Preheating your cups is really crucial. The Rancilio Silvia espresso machine includes a cup warmer which will hold up to six espresso cups. It is a passive type heater which means it is heated from the residual heat of the boiler. If you need hot water for any reason, be it hot chocolate, tea or Americanos it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to flow out. The Silvia comes equipped with a stainless steel steam wand. It is a single hole style and does not have any type of frothing attachment. With this type of wand it takes a little more skill but is very durable and gives you excellent control. The steam wand does get hot, so wipe it off as soon as you are done so the milk will not stick to it. The large removable 2 quart reservoir can be refilled from the top any time during the operation, allowing for an endless supply of coffee or steam. Thermostat and Safety Switches: The Rancilio Silvia espresso machine has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brewing temperature and one for maintaining steaming temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction. This prevents the boiler from overheating. The high limit switch can be reset and does not have to be replaced if activated. Housing Construction The construction of this unit is second to none. The frame that supports the unit is made of heavy iron. The exterior casing, drip pan and drip tray are made of high quality stainless steel. Not only is the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine rock solid and easy to clean, it also fits in perfectly with today’s high-
