Rancilio Silvia M - New Features, More efficient, Semi Automatic Espresso Machine.
Latest edition Rancilio Silvia M espresso machine takes energy efficiency seriously. The new thermal insulation boiler improves energy consumption up to 8% in stand-by mode. The Silvia M also features a new power switch with 2 indicator lights and Black Grouphead collar (as of 2020). Green light indicates the machine is on and orange light indicates that the espresso machine is heating.
The Silvia M comes with new improved Stainless heating element. Unlike previous versions where the heating element was part of the top boiler, it is now removable and easy to replace without the need to replace the complete boiler. The SIlvia-M comes standard with ball joint steam wand and classic portafilter handle with Rancilio Logo embosed.
Commercial features of the Rancilio Silvia M include latest advancements in brass technology implemented in heavy duty lead-free brass boiler. Also included commercial size 58mm grouphead and portafilter handle, copper piping and metal body with brushed stainless steel panelling. Miss Silvia has been around for many years... its stylish design and semi commercial components has made her the most popular, reliable espresso machine in its price range and excellent home coffee bar.
Included 4 solid rocker switches with ready lights built in each. All located in the front, on the right side - power switch, left side top - brew switch, middle - hot water, bottom - steam.
The Silvia's 58mm commercial portafilter handle comes from Rancilio's commercial production line and ensures that the water distributes evenly for even extraction of the ground coffee in the portafilter handle. The handle is made from heavy chrome plated brass that maintain temperature stability throughout the entire brewing process.
Genuine Rancilio Naked bottomless portafilter handle is now available for all Rancilio Silvia models.
The Silvia includes an electronic 3 way valve same as in the commercial espresso machines! The valve dries out the used ground coffee in the portafilter immediately after the brew process is completed. This way you can immediately remove the handle, easily knock the dried coffee out (used coffee cookie) and get ready for the next espresso shot.
its fast easy to make coffee with the Rancilio Silvia, simply insert ground coffee in the portafilter basket, lock in the portafilter handle and push the coffee button. Once done, lock out the handle and knock out the used coffee.
Frothing and Steaming milk with the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine require some professionalism. However, this is good news... you need a professional and powerful machine to produce professional latte or cappuccino froth. Its 300cc boiler produce continuous high steam power so its easy to learn to steam and froth in no time.
The Silvia steam/hot water wand swivels 360 degrees on a ball joint and made of Stainless steel.
Special & Convenience
The top of the Rancilio Silvia is ideal for keeping your cups warm. It is made of stainless steel and get its heating from the boiler and grouphead underneath it.
The Silvia M water reservoir contain up to 1.9 Liters of water and is removable for refill. There are 2 pipes in the water tank, we call the first an "intake" pipe as it is taking water from the water tank to the boiler inside and the other is for return from the pump.
We recommend using In tank 3-way Water Filter and connect it to the intake pipe. It removes sediment, soften the water and prevent scale built up in the boiler, heating element, pipes, etc. Regular replacement within 250 cups or 45 days (whichever comes first) would extend dramatically the life of your espresso machine, prevent mechanical problems and improved the coffee flow and taste.
The espresso machine frame and chasis is made from heavy metal that contributes to its heavy solid look and feel while the exterior parts including the drip tray and the drip tray cover are made of commercial grade brushed stainless steel.
