Anyone who has been making espressos at home for the past few years would have heard of the Rancilio Silvia. Well, there is a reason why the Rancilio espresso machines have been the top of the line, or the gold standard test, or the final touchstone, or whatever you would call it, for the various home espresso machines in the market for eight years or so.
I had wondered about it earlier, why the Rancilio Silvia espresso machine is so popular and what is so good about it. After getting it and experiencing it for myself, what can I say? I absolutely loved it! I realized that the line that separates a Rancilio from other home espresso machines is drawn at the quality of the parts. Rancilio espresso machines actually have parts similar to the commercial machines.
I wouldn’t have gone and read up boring company histories if I wasn’t so impressed with my Miss Silvia, but I did and apparently Rancilio had been manufacturing commercial espresso machines since 1927. They only came out with the household machines after 54 years of producing professional espresso makers. No wonder their home espresso machines are good.
Rancilio Silvia – Best Espresso Machine
This Rancilio espresso machine is a heavy and solid unit with stainless steel exterior and a quality brass boiler. Brass is the best material for the boiler because it is resistant to corrosion and heats evenly, and this simply means that my espresso machine will last longer.
You can actually brush up your skills using this semi automatic espresso maker because all the manual factors like grinding the beans, tamping the portafilter, and steaming the milk, will need a bit of practice on your part to come up with the perfect cup of espresso with thick crema or cappuccino with microfoam.
I’m never going to Starbucks again while I have my Miss Silvia; I feel like a Starbucks barista myself now, brewing my own coffee in the mornings, especially when the quality is no less.
