    What is it?

    The Rancilio Silvia is a single boiler espresso machine with a vibratory pump and a saturated group head. It is run off its internal 2L reservoir.

    Who is it for?

    You're ready to pull shots of espresso at home but don't want to break the bank doing so. You might have limited counter space and also don't plan to make back to back drinks for a large gathering - maybe just you and a friend or two. You want something simple and straightforward that's built to last, with a solid track record.

    Why do we carry it?

    The Silvia certainly isn't fancy, but it was never trying to be. In its two decades on the market, the Silvia, though unsuspecting, has proven to be an incredibly reliable machine. Due to its extended popularity, it's also one of the best-known machines by home baristas and technicians alike. We carry it as a very budget-friendly option for those who want a simple shot in the morning, and possibly a second in the afternoon.
