The Rancilio Silvia is the best selling machine in its class. Rancilio are predominantly a commercial coffee machine manufacturer and this is there home version. Only two home products but what a machine. The build quality is superb. All you need to do is hold the portafilter in your hand and you want this machine! it says quality and longevity all over. It's no wonder its one of our best selling machines.
Many people considering purchasing a home espresso machine ask me which is best, the Gaggia Classic or the Rancilio Silvia V6, without a doubt the Silvia is better. Since Philips bought Gaggia in 2015 the Classic is no longer a contender.
If you want an espresso machine that will make excellent espressos and cappuccinos that will last for decades then the Silvia is for you.
If you are not going to have to buy another machine for 20 years then why not stretch yourself to the Silvia PRO with dual boiler and PID!
The only downside to the Silvia is that it requires a fairly fine grind to extract the perfect shot with beautiful crema, so you do need to spend on a grinder to reach perfection. The Rocky is the perfect companion for Silvia.
Have a look on our site for the combo deal where you can buy the Silvia and Rocky at a discounted price.
Here are some of the extras you might want to consider.
