General info

1.weight

16.33kg

14kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

419.1mm

290mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

387.35mm

340mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.Uses ground coffee
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
5.volume

39172.25cm³

23171cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.width

241.3mm

235mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
2.Has a steam wand
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a 58mm portafilter
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
4.Uses E61 group head
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
5.Uses E61 brew group
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.
6.Has cup warmer
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.Has integrated filter
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
2.Has a removable water tank
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
4.water tank capacity

2.75l

2.18l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
5.boiler size

1.5l

0.3l

A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Has dry puck feature
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
3.Has a pre-infusion function
Expobar Office Control
Rancilio Silvia
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
4.programmable buttons

4

0

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
