General info

1.weight

14kg

21kg

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.warranty period

2

1

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
3.thickness

290mm

424.18mm

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.
4.volume

23171cm³

49095.32cm³

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

340mm

350.52mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Uses ground coffee
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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.

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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 pressure gauge
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
3.Has a steam wand
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
4.Has a 58mm portafilter
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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.
5.Uses E61 brew group
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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 a display
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.

Water source

1.Has integrated filter
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has a hot water outlet
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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

2.18l

2.9l

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

0.3l

1.8l

A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.
6.Has direct water connection
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.

Maintenance

1.Has dry puck feature
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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.Has a pre-infusion function
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Evoluzione V2
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.
