General info

1.weight

14kg

8.16kg

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

290mm

304.8mm

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

340mm

317.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.volume

23171cm³

24580.6cm³

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

235mm

254mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Uses ground coffee
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
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 steam wand
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has cup warmer
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
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
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
2.Water tank is transparent
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
3.Has a removable water tank
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Rancilio Silvia
Saeco Via Venezia
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.boiler size

0.3l

0.26l

A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Features

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.
