    Overview

    Rancilio Silvia V4

    In our opinion this is the best espresso machine available for under $1,000. Silvia is a solid, commercial grade machine offering reliability, clean design, and no cheap plastic parts. With a little bit of practice you'll be pulling beautiful, thick espresso shots with ease.

    COMMERCIAL QUALITY

    This remarkable machine delivers impressive quality normally seen on much more expensive models. It features a forged marine-grade brass boiler, with chrome-plated brass group head and portafilter. The polished stainless steel housing envelops a sturdy iron frame.

    PERFECT MACCHIATOS AND CAPPUCCINOS

    Silvia lets out a rambunctious yet smooth hiss of steam that is easily controlled with a perfectly positioned knob. It's easy to steam up billowing, velvety micro-foam for macchiato or cappuccino. The commercial style steam wand is solid and easy to clean with a wet towel.

    SIMPLE, TIMELESS DESIGN

    The Silvia is a genuine work-horse, with a simple, easy to clean Italian design. To minimize mess, a 3-way solenoid valve relieves residual water pressure from the brew head and moves it to the drip tray. This means the excess moisture is pulled from the portafilter, leaving a solid espresso puck.

    Pros

    • Impressive steaming power

      Once the Silvia is up to steaming temperature, it produces surprisingly powerful, dry steam.

    • Solid brass boiler

      Many espresso machines in Silvia's price range have aluminum boilers, which don't retain heat as well as brass.

    • Commercial-grade components

      From the commercial portafilter to the internal workings, everything on the Silvia is built to last.

    Cons

    • Shallow drip tray

      If you don't empty the drip tray after each use, you'll have a mess on your countertops.

    • Industrial aesthetics

      Silvia is built to last, but its boxy housing isn't for everyone.

    • Single boiler

      With a single boiler, you can't steam and brew in unison, but with a little technique (see FAQ tab for details), you'll get great results.
