Product Description

Espresso lovers, take a deep breath! The perennial favorite, Rancilio Silvia, has been given a bold, new look for a very limited, exclusive edition. With only 100 machines made available to the US, this is Miss Silvia like you’ve never her before.

 

The machine’s panels have been outfitted in luxurious animal-safe (synthetic) leather finished in Bordeaux (red). Not only stunning, the durable and distinctive wrap is ecologically friendly and certified in compliance with the toughest environmental standards around.

 

Induce envy, enhance your décor, and…oh yeah, brew café quality espresso with this one-of-a-kind machine. Though striking in appearance, the 2010 Limited Edition Rancilio Silvia is every bit the Silvia V3 that we know and love—complete with an ergonomic commercial portafilter, articulating steam wand, and contoured steam knob. For substance and style, consider this limited edition Silvia.

Housing & Construction

This rare Rancilio Silvia edition features hand-stitched eco-leather, which adheres to strict environmental and animal protection standards. The material has also been tested to ensure exceptional performance and reliability. Miss Silvia’s animal-safe leather wrap is applied by the same supplier responsible for the customization of vehicles under luxury automobile manufacturer BMW’s Individual Program. Beneath the stylish exterior, an iron frame supports the unit, providing for a lifetime of durability. In addition, the drip tray and pan are made of high-quality stainless steel, for easy maintenance. The innovative design concept, executed with world-class craftsmanship, makes this limited-edition Rancilio a true connoisseur’s espresso machine of choice.

Features and Benefits: Coffee

Commercial Size and Style Portafilter

Some of the most crucial elements for producing high quality espresso are influenced by the style, size and construction of the portafilter.

Style: This portafilter is designed like a commercial machine and works in the same way. The coffee is ground fine and is tamped (pressed) firmly into place.

 

Size: The size of the portafilter is also the same as a commercial machine. Is has a large diameter (58 mm) so that the water is distributed evenly over a wide surface area.

 

Construction: The portafilter is made up of two parts, the handle and the filter holder. The handle is made of high quality plastic. The heavy chrome plated brass filter holder keeps the temperature stable throughout the entire brewing process, therefore producing a quality cup of espresso.

Commercial Brewing Group

This is the portion of the machine that the portafilter locks into. It is made of chrome plated marine brass which provides a superior brewing environment through maximum heat stability and component longevity.

Boiler

The Silvia's boiler is made of marine grade brass and has the largest volume (12 oz.) of any home machine in its class. This large volume produces the best steaming power and recycle time when brewing multiple espressos. The brass construction resists pitting and scale build up for long lasting durability.

3-Way Solenoid Valve

The three-way solenoid valve is a commercial feature that relieves the water pressure off the coffee when the brew switch is turned off. This serves two functions; it dries out the coffee to prevent dripping and makes it easy to knock the coffee out of the portafilter with one knock.

High Quality Controls with Temperature Ready Light

The Silvia has the same switches as their famed S20 series commercial units. There are four snap-acting rocker arm switches. The main power switch is located in the center by itself. When this is turned on the heating element is activated. A separate orange ready light will then turn on. When the light goes off the machine is at operating temperature. The top left switch operates the pump and is also known as the brew switch. Turn on to start the brewing process and off when you are done. The middle button on the left is for dispensing hot water. The bottom left switch activates the steam function. When this is turned on the boiler will heat up to steam temperature. Then turn the steam/water knob located on the side of the machine and start frothing.

Cup Warmer

Preheating your cups is very important. The Silvia has a cup warmer that will hold up to six espresso cups. It is a passive type heater which means it is heated from the residual heat of the boiler.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Hot Water Dispenser

If you want hot water for any reason, be it hot chocolate, tea or Americanos it is very easy to do. Just turn on the pump (brew) switch and open the steam knob. Hot water will start to stream out.

New Articulating Steam Wand

The Silvia now comes standard with an articulating stainless steel steam wand, allowing a greater range of motion and making it much easier to use.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The large removable 2 quart reservoir can be refilled from the top any time during the operation, allowing for an endless supply of coffee or steam.

Thermostat and Safety Switches

The Silvia has three temperature controls. There are two thermostats and one high limit. There is one thermostat for maintaining brewing temperature and one for maintaining steaming temperature. The high limit will turn off the power to the boiler in the event of a malfunction. This prevents the boiler from overheating. The high limit switch can be reset and does not have to be replaced if activated.
