Recently, we purchased the Rancilio Silvia V3 on the Internet and had it delivered directly to our home. We had long wanted to get an in-home espresso machine so we could brew our own gourmet coffees in the kitchen, instead of having to visit our local coffee shop, or the Starbucks at the mall. With each of us spending five dollars a day just to have someone else make our coffee, it soon occurred all of us we could get a very nice machine from the money we would be saving make your own coffees, every day.
Crafted with Innovative Features
We searched online for a few months, attempting to decide which espresso machine would make all the perfect espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, and mochas we love. We had a limited budget of just over a thousand dollars, and began looking at all of the different coffee makers in that class. It was not until we found the Rancilio Silvia V3 that we realized we could get every feature we wanted, and then some, for a lot less money.
Apparently, The Rancilio Company has long been recognized in the espresso machine manufacturing industry as one of the leaders in innovation, design, and quality, and they sell their products at reasonable prices. It was exciting to see that when I took it out of the box, the coffee machine had exceptional heavy steel framework and featured a modern stainless steel exterior. The machine is very attractive, and is designed to function well and last a long time.
Commercial Grade Steam Wand
What we were looking for was everything that the Rancilio Silvia V3 has. Our new machine has a fabricated commercial grade Chrome Plated Steam Wand that delivers a tremendous amount of steam for milk frothing, and to boil water any time we simply want a good cup of Americano or tea. It also has a heavy-duty, commercial grade chrome plated brass PortaFilter, that creates a dry “puck” at the end of every espresso cycle, which is easy to remove and dispose of, without making a mess.
The Rancilio Silvia V3 also has a 64-ounce water tank. The reservoir comes complete with a filter, to allow for optimal clean water. It also has a pressure relief system, which utilizes a three-way solenoid to relieve pressure at the end of every cycle.
Professional Grade Brew Group
Rancilio installed the same professional grade Brew Group in my Rancilio Silvia V3 that it uses in most of their high-end espresso machines. While this brew group used to be an optional upgrade for the Silvia, it now comes as a standard feature in Version 3. Cleanup is simple, requiring only soapy water, and it has an automatic back-flush routine that cleans itself out every week.
Here are some typical Rancilio Silvia Reviews:
“The steamer is very powerful and I am getting used to it. That is the best part.” – L B, Amazon.com
“Rancilio Silvia is an instant hit! The fact that it is well made and has a large following is no accident.” – Glenn, Amazon.com
With its ability to brew the ideal cup of espresso, cappuccino, mocha, latte, and other gourmet coffees, the Rancilio Silvia V3 Espresso Machine is highly recommended for anyone interested in becoming their own in-home barista. It is suggested to purchase the coffee maker directly from the manufacturer, at their official website.
