The Rancilio Silvia is a commercial grade appliance that’s been compressed into a domestic body. The components are of the highest quality with the boiler, group head, steam nozzle, steam valve, and chrome filter holder constructed of press forged marine brass, designed to last.
The Rancilio Silvia coffee machine, manufactured by an Italian company specialising in espresso appliances since 1927, has rightfully earned its reputation as the best manual espresso machine available on the market.
Key Benefits of Brass
Key components of the Rancilio Silvia are made from brass – the group head, boiler and portafilter. This ensures longevity and very good thermal stability.
Thermal stability is required to get great espresso extractions. After pre-heating the appliance, the heavy brass components will not easily move from their steady-state temperature which helps the brew water stay close to the optimal brew temperature.
