The Rancilio Silvia M espresso machine has been recognised by home baristas as a great choice. The powerful boiler and the commercial size head make it produce a high-quality espresso. The espresso machine is nicknamed Ms Silvia and is a solid unit that is built using high-quality durable stainless steel. Add to that the doserless grinder and with fresh roasted decent coffee, you can have the coffee experience you want in your control.

Rancilio Heritage

The Rancilio Silvia M has a heritage of note. Rancilio is an espresso machine manufacturer, founded in 1927 by Roberto Rancilio in Parabiago, Italy. The Rancilio commercial range is well respected and known for its quality of espresso brew.

What we love

We really love this machine if you love espresso, and you want to make espresso at home this is our de facto standard. Everything is judge relative to this machine. Why?

  • It is a sturdy and well-established design.
  • The portafilter head is commercial size, so any commercial additions like, tampers, distribution tools, calibrated baskets and the like can be used as they would be in commercial machines.
  • It has a 300ml boiler, enough to make 5-6 espressos on a row with no real delay.
  • It has a boiler reset for if you forget to turn it off.
  • The temperature is remarkably stable, considering it has no PID.
  • It works well, is simple to use, and makes a great espresso.
  • For the price, there is nothing we feel that is near as good.

What we are not so fond of

For us the benefits of this machine outweigh the negatives, but if we had to be picky:

  • If you are of the clan of people that believe milk needs to be added to coffee, then there is typically a 2-minute delay between moving from steam pre to espresso per, unless you want to burn the espresso. Not to preach but this is an espresso machine. Espresso is coffee not milk.
  • We recommend that you have good grinder to get the most of this machine. This is a little like saying its best feature is its worst. It is a proper espresso machine. No thermoblocks, or pressurized baskets or fancy trickery needed, so you need to have a basic understanding of espresso brewing. We recommend the Baratza Sette 270.
  • The water tray is a little clunky to remove, and put back in

    The legend is true. What a great little machine. Had an issue with my commercial 1-group machine I had acquired at home, was a little nervous about this little baby, but she performs as well (if not better) than the commercial 1-group I used to have.
