Rancilio Silvia Pro Overview

Like the original Rancilio Silvia before it, the Silvia Pro makes brewing espresso easier, more consistent and better tasting. Simple controls and world-class precision make the Silvia Pro a fantastic option for coffee beginners or veterans alike.
Features and Performance
The Rancilio Silvia Pro features a stainless steel body and brass brewing unit, and has a width of 9.8 inches, depth of 16.5 inches and height of 15.3 inches to give it a limited footprint.
Top-of-the-line components like advanced dual PIDs that allow for a World Barista Championship-quality less than a 1°F variance in espresso brew temperature, while a 0.3 L brew boiler and 1.0 L steam boiler allow for simultaneous high quality espresso and milk steaming. Both boilers are also insulated.
Additional highlights include a built-in 2 liter water reservoir, adjustable height cup tray, hot water tap and high-performance steam via a multi-directional stainless steel steam wand and 1.5 millimeter 4-hole steam tip. Also included is a professional black wood tamper with stainless steel 58 mm flat base and an ergonomic double spout portafilter with single and double baskets.
Included functions like a programmed wake-up, shot timer, automatic backflush, brew and steam boiler draining and both temperature and voltage selection provide even more accessibility and convenience via a digital display to tie everything together.
