Rancilio Silvia V6
The Rancillio Silvia is one of the best 'single boiler' machines on the market. It will deliver first rate espresso to the true enthusiast for years and years.
The much loved Sylvia has been upgraded in the V6 version to feature a stainless steel frame and steam wand
This is the latest model available with the heating element made of steel (previously copper). The steel element is more resilient than copper. This heating element is screwed in the boiler instead of welded therefore it is easier to remove/replace if required in the future. This model now comes with an insulated boiler and changed indicator lights. Model E - will automatically turn off after 30mins of inactivity to conserve energy and help to protect the element. If the auto cutoff is activated and you switch the machine on again, it doesn't mean you have to wait 20mins for it to warm up again, as the machine will already be warmed (it may just require 1-2 minutes to get the machine up to brewing or steaming temperature). Model M - machine will stay on until you manually switch it off.
Dimensions: 235mm(W) x 340mm (H) x 290mm (D) machine body is stainless steel.

The Silvia uses an Electromagnetic vibratory pump that provides the exact pressures needed to deliver perfect espresso. Rancilio use commercial grade items from the pump to the boiler, and from the boiler to the grouphead. Ergonomic Switches Commercial-grade rocker switches with integrated indicator lights are featured on the Rancilio Silvia. The main power switch is located in the centre on the face of the machine. There are 2 indicators next to the main switch. The green light is to let you know the machine is on, and the orange one is to let you know the element is active. When the Silvia is first turned on, the orange light adjacent to the switch will illuminate. The light will remain illuminated until the machine is at operating temperature for brewing espresso, or steaming/frothing milk. On the left side of the control panel are the controls for brewing espresso (top), dispensing hot water (middle), and steam activation (bottom). allowing a greater range of motion. In under 35 seconds the Silvia is capable of getting 200ml of milk up to proper temperatures. Insulated Boiler The latest model Silvia now features an insulated boiler. This insulation improves energy consumption and will help maintain temperature stability. . The heavy chrome plated group handle and filter baskets (58mm), are identical to the ones used in the Rancilio commercial line. Cup Storage - the stainless steel cup stacking surface, located on top of the Silvia, is passively heated. Pressure Release System - the Silvia has a three-way solenoid valve which works by releasing any built up pressure in the group handle once an espresso shot has been made. This feature allows the machine to be prepared for making another espresso instantly.
