Former MasterChef judge, restaurateur, and coffee lover Gary Mehigan has joined forces with Rancilio Group Australasia as the ambassador for the new Silvia Pro range of domestic coffee machines.
Rancilio has long been regarded as an expert in the coffee machine industry, saying its Silvia coffee machine enjoys a “legend-like status”. Rancilio says at-home baristas can now celebrate the release of a new model, the Silvia Pro.
Gary says it wasn’t a hard decision to get behind Rancilio and the new Silvia Pro. A Rancilio Lucy coffee machine has been his “trusty companion” for more than 17 years, proving the adage “when you’re onto a good thing, stick to it”.
Gary is well known for making or breaking the dreams of aspiring amateurs on MasterChef and his prominent restaurants Fenix and the Maribyrnong Boathouse. However, within the industry he has established himself as a coffee connoisseur. He launched the Gary Mehigan Specialty Range in early 2020 with legendary Melbourne coffee roasters Veneziano.
The Silvia Pro is the first major model release to hit the market since Moffat Group and Rancilio Group partnered in late 2020 to form Rancilio Group Australasia.
The partnership has allowed two leaders in the foodservice industry to combine their strengths and deliver a new level of product offering and expertise to a global customer base. Now Moffat’s extensive distribution, service, and dealer network complements Rancilio’s expertise in the coffee industry. A strategic focus for the partnership has been developing the Rancilio portfolio of products, with the Silvia Pro leading the way.
Rancilio says there was obvious demand for the new equipment, with the original Silvia coffee machine still the “top-selling selling domestic espresso machine ever”.
Delivering the same exceptional performance as its predecessor, the Silvia Pro also comes with a dual boiler, an important feature highlighted during research and development. The addition of dual PID controllers, a digital display, and these two independent boilers come together to deliver café-quality espresso from the comfort of home. Semi-automatic dosing delivers the power to brew consistent shots of espresso every time. The dual boiler also gives users the ability to brew coffee and steam milk at the same time.
