The Rancilio Silvia has earned a reputation for reliability in the domestic coffee market. Its successor, the Silvia Pro, offers what consumers love about the original with the technology to match. The first Rancilio Silvia left the factory in 1997. In the two-plus decades since, little has changed about the humble domestic espresso machine, which can still be recognised for its sleek and simple silver exterior. According to Paul O’Brien, Area Manager – Australasia for Rancilio, that’s because nothing had to.
