Conclusion

The Silvia is not a beginners espresso machine: you can't just plug it in and pull a great shot. It needs practice to get the most out of it, but it rewards this with great performance and a killer shot of espresso. It doesn't have fancy features, but it has a boiler big enough to produce plenty of hot water and steam (although the single boiler does mean that you get some hot water with your steam). Overall, we were very impressed with the performance of this espresso machine, but that does come with a caveat of having to spend some time to learn how it works and how to get the best results.
