At Transcend we work hard to ensure that we source and roast coffees that we can be proud of and truly enjoy drinking. That same philosophy applies to the coffee brewing products that we carry. Espresso isn’t the easiest brew method to master which is exactly why it’s so rewarding to be able to make great espresso at home. We believe that the Rancilio Silvia can help you do that. The Silvia is home espresso machine built using commercial grade parts which enable it to reach the high temperatures necessary to brew great coffee, give it strong thermal stability and excellent steam power, and make it easy to service.

I have an older model of this machine, I think it is about 15 years old. It has faithfully produced delicious espresso and latte on an almost daily basis. It is easy to use. There is a large water reservoir, and it heats quickly. The only complaint I have is that I am not able to remove the steamer for cleaning, perhaps this has been changed on the newer model.
My machine has been serviced once (it was left on for a day and overheated). My Italian friend chastised me for taking it in, saying the fix is easy. It was fine though, servicing was not expensive and my machine was thoroughly cleaned.
If mine breaks down completely, I will purchase a new one.
