Hi, due to a recent purchase of a Rocket R58, my Rancilio Silvia E is available for sale. This is the 2016 model and it was purchased from Bella Barista in May 2016. It's a standard model, I've made no modifications to it. The machine is in excellent working order and in very good cosmetic condition with some marks on the metal top where cups, etc, were stored and on the drip tray, again where cups and portafilters have made contact. I live in a very hard water area but the machine has had a mix of bottled (Tesco Ashbeck) and Brita-filtered water for all its life. It was back-flushed weekly with Cafiza and descaled monthly (at the same point in the month the Brita filter got changed) with Liquid Dezcal. In addition to the machine itself, there are various accessories - mostly the standard ones: a Rancilio two-spout portafilter, a Rancilio naked portafilter, 7g and 14g baskets, and a rubber 'blind' for back-flushing. The machine will come in its original Rancilio packaging. If I arrange the courier, the price to send is £30 (I will refund any difference if the actual courier cost is less). Local pickup is also possible - I'm between Colchester and Ipswich. I'm looking for £325 for the machine and accessories. Thanks for looking.
The July Manchester Coffee Crawl just didn't happen for a number of reasons but.... A number of people have said they could make it for a later August date. The suggested itinerary is: 10:00 Ancoats Coffee Company 11:00 Foundation 12:00 Pieminster for lunch 13:00 North Tea Power (perhaps an adffogato for dessert) 14:00 Fig & Sparrow 15:00 Takk If there are alternatives you would like to see include speak up. Please bear in mind we are likely to have around 5 - 10 people so although Federal is a great ANZAC style place, it is just too small to host a largish group. Please indicate which date is your preference on this poll: http://doodle.com/poll/2b763rsf6b8879r3
Hi guys, For the perfect cup of espresso, the Silvia needs to warm up at least for 30-40 minutes. The European 2016 model E, shuts off the machine if idle for 30 minutes, according to European regulation. Has anyone managed to disable this feature? ... any sharing of research findings related to this topic would also be appreciated. Some say the power button is different on this model, compared to the older ones. I however doubt that just changing the button solves the problem. I hope to hear from you soon. Best regards, Georg
