Rancilio Silvia & pre-gound Lavazza Coffee

Recommended Posts

Hi All I am new here so sorry for this probably very basic question.
I have had 2 very basic semi automatic delonghi espresso machines over the last 4 years and i have happily made espresso and cappuccino on them using Lavazza qulita rossa. Sorry i know this is not how it should be done and i will eventually purchase a grinder. But for my current circumstance this espresso is "good enough" for me.
My circumstances at the moment do not allow for me to grind any beans - therefore i have to stick to Lavazza or Illy.

I am very keen to upgrade my espresso machine as i have had to dispose of the 2 delonghi units. I  would like a machine that can be serviced or parts replaced as and when they are needed. i am therefore planning on purchasing a new Rancilio Silvia.

  • Would this be a good investment, as i assume this is a reliable machine that can be repaired if necessary as spare parts seem widely avaialble?
  • For the immediate future will this machine be okay to make my current espresso and cappucino using pre-ground Lavazza coffee, until i have purchased a grinder (& my circumstance allow)?

Please help. Your guidance will be greatly appreciated
Thank you so much for your time
