I have been through a lot of machines in the past year. Coffee has become somewhat a hobby, having started with pod machines, and then moving onto automatic machines and then switching through several manual espresso machines. As I learned more about the brewing process what I started to notice is the more manual you go, the more control and flavour options you have.
After the fact I can say, learning to brew properly does take a bit of effort, but when you know what your doing you will not go back.
Out of all the machines I have been through, the Silvia will stay. Build quality is like a tank, no circuits, dependable, heats up in a couple minutes and makes a fantastic cafe quality coffee
I have paired mine with a Mazzer Luigi and am very happy. A few people here have pounted out that the base can rust and group head starts to peel, but other than that the boiler and internals are simple and should last a very long time if you take care of it.
Highly recommend this machine, but only buy it if you understand the brewing principles of grind, dosing and tamping.
