Mike Russo ♦ Bill...I would suggest you set your grinder at about three quarters of the way to the finest setting, and then adjust from there. Thanks.

What tamper would you recommend to buy with the Silvia?

Also, I'm thinking of buying this for an office. We're a small company (~15) and it probably won't get more than 4 or 5 uses a day. That should be fine, right?

Thanks, I'm a huge fan of you guys.

mjackson ♦ Noah,

It is a very good machine and should work well for that many drinks.I would not leave on for extended periods of time if possible with no use. It will work best with a 58MM tamper. Thanks for the business and your support.

Are these appliances wired for 120Volts? I live abroad and would like one shipped, but we have 220V. Is there any way you can order the 220V (or 240, or whatever) and have it shipped? If not, can you recommend a local dealer in Shanghai, China? Thank you.

On one of the reviews of the Rancilio Silvia, the customer said that she added a "PID" to her Silvia.
Please explain what a PID is and why the need for it and the additional cost.
Thanks,
James

Mike Russo ♦ James...Thanks for your interest in the Rancilio Silvia. A PID is not really needed to brew great espresso. I do not know what the cost of a PID is. Please keep in mind if you install a PID in the Silvia it will void the warranty. Thanks.

I founded out that my Silvia V2 always needs a finer grind with slightly more than 14g to hit the 20 seconds mark (using finest setting of my Rocky right now), I wonder if this is normal or I have to adjust the OPV or something else?

Recently when I go to use my Silvia, she trips the GFI. It's done it maybe 4 times. The first two times I hit the button on the wall and she worked. Now it just keeps tripping the GFI. What's happening with this? Can I troubleshoot on my own? I've read other comments on this problem and most say it's the boiler that needs replaced. Do I need to send it in? Or can I do it myself? Enquiring minds want to know. HOW MUCH?
I just want and miss my cup-a-joe in the mornings.

Missing my interaction with Silvia!

Thanks

mjackson ♦ Ada,

It could be your GFI or it could be the machine. Lets try it on a different outlet and see what happens. If it is the machine it could be your boiler or something else. If you call our technical line they may be able to help. If it is your boiler you can change it but it does take some effort and skill. If you give them a call they can get you the parts you need.

Would the Rancilio Silvia V3 & Rocky package be efficient enough for a coffee cart? or would I need to buy the Rancilio epoca?
What other good alternatives do you have of this package?

Thank you.

mjackson ♦ Luisa,

The Silvia while a god machine for home will not work for a cart. The Epoca is much better and will give you the benefit of being able to brew and steam at the same time. It also has a large boiler. If you need to make more then 6 or so drinks in a row or have to make more then about 60-70 drinks a day you may want to look into getting a two group machine. You may want to give me a call as I have a lot of experience with carts and would be able to help you. My name is Mark Jackson and I can be reached at 1-888-411-5282 Ext. 5196
