Rancilio Silvia and Baratza Virtuoso Preciso Pack
Rancilio Silvia and Baratza Virtuoso Preciso Pack

How long does it take the Rancilio Silvia to warm up? Does it flush with water after warmup before the first shot can be brewed? Can it be plugged into an electrical timer so the machine turns itself on and warms up in the morning to save time? I need to be able to brew an espresso in about 2 minutes total from machine on to shot ready in cup - can this machine do that?

mjackson ♦ ow long does it take the Rancilio Silvia to warm up? IT takes about 8-10 minutes to be ready to use.Does it flush with water after warmup before the first shot can be brewed? You can flush it if you like with the portafilter to heat that up as well. Can it be plugged into an electrical timer so the machine turns itself on and warms up in the morning to save time? Yes it can. I need to be able to brew an espresso in about 2 minutes total from machine on to shot ready in cup - can this machine do that? If you use the timer you could.

The only thing you missed in both items is the outside dimensions. I need those to know if they will fit under the upper cabinets. Also there's my continuing question on "noise level". Since the grinder has reduction gears I'm hoping it's fairly quiet. Is that correct? Also I can't remember if we discussed to sound level for the Silvia V3 before. We've used a Braun Tassimo and currently are using a Kureg and a Cuisinart grinder (souolds like a siren) so please compare both the Silvia and the Baratza to the appropriate machine.
