Rancilio Silvia combines elements derived from the professional coffee machines to a single boiler without the heat exchanger typical of "entry level" domestic machines. The addition of a steel body and a professional filter holder, not to mention a steam lance with both horizontal and vertical rotation, allows to obtain espresso coffee and creamy cappuccinos like those of your favorite bar. Here we provide a short guide to correctly clean daily the Rancilio Silvia. The information comes directly from the Rancilio Silvia manual.
