Welcome to Silvia School!


The Rancilio Miss Silvia is renowned as the best sub $1000 single boiler home espresso machine on the market. With a solid brass boiler, group head and portafilter it is a commercial grade machine designed for your home.

The Silvia is a terrific machine and with a bit of practice you’ll be able to make coffee so good you won’t want to go to a cafe again.

To help you get the most from Miss Silvia we’ve put together a series of online lessons. We’ve got some of the basic skills on the site already and plan to add lessons for the following very soon:

Start with the introduction

- Pouring Latte Art
- Temperature Surfing
- Trouble shooting your shots
- Temperature control & PID Kits
- Using a naked portafilter
- Types of espresso based drinks

More coming soon!

We hope you enjoy these lessons.
