Quick Mill Silvano Steam Capacity

Posted on March 20, 2012 by Venia Coffee Roasters | Keith There have been 0 comments

We have taken quite a few questions about the steaming capability of the Quick Mill Silvano.  The Silvano uses a Thermoblock to produce steam as apposed to a dual purpose boiler (like the Rancilio Silvia) or a dedicated steam boiler (like the Izzo Alex Duetto or Vibiemme Double Domobar).  The below video demonstrates the continuous steam capability of the thermoblock.

An espresso machine like the Silvano that is equipped with a thermoblock is able to immediately switch between brewing espresso to steaming milk.  A thermoblock also uses less energy than a dedicated steam boiler as steam is made on demand (as opposed to continually keeping a steam boiler hot, even when not in use and the machine is powered on).

If you have any suggestions or questions that you would like to see on video, fill out the Contact Us form and let us know.
