Details

Quick Mill upped the ante when they created this mid-level machine by packing many features found in much more expensive machines into the Silvano.  Priced under $1000, the Silvano has a lot to offer:  the Gicar PID offers incredible temperature accuracy for dialing in a perfect extraction, a thermoblock quickly provides abundant steam and can be independently turned off to conserve energy,  two dedicated pumps (one for the brew boiler and one for the steam thermoblock), and stainless steel construction looks great and will last a lifetime...to name a few.  The Silvano is a really classy little machine!

This video demonstrates the continuous steam ability of the thermoblock equipped Silvano. The thermoblock eliminates any lag time between pulling an espresso shot and frothing milk.

    Very Happy with Advice, Purchase, and Assistance

    Review by Julieta on July 7, 2013

    I purchased the Quick Mill Silvano espresso machine and the free "starter" kit that Venia sends along with this. I spoke with Keith on the phone before buying this machine, although I had already done a fair amount of investigation on my own. He was very helpful and explained all details clearly. Based on his input I purchased this machine and am glad I did. It works like a dream. I have been making cappuccino and lattes for the family for the last week or so and have worked out the kinks. The tamper Venia sent is great, heavy and comfortable in the hand and makes a smooth finish. I also really like the square peg coffee they sent. It seems a little more chocolatey or mellow than the Rustico coffee I had from Counter Culture. I will get some more of that. My grinder had to be recalibrated as the shots were coming out too fast on the finest grind, but that was easy. Temperature consistency is great, lots of crema, you can turn around and do milk as often as you like, presumably thanks to the thermablock feature. Cleaning and filling are easy, pressure is about 8.5 to 9 bars on a shot. There is no light (had to use a flashlight to see the color of the tails of coffee) and no water dispenser. On the other hand, no plumbing either. Perfect for professional performance at home. The machine is shiny and attractive. Don't think you could fit it under cabinets and still put cups on top, but doesn't take up much space on an open counter. Follow up service has also been excellent--you can call with any question and get quick and knowledgeable response. Thank you.
