You have to love the Rancilio Silvia: a small, simple and affordable coffee machine that brought thousands of amateurs into the espresso coffee world. In 1998, the first Rancilio Silvia rolled out of the factory and ever since, hundreds of thousands of them were sold all over the world. To celebrate this milestone, Rancilio launched the Rancilio Silvia Black Limited Edition. We were enthusiastic the first time we saw the first photos, the black gives the Rancilio Silvia a fresh look, despite its 20th year in the production line. However, this is as far as this new edition differs from the original Silvia E. Inside you will find the same 300 cl boiler, the same 'Eco' power switch that will turn the machine off after 30 minutes of inactivity, the same old school switches, and the same portafilter. 

One could argue that in 20 years time the Rancilio Silvia hasn't seen that much of a change it may have deserved. Back in our warehouse, hidden somewhere in our old coffee machine graveyard, there is a first edition Rancilio Silvia V1. Put it side-by-side with a new 2018 model and you would barely notice any differences. But does that really matter? Just marginally. Despite being still one of the best sellers in the domestic espresso coffee machine world, the sales for these types of machines have drastically decreased since 10 years, with a large portion of potential clients interested going for the more practical pods or capsules. If the Rancilio Silvia wasn't changed that much in all this time it means that it never needed to. The clean design, the toughness and the ease of use are the reason for the machine's past and present success. Why change it?
