Details

The Quick Mill Silvano is the culmination of a long collaboration between the internationally known Italian espresso machine manufacturer and their U.S. distributor. The result is one of the most feature-rich entry level espresso machines on the market. This machine is the most affordable PID featured machine that we offer, and with the added features of a dedicated thermoblock for steaming and a 3-Way Solenoid valve, it costs hundreds of dollars less than other similar featured machines.

Highlighted Features

  • 600 Watt coffee heater and 1000 Watt steam heat bank.
  • Adjustable PID controller with programmable offset for Coffee Boiler that is Fahrenheit or Celsius capable.
  • 3-Way group solenoid valve which de-pressurizes the grouphead allowing the user to remove the portafilter immediately after pulling a shot.
  • Steam bank can be individually turned off to conserve power; steam bank heats up in 2 minutes.

Standard Features

  • Two vibratory pumps with klixon thermal fuse for overheat protection
  • New adjustable expansion valve, located under the group. No need to remove the shell to adjust
  • Pump pressure gauge
  • Large, pull-out stainless drip tray with 46 ounce capacity
  • Solid state relay
  • Swivel steam arm with 1 hole steam tip
  • Uses E61 8mm group gasket
  • Removable drip tray and lid
  • Cup warming tray
  • Three stage power switch allows user to fill internal boiler without sending power to the heating element (prevents damage upon initial start up)
  • GICAR branded electronic water level control and reacts to a .02 of C of temperature change in the coffee boiler
  • Extremely large stainless steel drip tray which can be easily (slides out with pull of handle) removed for cleaning

Accessories:

  • 1 Double Spout Portafilter
  • Single Insert Basket
  • Double Insert Basket
  • Blank for Backflushing
  • We recommend purchasing a 58 mm tamper from the add-on items above

Pros

  • One of the most feature-rich machines at this price point from a high-quality manufacturer.
  • Dedicated steam bank allows plenty of steaming power on demand as well as the ability to steam and pull shots at the same time.
  • Small footprint leaves more countertop space (10.5" W x 13" D x 16" H)
  • Includes PID, a feature rarely included on a home machine.

Cons

  • Size of the water reservoir (2 Liters) isn't as big as the larger Quick Mill models.
  • Boiler size (.7 L) wouldn't be able to handle the production needs of a cafe, thus limiting it to a home setting.
