Do you want to paint it black? The option is now available to customize your Rancilio Silvia Pro in a Black Powder Coat, available exclusively at Prima Coffee.
Hey there, it's Ragan from Prima Coffee, and today we're excited to announce the new powder coating option for the Silvia Pro. This option puts the power of design and customization in the hands of the customer. So over the next few minutes, I'm going to explain to you what this means, why it's a good option to consider, and how you can go about getting your very own customized Silvia Pro. The one we have right here is coated in a matte black that is fingerprint resistant. This one along with a white option will both be available for a standard upcharge. But if you're looking for something that is more unique to your own style and personality, there will be a custom color option. You will get to choose any color off of the RAL color chart to get your Silvia Pro coated in. Powder coating is a lot like paint minus the solvent. So what they do is they take the powder, they apply it electrostatically, and then it's cured in heat. To put it plainly, it's a lot like baked-on paint. And just like anything that is painted or finished, it is susceptible to some scuffing over time. We found that that's what happens most frequently on the drip tray and the cup tray up top. Granted, we did make it an assertive effort to rough this thing up, but I will throw out some ideas on how to keep it looking in tip-top shape. First, if you can you can purchase a rubber mat, place it on here, and that will prevent your cups from rubbing against it and scuffing. But really just making an effort to lightly place items onto the tray rather than slide them on and off will keep it from scuffing. I also want to suggest a scale that works well with this. The Brewista Smart Scale II has a silicone padding on the back. So when you put it onto the scale, you can slide it back and forth, and you don't have to worry about it scratching it. To put it simply, just be nice to it, you know, don't throw porcelain cups at it. Don't take your cups and aggressively scrape it across. I don't know why you would do that, but those minimal efforts will keep it in tip-top shape. When it comes to navigating the purchasing process for the Silvia Pro in the powder coating, you will be given a color option before putting it in your cart. There'll be a black option, a white option, and then a link to the RAL color chart. If you're wanting a custom color, click on the color chart, scroll through, find the color that you like the most. There's a code attached to it, jot that down, and send that our way. Also, let it be noted that it does take longer to ship out with the powder coating. That's because our in-house technician disassembles the Silvia Pro, we ship it out to get powder coated, it's sent back to us, and we send it to you. The black or white takes about three weeks to ship out where the custom color can take upwards of a month. A few words of wisdom before I sign off is if you're going to do a custom color, Google search the code because sometimes the color doesn't come across on objects the way it does on the chart. Also, if you're needing this for a special occasion or on a specific day, make sure to order it well in advance because there is no next-day shipping. And lastly, you could only get it powder coated prior to shipping. If you've already received yours, it's no longer an option. That's about all I have to say about the new powder coating option for the Silvia Pro. But now you can make cafe-quality espresso on a machine that's just as unique as you.
