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.
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.
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

We recommend purchasing a 58 mm Prima Coffee Tamper from the drop down menu above
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.
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.
