The Brewing Process of the Rancilio Silvia
There are 3 switches to the left side of the Rancilio Silvia. The top switch is the “brewing switch”. When you are ready for a steaming cup of espresso all you have to do is turn this switch and heated water is then pumped to the brewing group.
Hot Water and Steam
The center switch of the three is for hot water. You turn this switch on, place a vessel underneath the steam wand, open the steam valve and hot water is then dispensed through the wand. The bottom switch of the three then turns on the steam function of the Rancilio Silvia. When the heating element goes off you then know that the machine is ready and is producing sufficient steam.
