!!!SOLD!!! - FS: (Adelaide) Rancilio Silvia
I have recently moved to a HX machine over Christmas, and so am looking for a good home for Miss Silvia.
I am the original and only owner of this machine (a V3 from memory), purchased from site sponsor Coffee-A-Roma. I pull about 3-4 double shots a week, and like a true snob clean the showerscreen/flow disperser/group head regularly, backflush regularly, and descale when required. True to its reputation, the machine has been very reliable. The steam valve washer and vibe pump have been replaced, but everything else is original. Comes with bonus synesso double basket (my "daily driver" which I found works well with this machine) and blind basket, as well as the factory-supplied baskets, portafilter, and plastic-fantastic tamper. Cosmetically in quite good condition with two exceptions: paint is peeling/flaking under the LHS drip tray support, and a little bit of the white ink has rubbed off the brew button (see photo).
Pick-up only please from Gawler, SA (northern Adelaide). Price is $450 and in accordance with the rules, the machine won't be advertised elsewhere unless there are no takers here.
While I'm a quiet guy with a low post count, I have been purchasing green from Andy for many years and am a long-time member of the site.
