    2006 model Silvia

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if the 2006 model Silvia has an adjustable OPV?

    I know the 08 machines do, but Im having trouble finding a definitive answer on the 06 one.

    Thanks,

    Lee.

    Yes Lee,

    You will be fine. The adjustable OPV has been in Silvias for quite some time ;)

    Bought mine in 2006. So it would have to 2006 or early model.
    It has an OPV.

    I assume you mean the adjustable OPV bassway?

    I know the 03 didnt, so I wasnt sure. Thanks.

    I thought the adjustable OPV first came out on the 07 model.

    Viviane, out of curiosity, do you know what the out of the box pressure was, before it was adjusted?

    Not Vivianne, but my early 2007 model had approx. 10.5bar before adjustment.

    The machine arrived on friday and it does indeed have an adjustable OPV. The pressure seems pretty close to 9 bar (judging by the overflow) but Ill check it with a pressure guage when I can.

    I dont know about out of the box, but when the machine was around 18 months old it started to produce very bitter espresso, and got worse over time. *It was tested then at 15 bar, the OPV was descaled and adjusted and the espresso went back to its usual sweetness. *The bitterness has come back, so Ill be having the OPV replaced as soon as I can get it back to cuppacoffee.
