    Rancilio Silvia LE 2010

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey guys,
    have been viewing threads since oct last year and the wealth of information available on this website is amazing!
    Im pretty determined to get the Silvia/Rocky combo after reading about it on Coffee Snobs. I went to the Rancilio webpage (worldwide) and have discovered this beautiful new Siliva LE 2010 and after searching here, have not been able to see anyones comments on it. Is that because its not for sale here in Australia yet?
    Its so beautiful with the gorgeous red "animal-safe" leather... Probably not that practical however...
    What do you guys reckon? Anyone know of stockists?

    Looks the same to me except for the trim. :-?

    "The Limited Edition 2010 features an exclusive Animal Safe leatherfinish in Bordeaux. This special material is exclusively synthetic and ecological, and certified in compliance with the strictest environmental protection standards."

    <rant>

    If you like the look of leather, you need to kill an animal!

    If you dont want to kill an animal, then select another finish. *::)

    </rant>


    P.S. Welcome to Coffee Snobs.

    Thanks :) and Yes, am a bit confused about the leather... animal safe should not be called leather, right? (I dont mind non-animal safe leather however).

    Wonder if anyone stocks it. Would love to see it for real.

    They dont call it "leather" they call it "leatherfinish".

    My thoughts exactly, think Ill just have to go for the regular one. Will they release a 2010 model in stainless steel or is the "leather finish" it...?

    as good as the silvia is, i was thinking about this earlier last year, they are about due for an actual NEW model. do you think it would be hard for them to incorporate a PID? it would open the average users mind a bit. anyone think its practical?

    it would bump the price up to the 1k mark, but still a good bit clear of HX machine.

    Imagine cleaning it... Why would you do it? And what would it look like a few years down the track...

    There R & D department much have been out for lunch when someone came up with that idea.
