    Rancilio Silvia Maintenance

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

    Have been lurking on here for a while researching what machine to replace my well used Sunbeam unit.

    Well I settled on a Rancilio Silvia and picked up a second hand one earlier in the week. Unit is in great condition, under a year old and has had very little use.

    I have done a bit of research on a maintenance regime and understand that different cleaning products are required for back flushing and descaling. I would be interested to hear from other Silvia owners what products they use and recommend in their machines.

    Thanks

    Grant

    Would any products sold from our site sponsors do or are some better than others?

    I use Pully Cafe for back flushing but something like Cafetto or Cafiza would also work. I got Pully Cafe included with my machine purchase.

    I descale with Cino Liquid Descaler. Cafetto also offer a descaler

    I usually purchase these through Coffee Parts.

    I use Cafetto products from Coffee Parts.
    EVO powder to back flush.
    Restore to descale.
    Ive found them both good products and Coffee Parts are excellent people to deal with. :)
