New set up
My new setup arrived today.
Rancilio Silvia M
Baratza sette 270
Pullman big step
Naked portafilter and 20g basket
Big question is.....What are people's thoughts on a wall timer? If you really stay on top of priming is it safe to use a timer.
Timer on your phone? That’s what I use
Sorry I meant one of the timers you can plug in to the wall so the Silvia turns on before you wake up.

It was the E i was thinking of. I would use a timer
Or you could turn on machine, turn on steam, then once warmed up the the higher temp run water through the group until it cools back down again. Worked a treat for super fast warm up on single boiler nemox (like a lelit).
The only thing is silvia group head is offset from the boiler, this may not be as effective. Worth a go.
Otherwise as long as you keep it primed (it became a habit to hit the brew switch before powering off) and your steam tap isnt leaking it should be fine.
Thanks for the advice everyone. Also I meant to ask about
Backflushing. I have some leftover cleaning tablets from my Breville oracle. Could I just crush those up and use them for backflushing the Silvia?
