  • Rancilio Silvia or bezzera bz99??

    Hey everyone
    Im ready to buy a good second hand machine and these two machines seem to be popping up as a pretty good choice. Which one do you think is the better machine? And is a bezzera too solid and commercial for a domestic machine? Im moving on from a sunbeam and willing to spend around 500, so any other options for me?
    Any help really appreciated.
    Thanks

    Very different machines. The Silvia is about $500 new, and great value, as long as you get a decent grinder with it.

    The bezzera is more like 3-4 times the price, so not a fair comparison.

    If your price range is 500 then you really can't go wrong with the Silvia. For many people it's the next machine when moving from a sunbeam or breville.

      From looking around on gumtree and ebay ive found the silvia is cheaper, normally getting a decent grinder with it for 600 (second hand). Or the bezzera itself goes for around 500 or a bit less. In saying that, they are often 10 years old. I have a sunbeam cafe series grinder at the moment, so the combo would either be a) the bezzera and sunbeam grinder or b) a silvia and a slightly better grinder. Roughly the same price spent... Thoughts?

        better grinder will probably give you better shots than the better coffee machine with your current grinder
