  • Newbie: Espresso Machine Question

    Hi, I am new here & I am looking to purchase a Rancillio Silvia machine and when looking at the local website (sydney) I saw another machine that they currently have on sale for $699 same as the Silvia. It is the Java Espresso Perfecto, has anybody had any experience with this machine or am I better to stick wih the Silvia as everybody seems to recommend.
    Thanks, any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    You never really know do you. So relly the basic question is Do I buy this car that has a good track record of reliability or do I buy this new car that I really know nothing about.
    Im glad its your decision Rickster. I just dont know matey, Is there any info on CoffeeGeeks IRT Java Espresso Perfecto? Read the reviews

      Hi there,
      I have purchased from Sienna coffee before. Ask them if its possible to arrange for a home trial for a couple of days. Ask the salesperson if the machine has been re-badged, as there does not seem to be much info on this machine around.

      Will you also be purchasing a grinder from them?

      I purchased the Cunill Tranquilo from them ... very good service. Was just checking out the current price, seems to have gone up from the time I made my purchase.

        Because of the lack of info id probably lean more towards a Silvia but hey Im Biased

        But I have heard Sienna service is very good. We nearly brought our Rocky grinder from them.

          I have an Imat Napoletana 2. The new version is now known as the Mokita Combi & I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a good espresso machine with in-built grinder for $700. But if you have $1200 for a Silvia & a Rocky go for it.
