  • !!!SOLD!!! - FS: Rancilio Silvia V3 - PID and Naked PF MELB


    With much regret it's time to move on my Silvia, as I find myself with more coffee machines than I really need!

    She has served me well over the last 2 years, and I've taken good care of her - making around 10-15 coffees a week, and kept nice and tidy with a back-flushing routine. The last routine de-scale was two months ago.

    I've also given her some new tricks - most notably the PID, which I installed and painstakingly tuned in to get the best balance with recovery and stability. The temperature shown is approx 6-8 degree higher than at the group-head. She could make a good cup before the PID, but now it's so much easier - and you can dial in the temp you want to suit your beans. The mod has made no permanent changes, the PID sits in a little box that's hanging from the side - so it can be removed - if you want, I'm happy to do this (but I've got no idea why you'd want to...)

    I've also put in a lower profile shower-screen bolt - a flatter mushroom head (I've kept the old one too).

    Comes with a
    - naked PF
    - new ergo PF with a double spout (and a single in spout if you want to swap them)
    - 2 double baskets (14-16 gram and 16-18 gram)
    - 2 single baskets (6-8 gram and 8-10 gram)
    - Blink basket for backflushing
    - Gridenstein knock box
    - some cleaning powder

    All up going for $400, and my preference is for buyer pickup in Melbourne.

    If I've missed anything, feel free to ask!

    Wow thats a real bargain for someone - I thought that $500 used to be the near benchmark price for good condition Silvia's - now you've got PID'd ones with naked PF's etc at 20% less than that! Great buy for someone! GL with sale.
