How to Set Up a New Rancilio Silvia

Learn how to set up a new Rancilio Silvia, including how to install the machine, and how to properly heat it for the first time.

Install It

  1. Find a swanky spot in your home for your new machine to live, preferably where the morning sun can strike the mirror-finished housing so you can fully appreciate the bright idea that is your purchase.
  2. Get the power cord and the accessories out of the box.
  3. Plug the machine directly into an outlet. Don't plug it into surge protectors, extension cords, or timers.
  4. Fill the water tank.

Get it Good and Hot

It's time to get heated.

  1. Turn on the machine.
  2. Lock the portafilter into the group head.
  3. Wait 30 minutes.
