The Rancilio silva espresso machine is what every espresso drinkers and baristas or even baristas wannabes want to have. In fact, it is said that Rancilio has more impact on quality espresso in the US than any other machines out there. A Rancilio silva espresso machine is different from a lot of espresso machines now, you do need a certain amount of experience to use it
It is not hard to learn the handling of a Rancilio silva, however there is a learning curve. The very first thing to better your shot using a Rancilio silva is to have quality grind.
1st in Coffee recommends using illy coffee or Lavazza the two finest espresso beans available anywhere.
The next important thing you need to note is the brewing temperature. The small differences in water temperature affects the quality of espresso. The on and off range of temperature is known as the “dead band controller” producing varying brew head temperatures between 210 and 240 degrees. A good extraction requires brew head temperature at 220.
To get the right temperature for the Rancilio coffee makers, you would need to start your espresso coffee extraction at the right point:
1. Turn on the machine, put in the coffee handle and bring it to full temperature.
2. Load your espresso ground into the coffee handle
3.Open the steam wand valve and flip the hot water switch
4. When the orange light (in front) comes on, start your timer, turn off the hot water switch, and close the steam valve.
5. After 1 minute passed, shot the espresso, personally I feel that a good extraction time is between 20-25 seconds.
While knowing this temperature brew head tips would not make you the best coffee, as you learn more about espresso brewing, this is one crucial step in getting quality espresso.
