I'm about to post my old Rancilio Miss Silvia espresso maker on something like craigslist. Is there anyone out there who likes espresso, would love to have a good espresso machine but wouldn't spend the OMG-too-much for one as good as the Silvia? |
I have a new one - a double boiler model that can make a latte quickly. The Silvia *can*, technically, make a latte - but it takes about a minute to get up steam pressure. So you can either steam your milk, and hope you cool the boiler enough to make good espresso, *or* you can let your espresso sit about 2 minutes while you steam your milk. So I splurged on the new one.
Because I'm going to sell it on Craigslist for about half retail (maybe a bit more, just to see if I can get it), but I'd just as happily give it to a friend (or decent acquaintance - offer void if you're an acquaintance because you used to steal my lunch money to buy heavy arms to steal the lunch money of small third world nations - or if you're using the espresso machine as part of your plan for ruthless dictatorship. Ruth was a good player, and deserves to be remembered!)
