Finally parting with my beloved Miss Silvia after all these years. Received as a gift in ~2009. Don’t let her age fool you though – she spent three years in storage when I lived abroad, and another five years in storage when I lived in a place with a tiny kitchen. She’s probably had about three years of daily use in all. Recently descaled and she’s still in great condition. While she pulls an incredible shot, I have moved on to a superautomatic for convivence as it’s a better fit for my life these days. Heavily debated keeping Miss Silvia for occasional use but I think she’ll be better off being loved in a new home. On small modification! I changed the brew switch to be a momentary press switch: you have to hold it during brewing. I typically used a timer to turn on & preheat the machine while I was still sleeping, and once I left the brew switch on and woke up to a horrible mess of water everywhere. The original switch is included and easy to swap out.
