1st In Coffee Recommends Rancilio Silva Espresso Machines

At 1st in Coffee we offer professional quality espresso machines, coffee makers, coffee grinders, espresso beans and supplies.  We are the coffee machine supplier who believes that your total satisfaction is our 1st priority.

The Rancilio Silvia Espresso MachineRancilio 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.

We purchased our Rancilio Silva espresso machine from 1st in Coffee because they have the largest selection and the best prices Rancilio silva brings one closer to espresso brewing and understanding the whole process of espresso making.

Why We Chose To Buy Our Pasquini Livia 90 From 1st In Coffee

Pasquiva livia 90 #2“When we left the northwest for a new life in southern California several years ago, my husband and I never knew that the thing we would miss the most was our daily espresso connection.  We were desperate to duplicate the morning eye-openers and for me, a personal escape in the afternoon.  Using our professional experiences, (I was a barista and he owned an Italian restaurant), we started searching for an affordable machine and quality ingredients that we could use in our home. 

After some trial and errors, we settled on the Pasquini Livia 90 espresso machine.  It’s semi-automatic and was similar to the one used in the restaurant.  We needed an uncomplicated machine that was fast and easy to maintain for my husband and I was looking for consistency in the shots as well as a powerful steam wand.  This machine provides all of the above.  We get a perfect thick “crema” each time, which proves quality to me and we can use the steam wand while brewing.  No one wants to keep a husband waiting for his espresso in the morning, ” says Judy Mills of Palm Springs, California.

“Surprisingly, with the Pasquini, there is no need for special plumbing for commercial outlets.  We have our own grinder also to assure a very fine consistency” says Mills.

We only use illy or Lavazza brand coffee, something we can order on-line from 1st in Coffee. We found that 1st in Coffee offers us the best value for what we want.

Why 1st in Coffee Only Carries The Best Espresso Machines

Espresso_Coffee Machine making espressoThe espresso machine is a unique coffee-making machine. It specializes in producing only the perfect cup of rich, creamy and frothy Italian espresso coffee drinks.

The technique used to brew espresso coffee is very specific.

An espresso machine uses a brewing method that forces hot water through ground coffee under high pressure, the water is then forced through the fine ground coffee.  The pressure can be generated by a pressure pump or by steam. Pressure mounted pump espresso machines are the best because they provide the most consistent pressure at the optimal brewing temperature.  The water is passed under high pressure through the freshly ground coffee which should be just below boiling point. This provides the maximum flavor and aroma for your coffee.  Additionally, the high pressure applied in the process sucks out bitter oils and actually releases much less caffeine than other brewing processes do. Only a really good quality espresso machine can do all this.

Pick An Espresso Machine That’s Right For You

Espresso 2 

1st in Coffee sells professional quality espresso machines coffee makers and coffee supplies. We’ve been in the espress machine bussiness for many years and were here to tell you that it’s no secret that espresso makers can range dramatically in price from as low as $20 for a stovetop maker or from $100 to more than $1,000 for a stand-alone espresso machines.

First, you should not immediately cast aside the Moka Express Hob Espresso Maker as a cheap imitation. In fact, this is the type that most Italian families every day and they do not feel the need to spend hundreds of dollars to buy a large machine when a $20 machine that has not changed in 100 years suits them just fine. It depends on your espresso astethic and the degree to which you like a creamier tasting espresso, that a more costly espresso machine gives. The difference between a $100 espresso machine and one that costs $300 to $1,000 is usually the brand, design, and especially how it touches the water, and ultimately how it tastes.

A less expensive machine runs hot water through a piece of metal. This can get the water hot, but it does not create the pressure used in a professional machine. For some espresso prepared in this way is the way they like it and that’s fine.

In contrast, a better machine, more expensive machine actually contain a small kettle of water that boils and as the pressure builds, is capable of doing a better job of extracting the coffee essence from the combination of temperature and pressure. The better machine have boilers with more complex and arguable better espresso mechanisms leading to a creamier better taste at a higher price.

When deciding to buy, try drinking coffee from all three types of machines and see if you can tell the difference. Then buy the least expensive espresso machine that is acceptable!

1st in Coffee features top quality espresso machines, super automatics, coffee grinders, frothers and coffee makers, including Jura, Capresso, Saeco, Rancilio, La Pavoni, Cuisinart brands.
