Video showing how to brew a shot on the Rancilio Silvia, including tips on how to "temperature surf" the machine by getting the boiler to cycle to it's top temperature (about 101C with a "float"), then running a bit of water to flush out the excess heat.
Shots pulled are "traditional doubles", pulling 60mls in 28 seconds, using Kid-O from Intelligentsia (I called it Black Cat by mistake once in the vid). Dose is about 17g in a Synesso 14g basket. Grinder used is the Anfim "Best" home grinder, about $420Cdn / $300 US.
PS - because of the white balance (shot under old florescent lights), the shots look blonder in the vid than they are. I'd say the colour in person was a mediumbrown / hazelnut tiger flecks. No blond dotting.
