Question about Rancilio SILVIAespresso&cappuccino machine
Maybe you are (a) putting in too coarse a grind - try grinding it much finer (you really should have a Rancilio Rocky grinder), or (b) you are packing it too loose. Try putting more coffee in. I fill it level with the top of the holder, then take off a small amount with my finger to produce a kind of downward dished surface. Then tamp it fairly hard. You need a HEAVY tamper for this.

I recently cleaned my rancilio silvia by backflushing. However, I forgot to flush the system afterwards (the boiler was on) and I think the cleaning powder has baked somewhere and caused a blockage because no water comes through the group head. I can get water out the steam wand OK. Is there a product that will dissolve? Not sure just descaling will work because there isn't an end to end flow. Anybody got any suggestions how I can remedy short of taking the think apart? I

I get recently roasted coffee at the local coffee shop and have them grind it past espresso to turkish. It creates a much better creme. Also, make sure you tamp the coffee in the porta-filter. I think 30 lbs. is recommended.

There are two class of expresso coffée: one produce crema and the other none. A 9 sec shot, means you are putting ground coffee that are way too coarse. The Silvia requires coffee grounf extremely fine, near powder texture.
Hope this help
