Rocket v. Silvia

If you drop $1k more on your espresso machine, is there a discernible difference and / or improvement in the shot quality and flavor? We dialed in the Rocket Giotto Evoluzione and the Rancilio Silvia, pulled shots simultaneously and asked three of our fearless compatriots to taste them. Watch as they tell us which they prefer and why.

    Conclusion: There’s no better or worst… whichever you like best (Proof? even some people like Starbuks!)

    Hi Guys
    I’d be interested in seeing another blind test but with the Rancillio fitted with a PID to see if it makes that much of a difference.

    What ya fink?
