The Gaggia is probably a bit more forgiving for grind variation, and its steam wand is foolproof for those not looking to fine-tune their frothing. But the Silvia is built like a Sherman tank and is dependable--it's my backup machine when my LaCora (Andreja Premium) is in the shop for its annual tuneup.
