If you are short on space in your kitchen but still want to drink quality espresso at home, the S1 Mini Vivaldi II Home Espresso Machine is what you’ve been waiting for. After receiving many requests for a non-plumbed version, we connected with the manufacturer to design this impressive, compact La Spaziale at home espresso machine.
Though mini is in the name, the list of features for this new La Spaziale at home espresso machine is long. The S1 Mini Vivaldi II Home Espresso Machine includes:
- Improved design with space for holding your mugs
- Excellent micro foam from the .9 mm four hole steam tip
- Programmable timer with multiple settings (optional)
- More accurate temperature sensing probe
- Dual manometer eliminates the need for a portafilter with a pressure gauge
- Ability to add a pre infusion chamber(optional)
- Programmable offset differential
NEW Design Features - The top cover has been redesigned to eliminate the plexi cup guard. The new top is much more user friendly; the cup guard could easily break, leaving a gap around the edges. This also lowers the overall height of the machine to just 15". The portafilters that come with the machine have also been redesigned. The machine comes standard with our famous 4 hole 0.9 mm steam tip.
The Vivaldi II Spaziale espresso machine one of our top selling Home Espresso Machines. We felt that with the number of request for a non-direct plumbed version we received, that it was worth going back to La Spaziale and working on a Mini Non plumbed version. After more than a year it is finally here and even better than we expected. It has the same great look of the Vivaldi II and performs equally as well, yet does not need to be plumbed in.
We thought the Mini Vivaldi II La Spaziale espresso machine was perfect like it was. Well, in 2008 we decided there were a couple of things we could do to improve it even more. We added Programmable + or - 8 degree Offset Differential and added an option to have a Pre Infusion Chamber installed on the group.
Here is a list of improvements made to Vivaldi II from Vivaldi I. All these improvements are included on the NEW Mini Vivaldi II:
Optional Pre Infusion Chamber Now you can add a Pre Infusion chamber to your La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi II espresso machine. This pre infusion chamber functions the same way a pre infusion chamber on an E61 group does. There is already a pre drilled and taped hole in the side of your brew group where the chamber attaches. You simply unscrew the plug that is there and attach the chamber.
Programmable Off Set Differential This allows you to set the LED temperature setting on the front of the machine to be equal to the temperature being delivered at the group rather than the temperature inside the group boiler. The original Mini Vivaldi II machines had this feature but it was only a 3 degree adjustment. Although we had not run into any problems setting the proper offset with this small range we figured since it is only a software change why not make it + or - 8 degrees therefore insuring there would NEVER be an issue. Note: We set it during the bench test of each machine prior to shipping so you don't have to invest in the expensive equipment necessary to perform the tests and setting.
Dual Manometer It is no longer necessary to purchase a portafilter with a pressure gauge to either check or make adjustments to your pump's output pressure.
Now able to put on a timer There is cord inside to plug in an OPTIONAL 7 day programmable timer into it. You can have the machine come on and go off at different times on different days. You must purchase the timer specific for the La Spaziale espresso machines. A standard digital timer will NOT work.
The Mini is equipped with the NEW .9 mm four hole steam tip as standard This NEW .9 mm four hole steam tip on this machine is one of the easiest to produce excellent micro foam fast and easy even with small quantities of milk.
Decreased delta What does that mean? The previous model would need to detect a temperature drop of one degree Celsius before the heater would be activated. The NEW Vivaldi II activates the heater with the detection of a temperature drop of just one half degree Celsius. Simply put, it makes the temperature accuracy that much more precise in the group boiler and enhances the steam boilers performance.
Updated temperature sensing probe The new probe is actually submerged directly into the boilers. This probe has proven to be more reliable than the previous style and has a quicker reaction time.
New LED display The previous display showed 5 degree increments, from 85 to 120 degrees Celsius. The NEW Vivaldi II displays in 1 degree increments, from 91 to 97 degrees Celsius.
91C = 195.8F
92C = 197.6F
93C = 199.4F
94C = 201.2F
95C = 203.0F
96C = 204.8F
97C = 206.6F
Differential adjust ability Programming allows you to set the temperature at the group to correspond with the LED. We test each machine and adjust the differential before shipping.
As of August 2017, this machine can only be used in 15 amp mode but will continue to have a 20 amp plug on the machine, so a converter cord will be included with all Mini Vivaldi machines.
