La Spaziale VIVALDI 2 S1 RED
The Vivaldi II falls under La Spaziale’s S1 lineup of home espresso machines, and is a substantial improvement over the Vivaldi I model it replaces (while offering most of the same core features so praised in the original). For its class the Vivaldi II is one of sturdiest and well-built machines in the market, packed full of functionality typically found in higher priced models. It is a dual boiler, single group head machine with highly precise and self-adjusting (to within half a degree Celsius) temperature controls, capable of consistently delivering exceptional espresso shots every time.
The Vivaldi II uses a professional rotary pump, requiring it to be plumbed in to operate (in contrast with the Mini Vivaldi II, which uses a smaller vibrational pump and cannot be plumbed in). It has a powerful no-burn steam wand (4-hole tipped) capable of quickly producing professional quality micro foam. Interestingly, La Spaziale has made all Vivaldi II models capable of running on either 15 and 20 amps (which can be set via an internal switch). Either amperage works great, but for users wanting extra fast boiler recovery time the additional 5 amps makes a noticeable difference.
Overall this machine packs a punch – and provides an excellent value for its price. While larger than the Mini Vivaldi II, and requiring a bit more effort to set up, it still fits on the average kitchen countertop. We consider the Vivaldi II to be an excellent choice for intermediate and advanced users, and a great upgrade from any entry level models you may be using. With the power and precision of the Vivaldi II you can conveniently and consistently brew the most superb espresso shots from the comfort of your home.
