  • LaSpaziale Mini Vivaldi II- coming soon

    Hi all,

    Just a heads up that this one is on the way. Similar to the VBM Domobar Super Dual boiler PID, you get 2 boilers and temperature control at the group. As in the VBM, The tanked model requires a vibe pump due to available space. I am assuming that pricing will be somewhere between Minore II and VBM PID. The Vivaldi II plumbed rotary pump model is also in stock.

    Chris

    Specifications:[*]Dual boiler with 0.45 L brew boiler and 1.2 L steam boiler[*]Steam element 1250 W and brew element 800 W[*]Ball jointed stainless steel steam wand with 4 hole 0.9mm tip[*]Hot water wand- delivery via touch pad[*]Double and single 53mm portafilters[*]Volumentric touch pad and group temperature adjustable in 1.0 deg C. increments. LED confirmation[*]Vibe pump [*]Auto refill on boiler[*]Over temp. safety cutout and pump overload cutout[*]Fault diagnosis alarms[*]Boiler and pump pressure gauge[*]Black or Red[*]240V 10A

            They look a bit like Illy cups, if they are then evil-bay US had a few different Illy designs.
            I looked at this model too, the 53mm P/F wasnt compatible with all the bits n pieces I already had and I wondered if the .45L brew boiler wasnt a bit small?

            Then again Ill leave that detail to those in the know.

              The brew boiler doesnt need to be very big at all. Remember, youre extracting 60ml for a double, and youll still have 390ml to spare in the boiler.

              The non-standard 53mm baskets are a bit of a shame if youve collected a bunch of 58mm tampers, but Ive heard great things about the nectar they produce.

                nch of 58mm tampers,
                On the up side, youll finally be able to put the tamp on the front of your Grinder to use

                  Another bonus is that its almost impossible to get chanellling with the deep 53 mm baskets  8-)

                      would brew temp stability be an issue considering the relatively small brew boiler size?

                        chris - with the vivIIs - does having the electronic control of group temp mean that the following question is no longer relevant? and that is:

                        does the viv have a hx feed to the brew boiler from the steam boiler? (ala LM, minore) or cold water feed?

                        and if cold water feed, could you educate me (in simpleton terms) as to how it maintains tight temp control, with a smallish boiler, 800w element (for the mini) and cold water feed?

                        thanks v much

                          Hi Aaron,

                          I am 99% sure that it follows the same strategy- feed to brew boiler via steam boiler HX...

                          regards

                            thanks chris - that was what i assumed.
                            im still surprised given the size of the vivII why they would stick in such a small brew boiler?
