  • !!!SOLD!!! - FS Vibiemme Leveta Piccolo E61

    Time to part with some of my machines, Im building a new house and want to fund a Duetto for the new kitchen. So Im parting with my Vibiemme Piccolo Levetta. I have had new seals put into the group, makes great coffee, and has great steaming ability. Comes with one portafilter, and 2 baskets (single and double).
    Ive priced it the same as a Silvia, so the question for a buyer is, new Sivlia, or used Vibiemme with an E61 group.... $790

    Pickup is in Elwood 3184.

        Good morning

        Can I ask you the age of your machine and approximate amount of use?

        Thanks
        Steve

            Plenty! The Piccolo is about half the price of the Super Lever. The Piccolo has a small single boiler and the Super Lever is a HX machine with a large boiler. There are many other differences, but basically the Piccolo is a good beginners machine (or one step up) and the Super Lever is several steps up for those more experienced people who want something close to a commercial machine in their home.
            If you would like more info, why dont you refer to one of the sponsors sites listed on the left-hand side.

              Yes, I thought it would have gone also, somebody interstate PMd they might have a friend come for a look over Easter. Cheap way to get into an E61. If I still have it after Easter, its Ebay. I probably should have cleaned the lint off the chrome left from the paper towel in the picture

                      How long do these take to go from extraction to steam, I have VBM super lever at home and love it but I want a machine for work but cant justify the cost to get another HE machine, also how does the steam compare to HE models.

                        Hi Barry,

                        Factor in a minute or so and have it scaced as well (if it hasnt been). These are a great machine but do prime them as an element replacement requires removal of the boiler. Its not the end of the world though, just a little fiddly.

                        The Piccolo is a deadly shot machine.

                          I should be OK with such a machine as I have been using my Super Lever for a couple of years, but would this be Ok for people at work who have never used a manual before (with a little training) as I dont want to become a barista for everyone at work (small office about 5 coffee drinkers) or should I just wait for a reasonable S/H HE model to come up
                          (I am unsure of the forum rules but I am asking questions relating to purchasing this machine so I figured doing it here would be OK)

                            :-/ I wouldnt think so. Someone will forget to prime the boiler and you will be up for ~$200 each time an element blows. These need to be used with understanding and a workplace is the last place for a single boiler machine IMHO. In addition youre paying people to work, not stand around waiting at the machine.

                            This a perfect machine for someone who drinks mainly espresso with the occasional milky coffee.
